In the sports industry, organization is the name of the game. It becomes difficult, however, to keep track of each and every task associated with running that business. That’s why it is important to have a tool like monday.com that allows team members to do exactly that.
Over 70,000 organizations comprised of more than 350,000 employees throughout business, tech, media, education and more in 76 different countries manage their work with monday.com.
At Front Office Sports, we utilize monday.com every day to help stay on top of our editorial coverage as well as our brand partnerships and everything in-between.
monday.com provides one central work hub where users can create boards for each aspect of the business, create tasks, assign them due dates, and assign them to specific staff members. This hub is also flexible and customizable, so you can keep every member of your team in the loop when things change. Instead of spending the better part of a morning sending half a dozen texts or emails to find out where everything stands with a big project, it just takes one click with Monday.com.
At FOS, we create boards for larger projects as well as our the subsections of the business. Above, you can see a tentative schedule of our shot callers series. This allows each member of the team to understand when their section of a project is expected to be completed and eventually published.
monday.com also sends each team member a daily email letting them know what due dates are approaching, what new projects have been assigned to them, and what updates other members of the team have left on their current projects.
As a sports media company, we owe it to our readers and followers to provide content that is relevant and timely. Something we like to use monday.com for at FOS to help with this is keeping a running list of upcoming major sporting events that we can easily reference. This in turn helps us make better and more time sensitive decisions when it comes to planning our content for the site as well as our social media channels.
The hub can also can also be automated and integrated with leading services like Slack, Outlook, and Dropbox. It’s essentially a one stop shop where you can see where all your organization’s projects stand at a glance.
As a growing brand, we place a great deal of value on our time. It’s nice to have a tool that saves us a great deal of it and allows us to communicate easily as a team. Running a business is a team sport, after all.
