Mobile Marketing and Sports A Match Made in Heaven

Mobile marketing in the sports industry is growing at an unprecedented rate – just a cursory glance on Google will tell you as much. But why has it proved so successful?

The answer’s simple – through an effective content marketing strategy, a sports team can interact and engage with fans on a personal level, both at the stadium and elsewhere, for the duration of the season.

It’s effectively a match made in heaven – sports fans are passionate about their club, constantly demanding thought-provoking, discussion-worthy content, while many are young and tech-savvy.

Recent findings from Motricity found that 79 per cent of sports fans have used their mobile to watch or follow sport during 2012, while a whopping 87 per cent have checked sports content during an ‘inappropriate’ moment – like during a date or at a meeting.

The challenge, then, is for clubs to capitalise on this insatiable demand by devising strategic mobile marketing strategies to boost engagement rates and ultimately, drive revenues. The smartphone has become the go to for news and opinions – sports brands need to harness this, without detracting from the mobile experience.

Personalisation is key – in football, for example, there is a multitude of demographics. Tapping into these successfully will drive conversations and engagement; something that’s difficult to get right, but promises great rewards.

Utilising the services of Snack Media, sports brands can demonstrate and share fans’ passions on both mobile and wider digital platforms. Our diverse sports portfolio means we understand the issues that get fans talking, and our experience with content marketing means we understand the intricacies and secrets of effective copywriting.

Away from the stadium, fans are an unstructured bunch. But an effective mobile marketing strategy can transform this scattered group into what’s effectively a single, centralised database. Through engaging, inspiring content, this can be activated to extend a brand’s reach and provide fans with added value.

With the Euros in full swing, the Olympics only around the corner and 2012-13’s Premier League fixtures due to be released on Monday (18th June), there hasn’t been a better time for a club or sports organisation to realise the potential of mobile marketing.

Snack Media is one of the UK’s leading providers of content marketing and article writing services.

Sports Games Online Horse Racing Games Online

John Madden Football is great, but some people prefer watching the more awesome athlete called the thoroughbred horse. What’s the latest in horse racing games online?

The first racetrack in America was constructed on Long Island in 1665. The American Stud Book was started in 1868, launching organized horse racing in the United States. By 1890, there were 314 tracks operating in the U.S. In 1894, the American Jockey Club was formed. In the early 20th century the sport was set back by anti-gambling sentiment that led almost all states to ban bookmaking. Parimutuel betting was introduced in 1908, reviving the industry, and it flourished until World War II, and then fell in popularity until horses began to win the Triple Crown (Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes).

Top U.S. racetracks include Saratoga (1863), Pimlico (1870), Churchill Downs (1875), Belmont Park (1905), Fairmont Park (1925), Hialeah Park (1925), Santa Anita Park (1934), Del Mar (1937), and Hollywood Park (1938). Belmont is the largest dirt thoroughbred race course in the world, and has the sport’s largest grandstand.

Even after the Space Age and the Personal Computer Age, the excitement and lure of horse racing is strong. With the growth of the new information economy, new recreation opportunities are being created, and horse racing games online are no exception. With the current crop of horse racing games online, players can be the jockey, better, and breeder too, managing the development of every aspect of the activity and interacting with a growing international community of horse racing lovers in virtually all countries.

What’s new? The use of 3-D virtual reality technology gives a powerful dimension that is the next best thing to being there – even better than being there in some ways. The brain is satisfied with the entire experience, while the pocket book need never be touched, nor gambling laws consulted, since real money is not used.

Where does one obtain horse racing games online? It’s easy. Just use Google and see what offerings come up. Many if not most are free to download and use. What matters is that you find one you like and use over and over to build your skill along with a social network with other players.

What are the possibilities? How about racetrack operators, breeding farms, and horse racing syndication groups? Let’s cut to the chase: jockeying. How would you like to take control of a thousand-pound thoroughbred and ride him or her to victory for real prizes? That’s right, real prizes. Depending on the vendor, prizes can be anything from an iPod to a meeting with a real jockey. My hips don’t lie, baby.

Just in case you think this is for babes in the woods, did you know that horse racing games online are so realistic that top jockeys and trainers play regularly?

So drop your boring activities and engage with horse racing games online. You’ll be really glad you downloaded one today.
