Marketing For The Olympics
Britain was very proud to start marketing for the Olympics back in 2012. Prime Minister David Cameron has said that the Olympics
cost the UK around £9 billion, however the income to the UK (from tourism, spending etc.) is expected to be around £13 billion.
What Can Businesses Do To Market Themselves?
UK businesses can capitalise on the Olympic games. Not just through modifying their branding
, but to really get involved with interacting with tourists or making special offers to tourists.
There are said to be over a million foreign tourists coming into the UK. If this was at another country, they would certainly capitalise on the marketing of the Olympics.
Were They A Good Idea In Recession?
Britain should be saving money where possible in order to reduce the national debt
, however opportunities for ‘investment’ are always a good idea. The London 2012 Olympics
are a great opportunity to ensure that other nations look at the UK and invest in the UK. So certainly, yes, they are a good idea during recession.
Sports And Marketing For The Olympics
The UK sports industry
is worth around £23 billon and this is growing. Marketing for sports companies
is a big area with leading brands such as Reebok
targeting marketing for gyms
. In one way, hosting the olympics was more about public relations
, never has a country declined to host the olympics. Despite the huge cost to the taxpayer, the long term benefits of hosting the London olympics was seen to be a good thing.
