Sports New Media Secures IMG Investment Based On Its Syocial Platform

Sports New Media (SNM) is something of a curiosity. Combining both media management and a technology platform, it works with athletes, sports agents, sporting associations and sport governing bodies to manage their social media activity, especially on Facebook. SNM has become one of the few Facebook Preferred Marketing Developers in part because its platform, Syocial, allows it to manage, moderate, analyse and publish to over 100 million fans across thousands of Facebook pages. So it’s a sort of hybrid agency, but it’s somewhat more than that, since Syocial can be used by any business as well. And now IMG, the global sports, fashion and media company says it has acquired a minority equity stake in SNM (terms were not disclosed). IMG Worldwide is a global sports, fashion and media business, operating in 30 countries around the globe.

Sports New Media’s ‘Bleacher Report Model’ Might Train Writers — But Still Pays Nothing

Sports New Media is sort of like the tech world’s version of “Jerry Maguire“. It’s ahybrid media management and a technology platform, that works with athletes, sports agents and teams to manage their social media activity, especially on Facebook. But it also has a strong suit in creating content for its many sports clients, much of it on social platforms. Now, you might think it would operate a low-rent, pile ‘em high Demand Media model, but it’s now launched something quite different: a way to percolate new sports writers up the chain towards – in theory – a full-blown career. But perhaps controversially, it doesn’t plan to pay a cent for this content. Here’s how it works.
