Hookit Boosts Tough Mudder In Enlisting New Partners

June 7, 2019

Tough Mudder’s sales team leveraged Hookit data as a tool in the partnership sales process as a way to provide insightful analytics of predicted sponsorship ROI to its potential brand partners.

Data from sports sponsorship analytics and evaluation platform Hookit helped Tough Mudder secure deals with more than a half-dozen new commercial partners.

By tailoring the pitch to what each brand was already talking about, Tough Mudder could demonstrate that it would be a world-class partner for the sponsor, helping that organization achieve their sponsorship objectives.

Tough Mudder was able to convert the data into new deals with brands such as Chipotle, Nexcare, ACE, Every Man Jack, Navy Federal Credit Union and others.

Tough Mudder is uniquely positioned as both a brand sponsoring athletes and influencers as well as an event property bringing on other brands as sponsors.

In order to stay as the best-in-class partner, Tough Mudder sought to identify ways to drive more value for current and prospective sponsors.

Using the Research tool within the Hookit platform, Tough Mudder was able to identify potential sponsors and show how their organization could:

  • Optimize campaigns aligned with that brand’s messaging
  • Target the desired audience of that brand
  • Pair influencers and brands to drive maximum ROI on sponsored content

“Hookit is a key tool in the sponsorship sales process, allowing us to bring on new sponsors and increasing our sponsorship revenue,” said Tony Kim, Business Development@Tough Mudder.
