Through this association, the experts at eTAGZ work in tandem with retail partners to develop and package marketing campaigns that establish lasting brand loyalty with fans of many Division-1 schools. The ability of eTAGZ to provide a captivating medium of information has become increasingly popular with forward thinking companies, now this relationship allows those businesses to make new connections with a dedicated group of customers.
Following their collaborations with Rite Aid, Medicine Shoppe International, the NBC Digital Health Network and Harvard Health Publications, this new deal allows eTAGZ to help retail manufacturers make direct contact with college football and basketball consumers as the college bowl season and the national men’s basketball tournament approach. During these two events, companies are constantly competing for market share within the college sports fan category. A product paired with eTAGZ distinguishes itself from the competition by adding value that is specifically geared towards that audience. ”We’re excited at the prospects of our partnership with eTAGZ and their expertise in creating quality digital media products,” says Rich Routman, SVP Business Development and Sales, Collegiate Images, LLC.

Through the eTAGZ platform companies are able to create their own media outlet and make a meaningful, long-lasting connection with targeted customers. Attaching CDs, DVDs or even flash drives to products doesn’t just give customers an added value when deciding between competing merchandise, but also defines the brand with content that is significant to the consumer.
“With the strategies and tools we provide, the ability to reach a highly targeted group of customers with extremely efficient, trackable content is easier than ever,” added Jacobson. “No longer do messages have to fight for the limited space allowed through traditional marketing avenues.”
