We looked last week at the Pirates online shirt toss, where they asked fans to reply for the chance to win a shirt in a virtual shirt toss. (Pirates’ Viral Shirt Toss). They had about 1500 fans replay.
Today we look at a MILB team who did the same thing, noting how promotions are always to scale.
The Richmond Flying Squirrels did a similar promotion.

Interesting numbers that are pretty similar as far as response rates. Pirates had around 1500 replies with 750,000 followers (a little under .2%) and the Squirrels had 68 replies from their 43,000 follows (.16%).
Of course measuring your success isn’t always apples to apples, but some simple math will help you see how your promotions and engagement are stacking up.
