A look into the NBA Playoffs featuring Slate

NBA playoffs are in full swing and we have seen some great social content throughout the first few rounds. Slate customers have been taking their social content to the next level and making their presence pop across social platforms. Read below for a few trends that have been impactful this postseason, then go give each of these teams a follow to see more: 

Featuring Players

The Nuggets & the Nets have showcased their athletes through dedicated assets, from signature graphics to filters. Not only does this content amplify the team’s brand but creates more shareable aspects for their players’ personal channels. For other ways Slate customers have highlighted their athletes, check out this article!

Taking advantage of the Twitter Crop

Twitter recently implemented a new crop size for media shared in-feed and teams are taking advantage of the additional space to be creative. Throughout the playoffs, we’ve seen the Bucks and Clippers use Slate to share arrival and in-game content in the new dimension.

Supporting Sponsorships

With the effects of COVID on full display this season, teams looked for novel opportunities to include sponsors. Although COVID restrictions have loosened since the beginning of the season, including sponsors in social content is here to stay, made evident by teams like the Mavericks and Nets producing sponsored playoff content.
