How to score with customers during the 2018 World Cup
With the fixtures running throughout the working day and into the early evening, there is plenty of opportunity to get into the World Cup spirit. Whether you are a football fan or not, there are many advantages to enjoying (or suffering) World Cup Fever for a few weeks.
Score with sales
For many, the World Cup is going to be a focus of discussion and distraction. However, you can use this to your advantage particularly if you are in the sales field. As they say ‘a little bit of knowledge can go a along way’. Keep up with World Cup progress and it could provide you with that perfect conversation starter with potential clients. You might even bond over a goal.
Whether you run a sweepstake, create a social media competition, invite clients to watch a game or host a football themed event, the tournament offers you the opportunity to engage with your customers, prospects and equally importantly your work colleagues. Channel your efforts to having some fun and create some memorable marketing campaigns, be they face to face or in the virtual world. And there is plenty of branded merchandise available to match your needs.
If you can’t beat them join them
Research has revealed that there is a direct link between World Cups and spikes in sickness leave. So may be this tournament is something you should embrace – even if that means streaming the games in a conference room. You might find it increases productivity.
