Fanzo: So You Don’t Have to Watch Sports
Go to Fanzo.me to find out more about the app.
So Wayne’s working for this new company, Fanzo
, which provides a mobile app for sports fans so they can follow the latest social media news about their favorite teams on their phones. Which is swell for the sports fan, but I want to point out something for another group that I happen to belong to and believe is a demographic they’re overlooking.
That is: the few, the proud, the ones who don’t give a hoot about sports. We just don’t care. And yet we live with people who love ’em. And Fanzo provides a bridge. Using Fanzo, I can have tidbits with which to engage my loved one. For example, when Wayne came in the other day, I was able to say, “Hey, did you see the Mariners signed Quintero?” Do I know who Humberto Quintero is? Nope. But I do know the Mariners signed him. Thanks, Fanzo!
Fanzo: It’ll help you fake enough interest in sports that you can survive your relatives, in-laws, and assorted friends.
I can’t understand why they haven’t hired me as a marketer yet.
