This is not only true in team sports. The SPORT 2000 retail network also works according to this principle. For marketing, this means: The many specialised retailers and sports stores of varying sizes and orientations do not always have the time, personnel or know-how to design and implement their own advertising campaigns. So that not every retailer has to hire an agency, SPORT 2000’s headquarters in Mainhausen creates numerous advertising campaignsforall product categories – fromfitness to soccer to winter sports.
A well-known principle is used in their campaign management: advertising cost contributions. At SPORT 2000, these have also been shifted to a large extent towards online advertising. In particular, the budgets of the major sports brands, for which the SPORT 2000 partners qualify product orders, are used for socialmedia advertising. In order to be able to distribute these budgets for Facebook ads and sponsored posts to retailers in a targeted manner and to control their use, SPORT 2000 was looking for a technical solution.
