The NHL playoffs just started and with it comes a journey for both the players and fans to win the greatest trophy in all of professional sports, the Stanley Cup. Because of the cache of Lord Stanley, the NHL has successfully engaged fans with its #becauseitsthecup and #myplayoffsmoment hashtags, getting them to send in photos and videos of them sharing their experience. What can teams do to encourage fans to send in more videos?
On the other side of the pond, the NBA playoffs are set to start this weekend and they are in a different scenario than the NHL thanks to appealing to a larger, non-niche audience. It’s much easier for a casual fan to watch LeBron James or Steph Curry than it is Sidney Crosby or Patrick Kane. What can the NBA do to generate a similar level of fanaticism that the NHL has with #becauseitsthecup?
Lastly, what can workplaces do to jump on the bandwagon of both these playoffs and encourage participation for their employees?
