December is here and the holiday rush to buy presents is on. In a related move, I recently posted a one question poll and asked, would you consider purchasing a comprehensive 2010 event schedule with a focus on sports? The overwhelming majority, 66% said, yes, there is an interest in this solution.
Since then, I have been hard at work creating something that would fit everyone’s need. You can visit it here at SportsCalendarPro.com
First, I created a master sports calendar. It has every major sports event in the United States. What did I include? In no particular order, here is a listing of just SOME of the events. The Super Bowl, The 2010 Winter Olympics, the 2010 World Cup, College Bowl Games, The Kentucky Derby, the Indy 500, the men’s and women’s college basketball NCAA tournament and Final Four, sports conferences for sports related events like the IEG Sponsorship Summit and the 2010 World Sports Congress. There are about 100 sports events in all.
As a sports executive and dedicated sports fan, I want and need to know what is happening and when it is happening. It would be nice to find everything in one place for the enter year. I am tired of searching for the Next event. It is also great for planning events. Not a sports fan, but you may be involved in major life events like getting married or you are just planning major events like fundraising dinners? Then this is ideal for you as well. I cannot remember how many times a major golf event or fundraising dinner collided with a major sports event and either a TV was wheeled in an event or continuous updates were given to keep people informed.
Belowis a snap shot of the calendar for two weeks in April. If you click on the image you can see it in a full screen view.
If you want additional details of the event itself, you can click on say The NCAA Frozen Four dates and you will see this
At SportsCalendarPro.com, I created the site where you can view it online via a gmail account and from there, you can easily download this or sync it with Outlook and iphone. I did it and it now runs as event dates on my master calendar.
The second option is to purchase the 2010 Master Calendar. This includes not only al of the sporting events, but also includes the 2010 Entertainment Calendar, the 2010 Technology Calendar and major U.S. holidays. For example, want to know when the 2010 Academy Awards take place or the ESPYs? Maybe you want to visit the Sundance Film Festival, CES in Las Vegas or Macworld? Then, this option is for you.
Last, which you won’t find on the home page but you will find on the ordering page, is the 2010 Custom Calendar. It includes all of the above and allows you to add four (total) sports team schedules to the mix. For example, say you live in New York or the Boston area. You can add the 2010 schedule for the Yankees, Mets, Nicks and Islanders in one place. Hate NY teams but love Boston sports? Then you can choose the Patriots, Red Sox, Bruins and Celtics schedules.
You write a sports related blog? This allows you to preview the event since you know what is coming up.
Okay, it is the first time I have blatently plugged a product in the year I have been writing this sports business blog, but it is my product and I really believe in it.
Please, visit the site, Re-Tweet and Post this onto facebook or Digg for others to see.
Consider purchasing this unique holiday gift for the sports fan or event planner in your life.
