During the Covid-19 crisis, a lot of sports teams and organisations face great challenges at the moment.

Therefore we at Content Stadium, started to think of a way how we could support our customers in these difficult times. We came with the idea of launching a free ‘Throwback Template’ into the account of all our customers. This template would allow them to keep on engaging with their fanbase even during these times of non-live coverage.

A month and a half later we can be proud of the initiative. First of all the credits go out to our clients for being very creative with the template using it in multiple and very creative ways. From our side we’re very happy that The reactions from the teams and federations were extremely positive, the amount of visuals created with the template were overwhelming and 65% of the clients have already used the template. We are very satisfied that we could help our customers by offering them a way to keep on engaging with their clients.

In the next part we’ll have a look at some ways the template was used. As you can see were the templates used to cover different topics. This is a combination between the multifunctionality of our template and the creativity of our customers.

Topics:

Opinion

A lot of customers used our Corona Throwback template to interact with their fans by asking their opinion by means of a question. You can find some examples in the clip down below.

Quiz

Another way to stay in touch with the fanbase was by converting our template into a quiz question. The fans could give an answer in the comments or by commenting a certain emoji. This can be combines with visibility for sponsors for example by a giveaway, sponsored post, etc. We give some examples down below.
