ESPN sought the help of Navigate Research to assess the effectiveness of a Scotts Home and Garden partnership.
Navigate conducted a sponsorship and qualitative research study on behalf of ESPN. The study consisted of online panel interviews with MLB viewers and non-viewers. It also featured in-home app based interviews, which were tracked real-time during selected broadcasts.
ESPN and Scotts received unbiased feedback about the MLB partnership. The qualitative work provided never before seen insights into the viewing audience and its engagement with the sponsor and the property while viewing on TV.
“Throughout our recent RSL jersey-front sponsorship selling process, we exclusively used Navigate Research for the partnership valuation. We had substantive C-level discussions with four separate companies, and not one person ever questioned the validity or legitimacy of any of the data or valuations that Navigate Research provided.”Andy Carroll
