Fan Vote in Kzoo

Two Days of voting: Today the Kalamazoo Wings take a sweater tally. Yesterday the Firebirds counted the fan votes for their Fan’s Choice Night.


Two days in a row of fan voting (from Michigan hockey teams no less).

Here the Wings ask fans to vote on which Marvel Character the team will skate as for their Marvel night this season.

In the Water Cooler post How Voting Helps More Than The Results, we looked at how engaging fans with votes has the dual benefit of understanding what fans want AND creating a vested interest in the results (an automatic audience for your winning ideas).  Yesterday and today we take note of teams using this technique to engage with fans with a fan vote.

Excellent work by both the Wings and the Firebirds.
