imATHLETE Partners with BibRave, Brings Free Marketing Resource to Events
SANTA MONICA, Calif., (October 5, 2016) – imATHLETE (imATHLETE.com), a leading online registration company that is changing the way event organizers interact with their participants, is now bringing grassroots marketing services to its clients via BibRave, the industry-leading social media, blog, and influencer marketing provider.
And the best part? imATHLETE clients pay nothing for the service. Zero. Nada. Nil. It’s free to them.
Portland, Oregon-based BibRave has a proven history of driving more awareness and registrations for events like the Honolulu Marathon, Buffalo Marathon, and Vermont City Marathon. Leveraging their extensive national network of running ambassadors, BibRave helps events reach more runners via peer-to-peer and word-of-mouth promotion.
When asked for comment, Jeff Matlow, imATHLETE’s CEO said, “Last year, the number of races in the U.S. increased by 8%, while the number of finishers decreased by 9%. We are committed to helping our clients continue to grow their businesses in an increasingly fragmented market. By providing BibRave services, we’re offering yet another valuable tool to help minimize the workload and maximize the revenue for event organizers."
"imATHLETE has a great reputation for innovation and client service, as is evident through their work with the Los Angeles Marathon, Detroit Marathon, Cap City Half and all the other big-name events they work with,” said Tim Murphy, co-founder of BibRave. “We're thrilled to partner with such a strong team to make these great events even better!"
