Tigris Personnel Executes an Interactive Marketing Stunt for TSN
If you were hustling through Union Station this past Mon., Mar. 18, it would have been impossible to miss our team of high energy brand ambassadors dressed like basketball stars.
Our team assisted with the launch of a “March Madness” promotion for TSN- an interactive marketing campaign to promote National Bracket Day for the NCAA. Dressed as passionate players in red and white uniforms, the Tigris team helped cure the m0rning blues one commuter at a time by handing out stress balls disguised as mini-basketballs.
After just 1 hour and 15 minutes, our brand ambassadors had successfully handed out 15,000 mini basketballs breaking our own record for last years EURO Cup launch for TSN handing out the same volume – 15,000 “tickets” – in two hours.
Our Interactive Marketing Campaign Proves to be Productive
An annual rite of Spring, the NCAA basketball tournament has become one of the most prominent sporting events on the calendar. Coverage of the tournament began Thursday March 21 with all‐day coverage on TSN and TSN2. Research has proven those completing a “bracket” are significantly more likely to tune‐in to NCAA March Maness broadcasts onTSN, making this interactive marketing campaign an important one!
Whether diehard fans make their bracket picks using statistical data, or casual fans make their picks based on the team logos or their favorite colours, TSN has a bracket for everyone. The winner of the 2013 Men’s Tournament Challenge gets a chance at a $10,000 cash prize. Not a bad return for a few weeks of heart-racing finishes and buzzer beaters! The purpose of this interactive marketing program was to encourage individuals to fill out their brackets for the NCAA Men’s Basketball Championships featuring the top 68 college basketball teams.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Brackets……. There are 6 rounds to the NCAA tournament, for each correct winner picked, a player is awarded points based on what round the winner is picked in. The points per round increase as the tournament progresses. The chart below shows possible scoring by round systems, if you read further down the page we explain which system we think works best. The image below links to our Fillable March Madness Bracket which allows you to completely customize your bracket before printing. This includes filling in the points per round, giving your bracket a title, and typing in any notes/rules you want the participants of your pool to know.
If you’re looking for brand ambassadors to get some buzz for your business – Tigris is here to help!

Canadian Tire Brand Awareness Activation at the National Figure Skating Championships
Canadian Tire has been steadily building brand awareness with consumers with an impressive event marketing strategy – and Tigris Personnel has been happy to help! We began working with the iconic national retail chain in early 2012 and have supported a diverse range of events from Nascar races and PartSource promotions in Ontario, BC & Saskatchewan as well as SportChek events in association with the NHL.
As a title sponsor for the National Figure Skating Championships, Canadian Tire had an exclusive opportunity to build brand awareness by engaging fans in a multitude of ways including the popular money machine, “worlds” contest entry and an autograph signing with participating athletes. In exchange for their time, the fans had the chance to receive flavoured lip balm, hand warmers (perfect for watching the skaters!) and of course, Canadian Tire coupons.
Contributing to Canadian Tire’s Brand Awareness with Strategic Event Marketing Opportunities
In order to execute this event, Canadian Tire secured a team of 5 events staff including an onsite event manager, from Tigris Personnel, to coordinate the games and ensure a smooth execution. There were more than 12,000 interactions over 3 days and 25,000 items given away. What an amazing brand awareness opportunity for Canadian Tire!
This is Canadian Tire’s first year teaming up with Skate Canada as a title sponsor of the National Figure Skating Championships in Toronto. While our events staff were only onsite for the tail end of the competition, the brand awareness program ran from Jan. 13-20, 2013. Canadian Tire as a company is a huge supporter of children and sports, perhaps best known for funding Jump Start for underprivileged kids – so all of the money raised goes directly to the cause.
