interested in a career in sports or entertainment marketing

Blog topic: Do you think you would be interested in a career in either sports or entertainment marketing? If not, is there another sports or entertainment career that interests you? 

There are a few career choices that I would be interested in like advertising but other than that no.

steven tyler

Daily blog: Read the article attached to this post. What do you think about a hard rock singer opening in Nashville? Nashville is considered to be the center of country music. Do you think the Nashville Film Festival is focused on country music or all genres? Do you think Tyler would have been selected if he was still only doing rock? Watch the movie trailer if time permits  

I absolutely love Steven Tyler and I think it is awesome that he is opening in nashville. His new album has changed in genre from rock to country but i think it is amazing. I think that the Nashville film festival is focused on country music but steven tyler is not known for his country music. This is a way to show that he is testing out the water in a new genre and it can give him and the festival more publicity. It is focusing on a larger target market now since there is a singer with a different tone. I do not think he would have been selected if he was still doing only rock.

vacation for summer

Daily blog: You are packing for a vacation this summer. Describe where you are going, what types of activities you will be doing, and what clothes you will take. Be specific on the exact type and amount. (This can be an imaginary vacation.) 

I am going to the beach for 7 days and 6 nights. We will be swimming a lot so i will bring 3-4 bathing suits. We will also be going out to eat a few nights so I will need to pack at least 3 dressy outfits to wear and dressy shoes. I will also need a few pairs of shorts and t shirts to sleep in and just for casual wear. I will bring tennis shoes because there is a place at the beach that you can go climbing and zip lining.

Ticket prices

Daily blog: In recent years the prices charged for tickets have skyrocketed:
Major college football games, such as Alabama vs Texas A&M, can cost $770 each.
New York Yankee fans can pay as much as $500 per seat.
Tickets to see singer Taylor Swift in concert range from $258 to $1358 apiece.
Why do you think tickets for concerts and sporting events cost so much?

I think that tickets cost this much because it takes a lot of money to put on these shows and for everyone to get paid and make revenue then the prices have to be more expensive. The more you pay the better the show you will receive.

"talent shows"

Daily blog: Reality "talent shows" have become a huge part of the entertainment industry. Christina Aguilera has announced that she is quitting "The Voice" for good. She said, "It became something that I didn't feel was what I had signed up for in Season 1. You realize it's not about music. It's about making good TV moments and massaging a story."
Do you agree with her assessment of "The Voice" and other talent shows?

I do not agree with Christina Aguilera because I have watched "The Voice" for a couple years now and I really enjoy it. The singers get a lot of teaching and they better themselves with each performance. I believe that they need to put on a show to get the views but they do it with their personalities and it's not something that is forced.

Hulu, NHL, TNT

Daily blog post: "Two days after inking a partnership with the NHL to stream the Stanley Cup Playoffs, Hulu announced Friday a marketing push that will feature its logo splashed across TNT’s broadcast of the NBA Playoffs.
Hulu’s ad spots will begin airing this Sunday and will last through TNT’s First Round, Conference Semifinals and Western Conference Finals coverage of the NBA Playoffs, during which Hulu will serve as TNT’s presenting sponsor.
As part of the deal with Turner Sports, Hulu will produce exclusive branded content featuring NBA on TNT’s on-air talent, who will highlight the breadth of Hulu’s live TV service."
Question - How does Hulu benefit from this arrangement? How does the NHL benefit? How does TNT benefit?

Hulu, NHL, and TNT all get advertising.

Worst/Least effective promotion

Blog: Look at the promotions featured in the article linked below. Which promotion do you think is the worst/least effective? Why? 

The promotion that was least effective would be the brittany spears one because she was an advocate for being a good parent but then was caught driving with her daughter on her lap which is not safe and illegal. She went back on everything she was trying to tell people to do. The Newark Bears made fun of the incident and many people got into the game free.
