M Squared has the cross-functional expertise and domestic market intelligence to provide real-time industry analysis as well as sponsorship and partnership valuation.
A core strength of our approach is navigating the complex, rapidly evolving and often cluttered sports business landscape to determine the undervalued assets to include in integrated marketing partnerships, creating significant added value to both the buyers and the sellers.
Blending over a decade of industry knowledge with a deep understanding of how both the buyer (brand) and seller (property/athlete) define a successful partnership is a uniquely valuable combination of expertise and experience.
Those insights, combined with M Squared's core strength of recognizing the best combinations of marketing, promotion, and activation to reach each target demographic will provide the client a tailored, dynamic, fully integrated partnership strategy.
In both individual and team sports, the experts at M Squared Research have demonstrated success in 360° evaluation and improvement planning strategy. On the field success stems from analyzing performance data and targeting areas for improvement over the competition, while off field success is measurably enhanced by personalized media training. M Squared is available to developed specialized programs to meet the exact needs of an individual or group of athletes.
Sporting competitions are public spectacles, and the jewel contests are often surrounded by a series of other events supporting and celebrating the athletes, teams, leagues, fans and sponsors. The founder of M Squared has extensive experience working within the PGA TOUR and NCAA landscapes, both of which are comprised of nonprofit entities and events. Leveraging this strong background, we are prepared to create a new event plan, enhance and elevate an existing event or thoughtfully and authentically incorporate a charitable initiative into an athlete’s public calendar of events.
