Analytics are play a significant role in the world of sports business.

Provide examples of specific marketing decisions the team, organization, or brand has made based on what they learned from analyzing available data. Include discussion of how the target audience reacted to these marketing strategies and the challenges of measuring the costs and return on investment associated with data analytics. Finally, share your opinion about the marketing strategies that were employed based on the available data analytics, and discuss whether or not you believe similar data driven marketing strategies could be applied across the sports business landscape. Cite at least two outside resources in your paper.
