Winmo, North America’s leading provider of media/marketing sales intelligence, is expanding its role in the sponsorship sellers’ toolkit, integrating spend analysis from sponsorship analytics leader Hookit directly into its advertiser profiles.
While Winmo, a product of List Partners LLC, provides verified decision-maker lists for those who control sponsorship dollars at thousands of brands, Hookit details where those dollars are being spent, plus the entities involved.
“Sponsorship sellers rely on specific information to qualify opportunities and develop pitches that lead to sales,” said Dave Currie, CEO of List Partners LLC. “Our Hookit integration demonstrates how we’re strengthening our Winmo feature set to serve the needs of this specific audience, instead of giving them a one-size-fits-all sales intelligence product.”
In all, San Diego-based Hookit measures $5 billion in previously unknown sponsorship value each month, quantifying deal amounts that brands receive from athletes, teams, leagues, venues and events. With a breakdown of these allocations in Winmo, sponsorship sellers gain a 360-degree view of a potential sponsorship partner.
“Sponsorship sellers rely on Winmo to research potential partners and decision-makers, and they can now conduct competitive analysis, see who a brand they’re approaching has worked with, and where they fit into that overall strategy,” said Brian McCue, Senior Sponsorship Sales Director at Winmo. “This will not only result in time savings, but more informed pitches for improved sales outcomes.”
Hookit data in Winmo sheds light on percentages of sponsorship spend across teams, leagues, venues and events, with additional data on specific partnerships and sample promotions.
The integration is currently available to all sponsorship clients on Winmo’s top-tier subscription package, who will see Hookit’s analysis of sponsorship spend as well as sample promotions on some 2,000 select brand profiles in Winmo.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Winmo,” said Hookit Chief Revenue Officer Kimberly Cook, “and to be providing key information their sponsorship clients can use to win more business, be it through events, sports partnerships, venues or additional partnership channels.”
