March Madness

Harness the Madness of March

MarchMadness Ah, the smells of spring are in the air: hardwood courts, rubber balls, pitchers of beer and paper brackets. That’s right, sports fans – March Madness is in full swing! After the field was revealed during Selection Sunday on March 17, teams have been battling for a shot to be crowned season champs.

Demand for NCAA basketball items on eBay started climbing in late February, and should remain above the rim past the final buzzer on April 8. While your site’s visitors have basketball on the brain, you can remind them that eBay has a deep bench of game day essentials.

Don’t Miss Any Action

Can't skip out on work or other obligations but still want to stay in the hoop loop? Stock up on the gadgets that make mobile fandom a breeze. Tablets and smartphones are the key players here, supported by headphones or portable speakers to fit your environment. Adding a branded case lets everyone know which team gets your support.

Dress For Success 

No need to stop at electronics accessories; head-to-toe licensed apparel is the only way to ensure a win for your team. Piece the look together with warm-up pants, t-shirts, jerseys and hats, or check out a onesie for easier dressing (okay, maybe leave that to the kids). Just don’t forget your foam finger.

Host a Game Watch

Of course, the most crucial item for a fan is a television and home audio setup suitable for watching all the action. From more compact models to those large enough to make you feel like you’re sitting courtside, eBay is the spot for TVs. And no sports viewing experience is complete without friends, food and beverages, so make sure to serve in style with team-themed dishes and glasses.

eBay is also offering promotions to drum up interest with buyers who will be watching the Big Dance from home, with deals on TVs, electronics accessories and audio equipment. Visit Electronics to view the deals you can share with your visitors.

Happy promoting and may the best team win!
