Sports Schedule Magnets

As mentioned in our previous post, college football season is right around the corner with college basketball season trailing not too far behind.  One of the most effective tools we have seen for promoting your business along side your favorite sports teams are fully customizable sports schedule magnets.  You can include your company’s logo as well as the season schedule for your favorite team or teams.  If you live in the south you might want to include entire SEC football schedule or the ACC basketball schedule along with your company logo.

If you prefer pro sports to college sports that works as well.  Just request that they are customized with your favorite NFL team or teams.  If you live in the Pacific Northwest you could consider printing the schedule for the reigning Super Bowl Champs – Seattle Seahawks.

The real benefit is sports schedule magnets have a higher perceived value.  While someone may keep a magnet with your company’s information they are much more likely to keep that exact same magnet if it includes their favorite sports team schedule.

Six Weeks From Today!!!

College Football is Back (almost)

It is hard to believe that college football season is a mere six weeks away. Kicking off in Atlanta Thursday, August 28th with a match-up between Ole Miss and Boise St. Or…. if you are so inclined, you can catch the real Thursday night showdown between Wake Forest and Louisiana-Monroe; hopefully the sarcasm is evident.  For some hopefuls, that means a quest for the national championship begins and for others it’s simply a time to tailgate with 60,000+ of your closest friends.  Regardless of which camp you fall into, the college football season is filled with  excitement, heartache, what if’s, office trash talk, and BBQ.  Besides our love for football, what does this post have to do with promotional items you may ask?!

Leveraging Corporate Sponsorships

We all know that corporate sponsorships play a significant role in major college sports.  And no where is that more apparent than college football stadiums on beautiful Saturday afternoons in the Fall.  There are corporate sponsors for everything from the scoreboard, the stadium cups, the lemonade stand, gifts at the ticket gate and, if allowed, urinal sponsors.  Leveraging these opportunities effectively is paramount to getting the proper return for your marketing dollars.  And what better way to do so than putting custom branded promotional items in the hands of fans?  Below are just a few fan favorites (pun intended):

Custom Branded Poncho’s

Torrential downpours are inevitable at some point during the season.  While downpours will deter some, it will fuel the excitement for others.  Either way, a custom branded poncho is a great alternative to sitting at home on the couch or sitting in the stands soaked.  This poncho is lightweight, reusable and includes a hood.  It comes in a variety of colors including clear, white, yellow, blue, red, and light green.

Customized Folding Chairs

A great item for tailgaters.  Whether you are relaxing while you wait for the pig to come off the cooker or watching the kids emulate their favorite player in the parking lot, custom branded folding chairs are a great choice.  These chairs allow for 3 different imprint locations and include a carrying bag for easy mobility.  They also include two cup holders for your stadium cups. However; go easy on the pig as they do have a weight limit…..

Hopefully these items will get your wheels turning as you consider how to effectively leverage your sponsorship dollars.  There are many parallels between a successful football season and a successful marketing campaign.  The legendary Paul “Bear” Bryant captured that beautifully by stating “Its not the will to win that matters…everyone has that. It’s the will to prepare that matters.”
