Hospitality and a warm intro to new demographics.

Let's be honest, corporations have a tough time integrating into communities they aren't personally familiar with. Companies seeking to expand into new markets understand this, and who better to introduce your product than a trusted pillar of the community, the local athletic star?

As a business, you might need to travel to particular areas for promotional purposes or perhaps you want to expand there. However, there are times when the locals may not be eager to welcome you into their neighborhood, which could cause a great deal of issues. Being represented by a brand such as sports or athletes that the locals adore and respect will be a huge advantage. It is important to not underestimate the respect and love that athletes command in this situation. If you are supported by an athlete or a sport they love, locals will pay attention to you and be more than eager to allow you to develop into their community.

Nike partnered with Michael Jordan to do this very thing, Adidas partnered with Kanye West, and so many other brands have utilized influential people to gain credibility and loyalty within new or sector driving communities.
