So whether you’re a fan, a club owner, or simply interested in the future of digital technology in football, you’re sure to find something of interest in this series.


Targeted Mailing

Imagine you are the owner of the league collecting tons of data about your users. These users are, obviously, the fans of your member clubs. Even though you have plenty of news you would like to share with all of them, some of the information would make more sense only if targeted to the right group of consumers. This is simple – we call it fan segmentation. 

This is also exactly what Ekstraklasa does, thanks to TISA’s innovative products. They collect information about the users’ favourite clubs so that they can later send them Targeted Mailing from the same CIAM tool. Sounds cool? Check what other benefits it brings.

Mailing is important to every generation

Email marketing is a game-changer for businesses seeking to reach every generation, from baby boomers to Gen Z.

HubSpot’s recent study revealed that 73% of baby boomers use email every day, making it their preferred communication channel. 

Additionally, 59% of baby boomers have made a purchase after receiving an email, making it a highly effective marketing tool. 

For Generation X, email is also a popular communication channel, with 65% of them checking their email multiple times a day. According to Litmus, email marketing has a median ROI of 42:1, which is higher than any other marketing channel. 

Millennials, who are now the most powerful generation, check their email on average 20 times a day, making it a highly effective way to reach them. 

Gen Z, who are known for their digital savviness, also use email as a communication channel, with 81% of them checking their email at least once a day. 

These statistics prove that email marketing is a crucial strategy for businesses to reach all generations effectively.
