3 Reasons to Use the Recommendations Tool

  1. Streamlining the Selection Process: One of the biggest challenges for brands is identifying the right athlete or influencer to partner with. OpenSponsorship's recommendation tool simplifies this process by utilizing an algorithm that analyzes a brand's Instagram account. By typing in their Instagram handle, brands gain access to a vast database of over 17,000 athletes, enabling the tool to recommend athletes who align with the brand's values, target audience, and overall image. This streamlines the selection process, saving brands valuable time and effort.

  2. It Leads to Tailored Partnerships: Every brand has unique goals and requirements for its partnerships. The recommendation tool on OpenSponsorship takes these factors into account, providing brands with personalized suggestions based on their specific needs. Whether a brand is looking for an athlete with a certain follower count, engagement rate, or expertise in a particular sport, the tool can generate a list of athletes who meet these criteria. This tailored approach ensures that brands can find athletes who are an excellent fit for their campaigns, maximizing the potential for a successful collaboration.

  3. It Utilizes Data-Driven Insights: The recommendation tool on OpenSponsorship is backed by robust data and analytics. Brands can access detailed metrics and performance indicators for each recommended athlete, allowing them to make informed decisions. This valuable information includes audience demographics, engagement rates, previous sponsorship success, and more. Armed with these insights, brands can evaluate the potential impact of their partnerships, measure the return on investment, and make data-driven decisions that align with their marketing objectives.
