“We’re excited about the new structure of the Spartan Social Army, which will allow us to more effectively divide and conquer when it comes to collecting, creating and sharing content,”
In an effort to expand content sharing and event coverage across the US, Spartan has revamped its popular “Spartan Social Army” program with the creation of three team-member categories: “Social Media Influencer,” “On-Site Social Activation” and “On-Site Content.” The three categories were created to provide opportunities for brand loyalists to play a role in expanding community outreach and the global brand awareness of Spartan.
Team members will share the best possible event and race content, images, videos, and community stories with fans across Spartan social channels. Additionally, team members will help increase the racer and fan experience at events and races around the country.
“We’re excited about the new structure of the Spartan Social Army, which will allow us to more effectively divide and conquer when it comes to collecting, creating and sharing content,” said Spartan Director of Social Media Anthony Yepez.
The new program places an emphasis on regional outreach, developing ambassadors within specific areas of the country so teams will know their markets and have an innate knowledge of the venues and local players to produce insightful, in-depth coverage.
Spartan Social Army Team members will earn perks and complimentary items throughout the season - that may include exclusive Spartan merchandise, discounts, and rewards by participating partners. Actual perks and complimentary items to be determined by Spartan during the year with redemption and eligibility terms and conditions announced at a later date - stay tuned!.
“We’re dedicated to creating and sharing the highest quality content possible, and for that reason, we evaluated the current program and thoughtfully updated it so it’s inclusive and structured in a way that all members get the most out of their experience with Spartan. The regional focus is especially exciting – if you think about it, there is no one better to share in-depth news from the events and races you care about the most, then the people who are embedded in your local communities,” added Yepez.
