Finisher.me is a social network in the Philippines that helps brands connect with runners for exclusive freebies and promotions.
For sports brands, growing competition has made reaching target consumers in a cost-effective way increasingly challenging. Aiming to give brands an alternative to costly event sponsorships and other traditional approaches, Finisher.me is a social network in the Philippines that helps brands connect with runners for exclusive freebies and promotions. Now in beta, Finisher.me is a social networking website for running enthusiasts in the Philippines. Runners get involved simply by signing up with a unique user name and photo, before going on to promote their Finisher.me page online and wearing their user name on race bibs. Finisher.me’s partner brands — including Thermos — then award exclusive bags of freebies to those participants after each race. Using the social network, those brands can also continually promote themselves online between events. Offering brands a highly targeted way to reach and reward target consumers, Finisher.me is ripe for emulation in other sports niches and locales.
