    Self-Serve Fan Audience
    CRM platform

    The Trend

    Millions of influential entertainment figures, properties and digital marketers are proactively seeking easy-to-use technology that facilitates managing their fan communications and content distribution across digital media channels & devices.

    Our Solution

    At the core of the FanBridge is an intelligent Fan Audience CRM platform designed to super serve these fan marketers as they build, engage, track, and monetize their audiences across email and social media.

    Direct-to-Fan Advertising & Sponsorships

    The Trend

    Brands will spend over $51 billion this year globally on branded entertainment, and though audience viewership & engagement is rapidly moving online – digital spends are in their infancy due to inefficiencies in aligning brands with their target audiences.

    Our Solution

    FanBridge provides integrated advertising solutions, such as Social Digest, that give brands a measurable & direct path to reaching their target audience by aligning their message with our 150k+ global entertainment influencers.

    Integrated Partner
    Ecosystem

    The Trend

    Everyday, thousands of cutting edge companies are building amazing fan facing products/apps that solve for core needs of clients like ours, only to find they have no direct way to get in front of our clients (and their fan audiences) at scale.

    Our Solution

    The FanBridge Partner Ecosystem is an app-store like sandbox for these innovative companies to plug into and be found by our clients. Once activated by a client, their products/apps are instantly integrated into that client’s fan facing assets & communication channels.
