In this video, learn more about how Sportspick does all that heavy lifting for you; Sportspick Super Tipper is included when you order Sportspick GameZone. Sportspick GameZone is our end to end sports bar marketing tool which is designed to attract more sports fans into your venue, and to keep them coming back on a regular basis.

Case Study: Sportspick Super Tipper at Nerang RSL & Memorial Club

January 22, 2019
With the start of footy season fast approaching pubs and clubs around Australia will no doubt be considering their footy tipping competition offerings. One of the decisions many venues will face is whether to invest in an automated tipping solution or deal with a time consuming manually run tipping comp. Senior Sports Bar Steward at the Nerang RSL and MemoriaL Club, Sharni Mott, has found Sportpsick’s Super Tipper comp to be a  “lifesaver.” The automated comp has taken away most of the manual work that would otherwise be required to run a traditional tipping competition. “If we weren’t using Sportspick I would have to have a whole day of work dedicated to keeping it all up to date,” said Sharni. “We’ve had Sportspick going on eight years, we used to do it all manually and Sportspick is far easier.” FIND OUT MORE ABOUT SPORTSPICK GAMEZONE HERE Sportpsick is fully automated so venues simply need to set an entry fee and decide on how the cash is allocated to winners. New players receive a Sportspick members card and enter their details on the automoted tipping terminal. All scores and leaderboards are fully automated, meaning there is very little required from venues and no more scoring disputes! By promoting their Sportspick offering to new and potential patrons Sharni has noticed a positive effect on visitation. “It’s definitely bringing people in more often,” she said, referring to the venues NRL tipping comps, which in 2018 had 95 participants. These members are onsite each week to participate in Sportspick’s NRL Super Tipper comp. Asked if most players stuck around for a few drinks after coming in to place tips Sharni replied, “they certainly do. It adds atmosphere to the venue having those people participating.” “We advertise a lot through social media, text message and email,” said Sharni. On top of the local venue prizes players are also competing for a share of $200,000 in cash and prizes offered by Sportspick in national comps. With the season approaching Sharni and other Sports Bar staff around Australia will be launching their tipping comps with a minimum of fuss thanks to Sportspick’s fully automated Super Tipper comps. “I would certainly recommend it to other venues,” said Sharni. “it’s been a lifesaver for us.”

Case Study: Sports Stakes at C.ex Servicemens Woolgoolga

December 13, 2018
Friday night footy is a proven performer for Sports Bars at pubs and clubs around Australia. There’s no surer way to fill your bar full of patrons keen for a beer and a chat while enjoying the live broadcast. With this in mind the Sportspick team designed Sports Stakes to capitalise on the unique opportunity that Friday nights AFL and NRL games offer, as well as a new Big Bash League comp for your cricket fans. We recently caught up with John Clarke from Coffs Ex Servicemens Club Woolgoolga to discuss what Sports Stakes has done to boost venue atmosphere during the broadcast while increasing visitation and spend. Coffs Ex Servicemens Club began utilising the Sports Stakes component of their Sportspick tipping system approximately four years ago. Sports Stakes players are given a code when they purchase a nominated product at the bar. They use this code at the Sportspick terminal where they will receive a Sports Stakes entry ticket for the evening’s game. (See more on how Sports Stakes works below.) John and the team at the Club were surprised at how eagerly players took to the promotion, “mate, if they don’t get a ticket they scream,” he said. The real strength of Sports Stakes is the clear return on investment, with players needing to make a bar purchase to receive a code. “We give them a ticket for every Tooheys product they purchase,” said John. During this year’s Preliminary Final between Melbourne and Cronulla the venue had 337 entries and John believes many of these purchases can be attributed to Sports Stakes. “We have players come across from the other clubs on Friday. They come to play Sports Stakes, it’s a good thing we’ve got going,” he said. CHECK OUT THE SPORTSPICK GAME ZONE While Sports Stakes is a proven factor in boosting bar trade, it also adds an element of fun to the Friday night broadcast. “It really adds to the atmosphere,” says John, “we’re a country town full of rugby people. They really enjoy it, and they’re back in the following day to collect if they have won a prize.” John also believes dwell time is increased due to patrons interest in the results of the Sports Stakes comp: “Ninety per cent are sticking around (longer to watch the broadcast while entered into the Sports Stakes comp). It’s a pretty good winner for us.” Like to learn more? Get in touch using the form below and we’ll arrange for a visit!
