THE POWERFUL REACH OF SPORTS MARKETING:
With the ever-changing world of technology, today's media environment is highly fragmented. Businesses are always looking for a different way to get their message out to people. That is where sports is so powerful. You can reach a captive audience in a creative and unique way in which they can create an emotional attachment to our franchise. There are several different ways you can market your business to our fan base, whether you are looking for branding or traffic driving ideas.
There are a few different options when it comes to signage, whether you are looking for a billboard-type branding element or a logo in the ice, providing impressions as the players skate up and down the ice. With the state-of-the-art technology that our arena provides, we can also create a program using our video board and LED Ribbon to grab our fan's attention.
If you are looking for a different avenue other than traditional signage, we have plenty of programs that can help drive trafifc to your locations. Whether its a coupon handed out when we win or a free item when the opposing team has a certain player sent to the penalty box, our staff will work with you to customize a promotion to fit your needs.
Research shows that fans will flock to the doors to recieve a premium giveaway, such as a bobblehead or a youth jersey. The item will feature your logo along with the Thunder logo. The options are endless!
