When the Indianapolis Colts kick off their season opener with the Oakland Raiders at Lucas Oil Stadium, the stands will be full of business contacts as promising as the up-and-coming team on the field. Indianapolis companies big and small have long leveraged the power of NFL tickets to help their business and the Colts are providing online tools and a mobile app to help.
“The Colts are always looking for new ways to add value for our customers and Spotlight has been one of those tools for the past three seasons,” said Greg Hylton, Vice President Premium Seating & Ticket Sales for the Indianapolis Colts. “Spotlight is an added benefit that our customers can use to track the ROI on their suites and share best practices with other suite holders. A number of our customers use Spotlight successfully”
Colts customers, including Huntington Bank, Comcast, Indiana University Health and Key Bank, have all adopted Spotlight’s online tools and apps for their tickets nationally. “As a financial institution, it is of utmost importance for us to track ticket usage for compliance and return on investment purposes,” said Mike Lindley, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Huntington Bank. “Spotlight has automated our process, given us a simple centralized system, and has allowed us to maintain compliance and track results.”
With over 7 million tickets under management from some of the most recognizable global companies, Spotlight sees first-hand the business impact of NFL tickets. “The numbers are terrific when it comes to NFL tickets,” said Tony Knopp, CEO and Co-Founder of Spotlight Ticket Management. “We have companies seeing more than $20 million in potential revenue in a single suite for one game. When used correctly, NFL tickets, especially Colts tickets, are terrific for business.”
The Colts join over 60 pro teams partnering with Spotlight, including over a dozen NFL teams. “Our goal is to get NFL tickets on the mobile devices of every business person,” said Knopp, “whether on the road, networking, or in a meeting. Spotlight mobile users can access tickets on the spot to invite prospects or customers.”
Spotlight gives Colts customers an online ticket management application, the ability to integrate tickets within Salesforce.com, and a mobile app to manage and distribute tickets. Throughout the season, Spotlight is providing Colts customers with educational video clips, case studies, and whitepapers prepared by top lawyers, accountants, and sports marketers with popular themes such as “How To Pass An Audit In 90 Seconds,” “Avoiding The Legal Pitfalls Of Sports & Entertainment Marketing,” and “Making Your Sports Marketing Pay Off.”
