Tebow Time for Jockey

When Kenosha-based underwear brand Jockey signed Tim Tebow to be a brand representative, the act was seen as curious and risky.

The controversial Denver Broncos quarterback came loaded with potential … and a seemingly equal number of fans and critics.

Regardless, he was a magnet for attention and Jockey capitalized on that as one of his earliest sponsors. Through a lackluster benchwarming rookie season and half of the next, Jockey stood by its man, successfully using him to launch an innovative new collection’s campaign.

Suddenly everything changed as Tebow was named his team’s starting QB, and through some rather miraculous and thrilling late-game comebacks, began to win hearts and minds across the country and beyond.

As it appeared Tebow might, against all odds, lead his beleaguered Broncos to the Playoffs, Jockey quickly devised a plan led by PR and social media to leverage the opportunity, a plan that netted 600 million impressions in just four weeks.

Join us on Feb. 22 to learn how Jockey did it, and how you can apply tactics and lessons learned from the program to enhance your own PR and social media program. You’ll also hear about how Milwaukee agency Hanson Dodge Creative used social media & PR to promote client Wilson’s footballs.
