Fueling Fan + Partner Excitement With Customization That Converts

In the sports industry, competing to be the absolute best is nothing new for elite teams and franchises around the globe. In order to perform at your best when communicating with partners and fans alike, it is critical to tap into the most important play in your playbook: customization.

“According to google, 88% of consumers favor brands that provide helpful information from research to purchase. But only 47% of brands customize and serve information across the entire customer journey.”

Translating to sports: your partners, fans, and membership base expect customized experiences. Nearly every interaction your audience has with your brand should be consistent and customized. While achieving this level of sophistication may seem daunting, shifting your focus to the technology that powers your most important moments can be a quick way to implement customization on an organization-wide level.

With the right tech stack in place, your team can achieve an advanced level of customization while simultaneously driving revenue and excitement for your team. Teams with an elite tech stack might include: CRM, Marketing Automation, Presentation Platform, Data Asset Management (DAM), etc.

But with an integrated tech stack, customization can be quick, scalable, and second-nature.
