Part 3 of 4 video interviews with SF Giants – Social Media Director – Bryan Srabian
Ok….so we’ve discussed how social media can help sports teams engage with their fans.
But, is it possible (or appropriate) to look at social media as a way to increase revenues?
Social media sponsorship and monetization are hot topics and one of the major opportunities and challenges for all sports teams looking for ways to add value to new and existing corporate sponsorships.
