Turf Tank works with schools who need revenue for artificial turf installation, maintenance or other sports facility needs. Turf Tank manages the process of securing business sponsors for on-field advertisements, and then oversees the process of making those revenue streams become a reality.
Turf Tank’s creative consulting service offers potential advertisers real estate on the field, called “legacy logos” – typically on the sideline outside of the designated area for coaches and players (inside the 30-yard-lines).
Turf Tank project managers will be hired to spend up to six weeks securing revenue on behalf of the school in the local community, with the goal of raising needed funds and offsetting the long-term maintenance or replacement costs. Turf Tank charges an engagement fee, expenses and an agreed-upon percentage of total dollars raised through their services. Additionally, Turf Tank offers schools with natural grass an integrated, self-guided program to sell on-field advertising. In those instances, a project manager may or may not need to be on-site. Turf Tank will coordinate the design and installation of legacy logos for either synthetic turf or natural grass fields with each school.
“We work with schools to identify the best community relationships and top prospects for advertisers,” said Turf Tank founder Jason Aldridge.
Aldridge and his staff can offer their services anywhere nationwide. A project manager is assigned to each school looking to generate $350,000 or more for their project. Turf Tank does not represent a specific turf company; each school is free to make the best decision as to which supplier to use. Turf Tank does offer additional consulting services, such as overall project ownership, if input is requested.
Turf Tank negotiates long-term agreements with sponsors, showing them a tremendous ROI so that schools have renewable income over the life of the playing surface.
