The University of Tulsa athletic department announces the launch of a new social media fan engagement program where Tulsa fans can show their support for the Golden Hurricane and each individual team through a combination of in-game social media campaigns, engaging teams on social networks and earning rewards through the new Tulsa Golden Rewards program.
Developed in partnership with Lodestone Sports, fans receive points for participating in social media activities such as ‘liking’ Facebook posts, commenting, sharing, tweeting hashtags, re-tweeting, watching a YouTube video, checking in on Foursquare or Facebook, scanning student cards or posting photos and taking in-game polls with Social Stadium Twitter promotions.
Fans can also gain points by taking polls, signing up for promotions, printing coupons and more on Tulsa Team Facebook Pages.
The program tracks overall point leaders, Hurricane leaders and individual team leaders from Football to golf. In addition, fans can sign up for special promotions, coupons or become the Fan of the Week on team Facebook pages. This will allow Tulsa to create a unique experience and promotion for each team, drive awareness and reward their super fans.
There will be grand prizes, giveaways and special fan experiences that Hurricane supporters can earn through their social media activity.
