IRVINE, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–
Sports 1 Marketing Corp, a company founded by H. Warren Moon and David C. Meltzer, announced today that it will be hosting “Sports 1 Marketing Virtual Gift Bags” utilizing its Aggregated Marketing Platform Inc. (AMP℠) with Elite Events and Tournaments for the next five years. AMP℠ will be the platform offered to a minimum of 5,700 golf events and tournaments per year featuring virtual gifting, sweepstakes, and opportunities to donate to local and national non-profits.
AMP℠ aggregates virtual gifting programs with traditional media such as TV, radio, print, and on-site advertising using patent-pending software. AMP℠ creates efficiencies for golf tournament operators by eliminating significant overhead costs that are typically associated with shipping, storing, and recycling gifts offered at traditional events.
“Implementing Virtual Gifting into our portfolio of golf tournament services complements our current services we provide that focus on adding value to tournament player experiences and creates real value for sponsors that previously did not exist,” said Jay McNabney, CEO of Elite Events and Tournaments.
AMP℠ addresses several problems that are frequently associated with gifting occasions for patrons and fans. AMP℠ allows event attendees to individually select which gifts they actually want and do not have to worry about carrying items all day, risk losing or misplacing gifts, and can also choose to donate to a charitable partner of the event.
“Working with companies such as Elite Events is the perfect opportunity for AMP’s℠ business model,” said David Meltzer, CEO of Sports 1 Marketing Corp. “This partnership allows us to showcase how robust this platform is and creates a new marketplace for sponsors and events while enhancing the experience for attendees.”
Unlike traditional media and marketing, companies who sponsor golf tournaments and events (whose gifts or products are in the virtual gift bags) are now able to see a direct ROI of who is engaged in their gifts, or products, by collecting data through AMP. The data serves as a catalyst for sponsors to market directly to consumers who are interested in their product.
Sports 1 Marketing Corp has already announced partnerships with several sporting teams, events, and venues including the Barclays Center, Brooklyn Nets, New York Islanders, Anaheim Angels, OC Blues, The ESPYs, and others.
AMP℠’s charitable component within the platform encourages users to “Pay it Forward” by donating to the event-specific charity utilizing Processing for a Cause Inc. (PFAC℠).
AMP℠ and PFAC℠ were both launched by Sports 1 Marketing in January of 2016. As previously announced, AMP℠ and PFAC℠ plan to “go public” pursuant to a letter of intent signed with Acquired Sales Corp. (OTC Pink: AQSP).
