Why should businesses advertise with the Swindon Wildcats?

Deciding on your business' advertising and marketing plans can be incredibly difficult, but have you ever considered advertising with one of Swindon's local professional sports teams? The Swindon Wildcats Ice Hockey Team provide a five-star unique advertising service that gets your brand exposed to the local community and in front of the people you want. Find out more about why advertising with the Swindon Wildcats might be the perfect choice for your business.

Read below as Swindon Wildcats' Commercial Manager, Sally Price, answers the all-important questions on why you should consider advertising with the Swindon Wildcats...

How does sponsoring a professional sports outfit compare to advertising with other organisations?

I believe that advertising and sponsorship are different in so many ways. Advertising is simply displaying an advert and hoping it will gain business from the exposure, where sponsorship is about building a mutually beneficially relationship between two parties, where you offer business support, a customer care plan alongside the brand awareness to increase the ROI. 

By supporting a community-focused organisation such as the Swindon Wildcats you will naturally raise your company profile. In a time where 71% of customers prefer buying from a company that aligns with their values, supporting the Wildcats can strengthen the perception that you care about the same things your customers do, their community, their home team, and their social life. Swindon Wildcats also have one of the largest junior hockey programs in the UK and pride themselves on local community involvement

For me sponsoring a pro sports club brings all these great things, we won’t just display your brand in the hope you may get some business from it. 

Sports sponsorship is more of a personal touch, you get a dedicated marketing plan put in place to help you achieve your company goals and get the very most out of your sponsorship.
