Make a marketing touchdown by launching an exciting football-themed advertising campaign. Here are 5 tips to help you leverage NFL’s popularity for your brand’s success.
Launch a selfie contest
You could launch a selfie contest by asking customers to don the gear of their favorite teams and send in their pictures. They could upload their selfies on your company’s social media pages or share them via email. Announce prizes well in advance to ensure more participation. If you are not keen on a selfie contest, you could opt for a Simple Trivia Contest. Personalize any of our exciting tees and distribute them as giveaways.

A prediction contest will keep your target audience on their toes and make your marketing campaign a lot more interesting. Encourage participants to predict eventual winners for the Super Bowl. This contest can build excitement towards your brand and help the customer associate your brand with the Super Bowl. Give out exciting prizes for winners.
Organize a community football festival
You could partner with other local businesses to organize a community football festival that brings together players from the junior league. The event could be held just in time for the Super Bowl, attracting fans and the public in hordes.
Leverage the power of direct mail
You could design a postcard with a message in the local football team’s color to add a new dimension to your branding efforts. Adding a discount code, brochure or a free gift will serve as the icing on the cake. Postcards 4 x 6 is an example of a custom printed post card in our inventory.
