Impactiv8 - Partnership Quote

I can’t believe I made it through 2013 (and not just cause of what the Mayan’s had to say), but I was genuinely expecting 2012 to be a nightmare year. Why you ask?

Social Media Provides Opportunities For Sport To Build Engaged Communities

Sports Equipment

Sport is inherently social, however many sporting organisations have chosen to steer well clear of social media due to the bad wrap it has received in the press – largely as a result of it being misused by athletes. Rather than focusing on the negatives, sporting organisations should take a look at how businesses have used this media effectively, the opportunities that social media provides and how this can be replicated within the context of a sporting organisation.
