SSG adds Publisher Solutions products to its global proposition to meet the needs of the emerging opportunities within the media landscape
Spotlight Sports Group (SSG), a technology, content and media company specialising in sports betting and fantasy sports, has announced its expanded B2B product portfolio. The addition of Publisher Solutions reflects Spotlight Sports Group’s ongoing work with media owners and aligns with its recently launched US proposition.
The new suite of products ranges from easy-to-integrate betting widgets to fully managed affiliate solutions that are designed to deliver actionable content to drive engagement and incremental revenues. The new solutions utilise state-of-the-art modular affiliate technology and leverage Spotlight Sports Group’s unique heritage in creating industry-leading sports betting media.
The catalyst for new product development follows research from Nielson that 55% of sports fans declare an interest in sports betting. With some traditional digital revenue streams approaching maturity, media companies can use Spotlight Sports Group’s Publisher Solutions as a viable route to accelerate revenue growth.
The suite of products contains a range of services from affiliate management to content creation, to performance tracking and analysis, all of which is managed by Spotlight Sports Group. This allows media companies to simply plug in the unique solutions to their platforms in up to 70 languages.
Discussing the new-look offering and website, Spotlight Sports Group’s Head of Digital B2B Will Fyler said: “We are ready to expand our global value proposition, especially given the recent acquisition of Alarm Sports Network. As well as a global website refresh to reflect our growing proposition, we are delighted to present a range of new products such as our Turnkey Affiliate Solutions, Smart Widgets and Free-To-Play games that cater for media companies globally.”
Fyler added, “Sports fans are interested in sports betting and, given the global growth of betting, there is a significant opportunity for media publishers to provide their sports audiences with great content and products while also increasing revenues.
We also know that providing betting-related content and products effectively is labour intensive and difficult. However, as a media company operating Racing Post among other brands, we are in a fortunate position that over the last 30 years we have built up the range of skills to achieve this and so we can now offer bespoke Publisher Solutions tailored to any media company’s audience.”
