This is how you get a good start for your Sports Club in TeamUp.

(To see other guides, click here)

Bring your Sports Club to TeamUp by creating its own FanPage. Examples: Michael Waltrip RacingOlympic Team Finland

Ask your players to create their own FanPage, so that you can link the whole team together with the group functionality. See the demo video of TeamUp’s capabilities.

Start making updates regularly and share them to other social networks. The very first thing to do is to link your FanPage with your Facebook Page and Twitter account. After that it’s easy to automatically share your updates to Facebook and Twitter. The shared updates include a link back to your update in TeamUp, so your followers can easily find your FanPage.

You can also link your Instagram account to your TeamUp FanPage. That allows you to automatically share your Instagram posts to TeamUp.

After connecting to Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram, your profile will show your total social media popularity number.

Let everybody know that your team has joined TeamUp.  Add the TeamUp-logo and widget to your web pages. Tell about TeamUp in your game schedules.

Explain all of the people in your inner circle why you have joined TeamUp and what are the benefits for being in the community (best way to be in touch with your fans and an ultimate way to create value for your sponsors). Invite them to become your fan in TeamUp.

 Invite your existing fans to join TeamUp and explain to them why. It’s very important for people to understand why you’ve entered a new platform, if you want them to follow you there. Here’s an example of something you can post in your existing social channels and blogs etc.:

Hi fans, thank you so much for following us in Facebook! We want to invite you to join us in TeamUp, our new Fansite. We have found that TeamUp will give us a much better place to be in touch with you. You will get all of our updates and we can message you with important information. Stay tuned also for exclusive content.

We really liked that it is also an ad-free community which won’t sell your private information. We think you will love the fan ranking too! We can reward our top fans together with our sponsors. Join us in TeamUp for the fun and let’s see who will be our top fan this month. The top fans will get all kinds of surprises and rewards from us.

You can make a fan competition and use our fan ranking capability in deciding which ones to reward. Fans will earn fan points e.g. by sharing your profile and bringing in more fans for you.

 Invite your existing sponsors / partners to TeamUp. When they come to TeamUp it’s very easy for you let the others know about your partnership, and with your team and its player’s FanPages you can create a whole new value for your sponsors e.g. via linking the profiles, automatic content visibility, partnership announcements, “promo-corner”-feature, and automatic team invitations.

Your sponsors can join and create their free business profile, or order some of the paid level subscriptions which unlock all of the tools for fully activating their sponsorships. 

 Link your sponsor’s profile to your team’s FanPage. Linking means that your latest update will be shown in your sponsor’s profile, and vice versa. Your sponsor’s logo (i.e. their profile picture) will be shown in your FanPage, and your teams picture will be shown in your sponsor’s profile.

You can make the linking by initiating a partnership with them on TeamUp. Just go to their profile and select “Initiate a partnership” from the dropdown menu next to their profile name.

You have the full power in TeamUp: you decide which sponsors to link with, and with what terms.
