A strong marketing and communication plan provides IACR the opportunity to engage alumni, parents, staff, students, and friends of Javelina athletics. The ADDA will collaborate with the ICAR and OASG to execute the marketing and communication strategies. The communication and marketing pieces will focus on general mass communication and affinity driven alumni-athlete communication.
The communication strategies will include:
• Digital communication (email, web, and social media)
• Print communication
• Phone communication
• Face-to-face meetings
The IACR and OASG have made investments into SIDEARM Sports and NetCommunity to track and monitor the departments marketing and communication strategies. The ADDA will utilize the best resources provided by IACR and OASG to develop a comprehensive communication and marketing strategy that maximizes the departments’ resources.
