The Sportsvite team huddled up recently and came up with a game plan. First, we overhauled our Bulletin Boards (read about it here) to make it easier for members of the community to find activity partners, to add free agents to fill out their team roster and to join leagues. Then, we rebuilt sportsvite.com (read about it here) to improve the overall user experience. Now, we’ve enhanced our league promotion tools to provide leagues with a marketing channel to compliment their existing online presence.
There are a number of ways to promote your league and, subsequently, grow your league. We put together a quick guide to get you started…
Creating a league profile is the first step in promoting your league to Sportsvite members. Your league profile will be your, pardon the pun, home base within the community. It can be treated as your league’s official website or as a complimentary promotional channel to your existing league website. Sportsvite members can view information about your league including: league overview, contact information, gender, active seasons, competition levels, sports offered, photos, videos and more.
The ball’s in your court when it comes to improving your league status within the community. Your league earns activity credits every time you post or respond to a bulletin, upload a photo or video, recruit a player to sign up for Sportsvite to join your league, etc. You also earn activity credits by simply joining the Recreational Sports Network. These activity credits add up and are reflected in your league rank, which ultimately improves your listing in the league directory and makes you eligible for inclusion in the Sportsvite Weekly or on the wRECk Sports blog.
We’ve enhanced the league directory listing as well to make it more efficient for members of the community to find your league. You can differentiate your league by simply joining the RSN to earn Official League Partner status on the directory. So, get active on the site to increase your League Rank and elevate your listing.
Promoting your league on the Sportsvite Bulletin Boards is a simple way to fish where the fish are. The Bulletin Boards are the #1 destination for members looking to get active in sports and to join leagues. So, we encourage you to post a bulletin or browse the boards to respond to those looking to join a league in your area. Interested in having new bulletins delivered to your in-box daily? Simply visit the Bulletin Boards and click on the white “Get Daily Email Alerts!” button.
Follow these step-by-step directions to post a bulletin on the Sportsvite Bulletin Boards:
Interested in showcasing your league play, members and venues online? Look no further. Adding photos and videos to your league profile is a simple process and, as always, FREE! We encourage you to upload photos and videos to add value to your profile, improve your league rank and showcase your league.
The Sportsvite RSN consists of hundreds of league partners that work with Sportsvite to attract national advertising and sponsorships. Sportsvite offers advertisers a national footprint of hundreds of thousands of recreational athletes through its league partners that they can reach through a single, cost-effective media campaign.
Promoting your league to our members benefits everyone. Since it is a mutually beneficial exercise, we are willing to go above and beyond for some league partners by featuring them on our wRECk Sports blog and including them in the Sportsvite Weekly. But, we do ask you to return the love by adding our widget to your league website, by joining the RSN and by posting photos and videos on your Sportsvite League Profile. If you’re interested in the increased exposure for your league and willing to exchange promotion, please contact Nick B. for more details.
We’re very interested in learning more about your league to see how we can best guide you on how to properly leverage the Sportsvite community to grow your league. Please don’t hesitate to contact Nick Begley [email@example.com] to pick his brain about league promotion or to ask him any questions that come to mind.
