Sales & Marketing

Graphic Design, Website Design and SEO, Social Media, Online Reputation Management, Sales Aquisitions, Media Outreach and more

One of the things that makes Rink Management Services Corporation so unique is our sales and marketing. We generate promotional programs that offer barter rather than paid advertising and schedule special events where advertising costs and responsibilities will be handled by other entities. We always consider the client's budget and necessary advertising. What does this mean for you? It means you get high quality marketing for less cost!


As leaders in the industry we’ve developed extensive, customer-first sales methods. We are well versed in the relationship between current and future customers and revenue growth. All decisions are made with our clients and customers in mind and we aim to create a transparent environment that our clients appreciate.

Public Relations

We also have had excellent success using public relations in lieu of paid advertising, allowing our facilities to enjoy a much higher recognition rate in the media than other such facilities. In other words, we let other groups pay the way to advertise our client. Our public relations and media relations programs are among the best in the industry. We know how to connect with the media, and how to get them to help us sell your rink. Media partnerships are an important part of our marketing effort.

Online Marketing

We utilize a variety of online marketing tools to provide our clients with the best possible results for the dollar. Regular subscriber emails, social media contests and promotions, organic and paid search, website design, and more are all part of our marketing package.

Community Involvement

Fundraisers, Charity Events, Tournaments, Concerts and many more

Providing safe and enjoyable recreational facilities to all area residents is of paramount importance, and we try to expand the customer universe as far as possible while responding to community needs. Our relationship begins when we first begin managing an ice rink or recreation facility. 

Our commitment to community projects is strong. Our company literature is full of testimonials and thank-you letters from groups that might not ordinarily be able to afford or enjoy our recreational facilities. We also serve as the site for charity events and fundraisers, and work closely with community leaders. By partnering with local charities and community organizations, Rink Management Services Corporation is also able to keep a high profile for the facility, an important consideration for promoting facility usage, and for creating good will for facility owners, whether they be private or, more importantly, municipalities, where taxpayers want to know that their tax dollars are trickling back into the community.

Rink Management Services Corporation has a proven track record of attracting and promoting activities and events you would not normally associate with a sports facility, many of them in conjunction with community and charity partners. We are well known for our large sports tournaments, concerts and other regional and local events.

Here are some of the groups we work with:
  • Churches and a variety of religious organizations

  • Boys and Girls Clubs

  • Quest Foundation

  • YMCA Strong Kids Campaign

  • People to People

  • Chamber of Commerce

  • Upward Bound

  • Special Olympics

  • American Heart Walk Association

  • Muscular Dystrophy Association

  • Lose the Training Wheels (for disabled children)

  • The Red Cross

  • DARE (Drug Awareness Resistance Education)

  • Cancer Survivors

  • Asthma Foundation Goodwill Industries

  • Big Brothers/Big Sisters

  • The United Way

  • Toys for Tots

  • Boy and Girl Scouts

  • Relay for Life

  • Juvenile Diabetes Association


Working with each group takes a variety of forms. We are proud of the work we do within the community, and our reputation for good works and involvement precede us into new projects. Our philosophy is to give back to the community in order to not only serve, but to instill good will and create new and loyal customers.

Community Projects:

To further extend the visibility, as well as position the ice rink or recreation facility as an asset providing community leadership, we develop various promotional opportunities with community organizations.

  • Library Read 'n Skate Program - reaching children in the marketplace to encourage good reading habits.
