Video - Participation Marketing, Social Media and Teams

What's up everyone? Yesterday I stumbled upon an article about participation marketing by Alan Rosenpan. As you know, I'm big on social media and how brands can utilize it to connect with their customers and fans. Social media was built for participation. Brands and individuals have to actively participate in order to successfully engage people on whatever communities/websites they've determined are valuable.

Check out the video below for some of my thoughts about participation marketing-what it is, why it matters and how teams can utilize social media to follow some of these principles. Some of these ideas are things that a lot pro teams are already doing, though I think there are some ways they can improve things.

Thanks for watching. I'd love to hear what your thoughts are for ways teams can get to know fans better, involve them in creating ticket packages/promotions  and make them feel like they have a stake in their success.
