Using Sports-Related Marketing to Your Advantage

Make Your Restaurant the Place for Fans to Gather

 

Welcome to the start of football season! Now is the time to attract customers to your restaurant with these great sports-related marketing suggestions featured in the BuzztimeBusiness.com article, Why Sports-Related Marketing is a Must for Your Bar or Restaurant.

1. It’s year-roundRegardless of what time of year it is, there’s almost always a sporting event of some type on television. If you go the extra step and choose to show a pay-per-view event, you will attract even more customers that may not want to purchase the event in their own homes.

2. It makes you part of the community If you promote your restaurant as a supportive place for fans to gather after a local high school game, you will gain lots of loyal customers. Or, take it one step further and sponsor a local team!

3. You can attract college fansCollege fans are among some of the most devoted. Entice these loyal fans to watch the game at your restaurant and you can almost guarantee their repeat business week after week. For an added bonus, consider partnering with a local university which will establish your bar or restaurant as the official place to watch the big game.

4. Fans can engage with each otherMake the sports watching experience for your customers interactive by offering sports-themed trivia games during half time.

 

5. There are endless promotion ideasGet creative and think of all the different ways to tie your promotions into the games. Why not offer a discount for every fan that shows up in a jersey? Or, if the local team scores a certain number of points, free appetizers for everyone!
