Special Events Draw Attention

Be it a bobblehead or senior night. Those contests draw extra attention because of their once-in-a-lifetime nature. However, without the correct promotional push before the event, you will be missing out on potential fan attendance because they lack knowledge of the game. So let’s get you a plan and make sure it’s well-executed, so you’re playing in front of a packed house!

Branding is Key

Outside of the large brands, many sports teams’ visibility is limited to a regional basis and sometimes, even in that region the brand image is not a household name. Developing a dedicated following is hard, especially when consistency is not present. One way to help with this problem is the creation or revision of a branding guide. This guide can make life easier for everyone as it gives you a definitive vision instead of leaving it up to an individual’s interpretation. 

However, it does not stop there as generating consistent content ideas can create a buzz that fans look forward to and have them talking about what to expect in the next installment while consuming your other content during the creation breaks to fill the time.

This consistent buzz may lead to other brands wanting to work with you because of the potential mutual benefits a partnership can provide. But the right collaboration is vital as authenticity is a driver in the sports industry as fans are loyal to the cause and do not enjoy imposters.
