Interact. Chapter content is updated annually so instructors, students, and managers receive the latest best practices and insights into sports & entertainment marketing. The interactive nature of the online community allows professors and professionals to offer input to the materials and insights available on the site. Students and professors may make comments on each chapter. Since today’s learners always have their iPhone, iPad, or other mobile device in hand, the book is available 24/7.
Go Green. In an ecological and economic sense, you and your students save green using Team Sports Marketing in the classroom. First, no trees were killed in the production of this website. Second, the student subscription rate of $25 for six months offers great value compared to quickly out-dated hard copy textbooks. For those wanting a lifetime subscription, the $100 subscription still compares favorably with hard copy texts.
Contribute. As a professor, your work may already be cited in Team Sports Marketing. If not, we are always looking for published empirical studies that would add to our understanding! Please submit the citation reference, a PDF or link to the article, and your suggestion of where it fits to The Author. You may also want to submit a blog/article related to the Baylor S3 Report or to use with one of the text sections. Please email or call.
Preview. Instructors or organizational buyers wishing to review the text may email The Author for free access to the text and instructor’s materials. For each chapter, Team Sports Marketing includes (a) PowerPoint slides containing class exercises and discussion (b) list of key terms & chapter essay question, and (c) multiple choice test bank questions.
The text begins with, What is sports marketing?, including the framework for the chapters. You may sample Chapter 1, Antecedents to Fan Identification and Passion or Chapter 9, on Managing the Sportscape for free. An overview of each section of the book can also be viewed for each of the sections in the text: The Fan, Marketing Management, and Sponsorships. The Marketing Management section contains the majority of the chapters–and that overview page contains an introduction to each of these chapters.
