5 Draft Season Campaign Ideas

  1. Do an Instagram Live with the athlete and a lucky customer on Draft Day
  2. Sponsor athletes through your products or services to help prospects move into their new cities to generate buzz and PR
  3. Have the athlete do a TikTok video on how your product is part of their Draft Day routine, e.g. showing them wearing, eating, cooking with, drinking, training, grooming with your brand
  4. Get in front of die hard fan-bases, who will follow the newest player on their team through more targeted Regional Marketing campaigns.
