Benefits of Sporting Events Banner
“Nobody counts the number of ads you run; they just remember the impression you make.”
– Bill Bernbach American Advertising Creative Director
There are many benefits associated with sports banners. They are a great investment and are great for marketing and promotions. The benefits of a sports events banner include the following:
1 – Establishes a Presence
Having a sports event banner is a great way to establish a presence – particularly for those sports teams that don’t have a permanent venue to call their own. It’s great with helping sports teams become recognizable.
2 – It Allows Coaches, Managers, and Owners Further Promote Their Team.
As indicated above, having a banner at a sporting event promotes your team in a whole new way.
When using a banner to promote your team at sporting events you can also get creative by adding the team’s logo as well as any marketing messages that you may have. In addition to that, you can also add the logos of any sponsors that you may have as well. This allows fans to have a visual of who’s playing and will help them better determine which team represents which side of the court or field.
When using your team’s color scheme, it enhances visual recognition, which also increases your team’s branding.
3 – Earn Additional Streams of Revenue
Something that most coaches, managers, and team owners don’t think about, is that once you have artwork and designs created, the images and graphics associated with your team can help you earn extra income. How? You can start selling smaller versions of the banner to fans and followers. They can then begin displaying them while attending the games to show their support.
Basically, selling smaller versions of the banners along with taking advantage of sponsorship opportunities are both great ways to add additional revenue streams to your organization.
The additional income is also a way to supplement your primary income sources. For example, you could use the additional income to add additional activities to what you already offer, such as photo opts. You could have each team member take a photo wearing their team uniforms in front of the new sports banner and sell them to each of the players.
4 – Use the Extra Funds to Cover Additional Expenses
After you begin to generate additional revenue streams, you can then use the extra income to purchase other items that your team may be in need of, such as equipment, team uniforms, or to rent sports venues.
5 – Recoupment
Another benefit is that you can recoup some of the upfront cost that you’ve spent in various areas. What that means is that by generating additional income streams of income, you can use the additional income to cover the initial upfront costs that were spent to pay for the banners.
6 – Attracting Sponsors and Offering Sponsorship Opportunities
Having banners made is a great opportunity to attract sponsors. In fact, it could be mutually beneficial as many businesses are always looking for opportunities to advertise their company and expand their reach.
When designing your banner to be displayed at sports events you can leave enough space for sponsorship opportunities. Any space that is not occupied is an opportunity to generate additional income from sponsors seeking additional advertising outlets.
Simply provide a sponsorship package utilizing the extra space that is available on the banner – increasing the value of each space. For example, the space that offers the most exposure on your banner would pay a higher amount than those that provide low exposure.
Sponsorships are also a great way to form and build long-term relationships, which lends itself to repeat opportunities.
7 – Transportable
Although our team of experts will ensure that your banner for sports events will be made with great durability, it is also very transportable. This means that you can easily take your sports banner with you, regardless of the sports venue or where your team may be playing.
In addition to that, these banners are very easy to set up, which is helpful for those teams that travel a lot and are always on the road.
Determining the right size for your Sporting Events Banner
When deciding on the right size for your sports banner, you should keep a couple things in mind to help you better determine which size is best for your team.
If your team often plays inside of large venues, then a large banner is probably best for you. They can be seen from across the venue and are very convenient.
To that end, they can easily be tied to a wall at many sporting venues in most cases. The larger the venue, the larger your banner will need to be so that it can be seen from those in the audience where ever they may be seated.
If you’re not able to tie or have your large banner mounted to a wall, you can also use a stand along with a sturdy base to display your large banner.
Large banners can also be used outdoors or indoors during smaller settings, it’s just that at larger venues it’s really important that you have a banner that’s large enough to be seen from anywhere in the venue.
Most venues can accommodate you and normally have what you need to display your banner in their venue.
If your team typically plays outdoors or in small settings then that’s when a smaller banner may be more suitable for you.
You can have the smaller banner displayed with a sturdy, portable stand that can hold up on the sidelines.
These cost-effective stands are as reasonable as they are affordable. They also make attractive frames for your smaller banners as well.
