Use these 7 pro plays to score even more fans using the Buzztime Sports $100-a-Day Sweepstakes:

1) Recruit Players Now

With a daily chance to win $100, the Buzztime Sports sweepstakes is the ideal time to grow your player base. Current, registered Buzztime players are all set. But new players must register first so their Buzztime Sports gameplay can count as a sweepstakes entry.

  • Make it a game! Train your team to help guests register. Reward the employees who sign up the most new players. Also, be sure to set out fully charged Buzztime tablets at the bar and offer one to every guest. Mention the sweepstakes, of course.
  • Pro tip! If a player doesn’t win, always remind them to come back tomorrow for another shot at the daily $100 giveaway.
  • Want even more players? Check out the Sports Bar Marketing Playbook, loaded with 15 creative ideas to attract fans.

  • “Tag” Buzztime on social media, too! It’s a way to align your business with a buzzworthy national sweepstakes.

3) Preschedule Social Posts

Use a scheduling tool like HootSuite to set up posts on social media in advance. Or, you can go directly into Facebook and preschedule posts. Use our graphics and these next tips to increase engagement with your social media posts about the Buzztime Sports sweepstakes.

4) Pitch a Question

Questions posed on social media are a great way to engage your fanbase. Post a sweepstakes graphic and message like this:
What would you do with an extra $100 if you’re today’s @Buzztime Sports Sweepstakes winner?

What’s your all time favorite baseball play? Who knows, it could show up in tonight’s round of @Buzztime Sports Trivia. Come play for YOUR chance to win $100.

5) Make Every Player Feel Like a VIP

Use the sweepstakes to celebrate your players – even if they’re not $100 winners. Take photos or videos of players tackling questions in Buzztime Sports, and share it on social media. (Always ask for their permission first.) Better yet, use your Buzztime digital signage to put their name in lights on your TVs and tablets.

6) Liven Things Up: Go Live! on Facebook

Use Facebook Live to record your players enjoying a round of Buzztime Sports…in real time! For free, Facebook will alert your followers that you’re live.
Before recording, just ask players if they’re ok with live video. It’s a great way to show off the friendly competition, camaraderie, and fun atmosphere at your venue.

7) Buzzer Beater

Keep the momentum going strong throughout October, including the last few days. Remind players they have just days left for a chance to win $100.
Now, take the field and start promoting the Buzztime Sports Sweepstakes to grow your fanbase. We’ll be cheering you on from the sidelines!
