Our June All-Star is King Henry from the Brooklyn Cyclones! Our All-Stars are industry innovators and top performers working smarter to increase the overall success of their outings.
Public School Fundraiser
The Brooklyn Cyclones have worked with New York City public schools on a fundraiser program since 2011 that helps the schools purchase items such as books, sporting equipment, and musical instruments. The program has grown over300% the past 4 seasons with 2019 offers selling 3,900 ticket for almost $65k in revenue and over $17,500 in funds raised. The offer includes a Cyclones cap, wristband, and a pregame parade.
Activate the Groupmatics Widget!
Hopefully you’ve heard by now that you can make your online buying experience even easier by putting our Get Tickets button for any offer right on your own site! This will keep buyers on your site versus redirecting them to a different site, such as groupmatics.events/offername. Check out these live widget offers-
1. Boston Red Sox: Stranger Things Night at Fenway
2. Washington Nationals: Apollo at the Park
3. Hartford Athletic: Youth Soccer Programs
4. Philadelphia Union- U-Ride Program
Process Overview: we’ll pass along a script that needs to be embedded on whichever site you want your Get Tickets buttons to appear.
Non-BAM/MLB teams: someone there internally will need to have access to/be familiar with modifying the site’s HTML. This tends to be someone on the web, IT or dev team.
BAM/MLB teams: simply reach out to your BAM rep with the GM offer code and the site URL that you want them to activate the GM widget on. They already have the technical info and scripts needed to activate so it should be pretty turnkey.
