Southwest Airlines sought the help of Navigate Research in order to understand and measure the effectiveness of each of its sponsorships packages.
Southwest purchased Navigate’s online proprietary tool, The Sponsorship Navigator™, which allowed Southwest to evaluate their current and potential sponsorships. The Navigator measured a number of elements, such as– TV, radio, online, social media, signage, hospitality and earned media.
The Navigator allowed Southwest to calculate the fair market value for each of its current and potential sponsorships. In turn, Southwest was able to quickly asses the performance of its packages, as well as evaluate any potential sponsorship opportunities.
“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
