    All Sports Radio Sponsorship for 06-07 year

    Would you as a poster be interested in BB&B being an ALL SPORTS SPONSOR for the radio broadcasts of TECH athletics for the 2006-2007 sports year?

    This would basically give us ad time on all radio sports braodcasts 2 to 3 times EACH game for all sports - Football, Basketball, Techster Basketball and Baseball -

    An all-sports sponsorship by all radio sponsors will probably be the only way to have WAC road baseball coverage guaranteed. Apparently unlike this upcoming season.

    Re: All Sports Radio Sponsorship for 06-07 year

    I think that the most important thing that this board can do is raise awareness of its existence first and foremost. Putting the ads will definately help.

    I remember how long I cared about Tech athletics before I found this board a year ago; I just sort of "in the dark" about it even existing. I really feel that there is right now a pretty small percentage of people who have some interest in Tech athletics that even really know this place exists.

    With the limited amount of information coming out of the University, and not really any other avenues to get information, I can see this board becoming a very (even more) powerful voice.

    Another avenue would be to take up ad space in newspapers. For example, put an ad for upcoming football games, sponsored by BB&B, sort of "taking up the slack" for the athletic dept's lack of marketing savvy.

    Re: All Sports Radio Sponsorship for 06-07 year

    What if...we did the asking for Ronnie, Jim, Dan, ect. What I'm saying is, what if we were the mouth-peices? What if we made it our responsibility to advertise for Tech? We could raise money to run ads in certain places. Radio or TV or whatever we could afford at the time. There are 2,400 Tech Alumni in Rapides Parish alone. If we could get half of those people to donate 50 bucks to champs...we've got $120,000. We say, "This ad was paid for by LaTechBBB.com". We are advertising for us and we possibly raise the total athletic budget. Jim and Dan won't call certain folks...but they don't call anybody else either. Just because they won't be proactive doesn't mean we can't be. We either collect the money and then give it, or we ask the folks to write something about BBB on their donation. That way, the administration knows how much work we've done. We could iron out the kinks later, I just thought of that, so I wanted to post it.

    Ed can correct me if I'm wrong -

    Right now, for the upcoming NEW sports year starting with FOOTBALL and going through baseball 2007 - we would be looking at about $3,500 to $4,000...

    They would bill us over a 9 month period - so somehwhere around $400 to $450 a month for the fees -

    Usually - if someone says they will do it - they are good about sending the check -

    And with something like this it gives us SEVERAL months to make the decision and get the ball rolling -

    Hope that helps Dan

    Don't think it would work and there is NO way JO would relinquish that type of power and money -

    We are much better at doing SET individual projects that can be done quickly and we can point DIRECTLY to where the money went -

    Sounds like a good idea.
    Like I have said before, if we promote BB&B support for LOUISIANA TECH will follow. So change my maybe to yes.

    Re: All Sports Radio Sponsorship for 06-07 year

    I think us promoting games would be great while also promoting BBB, but I think it is best through newspaper ads. We could start by posting a few ads telling what BBB is and posting game times along with www.latechbbb.com.

    I think this is good because it has the address written down and people don't have to remember it. I tend to view a site when I see it written down than when I hear it. It would be great if we could do radio sponsorship and newspaper ads.

    I am not saying that we want people to join and give money to us, but some people are not comfortable donating to Tech because of the way they have handled money before. This gives them the opportunity to see what projects BBB is raising money for and they can donate specifically to that. It doesn't really matter where they donate money, but if they knew where it was going besides general fund, they would be more likely to donate.

    I'm going to pose this question to you -

    Isn't our TARGET audience FIRST AND FOREMOST those people who are listening to the sports broadcast on radio - especially football and basketball?

    If we did newspaper ads I'd like to see us run "floating island" ads inside the sports agate. 2 column by 1 inch ads that reads just this:

    www.latechbbb.com

    We'd have to pay extra for special placement, but think of the effect.

    I think the same type banner on the rails at the goal or 5 yd. line of JAS (tv attraction), or over the fence at Love Field (or even painted on the outfield fence! )

    DFM-You are absolutly correct. That is BB&B target audience. The newspaper thing is not a bad idea, just not enough bang for your buck. Let's get a couple more thousand on this board and collect more money to do that later.

    I think so, but I also think that we need to target the students. The students are a voice and they are bodies. They could give us the attendance figures we need. The students want so badly to be passionate about something and BBB could provide a little direction for that. I think that with an increase in student involvement, our goals would be attained much much easier. Passionate kids get their parents (and their wallets) to games whether they graduated from Tech or not. My parents are both NSU folks, but they hold Tech season tickets because of my little brother.
