Data Analytics and Marketing Case study

Analytics play an integral role in the world of sports business. From the selection of players to the way teams advertise to fans to what concessions are sold at sporting events, nearly every facet of sports business relies on data analytics to generate revenue and create a positive return on investment for teams, organizations, and brands. Analytical data on significant segments within a fan base provide marketers with demographic and psychographic information on their ideal consumer and target audience, around which they can then build a successful marketing plan.

For this assignment, assume that you are tasked with creating a marketing plan to advertise a promotional event for a sports team. Refer back to the three fan personas you developed in the Fan DNA assignment and use those personas in conjunction with the demographic data for your team’s fans (provided in the applicable “Instagram Demographic Analysis,” located in Course Materials) to guide your marketing strategy for this event. Conduct additional research and pull information from secondary sources where possible, such as social media interactions and consumer feedback, that provide supplementary data on your target demographic.

Establish what type of promotional event you will be planning and organize your strategic approach. This event could be anything from a social media giveaway for game tickets that requires fans to complete a small task (e.g., follow the team on Instagram and comment on a photo) to a meet-and-greet with athletes after a game. Reflecting on your research, consider what might interest or motivate your target fan base and what kinds of strategies you could implement to reach a wide number of fans, enhance brand and team awareness, and ultimately increase revenue for the team.

In a response of 750-900 words, describe your promotional event and how you will be integrating data analytics from the fans of your chosen sports team as a part of the marketing process. Respond to the following in your paper:

Event: What type of event are you planning? What kind of a promotion will pique the interest of your sports team’s fans to encourage turnout, engagement, and participation?
Objectives: What do you intend to accomplish with this event, from both a marketing and a financial standpoint?
Data and Analysis: How will you apply the demographic data from your research and the fan personas you created to market this event to an optimal number of your team’s fans? How can the data be applied to increase ticket sales, as well as the sale of goods such as concessions and merchandise?
Unique Selling Proposition: What makes your promotional event unique? How is it different from incentives offered by competitor teams? How is it different from incentives offered by your chosen team in the past? In what ways does your promotional event cater specifically to the team’s fan demographics?
Marketing: How do you plan to advertise and promote this event to ensure that it reaches your target audience?
Cite at least two resources in addition to the provided demographic data.
