South Carolina is doing something that every program in America should borrow
- by Zach Barnett 4 months ago
It was Pro Day at South Carolina on Wednesday. That means Jadeveon Clowney, ESPN, NFL Network and hundreds of NFL personnel descended upon Columbia and Williams-Brice Stadium. For the Gamecocks, it was a big day, the type of day that won't happen again soon.
Naturally, the South Carolina athletics department wanted to document the events of the day. How they did it is an idea every program in America should copy.
The Gamecocks utilized the services of Exposure.so to create GamecocksOnline.Exposure.so. It's a beautiful page but, best of all, it's a beautiful page that wasn't very hard to create. Big headlines, a few lines of text, and gorgeous photos like this.
The best part, though, is the price. This page cost South Carolina a subscription of just $99 a year or $9 a month. If you've got a coach, staff member or parent with a decent camera and workable knowledge of the Internet within your program - believe me, you all do - you can create something just like this in less than an hour. The applications are endless. Document a spring game or a game weekend and use it for recruiting, for fundraising, for goodwill with parents. Every program in America - FBS to pee wee - can borrow this idea.
I've embedded their tutorial below.
Trust us, this isn't an advertisement. Far from it. They've never given us a dime and, in fact, we'd never even heard of Exposure.so until today. We just want to get the word out about good ideas, and if anyone has a similar service they'd like to share, please let us know and we'll get the word out.
