Hopefully they forwarded on to their basketball coaches, players, parents, fans. Tournament Managers 8 sites hosted approximately 10 games each over 3 days. The flyers were at the entrance gate at each site. That is a lot of fans who could have possibly received our flyer about the NCAA games.

  • 9. Advice for Future Draw Meeting
    • Ask to address the whole assembly or have speaker explain what was being passed out at the doors
    • Visit www.swdab.org for information about meeting date and time (usually held at Princeton High School)
    • On handouts have links to Social Media sites, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
  • 10. Conclusion
    • The event is tough to determine direct impact due to the complexities of tracking
    • Reached a number of coaches and they were very receptive to the promotion
    • Widening the footprint of the promotion
    • Vertical expansion with youth basketball
    • Earlier activation, conference meetings?
  • 11. Traditional Media Fountain Square Event
  • 12. Execution
    • Fountain Square
      • Great Location, Potentially a Lot of Exposure, Last day of Ice Rink
    • Weather is a Factor
      • This Year Rainy, Cold
    • Piggybacking off Athletic Department
      • This provided less work for us, but possibly less return as well
  • 13. Conclusion
    • More promotions including emails, flyers, posters, social media (create group, blog, fan page)
    • Could have more “hands on” games
    • Promoted the players presence at the event more
    • The athletic department could make this a once a year event with the men’s and women’s team
      • Promote this year round
      • Send out promotions to season ticket holders
      • Announce it at all the men’s and women’s games
      • Get a local restaurant to sponsor food
  • 14. Traditional Media
    • Passing Out Flyers at the Women’s Basketball Game
      • Attend the Women’s Basketball game on 2/20/10 between Xavier and Massachusetts.
      • Game is likely to be highly attended due to Breast Cancer Awareness promotion.
      • Pass out flyers to fans as they enter the Cintas Center informing them of the tournament games.
      • Women’s basketball fans are likely to want to see Xavier compete in the NCAA Tournament.
  • 15. Execution
    • Several volunteers from the group handed out Ticket Order Forms and “Save The Date” postcards to fans as they entered the Cintas Center at all entrances.
    • Pros
    • Entrances are located next to Ticket Office so interested fans could purchase tickets easily.
    • Information on handouts was straightforward.
    • Cons
    • Quick pitch can sometimes be easily forgotten or ignored.
    • No place for people to ask follow-up questions after game had started.
  • 16. Conclusion
    • The event could be deemed both a success and failure.
    • A good number of people who weren’t previously aware were reached with good information, but obviously more and more diverse people can always be reached with more manpower.
  • 17. Future Ideas
    • Spend some time working out a quick, efficient pitch for the group so that interest can be piqued in the short time we have their attention.
    • A focus on women’s basketball games may not be most effective outlet since women’s basketball fans are more likely to be aware of the NCAA Tournament at the Cintas Center.
    • Instead, targeting men’s basketball fans may reach a new audience who do not normally attend women’s games. The last men’s home game of the regular season should also be included.
    • People who were missed on the way in may not be targeted at all. Having 2 people stationed at a booth during the game, perhaps near the concession stands.
    • If it could be arranged, even having the chance to make an announcement at halftime could make a significant impact.
  • 18. New ideas
    • New publics:
      • Young professionals
      • Parents with school-aged children
      • Local community members
  • 19. New Ideas
    • Promotion:
      • Posters and promotion in local bars, restaurants, coffee shops
      • Utilize local community papers, blogs, websites
      • Send information to local schools—beyond basketball teams. If there are pregame games/events, promote in communication.
      • Host an event for young professionals (at Ryan’s?) and team up with social media to promote event
