TeamLinkt protects Local Sports Stores & Team Dealers from Amazon

Sports Team Management Apps are an essential tool for player and parent.  These apps enable teams to share schedules, automate reminders, set player availability, streamline communications… and really focus on the game.  Engagement in these apps are higher than many social media platforms – and targeted access and exposure to players and parents via these apps means big dollars.

TeamSnap, one of the recognized Sport Team Management Apps in North America – used by baseball, hockey, soccer and many other sports – has now leveraged their connection to millions of players and parents to drive equipment and apparel sales away from local retailers.

TeamSnap has partnered with Amazon and from their app’s dashboard, and within the TeamSnap ‘Emails’ to players and parents, TeamSnap is aggressively promoting local shoppers to “SKIP THE TRIP TO THE STORE AND GEAR UP VIA AMAZON”.  For Local Stores and Team Dealers, this is yet another channel that’s pushing players and parents to Amazon.

 

At TeamLinkt, we recognize that it’s critical for Local Sporting Good Stores and Team Dealers to own this channel – and without it, companies like TeamSnap and Amazon will continue to chip away at these local relationships and equipment & apparel revenue streams.

Through our TeamLinkt Community Partner Program, Stores and Team Dealers license and provide a competing Team Management App (with many added features that teams love!) to teams in their community.  You sponsor the app for teams helping them save money on technology, build goodwill … and best of all, you’ll own this new marketing channel – exclusive advertising & a direct link to your store!

Partners – Automate Social Posts to Grow More Teams!

Recent studies show that 69% of adults use social media and that number is growing every day.  Most consumers begin formulating their purchasing decisions through their social media networks.  They ask their “friends” for recommendations and research businesses there, looking for ratings & reviews, interactions with customers and more, before making many of their purchasing decisions these days.  Therefore, your business must have a strong presence on the major social media networks that your customers and potential customers are using.

The struggle many businesses face when trying to implement a social media strategy is a lack of time and resources.  In the day to day running of the business, most owners or managers don’t have time available to update their social accounts as often as they would like.  Often, they do not have staff with time available to do so either.  If they do have staff with time available, they do not fell comfortable having staff as the “voice” of the store and do not have time to train them on how they would like their social accounts managed.

As a Community Partner with TeamLinkt, we help you with your social media presence and content creation through weekly automated social media posts.  Every week, we produce content that touches on benefits of the TeamLinkt sports management app and include eye-catching visuals, which increase engagement and boosts team creations.  The automated social posts drive further downloads of the app and in turn get your store in front of more potential customers.  Connect Social Posts Now
