What to consider before you start creating content about sports events:

  • Chart the curse: the first step to develop fantastic content is to determine WHAT you want to achieve with it and HOW you plan to get there. Once you have this clear in your mind, it will be easier to set your budget and the KPI’s you need to track to achieve the goals you pursue.

One example would be:

To gain more leads (what) by offering them exclusive information about the World Cup matches every day through a widget in our website (how). We planned to spend €200 in 3 weeks for SEM, and at the end of the campaign, we’ll have increased our customer’s database by 10% (KPI).

  • Give yourself time to understand your audience deeply: for sports fans or hungry content searchers; you need to know what kind of content they like to consume the most (video, images, memes, infographics etc.) and where they want to find it (social media, search engines, mobile, etc.).

By giving yourself a time to get to know your audience before start posting, your probabilities to maximize the exposure of your content will increase, and therefore your brand awareness.

  • Careful! You are swimming with sharks here: remember that the audience you’ll be communicating is sports fans… not just regular consumers. So you have to deliver real valuable for them as you’ll be talking about a topic they are passionate about. You can’t fool passionate people now, can you? 🙂

If they don’t perceive a differentiated and real value in what you offer, they won’t check it.

  • Plan, test and evaluate: you can use this opportunity, not only to engage your audience and accomplish your marketing and sales goals, but you can also gain valuable first-party data from your audience if you give yourself the time to analyze the results.

After you’ve made some posts, check what type of content the market prefer to consume, at what times, when and where they do it, so you can improve further your future posts and marketing campaigns based on robust data and not mere assumptions.
