Chicago Cubs social media strategy articulated on social media night

cubs-social-media-night

On Wednesday May 16th the Chicago Cubs hosted their inaugural Social Media Night. Fans who purchased tickets were invited to a pregame social media panel at Wrigley Field’s Captain Morgan Club. And by social media, we obviously mean the discussion was Twitter heavy.

The panel consisted of Chicago Bears kicker Robbie Gould (@RobbieGould09), (more on his night here) Cubs.com writer Carrie Muskat (@CarrieMuskat) and Cubs Public Relations and Marketing Specialist Kevin Saghy (@Cubs).

Each person was given a swag bag that included a Cubs “social media” t-shirt, a copy of Vine Line magazine, a teeny foam finger, a voucher for a hot dog and a multi-card set of Cubs “Social Media Series” baseball cards featuring Cub players that are on Twitter.

Chicago Bears placekicker Robbie Gould is one of the more interesting and articulate athletes out there. When his days draining field goals are over, he has a bright future in broadcasting. Wednesday night, when the Chicago Cubs hosted the Philadelphia Phillies, Gould was part of a three person social media panel.

He cracked jokes, dropped one-liners and made an announcement that if when he gets about 500 more Twitter followers, he’ll take his fans/followers out to dinner with him at Public House. He currently has 45, 508 (@RobbieGould09), when he hits 46,000 he’ll treat for food.

Gould also threw out the first ball and sang the seventh inning stretch at Wrigley Field during the Cubs 9-2 loss.
