The initial launch of #whereitsAT last October was a huge hit with a series of video promos, driven largely by The Rallying Call, reaching millions of golf fans around the world. Apart from the Asian Tour’s social and digital platforms which include YouTube, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook and Weibo, the bite-sized monologues will also be broadcast by many of the Tour’s global television broadcasters as well as Bloomberg TV, which is one of the official international media partners of the Asian Tour.
Asian Tour CEO Josh Burack said: “Last year’s launch of #whereitsAT was a resounding success. We are very confident phase two of this campaign will be as popular and engaging with our fans. “The Asian Tour is the birthplace for many of our players as this is where they cut their professional teeth and made their mark. We want to convey this message through our monologue video promos and use our heroes to highlight the growing prominence of the Asian Tour in world golf.
“We will also launch a competition on social media for our fans to reward the winner with a trip to one of our events on the Asian Tour as part of our efforts to recognize the support of our fans.” The latest campaign will continue to reiterate the Asian Tour’s acronym, ‘AT’ to the audience as it continues to position the Tour’s brand in an engaging and captivating manner. India’s Jeev Milkha Singh believes more fans will identify with the Asian Tour through this latest campaign.
“I had a good time during the filming of the monologue video promo. It brought back great memories as I recalled how I first started out on the Asian Tour and the success I’ve enjoyed over the years. “More importantly, I hope my story will inspire and tell everyone that the Asian Tour is the place to be and that’s where the future and the action is,” said Singh, who is a two-time Asian Tour number one and a six-time winner.
