When Your Brand Wants Customer Loyalty That Lasts
NPAFE knows that the best brands want to reach the best audiences, so we’ve customized the sports marketing model to fit the 40-million-person universe of people who love the Performing Arts.
Our focus is squarely on how NPAFE-partner performing artists capture and influence those preferred audiences, who they are, how many, how often they are in the room, and where those audiences direct their customer loyalty.
It’s a compelling picture, even when compared to sports audiences. Over one-half (56%) of those following the Performing Arts say they would “Almost always” or “Frequently” buy a product sponsoring arts or cultural events over one that does not. Only 36% of NFL fans, 34% of America’s Cup enthusiasts and less than one-fifth (17%) of Olympic Games audiences would choose products based on their sponsorships.
Almost one-half (48%) of Americans with an interest in Performing Arts indicated that they hold a “Higher” trust in companies that sponsor these events compared to those who do not, while only 16% of Olympic Games enthusiasts claim a “Higher” trust in their sponsors.
