Lots of brands I follow and interact with are using Social Media to engage and build relationships with customers. The fan base of a sports team might be one example of how social media could benefit as a department within an organization. Who would you tweet if there was a problem with ticketing or a defective product purchased from the stadium’s pro shop?
Glancing at the Steelers and Packers social media channels, both are keeping fans tuned in with the journey to the Superbowl. Each timeline is an ongoing pep rally for fans to watch and cheer for. The picture of Hines Ward above shows that airport security applies to Superbowl players on and off the field. I think this a great example of transparency.
This victory is more prestigious to Green Bay. Packers fans have been passionate for this moment a lot longer. Between the Steelers and the Packers, I think the Green and Gold would bring down Twitter.
Now, the most prominent Superbowl team using Social Media? My vote goes to the Steelers. They do a great job of illustrating their road to the Superbowl. Not just with pictures and videos, but I notice engagement with fans on Twitter that I don’t see on the Packers timeline.
Who do you think has or will have the most Social Media presence by Sunday?
I’m blog post-less today, but I respect the hell out of this picture.
For those that know me, I’m a multi-team fan. Football started having a distant family member play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. Always kept me excited, and never discouraged from a loss.
The Seattle Mariners pulled me into baseball. Ken Griffey Jr. was the ultimate human being for a long time. Finally making it to Safeco Field after many years of waiting, I couldn’t help but notice the roar coming from Qwest Field. I get curious about what brings fans on the edge of their seats. The Emerald City became the first package containing all my interests for a little while.
Favre got picked up by the New York Jets. I was more curious than ever how that acquisition would affect the team and fans. Never heard much about the Jets except through @garyvee. After watching a few games, I realized it wasn’t Favre keeping me glued in. There’s lots of good things happening here. Rex Ryan is my favorite coach. Knowing there are solid guys like Cromartie and Revis tying the knots with defense. Holmes, Keller, and Edwards for big yards. The Jets might be an unreliable team to the media and some football fans, but I’m a firm believer in growth. People are pinning that growth to Mark Sanchez. I’m even guilty of saying “I could sell my Sanchez jersey right now”, but I’m a believer.
