Imagine the possibilities. Your fans want digital interaction. Facebook and Twitter, while excellent ways to promote your business, don’t connect fans inside your speedway to share the experience together and receive real-time, exclusive content. We’re changing that. BuzzMob exists to give your fans the best live experience possible. To engage them with each other and with you. Imagine… 140,000 die-hard NASCAR fans, all connected within the speedway on their smartphones; NASCAR drivers and crew connecting with their fans live at the speedway during events; And most importantly, Charlotte Motor Speedway…finally connected to all the fans and attendees as they are sitting in their seats.
A snapshot of BuzzMob. BuzzMob is a mobile social platform that brings digital communication to real-world places and events, allowing people within the same location to interact within a private digital network. How can this be used by Charlotte Motor Speedway? You can connect your 140,000+ fans together while they’re experiencing a race at your speedway. They can talk, share tips, photos, videos, and receive exclusive content. And why not include the drivers and their crews as well? They can use BuzzMob to communicate with fans, giving them an inside look into what’s happening in the pits. You can bring in your major race sponsors like Sprint, Coca-Cola, and Bank of America and allow them to participate in the onsite interaction as well, giving them direct access to all the fans at the speedway. You can administer the ring and control the content. Your fans will be on BuzzMob at your live events, and you can push information to them while they’re in their seats. Encourage fans to visit the gift shop, half price hot dogs, contests – you name it, we can do it for you. You will enhance the event experience for your fans by allowing them to interact with each other onsite, connect with their favorite drivers in real-time, and allow you to interactively engage with them.
An idea is born. Jeff Jackel was sitting in the bleachers at a Los Angeles Angels game when he stopped watching the game and started looking at everyone playing on their smartphones. 40,000 people sharing the baseball experience, but not sharing it together. They were not engaged in what was happening HERE, because no one HERE was engaging with them. How could he connect them all to each other and, just as important, how could he connect them with the Los Angeles Angels? With those thoughts, BuzzMob was born.
What exactly is BuzzMob? [embedded video – view in presentation mode]
How it works. Using a smartphone’s GPS, BuzzMob lets users join “Rings,” real-time, live communities built of people who are at the same event or location. Once inside the “Ring,” users can chat, share tips, photos, videos, and receive exclusive content within a private network. Where existing social media focuses on documenting experiences to your friends and followers, BuzzMob is about enhancing those experiences by connecting you with your location and the people around you.
