That is why the board ads are more expensive.



WAY more expensive - i once inquired for my company - this was 5 years ago - 1/2 a season for board coverage - $500k. Of course it comes with many more advertising vehicles - the programs, signage in other areas of the arena, etc. but the boards and the ice are for national chains that have massive budgets.

I was down at UVA this weekend and I went to a Girls Exhibition Basketball game at their really nice two year old arena. They had a T-Shirt launch but they not only had the mascot and the cheerleaders throwing the shirts but they also had shirts on parachutes drop down from the rafters. I think that having shirts come down from the rafters on parachutes would be a great feature at The Rock.

The license plate frame was from the very early 90s, because it had the old colors on it.

I was reading these.. and look at all of our ideas that most likely influenced the Devils marketing team!! I mean some of these are EXACT-- Family 4 packs, college nights, doc night... it's just CRAZY to see that stuff. Bravo to DevilinLA, bravo to us njdevs people!!

2.) More Puck Giveaway Nights
8.) Less Dancing Girls Time
9.) More Television Commercial Advertising Promoting the Team
14.) A DEFINATE "CELEBRATE DOC EMRICK night" - ceremony and all - to commemorate his induction honor and team service over the years. (there is a boblehead ripe for the making right here!)
21.) Devils Night Out (modeled on Columbus Blue Jackets "Jackets Night Out"): A
Tuesday/Wed/Thu. Night Promotion " 2 people/2 beers/ 2 individual pizzas "
For a set incentive price.
24.) College ID Discount Night
28.) Devils Family Four Pack: (4 food Vouchers, 4 Drink Vouchers, 4 Tickets)
Featuring incentive-priced tickets

I was thinking the same thing MB. I don't know whether we had any huge influence or not...but it still looked good.

I am planning on doing another NJDEVS FEEDBACK LETTER at the end of the season. Again get opinions and comments from the board here...Sort of a "what worked, what didn't" from a fan point of view with some "we still would like to see....".

If all goes well for the team....I want be writing it until well into MAY.....

Definitely write another one, this one went really, really well well imo, even if they didn't respond too much.

Again, fantastic job DevilInLA :thumbsup:

For those interested I will be recirculating the Official Marketing Feedback letter in the middle of June (post cup) for everyone to add new or similar feedback.

Some have suggested opening the letter to posters from other Devils forums (devilsrule, etc.),

What are the thoughts on that?
