In about 10 days I will be launching a project that I’ve been working on with a number of great people. The project will be the product of two-years of work spent building a marketing/branding infrastructure and key relationships with people who can help give us a leg up. All this is done with the aim of providing fencing wtih a real powerful product for the public that we can use to garner sponsorships, new fans, new fencers etc.
We’ll also be raising money for many of our Olympic hopefuls to help support their training for London 2012.
I’m going to need all the help and energy of everyone to make it successful. If we do, it will be showing an awful lot of people just the tip of the iceberg of the value that we know is contained within the fencing community. Our fencing community united is a serious force to be reckoned with!
We won’t be able to succeed without you…more to come…but to give you a little hint we’re going to selling 2,000 seats for a fencing tournament (we aim to sell out) and this will be the first televised fencing tournament of a goal I’m driving towards to get fencing on TV 4 times a year.(hopefully by 2014…(And don’t forget 1 million members by 2020!)
Thanks for all your support so far…let’s rally around something super positive!
In the initial days, I would love for you to utilize your FB statuses, twitter statuses, profiles etc. to generate a strong social media launch.
Then of course, we’ll need you to buy tickets/help us sell tickets to the tournament!
GET READY… 🙂
