In today’s sports landscape, success requires not only scoring goals on the field but also employing smart strategies off the field. For amateur clubs like KEWS Schoonbeek-Beverst, playing in Belgium’s 5th division, increasing engagement with the first team while building a thriving youth division is crucial. With a youth academy comprising 210 players, KEWS recognized the need to enhance their online presence. They partnered with us to create a more professional and engaging image, aiming to attract more support for both the first team and the youth programs.

Our strategy began with an in-depth competitor analysis to understand what worked well for other clubs and identify common pitfalls. By benchmarking Schoonbeek-Beverst against its competitors and continuously monitoring analytics, we pinpointed areas for improvement and differentiation. This data-driven approach allowed us to adopt best practices and implement targeted marketing actions tailored to the club’s specific goals. Establishing a strong, consistent brand was essential. We crafted a branding strategy that reflected Schoonbeek-Beverst’s unique identity and made the club stand out on social media. This involved selecting visual elements, tone of voice, and content themes that together formed a recognizable and attractive brand image.

Creating engaging content was at the heart of our strategy. We focused on producing high-quality, relevant content that resonated with the club’s supporters and potential new members. Regular updates, behind-the-scenes glimpses, player profiles, and interactive posts fostered a sense of connection and excitement. To boost youth registrations, we designed specific campaigns targeting young athletes and their parents, highlighting the benefits of joining Schoonbeek-Beverst’s youth division. Success stories and testimonials from current youth members effectively communicated the value of being part of the club.
