Taking your Athletic Social Media Presence to a New Level
Social media is a crucial tool for athletic programs at any level, and for more than just keeping fans and followers up to date on game results! While posting game updates and final scores is valuable, mixing in some more personal content can take your engagement to the next level. Check out the video below to see how you can use Gipper to share more authentic, personal stories in your feed:

Quote graphics are a great way of letting the voices/stories of your student-athletes (and their coaches) be heard. These voices/stories are always available, but most schools don't share them on social media. This is a missed opportunity!
A well rounded social media presence celebrates not only the success of a school's teams, but also the individuals behind them. Along with quotes, you can share events like a student's signing day decision, the hiring of a new coach, or an "Athlete of the Week" award announcement. Even a quick post-game video after of player's reaction to a big win!
Celebrating moments like these will help keep your program in the thoughts of your followers while also fostering a personal tie between your players and fans. All-in-all, this will help you kick your social media engagement up a notch!
Gipper has a wide selection of ready-made templates dedicated to these types of personalized posts. We also know that time is always limited for anyone working in an athletic department - so we've streamlined the editing process so you can share stunning, branded content in just a matter of seconds (seriously).

Thanks so much for reading!
