The 2018-2019 NFL season is here, and while we didn’t use our machine learning engine to build our fantasy teams (hmm, we maybe should have thought of that), we did put it to work at building Crafted Audiences for NFL fans. 


First, we build a model based on users that visit various team-devoted fan, blog and merchandise sites. 
We then identify and segment other users that exhibit behaviors similar to NFL team’s site visitors. We rescore audience members on a daily basis, adding and removing fans based on their most recent web activities. This ensures that only the most relevant people are targeted.

Our new Audience Search tool allows marketers to uncover insights on over 2000+ audiences. Read on for some of our favorite NFL Fan Facts that our data revealed. We’ve also put together one sheets with example insights that you can find for fans of the Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, and Atlanta Falcons.
