Sports fans are amongst the most engaged and passionate consumers in the world. However, as sports sponsorship evolves in an increasingly digital and fragmented landscape, it has become more difficult for brands to capture and retain fans’ attention.
The newly launched “Switch on Genius” campaign will raise awareness amongst a broad spectrum of brands as to how highly personalized, dynamic and data-driven content builds stronger connections with fans.
“We live in a highly saturated digital environment where brands find it difficult to cut through the noise to build consistent and valuable relationships with sports audiences,” said Josh Linforth, Managing Director of Media & Engagement at Genius Sports.
“As traditional sponsorship tactics struggle to deliver the same ROI as they did previously, Switch on Genius shines a light on how we help make that connection in a more effective and efficient way. Our unique access to fan audiences combined with live sports data gives brands endless ways to connect what’s going on in the live game to their campaigns. So, whether it’s a team scoring a touchdown or a game going to overtime, brands can ensure their creative and messaging stay relevant to capture the excitement of live sports.”
Genius Sports’ set of Media & Engagement solutions includes sports-specific media buying technology, personalized videos and a suite of free-to-play games, all designed to help brands activate fans – whether they are a sports sponsor or not.
Genius Sports is already the trusted partner to major brands worldwide, including Heineken, Jersey Mike’s, Captain Morgan, Dominos, British Airways and many more.
