Since 2020, P.LEAGUE+ has partnered with GoSky to create a new interactive form between professional basketball and fans through social digital technology, understanding fan expectations and feedback on games through data. In the 2021-22 season, the Kaohsiung Steel team announced joining the P.LEAGUE+ league, with the Fengshan Sports Center in Kaohsiung City as their home court. As a new team, quickly accumulating fans on social platforms with low reach rates is a top priority. The fastest way to gather fans is to let everyone know the strength of the Kaohsiung Steel team. Therefore, the pre-season warm-up games on November 13th and 14th, 2021 became the best opportunity.

Kaohsiung Steel teamed up with GoSky, using message advertising with GoSky Social CRM and various promotion channels to quickly increase visibility on social media, promoting the warm-up games on November 13th and 14th, attracting nearly 9,000 fans to attend!

Expanding advertising reach and Social CRM inventory, quickly accumulating loyal fans!

As a newly established professional basketball team, the quickest way to accumulate fans is to make them aware of the team's strength. Social media channels have become an important means of promoting game information. The Kaohsiung Steel team partnered with GoSky AI and used two types of advertising: traffic-based ads and message ads + GoSky Social CRM, to quickly reach potential fans on Facebook and Instagram, recommending suitable warm-up games. It is hoped that through the games, fans can quickly become supporters and in the interactive process, recommend peripheral products to lead traffic to the online store, allowing fans to bring team merchandise to the game to support the Kaohsiung Steel team on game day.

This promotion strategy successfully attracted fans' attention and brought additional social media interaction. The message ads + GoSky Social CRM had more than 62.5% of fans continuously interacting with the Kaohsiung Steel team, of which 45% were fans who completed warm-up game ticket purchases, successfully finding the first loyal fans for the Kaohsiung Steel team. With the promotion through social media, news media, and various channels, a total of more than 9,000 fans were attracted to attend the game!

The Kaohsiung Steel team's performance in the warm-up games also successfully attracted fans. On November 14th, they defeated the defending champion, Taipei Fubon Warriors, and star player Lu Cheng-Ju scored 35 points! After the P.LEAGUE+ fans voted using GoSky Social CRM from Facebook and Instagram, Lu Cheng-Ju became the P.LEAGUE+ fan-voted MVP of the week!
