1.1 Background Of Study
Corporate Sponsorship Promotion is the fastest growing marketing communication strategy. The growing demand and practice of this strategy by organisation is as a result of the growing influence of marketing communication as a one stop strategy in creating sustainable demand and excitement for an organization’s product and services.
A large number of organisations in different industries these days view corporate sponsorship promotion as an undisputed marketing, public relations and advertising strategy for promoting and raising the image credibility and demand for an organization’s products and services in competitive market. Corporate sponsorship promotion allows organization to reach specifically targeted niche markets by providing for the customers and the society. In addition, it is a powerful complement to other marketing programmes, having a dramatic influence on customer relations and satisfaction.
Corporate sponsorship promotion offers the possibility of achieving several goals at once. These include, enhancing image, shaping customer attitudes, driving sales, creating positive publicity, heightening visibility, differentiating from competitors, projecting corporate citizen role, enhancing customer relations; and

above all, improving customers’ status or changing the face of the society.
According to Okoro, (1998: 154);
In today’s business, whether profit making or non-profit making; sponsorship has become a forceful marketing tool. In programmes, products, events, and movements, innovations abound in structure, style, nature and momentum of sponsorships. Today, the promotional strategist has an inexhaustible opportunity to promote his goods, via programmes and special events that pull the target market
All over the world, there have been pronounced changes in view of many
corporations about Marketing, Public relations, Advertising, and corporate
sponsorship promotion, which have paralleled and partly reflected the rapid
movement toward the process of integrated marketing communication (IMC).
According to Belch and Belch (2004:9), “Integrated marketing communication
involves the coordination of the various promotional elements and other
marketing activities that communicate with a firm’s customers”.
Don E. Schultz in his contribution to the ‘Marketing News’ (January 18, 1993:17):
recognized the America Association Advertising Agencies (the ‘4As) definition of
as one of the first developed definition of the concept. Quoting the 4A’s definition,
Schultz defined integrated marketing communication as,
A concept of marketing communication planning that recognizes the added value of a comprehensive plan that evaluates the strategic roles of a variety of communication disciplines – for example, general advertising, direct response, sales promotion, and public relations – and combines these disciplines to provide clarity, consistency, and maximum communications impact.

Schultz further noted that the process of integrated marketing communications calls for the ‘big picture’ approach to planning marketing and promotion programmes and coordinating the various communication functions. It requires that firms develop a total marketing communications strategy that recognizes how all of a firm’s marketing activities, not just promotion, communicate with its customers. As a result, there are today few subjects of more concern to corporate survival than corporate sponsorship promotion; a Marketing, Public relations, Advertising strategy.
Today, corporate marketing objective has shifted emphasis from production and product to consumer satisfaction and societal welfare. A development that is responsible for the increasing focus of major industries on corporate sponsorship promotion as a veritable tool in the attainment of their corporate development and marketing objectives. According to Smith et al (2006:68)
Emphasis is now on the needs, wants and preference of consumers, which must determine product characteristics, pricing, distribution, advertising, promotion, selling as well as service. Society is now also concern about the protection of the physical environment, product safety and job creation. (Smith et al 2000)
The changing priority on corporate sponsorship promotion emanate from the new emphasis on relationship marketing. Today, most corporate marketers are seeking more than just a one-time exchange or transaction with the customers.
