1. Introduction
1.1. Background
Nowdays, the rate of change that is happening within the scope of big
business is fast and significant because of the new competitors that make the
competition tighter, technological progress, and changes in the needs and
desires of consumers themselves. This causes many companies to inevitably set
up the right strategy to survive in this business change and of course the main
can win the competition that is in it. To survive and win this market, a company
needs marketing that is considered a cutting edge for an activity that can affect
Explained in Marketing Management 14th (Philip Kotler &Kevin Lane
Keller) the American Marketing Association (AMA) define Marketing is the
action, set of foundations, and process for making, approach, show and trading
offerings that have an incentive for costumers, customers, accomplices, society
on the loose.
And Kotler and Keller define the marketing is a societal activity by which
someone/ a group get what they desire and wish through making, offering, and
freely exchanging products and services of value with others.
From the two definitions above we can said marketing is delivering
product or service that got have value to a costumer, its satisfied the costumer,
and its going to develop the costumer loyalty. To reach their marketing goal,
many companies must get their own unique value that can help them to get a
competitive advantage than other in the market. One of the competitive
advantages that a company can plan is brand (Chailan, 2008). According to Aaker
(1991), brand is an identity for a product so the product is different with others.
Furthermore explained by Fisk (2007), brand not only an identity for a product,
but also a reputation and promise. It shows that a brand is an important thing for
a product and company who want to get a successful business. So brands have
their own competitions in business. And now days the brand competitions in
business continue to increase. This is due to the rapid business growth (Latham,
With this rapid growth business, the increasingly fierce competition encourages
companies to be more clever in their strategy. They are competing to win the
market by reaching all types of market segments, among other things by making
various product variants and improving their product with current situasion
development. However, the company also must create a brand equity so they got
a strong enough brand equity to their variant products. Brand equity is a set of
brand assets and other assets associated with a brand and can increase the value
of the product for the customer (Aaker, 1991). There are 5 category assets that
can help increase brand equity, which are brand awareness, brand association,
quality perception, brand loyalty, and brand asset. This 5 assets included in the
brand communcation process that is the strategy of delivering messages about
the benefits of products and services of a particular brand with the aim of
creating awareness and emotional experiene that brings to a particular brand
preference to the consumer.
Brand awareness affect perception and behavior, so brand awareness can be
regarded as key of brand asset or key opener to enter into other elements (Aaker
and McLoughlin, 2010). In other word as Simamora (2003) says, brand
awareness is an important component of brand equity. In addition, it can be said
that the formation of awareness is the first stage in communicating the brand of
a product. Along with that, Levidge and Steiner (1961) that consciousness is the
earliest stage in the ranking hierarchy of stimulus influence. So, it is reasonable
that consumers tend to buy brands they already know or familiar, because they
feel secure with something they already know.
According to Keller (2003) brand awareness relates to the strength of a brand
forming a knot and leaving the impression in the mind of a person who is then
reflected by his/her ability to identify the brand in various conditions.
Brand awareness needs to be formed and improve if a product wants its brand to
occupy the topmost position in the minds or minds of consumers for a particular
product category or often being called as top of mind brand (keller, 2003). But
increasing brand awareness is not easy. Aaker (1991) mentions that in achieving
awareness involves two tasks that is to get a brand name identity and connect
with the product category. The company has a variety of ways to shape and
improve brand awareness for its products, one of which is by running a
Promotion, in marketing is one component marketing mix which is a tool to
achieve marketing objectives. Jerome McCarthy, classifies these tools into a 4P
which are product, price, place, and promotion. To get the maximum 4P strategy
output needs to be supported by good communication between companies and
their customers, it is commonly called marketing communication which is a
flexible element in marketing. Basically one of the marketing tools that is a
means to conduct communication activities is promotion, as where disclosed
Fandi TJiptono (2002) that the essence of promotion is a form of marketing
communication. Meanwhile, marketing communication itself can be defined as
the company's efforts to inform, convince, and remind consumers directly or
indirectly about the brands they sell (keller 1998) As the development of
marketing, marketing communication classic has evolved into IMC, Ducan (2005)
defines IMC as a process for planning, executing, and monitoring the messages
that create relationships with consumers. Belch & belch (2007) mentions some
tools that can be an option in running IMC such as advertising, sales promotion,
direct marketing, publicity, word of mouth, event and sponsorship
However in this recent days, promotion faced a big problem as Handoko
Hendroyono told that consumers now day feel bored and annoyed about
advertising. This is due to costumers being fed too many advertisement in a day.
This result the advertisement being inefficient because not only they failed to
deliver their value to build up the awareness and could make a negative stigma
toward their products. Beacause of it, company choose to pick another alternatif
and it is through sponsorship. Sponsorship according to Speed and Thompson
(2000) is to provide financial or other equivalent assistance to an activity by two
commercial organizations for the purpose of achieving commercial objectives.
Sponsorship is a form of promotion, but unlike advertising in the medium and
messaging is not strictly controlled by sponsors. Sponsorship is usually not
handled through conventional media. Instead sponsorship may involve event
stage where advertising is unlikely to use the place. Activities that can be
sponsored include sports, art and social. Through this activity the company can
put its name in front of the public so it can cause consumer to aware about our
product or brand that can build up a brand awareness. Masterman (2007), cite
from Redmandarin (2004), expose a data which came from European Sponsors’
Survey about compaby objective to do a investment in sponsorship. And the
result show that around 69 percent company want to improve their brand
awareness from sponsorship. IEG and Statista
website(http://www.sponsorship.com/iegsr/2017/01/04/SponsorshipSpending-Forecast--Continued-Growth-Ar.aspx), that sponsorship continued to
growth around the world.

From the statistics above, the sponsorship in marketing continue to grow at
stable and steady pace than other merketing tools.

products and services directly.
Masterman (2007) also explains the notion of sponsorship as: "A mutually
benficial arrangement of the provision of resources of funds, goods, and services
by and individual or body (the sponsor) to an individual or body (right owner) in
a return for a set of objectives for the commercial gain . " From the above

2.2. Brand Awareness
Brand awareness affect perception and behavior, so brand awareness can be

heuristic for choosing (e.g.,”I’m gonna choose this brand because already familiar
with the brand”). According to Aaker (1991), brand awareness is the ability of
consumers to recognize or reckon that a brand is part of a particular product
According to Strategic Brand Management book 4th edition by Kevin Lane Keller.
Brand awareness consists of brand recognition and brand recall performance:
Brand recognition is consumers’ ability to confirm prior exposure to the brand
when given the brand as a cue. In other words, when they go to the store, will
they be able to recognize the brand as one to which they have already been
Brand recall is consumers’ ability to retrieve the brand from memory when given
the product category, the needs fulfilled by the category, or a purchase or usage

depend on their ability to retrieve the brand when they think of the cereal
category or of what they should eat for breakfast or snack, whether at the store
when making a purchase or at home when deciding what to eat.
