Sponsorship marketing may sound like a new promotional tactic to some, but in reality, it’s a common business practice that many entrepreneurs already utilize. By donating to and sponsoring local individuals and organizations, businesses are able to help themselves and their communities. As an example, the Greater Twin Cities Honda Dealers (GTCHDA) and Northwest Honda Dealers (NWHDA) have begun donating money to local schools. In the end, they’re likely to see countless benefits from doing so.

Advertising is a fickle industry. Sometimes, ads are viewed as works of art unto themselves, and cause us to laugh, cry, and experience every emotion in between. Other times, we download third party software with the explicit intent of never seeing an ad again. Some ads utilize data to inform, entertain, or even aid us, while others embody an almost stalker-like presence through their targeting. All ads, however, share one common trait: they are a mirror of our inner desires.

Data takes on many forms. Sometimes, data can look like a synthetic life form on the USS Enterprise. Other times, like a gadget-wielding little boy in the Goonies. But more often than not, we envision data as long strings of integers that stretch out to infinity and come accompanied with the dial-up Internet noise. While data is integrated into nearly every facet of our lives, there still remains a disconnect between the numbers and how they’re presented. I mean, all a baseball pitcher really has to do is stand on a hill and throw to another player, but their stat sheets make it look like they’re coding the next Apollo mission at the same time. This is precisely why I take notice when a company is able to blend data and marketing so effortlessly, or at least make it seem that way. Here are some examples that showcase the versatility of data presentation when it comes to company branding.
