Tuesday Ten: James Royer, Caity Kauffman

Tuesday Ten 4-15


Running the social and digital media teams for an NHL franchise requires teamwork, planning, a willingness to listen and try something new. Good thing the Tampa Bay Lightning (my adopted team) have two of the best in the business in James Royer and Caity Kauffman.

James and Caity joined me on the latest Tuesday Ten Show. As the Lightning get ready to for Game 1 in their opening round series tomorrow night against the Montreal Canadiens, we discussed a bit of what goes on in utilizing social/digital media for the playoffs. There’s a bit more to their strategy not just during the playoffs, but throughout the season that, in my opinion, requires them to be on their game with no days off.  

Here are some of the highlights:

  • 0:48Intro to James and Caity
  • 2:07“Social Captain” at Lightning games
  • 4:21Planning strategy for the NHL season and Stanley Cup playoffs
  • 7:13 Using the “POST” method to decide which social platforms to use
  • 9:36 Freezing of the Instagram account (#BoltsFreeze), including a stalker story
