Livonia, MI, United States, 2010/02/04 - Building on an already extensive list of popular client programs, Entertainment Adv, is pleased to announce the launch of a community marketing campaign for one of Metro Detroit’s most well respected professional sports teams: The Detroit Pistons.
The Detroit Pistons and The Palace of Auburn Hills have been known as the leaders in the sports industry, in customer entertainment and customer service along with championship basketball teams. The Pistons have won 3 NBA Championships (1989, 1990, 2004) and Forbes magazine routinely ranks The Detroit Pistons as one of the most valuable NBA franchises.
Entertainment Advertising’s one-of-a-kind referral marketing approach, which is currently used by dozens of professional and collegiate sports organizations, including The New York Yankees, Los Angeles Clippers, Dallas Stars, as well as many local companies such as Tuffy Automotive and Hungry Howie’s Pizza will be promoting a special promotional package for the 2009-2010 Pistons regular season.
Through this unique partnership Entertainment Advertising will develop a special VIP promotional package that offers - free and discounted tickets - and introduce them to business communities across the Metro Detroit Area in the form of its signature Smart Circle Cards.
"We know that the Detroit Pistons are using many marketing programs to raise awareness about their storied franchise. We believe that we will assist with furthering the personal interaction and loyalty that the Detroit Pistons are known for," said Brad Hawes, Regional Area Marketing Director for Smart Circle International. "Through Entertainment Advertising’s innovative marketing technique, with the use of the experienced field teams, and the great value on the Smart Circle cards, we will be able to really penetrate the community and use advertising and marketing tactics in a way that blends directly into the lives of the most passive fans all the way to the most avid fans."
The campaign will give consumers in Metro Detroit more opportunities to take in additional Pistons games at The Palace of Auburn Hills. "We are extremely proud of the opportunity to work with the Detroit Pistons (detroitpistons.com) and look forward to continuing our support to not only the Pistons but other local businesses throughout Michigan. Now, they too can reap the benefits that our professional sales force brings to the table and enjoy real results to their bottom line."
