How can you keep sponsors connected with fans when your season is postponed?
With little notice, sports were shut down across the globe due to COVID-19. Most teams had sponsors expecting to activate and engage at their stadiums to start the season
With the WNBA season postponed due to the pandemic, the Seattle Storm needed to find a way to keep their sponsors engaged and connected with fans. The most vital item was to ensure they met their sponsor's marketing needs while bringing value that is comparable to live games.
A suite of digital activations to connect fans and drive comprable value.
The Storm worked with SQWAD to create a suite of 5 activations, one for each major sponsor, to keep them connected and engaged with fans. The games were fit to the sponsor's needs and goals in order to bring comparable value.
Each of the games are posted on the team's app with support and marketing on their social media channels. The activations will run 15 weeks with new sponsor prizes and offers updated each week to keep them coming back & engaged.
