As we enter into the month of August, the days start to get shorter, a little cooler, and a sense of relaxation takes over.  The kids go back to school, their extracurricular activities kick in, and the carpooling begins.  This quickly takes your sense of relaxation into coordination and communication overload.  Don’t fret for too long, though, you always have Sunday afternoons to fall back on.  Sundays in the fall are reserved exclusively for football.  August kicks off tailgate season which spills right into December and beyond.  While many of us aren’t season ticket holders, we do contribute to our favorite teams in other ways such as tailgating, grabbing dinner at a local restaurant on game day, or going to a friends to have a few beverages while rooting on the home team.

Although we may not directly influence the marketers employed by our favorite team, we are part of the process for the community as a whole.  Inevitably, in addition to the game itself, further entertainment or resources are needed to entertain or fulfill our downtime between plays.  Below are a few hand selected products that can be used to not only entertain us throughout the game but also to continue to build brand awareness and integrity.  One of the three main points (Know, Trust, Like) to selling can be accomplished through these products – LIKE.  If a contact likes you or your product / service, you’re one step closer to solidifying your relationship.
