Guidance for Sport Business Solutions
A "Sport Business Solution" is simply a business strategy that creates and maintains customers for a sports product, whether that product is attending or viewing games, participating in sports or buying sports equipment, apparel or footwear.
The more a solution is based on up-to-date market information relating to consumer behavior, the more likely it is to succeed. Therein lies Sports Market Analytics contribution…serving as an affordable, basic resource that provides nationwide market research relating to all aspects of the business of sport, upon which sports marketers can create, develop and execute effective business plans and programs.
Support Market Planning/Know Your Consumers
The sport business actually depends on revenues from three basic sources…participants, fans and sporting goods buyers. Sports Market Analytics provides information reflecting the similarities and differences in demographic characteristics and consumer behavior patterns within each sport for each of these three segments. And these characteristics and patterns can differ even within a specific sport.
For example, consumers who attend events are different demographically from those who watch these events on TV or mobile devices. Skilled participants buy their equipment at different outlet types than do unskilled or new participants. Frequently involved fans and participants are a small percentage of the total, but they consume most of the sport products and services.
Sports Market Analytics is the only service providing all-encompassing coverage of consumer demographics and market and media behavior across the entire spectrum of the business of sports.
Manage Teams, Leagues, Events, Venues
These are the "sport service providers" for fans and participants. Each "provider" is distinct from the other when it comes to business practices. For example, producing a sports event requires a different set of business skills and information needs from the skills and information needs required to produce an event or to build a venue.
Acknowledging these distinctions, Sports Market Analytics information is analyzed according to their respective business information needs. For example, demographics and behavior patterns are provided separately for professional fans, college fans, amateur participants, and buyers of equipment, apparel and footwear.
