With offline marketing programs in place, Sportball Quebec had not yet embarked on anything related to social media or digital marketing. Spark Boutik worked with the leadership team to understand the business processes, goals, previous practices and consumer behaviours specific to each market.

Facebook Fan Gate
Educating the marketplace of what Sportball is, and driving trial of the experience was the core objective. Spark Boutik developed a customer Facebook experience that would allow users to download a ‘Free Trial Class’ voucher, while also embedding various media such as introductory videos and downloadable information sheets pertaining to another targeted initiative. Furthermore, this experience was made available in both English and Francais.
Sportball Quebec has been generating blog content for a while, but doing so on a non-branded domain. Spark Boutik worked to identify the various assets in which this content appeared, and consolidate it into a branded and owned domain.
