The Jurich & El Toro Partnership
In April 2018, El Toro and the Jurich Group adjoined their intellectual capital, skill and resources to reinvent the way the sports industry goes to market. Having experience in the field, the Jurich team understands the threats and the opportunities — from marketing and fundraising, to sales effectiveness and sponsorship. El Toro is the nation’s leader and only tech firm who has unlocked the power of Geo-Framing. Together, this team will provide the missing piece that is desperately needed to achieve at the highest levels.
Here’s How We Make It Possible
We are revolutionizing sports marketing and college athletics with the most advanced tech consultancy solution in the industry. Together, we can harness the power of IP Targeting and Geo-Framing technology.
Leading With The Venue
By leading with the venue in our strategies, we get a more empowered, validated and permanent approach to identifying and engaging target audiences.
Any gaps within this ecosystem can be filled using our technology, e.g. if we only have one of these data points, we can match the other four data points.
Not only can we identify prospects with these methods, we can also complete the picture by actively targeting them. This is true one to one marketing.
