IN-STORE & ADVERTISING SUPPORT

In addition to the great manufacturer and vendor contributions, GTS will also be including the following:

  • $100 Food & Beverage Credit – Whether you use it for a pizza party, coffee and donuts, or your favorite beverages 😉 and snacks, treat your customers to something on us!*

*  Must submit receipt to GTS sales representative 

We have been advertising this “SAVE THE DATE” piece in the September, October and November issues of Beckett Baseball and Football. The collector facing tagline, “Is Your LCS Participating?” was purposefully used to drive traffic to shops to ask about the event. (We’ve already heard from some of you that it worked.) 👍 Additionally, we have been running banner impressions on the Beckett website and will continue to do so through the event day of December 11th, 2021.

We will also be running a banner ad on Sports Collectors Daily starting on November 1st. Also, beginning at some point in November, we will simultaneously be running banner advertising on Cardboard Connection. All digital ad spots will run through the event day.

STORE LOCATOR

All digital ads, mentioned above, will link to a pinned Facebook post on the National Hobby Shop Day Facebook Page. That post will be used to provide a regularly updated list of participating stores. Once the B2B sales promotion ends on December 3rd, that pinned Facebook post will link back to this post, which will by then have been updated with the complete list of participating stores.

ADDITIONAL SUPPORT

Our business was built on the motto of Great Teams Succeed, in recent years that motto has evolved to become Partners in Success and later, The Power of Partnership. This year, we are going to aid are valued customers even further in that success and partnership with some specific content designed to help you have your most successful in-store event ever!

We are excited to have access to a sports collectibles industry veteran, who specializes in event management.  A special welcome to Sarah Martin, who most recently worked in the industry for Upper Deck! Sarah will be providing her keys to hosting a successful in-store event as well as doing a Q&A* on social media.

* Date, time TBD
