Reunited and it feels so good.
I did that in my best Peaches & Herb voice(s). Why? Because CadChica Sports is proud to announce another media partnership with the fine folks at Q1 Productions (@Q1Sports). For the first time last year, CCS was asked to partner with Q1 for their 1st (now annual) Digital Sports Fan Engagement Conference.
It came as somewhat of a surprise to me. CCS had not been asked to be a media partner before in any capacity. Truth be told, it threw me for a loop. I didn’t look at CCS in that way — influential media partner. But, I guess there’s something to this little thing I’m doing.
When I announced the partnership last year with Q1, I was prompted to find the above Jean Kerr quote. For me, it’s all about having a voice in sports. As many have documented, the woman’s voice in sports is muted. To me, the fan’s voice was always stereotyped. To some degree it still is – as is the woman’s voice. I don’t look at myself as a female sports fan like some women sports media claim they are. I don’t like that label. I’m a sports fan, plain and simple.
I think like a sports fan even though I’m in media (with marketing-type thinking sometimes). It’s that perspective that attracts me to an event like Q1’s next Sports Fan Engagement Forum (#q1SFE15). Bringing “together marketing executives from throughout the industry to discuss and debate the exciting initiatives taking shape that engage and connect fans with sports teams” – Q1 recognizes the importance of the fan’s voice. Those teams and leagues who are successful in social media think like fans – that’s who Q1 will have at this forum.
With this partnership comes the return of CadChica Sports’ Tuesday Ten Show on Google+. Tuesday Ten has been on hiatus since August. The fall sports season is a busy one both in my job and blog life so the show took a break. Took. The show will return with interviews from some of the featured speakers at the forum. You’ll be able to get a taste of what all will take place in Kansas City, MO in March. That’s GREAT news!
GREAT? Yes, GREAT NEWS!!!
Why? Because not only will Tuesday Ten be returning, but once again, CadChica Sports followers will receive a registration discount – simply use code CADCHICA to receive $100 off your registration here. It’s not Discount-Double-Check, but $100 off??? Yeah, that’s a great deal!
I’ve got my trip booked! So should you!!!!
