Take Home the Gold with these Olympic-Themed Content Ideas!

The 2016 Olympic Games begin in Rio on August 5th, but it’s not too early to start planning Olympic-themed content to excite your audience. Through AMP Rewards and AMP Contesting, you can share some of these fun opportunities with your members and take home a gold medal in engagement this summer!



Test the knowledge of your biggest trivia buffs with some Olympic-themed brain busters. From facts about opening and closing ceremony traditions and performers to stats about past winners and competitions, your audience will have fun and might even learn a thing or two!


Polls & Surveys

There are more than 20 sports contested at the Summer Olympics, which means more than 20 engagement opportunities for your audience!  Polls and surveys are a fun way to let your members predict the winning athlete or country for each competition. Create a poll for each category, or even run a survey to find out which sports or athletes are the most popular among your members.



Let your own members take home the gold, silver, and bronze with Olympic-themed contests! Host a UGC (user-generated content) promotion and let your audience share their patriotic pride. Members can submit photos showing off their Team USA spirit and encourage their family and friends to vote for their submission. The picture with the most votes wins! Even secure a sponsorship with a local jewelry store for a ‘Go for the Gold’ sweepstakes, awarding the first, second, and third place winners with gold, silver, or bronze jewelry or a gift card to spend in the sponsor’s shop.


These are just a few ways to excite your audience in the days leading up to the 2016 Summer Olympics.  Use one or all of them, or even use your own great ideas to create fun and engaging content that will be a win for you, your sponsors, and your members!
