March Madness Promotional Ideas – Mini Basketballs

Mini BasketballsAs the college basketball season approaches its last month of play during March Madness, businesses also look for ways to end the first quarter of 2013 with big sales. March Madness is the most exciting time of year for college basketball. This time provides excellent opportunities to promote your business and increase your sales. Here are a few ideas of how to use March Madness as a way to promote your business.

Syracuse Still Number 1 in College Basketball

 
Thundersticks

Thundersticks

Syracuse is holding their #1 spot for the 5th week in a row with Kentucky right on their heels. But the question is, “Can they hold on to the top spot?” Well, according to their schedule they should easily be able to win their games over the next few weeks since their schedule is so weak. Kentucky, on the other hand, has a bit tougher schedule coming up, so if Kentucky wins their next few games too, will it be enough merit topping Syracuse in the polls? We shall see soon.

I’ve seen plenty of fans from the games on television banging thundersticks and waving pom poms. It reminds me of my college days when I use to attend all of the home basketball games at Mississippi State University. Fun times. There were spirit items galore, mostly being sold as fundraisers for the team.

So, if you get to attend college basketball games, count your blessing and enjoy the games. And be sure to proudly wave your spirit items and promote your favorite team. College basketball season goes by quickly.

Promote Your Business With Mini Basketballs

 

With the start of college basketball upon us, there are many questions in the air. Who are the best teams? What players will boast the best stats? Who will win what rivalries? Who will make the NCAA Tournament? Who will win the National Championship? Many of these are questions have dynamic answers which continually change throughout the season. College and high school basketball alike provide a lot of excitement; therefore, businesses should be quick to take advantage of this excitement. One way is to agree to sponsor your local high school teams, booster clubs, or cheerleading squad. Your sponsorship not only is a write for tax purposes for your business, but it tremendously helps your local community and shows that your business cares for your community. This provides immeasurable appeal to your clients and potential clients. A common form of sponsorship is to have mini basketballs printed with not only your business logo, but also with your local team mascot and team name. A great way to make your business imprint stand out is to include a coupon code on the imprint copy. This is a great call to action and it also allows you to track the results of your marketing dollars. There are many other basketball spirit items that businesses can help purchase with sponsorship other than mini basketballs. Some include foam fingers, thundersticks, and basketball schedule magnets. Whatever spirit items that your sponsorship money goes toward, you are helping your community and promoting your business at the same time. It benefits both parties.

College Basketball Preseason

 

Well, it’s November already and it’s time for the start of College Basketball.  Not only does College basketball begin, but also High School basketball starts.  Mini Basketballs are excellent and fun basketball spirit items to throw out to the fans.  These custom basketballs can be printed with your team mascot or a sponsoring business name.  These are great ways to get seen by a lot of people and also show your support for your favorite high school or college basketball team.  Besides mini basketballs, there are a lot of other basketball spirit items that can be used to help raise money for athletic and booster clubs.  Basketball schedule magnets are always a great item to give away to season ticket holders to ensure they will always know the date and time of each game.  These same items can also be sold at the games to the non-season ticket holders.  I’m sure this year, like most other years, will prove to be an exciting and fun season with many upsets and comebacks.  March Madness will be here before we know it, so let the games begin and make sure and have your spirit items ready to root on your team!

Basketball Season is Here

 

Well, it’s that time of year, not Winter, but Basketball Season.  This exciting time of year for high school and college sports starts this month for many schools.  Be sure and get your basketballs spirit items early to beat the rush as your favorite college team works toward a bid to the final four..  Custom mini basketballs are great promotional giveaways at basketball games.  These are great for the cheerleaders to throw to the crowd after a big score or a slam dunk.  You can get local businesses to be a sponsor and pay for these basketballs.  This is a good for the sponsors because their logo can be printed on the mini basketball giving them advertising exposure to potentially thousands of fanatical basketball fans.

Maybe you want to jazz up the sales in the booster club store.  If so, be sure to get a variety of spirit items such as stadium cushions, thundersticks, sports horns, and your choice of many other school spirit items.
