Social Media in Sports Night (#BrewersSMIS) Recap
Last night over 70 Brewers fans and social media aficionados joined us at Miller Park for our first Social Media in Sports Night.
John (@jstein1981) and Cait (@CMoyer) led a panel discussion in the Media Interview Room where a number of personalities with their feet in social media in the Wisconsin sports scene talked about how social media has changed the was they do business.
Brewers play-by-play radio voice Joe Block (@Joe_Block) kicked off the discussion with talking about how he integrates social media in his job. Block also expressed the important role Twitter played in helping him get to know Brewers fans.
Brewers pitcher Chris Narveson (@sleep_trick), who is recovering from surgery and is out for the year, also joined the discussion. He talked about how he was going to use Twitter to help him stay connected to fans during his rehab.
The main members of the panel included Jon Greenberg (@JonAdmirals) from the Milwaukee Admirals, Nick Monroe (@NMonroe) from the Milwaukee Bucks, Tina Wagner (@Tina_J_Wagner) from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and Garrison Cummings (@gwcummings) from the Green Bay Packers.
The group discussed what promotions have worked the best in the past, how they use social media to promote their brands, which social networks their organizations use, and who their favorite brands or people are that they follow on Twitter.
Following the discussion, the group watched the game from the ATI Club in right field. Although the outcome of the game wasn’t great, the night was still a success.
