In addition to the ALWAYSLIVE Platform, ALWAYSLIVE partners with top-tier Event Directors to maximize the exposure potential of their events. This means providing guidance and assistance with event coverage to ensure that complete game video, advanced statistics and enhanced player data is collected and made available via the ALWAYSLIVE Platform. ALWAYSLIVE’s portfolio of event services includes low cost, self-service coverage options, online and social media event promotion, revenue-generating online and onsite Event Stores and financial assistance to grow existing events and bring more events to market.
ALWAYSLIVE’s event coverage model provides support and self-service options so an event can capture relevant player and game performance data required to create NCAA-compliant player profiles on the ALWAYSLIVE Platform.
Complete Game Video
Training, support, gear rental and resource options are provided for capturing complete game video, shot for analysis (breakdown)
Training, support and tools are offered for capturing advanced stats that college coaches and recruiters are looking for (e.g., assists, blocks, steals and other stats not captured in the typical pre-collegiate scoring process)
Enhanced Player Data
Training, support and tools are offered for capturing enhanced player data that college coaches and recruiters are looking for and the NCAA requires (e.g., biological, academic, combine results and other attributes not captured in the registration process)
ALWAYSLIVE’s event promotion offerings include event facility/courtside marketing and multi-channel event promotion campaigns via social media to increase visibility of your event and drive more teams to register for it.
Registering your event as an event with ALWAYSLIVE Exposure! includes a complete Event Profile Page on the ALWAYSLIVE Event Directory. The directory is marketed to High School, Prep School and league coaches as well as college coaches and recruiters so your event can be seen by decision makers at the team and recruiting levels.
Facility / Courtside Marketing
High-quality banners, posters and window clings that tell everyone your event will have ALWAYSLIVE Exposure! and give them social media tags and handles to find out more about the event will be provided so that you can promote your event at the facility it will be held in. Options are available for co-branding and materials can be sent 1-3 weeks prior to your event to allow for sufficient pre-event promotion.
Event Promotion Campaigns
A professionally designed and managed multi-channel communication campaign will be customized and provided for your event. Each campaign begins when your event is registered and promotes your event across multiple channels (email and social media) for 3-8 weeks prior to your event start date. A post-event wrap-up is included.
ALWAYSLIVE’s Event Store offering provides services that players, coaches and fans attending your event are asking for and provides additional revenue streams for you by profit-sharing of the proceeds.
All complete game videos collected from your event will be professionally edited and placed in an online Video on Demand page that is unique to and co-branded with your event. All videos will be available to download and/or stream for a small charge.
Game Statistics Service (available 1Q18)
A basic and advanced film analysis service is available for a reasonable charge to those coaches or players who choose not to compute statistics for their own games.
ALWAYSLIVE t-shirts, jerseys, hoodies, sweat bands and compression sleeves (to mention a few) will be available for sale online and (optionally) onsite. Co-branding options are available.
Various basketball-related items, toys and novelties priced between $5 and $100 will be available for sale online and (optionally) onsite. Co-branding options are available.
