What is SportsWatcherss?

 

What is SportsWatcherss? What’s the purpose of it?Well, let me give you a quick explanation of what SportsWatcherss is. SportsWatcherss is online marketplace that allows users to buy and sell sports items. The main categories on our site is: sports art, sports clothing, and sports equipment/technology. Based in Miami, FL, SportsWatcherss is built very similar to the likes of eBay or Amazon.

 

SportsWatcherss was created to accomplish a number of things: 1) create a platform that consumers can find a collection of sports items that they would not find anywhere else. 2) Create a platform that independent sports vendors to have a website to sell their special items on. 3) To improve the way users shop online with mobile devices.

  1. Creating a platform that consumers can find a collection of sports items that they would not find anywhere else.

SportsWatcherss provides consumers with a collection of items that was made to provide users stuff they would not have seen. We have things from art of legendary athletes such as Ken Griffey Jr and Emmitt Smith, all the way to products to keep your head cool. As a company our goal is to be the first place people think about when they are looking for special sports items. Wether it be for birthdays, anniversaries, or just adding to their lives, every item that our vendors sell is intended to benefit the lives of our customers.

2. Create a platform that independent sports vendors to have a website to sell their special items on.

We want our vendors to be successful on site. In addition to selling on our site, we market the items through our social media channels. We push these items offline as well. We understand that starting an independent small business is not easy, so we do what we can to help our vendors to become successful on our platform.

3. To improve the way users shop online with mobile devices.

With our platform, our next step it is add an augmented reality application to go along with the marketplace. We want our customers to get a better view and feel of the items on our site. For example, we want to have a 3D their desired art, or desired yoga pants. Giving our users this experience will only add value for the customers interested in buying products.

 

Here at SportsWatcherss, we want to be as helpful to the online sports community as we can.

Pizza Hut New NFL Sponsor

 

After a long relationship with Papa Johns, Pizza Hut has become the official pizza sponsor for the NFL. This deal was made less than 24 hours after the NFL decided to cut off their deal with Papa Johns. With that being said, Papa Johns says that “it’s shifting it’s market to focus on 22 of the league’s 32 teams on a team-by-team basis.” (via NY Post) In what was supposed to be an 11-year contract, the NFL cut the contract after Papa John’s ex CEO John Schnatter’s comments about the protest that occurred last year.

Where to add your Sports Product

When starting out any business, it’s hard to know exactly which channels are best to sell  your product on. Thanks to the Internet, there are tons of options. But which ones are right for you? Let’s take a good look at a few different ideas:

Your Own Website

The most popular option and the most thought of option would be to create your own website. There are alot of good things that come with making your own website. You have control of everything from the look of it, to the prices of all of your items, even shipping fees. In addition, most other places that you can sell on additional fees that you won’t have to pay on your website. The tough part about owning your own website? Marketing. Marketing your own website is very difficult in the beginning. Outside of family and friends, potential customers may not be aware of your website. The challenge becomes how to get in front of customers who would have interest in purchasing your product. This is where most startup websites fail.

Social Media

In today’s world, it’s easier than ever to sell on social media. Facebook has their own marketplace, and Instagram now has the option to sell on their site. This is beneficial if you already have a strong following on one of these platforms. You can easily let them know that you are selling something, and that will garner initial interest. The downside of selling on these platforms? Having the right interest on these sites. While you may have initial success with a strong following on social media, in order to grow, your product  has to get into the right view of people that are interested. While this may be better to do on platforms such as Instagram, it’s still a difficult task.

Major Marketplaces

Selling on a marketplace has become increasingly common as well. There is good reason why this is the case. Selling on marketplaces are easier than ever. They don’t take very long to do, and they are relatively easy to manage. You simply upload your products, and when someone makes an order, you get notified and paid once the order is complete. In addition, when you sell your products on large marketplaces, people tend to trust it more because they are familiar with some of the marketplaces already. The only major concern with large marketplaces is the fact that they host so many items that it might be difficult to stand out. You are not only competition for the attention against products within your industry, but also products outside of your industry.

Niche Marketplaces

With the number of marketplaces increasing, it’s becoming easier for people to find marketplaces that cater to particular industries. This helps sellers because buyers on that marketplace are already potential customers, as they go to that website looking for similar things that you would sell. Whether you are just starting up, or you’re looking for another channel to sell your products on, niche marketplaces are ideal to consider. Here at SportsWatcherss, we offer the benefit of bringing in an ideal target market for sellers because users on our site are looking for sports products.

3 Reasons why you should start a Sports Business

Wouldn’t it be awesome to do something you love and get paid for  it? Well , with a little bit of innovation and thought, it can be done. People do it everyday. There are CEO’s making millions doing something that they love (or simply makes money). There are also smaller businesses are waking up everyday excited because they are doing something they enjoy. If there are people doing it everyday, then there is room for more.
Here are the three reasons you should start a sports business:
1) You know what it takes to be successful
When I say “you know what it takes”, I’m not necessarily talking about the knowledge of how to run a business. What I’m saying is that you understand that it takes things such as hard work and dedication to be successful in something. Let’s compare it to a season of your favorite sport. Throughout the season, there’s always  a series of ups and downs. Sometimes everything goes right, and other times, everything goes wrong, even to the point where giving up may be a thought. However, we know that in order to be a champion, you have to endure the tough times. Just like sports , business is filled with ups and downs. Some beginning a business with little to no knowledge, and others enter with a wealth of knowledge and resources. Whichever the case may be, it can be achieved.
2) Even when you feel like giving up, you won’t without a fight
In 2016, we saw both the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Chicago Cubs overcome 3-1 deficits to become champions. I’m sure at times, a lingering thought of defeat was amongst them. However , these teams were able to overcome that and go on to win. When starting a sports business, there will be times in which you may doubt yourself. Will people buy from me? Will people like my idea? Will people pay attention to what I’m trying to do? In the beginning , these answers may seems hard to find. But the key is to keep learning and never give up. If you don’t give up, you’ll be successful. Even if the initial business doesn’t go well, you leave with much more knowledge than you had before you started the business.

3) Something you’ll always love
Doing something you love will feel less like work than doing something you don’t like. Whether it’s coaching, making sports t-shirts, bracelets, or a wearable, doing something in sports or sports related, gives you that extra push to do continue doing something. Its always easier to be creative ,  and passionate about the thrill of sports.
