Multimedia Options Available For Fans
MARYVILLE, Mo.-Northwest Missouri State is creating new and innovative ways for you the fans to interact with Bearcat athletics and the best part about it - they're all free!
In addition to the Facebook and Twitter accounts started last spring, Northwest is introducing Bearcat Country, a mobile fan club, which allows you to interact with us during Bearcat athletic events. Mozes allows fans to text comments and send photos to the web site while in attendance at Northwest events. Look for live text-to-screen, pic-to-screen, fan voting and text-to-win options and promotions at upcoming home events. We will also send scores and promotional information directly to your cell phone.
"Bearcat Country gives fans a personal experience and immediate information, two things today's students would prefer and something social media doesn't do nearly as well," said marketing and promotions intern Dan Kiser, who helped establish the club.
"With the advances in cell phone technology, we want to provide our fans the ability to keep pace with the latest trends," added Morris White, Northwest Director of Marketing and Promotions. "Bearcat Country is the next level of interaction at our events."
There are close to 3,000 fans following Bearcat athletics on Facebook. By joining, you'll receive instant announcements and view videos related to our teams and student-athletes. You can leave messages on our wall, post pictures and weigh in on discussions.
There are nearly 600 fans following us on Twitter, the most in the MIAA. Those fans are receiving in-game updates on scores and are the first to learn of new promotions. You'll be informed on new athlete blogs and press releases on all things Northwest.
Look for Northwest videos posted on YouTube. There are currently six online and will be more added in the future. Simply search BearcatSports (no space) on www.youtube.com.
As always, if you should have any questions please don't hesitate to contact the promotions office at 660.562.1581 or e-mail email@example.com.
