The sports industry in North America is projected to be near $74 billion this year. The very best athletes like Lebron James, Serena Williams, Messi, and all the way back to Michael Jordan have changed the way marketers and advertisers reach target audiences. Many of these superstar athletes have earned billion dollar endorsements deals when looked at over the course of a career because of brands like Nike, Gatorade, Puma and so many more.

Because of this, the New Jersey Institute of Technology just released this detailed data visualization for members in the sports business and marketing community. I am passing the terrific information along to the Sports Techie community blog followers and readers because sports tech like the Fitbit is playing a bigger roll each year.

Bet On The NBA Champion Now

Bet On The NBA Champion Now

Place a bet on the 2018 NBA Champion winner now to lock in the best odds using sites like Amazing.Bet. Because as of right now, not even the Golden State Warriors are a lock to three-repeat after going through a recent three game losing streak enabling the Portland Trail Blazers to take over the number one seed in the Western Conference if the 2019 playoffs began today. The recent spat between all-everything Kevin Durant and all-attitude Draymond Green has caused a team rift the size of a California fissure when mixed in with the six games and counting groin injury to former MVP, Steph Curry. The West is loaded while the Eastern Conference has maybe five teams that could pull off the finals upset, at least on paper...

Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driver

Ride Share Driving For Lyft Atlanta

Lyft Atlanta Ride Share Driving – Sports Techie blog

Lyft is my preferred ride sharing company even before Uber started started taking negative PR hits because of their corporate culture towards women employees primarily forcing their founder to step down. When I did not own a car, I relied on mostly public transportation and that means Marta buses and trains in Atlanta as well as relying on ride share. I bought a Chevy Cruze last year and now drive exclusively for Lyft although I am cleared for Uber too. Now 1,500 rides later, it has truly been an amazing opportunity to both meet people, see the Atlanta area and places I would probably never have visited otherwise, and to understand this new age, tech-driven business model...
