Brands want to be loved. Consumers seek happiness. Brands make consumers happy by creating strong emotional connections to the things consumers are most passionate about.
Sport is an inspirational power for good. Sport enhances the lives of individuals, communities, countries and the entire world. It promotes healthy living and teaches life lessons; it has stopped wars and ended injustices.
From a brand perspective, the passion that consumers have for sport represents one of the most underutilized raw materials in marketing… especially for brand marketers looking to make their brand more loved.
Simon Wardle, Octagon’s Chief Strategy Officer, will reveal how Octagon research has quantified what drives fan passion and how fans indulge their passion for sports. The resulting insights will help brands use content, positioning, messaging, timing and channel selection to harness the power of sport… and make consumers fall in love with their brand.
This session is part of the brand new SXsports programming at SXSW 2014.
