Ticket touts disgrace: Row upon row of empty seats... as tickets sent to foreign VIPs go on the black market

Ticket touts disgrace: Row upon row of empty seats... as tickets sent to foreign VIPs go on the black market | Sports Facility Management.3102824 | Scoop.it

Scotland Yard said every illegal seller arrested so far had held tickets despatched overseas to national committees and official re-sellers. One of the touts held is from Germany, another from Slovakia. But a prickly Lord Coe insisted the ticketing process had worked. He even dismissed pictures of empty seats as ‘holiday snaps’ before admitting troops and students could be used to fill gaps.

There is nothing better than recognizing the men and women who work countless hours in order to provide the attending sports fan a memorable experience. This article also highlights the importance of an Enterprise asset management (EAM) & Computerized Maintenance Management Software. It also gives a great example on a stadiums recommendation to improve their maintenance issues. This article also has links to get great information on several different aspects of sports management that can be very useful for our final project.

Good look at behind the scenese of facility management. 

Cam Farnham's curator insight, October 15, 2014 12:33 AM

1. I learned that without a good EAM CMMS solution, maintenance can quickly skyrocket in price. Yes the job will get done, but the operation skyrockets in price. Also i learned that if you plan your maintenance through spreadsheets, you will forget something.  The article compares it to when someone tried to plan there days using sticky notes. You will loose them , and will always miss something.

 

2. I found it interesting that there were 7 specific objectives they described. I thought there could be an endless amount of objectives to make the maintenance  of sport better. Also i found it interesting that the article stated the community would be much happier if they did not have get a new stadium, because of costs and memories.

 

3. I selected this article because one of my first jobs might be working for a sports team in the facility field. I always thought driving a zamboni would be such a cool and fun job. Another reason i chose this is because my father has told me many cool stories about facility management. My father worked for the Brown University facility management staff when he was in college, until he made the football team.

 

4.This information about facility management will help me out because i know how to stay organized and how to be the most successful. I know not to use spreadsheets, or sticky notes to plan maintenance. Also i know specific objectives to get done to be the most successful and to make everyone happy.

4 Myths of Social Media Marketing

4 Myths of Social Media Marketing | Sports Facility Management.3102824 | Scoop.it

"Social media marketing is the shiny new toy. Businesses were provided tools that they could use themselves to promote their business.

 

Coca Cola changed its marketing strategy from creative excellence to content excellence.

They had realized that social media was able to spread their content and ideas with velocity and the crowd could create and share more stories on social networks than they could ever hope to buy.

 

The democratization of marketing was now evident.

 

Here the 4 Myths of Social Media Marketing:

 

Myth #1. It’s Simple

There are many myths about social media marketing but the biggest one by far is that it is easy and can be done by an intern at lunch time.

 

Myth #2. It’s Free

Planning , creating content, optimizing for search, publishing to multiple platforms takes time. Time is money.

 

Enterprise class tools are not free. Participating on Facebook may cost nothing and tweeting is free but the content and eco-sytem to support a sustained social media marketing effort requires budget and commitment. Professional videos still cost money to produce and edit.

 

 

Myth #3. It’s Just Facebook

Many organisations think that because Facebook dominates the social media numbers game with nearly one billion users, that it is the only social media network to consider in a social media marketing strategy.

Facebook only allows less than 15% of your updates to appear in your Facebook followers timelines through its “Edge Rank” algorithms.

 

 

Myth #4. Social Media is the “Silver Bullet”

Social media is not your marketing saviour.

Remember to continue to optimize your online properties for search engines.

 

Being found on Google is still a “must do”. If you aren’t doing this then you need to reconsider some of your marketing budget priorities. Social media marketing advertising is still only $5 billion and search engine marketing spend is 10 times larger at $50 billiuon plus because it works".

Crowd control is a huge part of sports facility management. The Minnesota Twins decided to update their security with state of the art cameras after the Los Angeles Dodgers dilemma. it's interesting that this huge investment actually helped them financially in the long run. This article expresses how important facility management is to the sport business. Not only does this teach future sport managers how to manage an aspect such as crowd control, but also improve communication and management skills to find a financial benefit from this in the long run.
