Obsesh for athletes
Professional soccer player books several experiences thanks to social media engagement, and using the new promo code feature on obsesh
Kotaro Umeda was receiving tons of feedback from his friends, family, and fans when he announced he was working with Obsesh for the Kickin’ it with Kota and United Way of Greater Cleveland campaign. He got a lot of the “clapping hands” reaction on his Instagram story, but noticed that he wasn’t translating those reactions into experiences booked on Obsesh. So, he investigated.
“I messaged everyone who reacted to my story, and it turns out that a lot of people didn’t understand that the campaign was still happening. Once I explained to them that it was still happening, they were eager to help and contribute to the campaign!”
Once Kotaro went and explained the process of what was happening, and how to book an experience on Obsesh, his bookings began to soar. Explaining and reaching out to interested parties led to Kotaro booking six experiences in one week.
Helping Kotaro reach that number of bookings was the fact that he employed the new promotional code feature that’s on the Obsesh marketplace. Athletes now have the ability to set a custom discount code for their fans to use when booking an experience with them. These codes can be limited to any amount of uses by fans, and set to any discounted percentage. Do you want your first five experiences booked to be at a 100% discount? It’s possible for you to do with the new feature!
Kotaro utilized an easy sequence for his promotion code: his Instagram handle. He was able to book several experiences using the promotion code, and found the process easy to do.
Kotaro achieved his success by being proactive with people who interacted with him, and engaged with them to get them to book experiences with him. He also took advantage of the new promotional code feature on the marketplace, utilizing his Instagram handle as an easy code.
