WE LIKE SPORTS. AND YOU PLAY SPORTS. SO WE LIKE YOU TOO.
Marketing. Management. Media. Motion. Mobile. Those are the five M’s. 5M Sports can be defined as a ‘creative branding’ firm, dedicated to working strictly with athletes and sports organizations. We focus on development in five areas: brand identity, brand awareness, online presence, social networking and video campaigns. From the marketing and management of an athlete’s brand identity and online presence, to creating viral video campaigns featuring an athlete’s personality, to seeking out new ways to communicate with fans through mobile devices and social networking, 5M Sports is committed to helping athletes and organizations stay ahead of the curve.
5M Sports can be your creative solution.
Brand Identity IT ALL STARTS WITH A LOOK
Most athletes are identified by their name and their number. However, it shouldnâ€™t be the thing that defines them. At 5M Sports, we will develop the brand identity for you based on the values, morals and goals you hold true. After discussing ideas with you, we can begin to develop the best looking, well-designed representation of you. It will be tailor made to you. No templates. No copycats. Completely original, and weâ€™ll give you several different ideas and concepts to choose from, and at that point, we will perfect your brand identity to your liking.
AND GROWS INTO A FOLLOWING
Once your brand identity is developed, it must be put to use. This is where 5M Sportsâ€™ brand awareness comes into play. By building your identity, we will begin marketing (or helping your marketing team market) your core values to gather new endorsements and a wider fan base. From marketing materials to e-mail campaigns to developing an online presence and social networking for you, we will ensure you are known worldwide and will be at the top of the mostpurchased jersey list. â€œI wanna be like (insert your name)!â€? will become the new phrase. Children will aspire to be you. Adults will idolize and cheer you on every time you take the court or field. We can build personalized merchandise for you to sell on your website, at camps, or to sign for charities. These things go a long way to building up your brand.
Online Presence THEN NEW MEDIA TAKES OVER
The professional athlete has undergone a transformation since the turn of the 21st Century off the field of play. With constant technological advances and the everexpanding realms of online presence, the Internet has become a more important tool for athletes to use in connecting with fans, selling exclusive merchandise and building a brand identity to attract endorsements and marketing contracts. At 5M Sports, our design team will conceptualize, design, develop, maintain and manage a fully functional web site. It can easily be updated, integrating a blog for you to keep fans aware of games and other major events in their favorite playerâ€™s life. Because of the growing market of mobile devices, we will take online presence a step further, given your dedication, with the development of athlete-specification iPhone applications and mobile sites.
FINDING A NEW WAY TO CONNECT
Having a Web site nowadays isnâ€™t enough. If you wish to connect to your fans and gain new ones, you have to go out and work for it. Thatâ€™s where social networking comes into play. From YouTube to Facebook to MySpace to Twitter, athletes can use these free and simple resources to attract a new both younger and older - fan base. Facebook, alone, has more than 65 million active users worldwide. Twitter, which can be updated from any mobile device or online, is a tool used for microblogging, allowing fans to keep updated with your whereabouts, thoughts, ticket giveaways and contests. And we can teach you about and lead these online campaigns.
Video Campaigns AND ENTERTAIN OLD & NEW FANS
From the highlight reels to the endorsement commercials, we can help develop a solid and professional promotional video campaign to gain further marketing deals with companies worldwide. Utilizing the resources available to you, we can capture and direct short videos that feature your personality, not just your skill and talent. We will focus on what makes you a humanitarian, not just an athlete, and what you do, not just on the field, but also off the field. Most companies try to find athletes who share their same values, and we can help develop those relationships with our video production.
