Sports Club Marketing

How to grow your sports club using an strategic digital marketing and communications.

Sports Clubs of all types are challenged to retain members, create a quality culture, and develop a sustainable revenue model.

With time and budgetary constraints a significant hurdle, you and your fellow club volunteers have got to be smart about how to attract and retain members (the only way for your club to survive – growth).

Social Media & Digital Marketing now provides sports clubs and associations a VERY powerful and low-cost way to engage with their players, supporters, and sponsors.

When implemented correctly, sports club marketing across digital platforms can be an effective mechanism to boost membership, fundraising, and sponsorship activities.

It helps you to achieve the following:
(1) Grow your ‘paid’ membership subscriptions
(2) Sell more merchandise
(3) Host ‘well-attended’ events
(4) Attract sponsors and investment opportunities.

For Brand Sponsors, when clubs have an active membership database on social media, it creates fast and easy access to players and supports in order to promote their products and services. Social Media provides a VERY powerful brand marketing opportunity that can scale easily and at a very low cost.

“Sports fans that see a brand message or endorsement on social media platforms are 78% more likely to hold a positive perception.”

For the last 5 years, our CEO Robert Durrant has been personally involved in helping sports clubs, players, fitness groups, and sports associations to improve the way they market and communicate with their membership database.
