How it Works
Hookit helps you optimize your sponsorship portfolio
We Track the Data That Matters
Technology is changing the way people consume media, including live sports and entertainment. Most adults now watch TV with a 2nd screen in hand. Social & digital media have eclipsed traditional media in exposure & activation spend.
As a brand marketer, you know this. That’s why “Social Promotion” is the 2nd most popular sponsorship ask behind “Category Exclusivity”. In-event activations by themselves aren’t enough anymore in today’s world of the connected fan. You have to reach them where they are, online.
Leveraging sponsorship assets through social media has become a must. This is where every fan engagement is measurable and trackable, so you can know which partners are promoting your brand and who is doing it the best to help you engage your target consumer.
