Public relations at our club


Recommended Posts

Dont wanna be overly negative, as we've obviously had/got larger problems, but let's be honest, PR's gone off the cliff a bit at our club hasn't it? We've made two or 3 three signings already, and they've not exactly been shown off yet have they?

 

Remember two seasons ago when we signed a player we did the 'level up promo videos, which were Class, as linked to our pixel kit design......so, uh, guess we still don't have a kit, so they can't do anything similar, but at least a welcome video on social media platforms would be cool. We haven't even had the obligatory player sat in the stands poc with a scarf!

 

Although, some of the pics were pretty bad last season anyway, especially the Callum Paterson pics. Just seen some PR pics of Bradfords new kit launch on Instagram, and they're brilliant! Shame we can't get someone to promote us properly, as its quite a basic thing to get right.

The level up videos were done by someone at elev-8 weren’t they? 
 

But I agree.

 

Even years ago we did the old ‘ssshhhhhhh  t’ to announce a signing. Causes a buzz. And this buzz leads to a buzz about the season which ultimately helps sell tickets.

 

People are gonna reply to this and say ‘does it really matter’. If it didn’t matter then other clubs wouldn’t invest in it at all.

Have to say when I saw the Patterson pics, my first thought was he’s just not the same without spit the dog.

I appreciate what you are saying, but the team has been away doing pre-season and with current COVID regulations maybe it has been more difficult to do the usual interviews and video's etc.  

Yeah I bet it’s been right tricky! Hahahahaha!

Probably realise frees and loans whilst under a suspended points deduction and wage restrictions aren’t going to have the same social media impact 😂

Ya say that, but that would mean the vast majority of League 1 and 2 clubs not bothering with a social media presence, if we're talking about free signings.

 

Bristol Rovers have done some great work over pre-season, giving 5 minute count downs for new signings, and showing a teaser, and they've signed 5 or 6 new players.....we just haven't bothered yet! It's a bit tinpot.

Are people not allowed to drive to Wales with a laptop and phone? What COVID rule would stop a person with the marketing / promotion / social media skills travelling to work with the team?

Was more meaning having gone from the Forestieris Hoopers of this world 5 years ago to relegation and then frees, it’s the transition which means our fanbase won’t see it quite how it would had we been at this level a while
