How About A Million Dollar Shoot Out!

Friday, April 30, 2010

Prizes at golf tournaments and outings vary, sometimes a car is won, maybe a vacation. Recently, an increasing number of golf contests and tournaments have offered a $1,000,000 prize. A Shoot Out worth $1Million is very exciting, though some planners might find it hard to fit that much prize money into their budget. This is where creativity and insurance coverage of the prize money come into play. And, you can use the excitement and draw of a Million Dollar Shoot Out to your advantage.

The type of event or tournament you are sponsoring will help determine the most effective way of awarding the lucky few or, that lucky one winner, the chance to win $1Million.  If the tournament is being help to benefit a charity, why not raffle off the chance to take the lucky shot. Have people purchase their tickets during the event and hold the drawing later in the event. By doing this, you can generate excitement for the drawing and encourage people to buy chances throughout the event.  Another great idea is to auction off the chance to make the $1 Million shot.  Both of these methods generate excitement for the $1 Million prize as well as raising additional funds for your charity.

Advertising at Golf Tournaments Shows Benefits

Friday, April 23, 2010

In recent years Golf Tournaments have steadily become a popular way to raise money for a charity or cause.  The primary reason a company would support a tournament is an association with the cause.  Another reason to support a tournament is for a chance to use effective and proven advertising to generate business for you company.

Research at various marketing and advertising firms has supported the use of advertising at tournaments.  One of most popular and widely used companies was car dealerships. The research yielded results supporting all forms of advertising that could be used at golf tournaments.  The usage of hats and bags sporting the company logo were taken into factor.  As well as the signage used around the course, to the cars that were on display at the hole-in-one.  These various methods helped expose the company to many people, which in turn drew more people to the dealership interested in purchasing a car.  These results generated more numbers than paper advertisements and radio spots.

Research and studies aside sponsoring a golf outing is also an effective way to reach out to customers on a more personal and local level.  People view a company’s interest in a local charity or cause as an interest in the community itself.  This along with effective advertsing generates a positive association with the company.

US Hole in One has been producing event and sponsor signs for years.  Whether it be several prize signs for the hole in one insurance to orders of a couple dozen custom hole and event signs, it can all be done professionally and in a timely fashion.
