June Perspectives Boost Attendance And Reward Your Fans

Boost Attendance and Reward Your Fans!
PrestoMobile Rewards

Looking for a way to boost attendance at your school’s sporting events? Look no further than PrestoMobile Rewards! Our innovative system offers a unique fan engagement tool that incentivizes students and fans to attend games and tournaments. By creating a points structure, you can encourage attendance at traditionally less attended events, as well as special events like playoffs. Plus, our system allows you to assign points based on an event’s popularity, so you can drive attendance to less popular events. And with the ability to set up awards or prizes based on the number of points your fans earn, you’ll have everyone cheering for your team in no time.

So what are you waiting for? Sign up for PrestoMobile Rewards today and start seeing the results you’ve been looking for!

Where In the World Was PrestoSports this month?

PrestoSports has been just about everywhere in the month of June. It was an out-of-the-ballpark experience meeting many of you at NACDA 2023. Seeing people interact with our fan cam on a giant cell phone with our PrestoMobile app was awesome! It was a home run with all that stopped by the booth. Proving you can make the fan experience great during the summer, fall, or any other season!
