SPONSORSHIP AND PROMOTION
When it came to social media valuation, the Los Angeles Lakers’ jersey patch sponsor Wish was the most valuable during the 2018-19 NBA season. GumGum Sports, a division of GumGum that provides an AI-powered measurement platform enabling brands to assess value across linear, social and streaming vehicles, estimated that Wish earned nearly a $9.3 million value, up from $4.9 million the prior year. Benefiting from the presence of LeBron James, Wish displaced Goodyear, which held the top jersey patch the prior season for The King’s former team, the Cleveland Cavaliers. “Next to Nike’s apparel sponsorship, the jersey patch is the biggest sponsor location in arena on social media,” said GumGum Sports general manager Brian Kim. “It’s worth noting that due to the variety of factors we use to calculate value – clarity, prominence, visibility, size, placement, and share of voice – still images actually generated 86% of the overall social media compared to 14% for video.”
