5 tips to create the perfect app for your Football Fan Club!
Written by Sara Guiral on
It's because I'm familiar with the feeling that I can clame an app and its social features are the perfect medium to further bring a community together. So, let's see how to create an app to channel the enthusiasm of football lovers, shall we?
#1 Satisfy curiosity
You can even keep in touch with your audience and schedule push notifications related to a specific section. Or, in real time, make use of manual push notifications for an out of the blue update that might come up just before the game. Better yet, make use of geo alerts and engage the supporters on location, with Geofencing, the perfect feature for events.
#2 Capture emotions
With a Submission section, you can let users add content to your app: text, photos and videos. With the stories they know, their experience and anecdotes, it will make your app all the more valuable. User Generated Content can play an important part of your content strategy and it's also useful to keep the fans engaged.
#3 Be useful
By adding an Event section you can, once again, connect it to external sources (such as an existing Google Calendar) or use our mCMS. You can let users know when to meet up, with notifications. And last but not least, make sure your section is inviting, with our choice of templates.
#4 Be social
To put yourself on the map, create an official hashtag for Twitter, to launch the game or for every time something important happens in your team. You can also introduce a hashtag to regroup all the selfies taken by fans with their favorite players. By federating the supporters on social media, inside the app, the Twitter section can refresh accordingly, making the conversation easier to follow. To make the magic happen, just put a filter with the hashtag in your Twitter section and then your app will display all the tweets with the designated hashtag.
#5 Keep things interesting
Fans will enjoy reliving the game with videos of the highlights of the match, the best goals. Just create a playlist on your YouTube channel and connect it inside your app. You want to provide exclusive content? Gain backstage access and share the players' practice with your community. You can publish it with our mCMS and reserve access to logged in members only.
