  11. Principles of the sports market segments – to help answer questions you may get • Do segments vary by location? • No - each segment has the same characteristics – no matter where they are based • So 3.1% of Ben’s play rugby league whether they’re based in Warrington or West Sussex! • How accurate are the segments? • It is a modelled dataset – based on likelihood and propensity to do certain things • If you go to the postcode level there is no guarantee that you will find exact matches • Why don’t I fit into any of the segments? • The segments are generalisations so you may not find an exact match • The ages are broader than you think • If you look at the options in an age band you can easily find the one you are not • Which segment am i? • Is there a BME segment? • No but each of the segments are made up of various origin groups • Pen portraits and index tables tell you more on this • Secondary names (in pen portraits) also help people to adapt marketing messages • Sporting Equals helped define the groups and provided images for us Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  12. Principles of the sports market segments – to help answer questions you may get (2) • How does this work fit in with Active People? • The segments can help us to estimate participation at the local level using Active People data • This enables to estimate participation at levels below Local Authority level because we know what % of the population are Bens and what % of Bens play sport • But this work is not a substitute for Active People data and we should always use the participation data from Sports Market Segments with this caveat • What can we do about young people? • The segments begin at age 18 • As they are built up using credit data • What about people with a limiting disability? • We have limited/no information on disability - due to limitations in the data (this was included in the original work which had a larger sample) • But the pen portraits tell us about those who have a limiting disability or illness • And the tool also tells us about health as a motivator or barrier • Not all sports and facilities are on the tool • That’s true, but we can use postcode search for any place in England • And we can only use the sports where the response counts are high enough Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  13. Exercise: put yourself in the shoes of one of your key stakeholders (Local Authority, NGB etc). Think about the potential benefits of using segmentation to explore your local market and any limitations – prioritise these using numbers (5 mins) WORK IN PAIRS Advantages • Different people like to do different things • Because you haven’t got money to deliver to everyone in your catchment • You can find out how best to reach certain people • Target services – save money • Take a more sophisticated approach to ‘sell sport’ Limitations • Will everyone target the same segment? • Will harder to reach groups be missed? • Does such a broad brush approach lose the detail we need? Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  14. The 19 pen portraits

  15. About the pen portraits • Prepared by Sport England • Information within them available from index tables • Download pdfs from the web tool • Click ‘segments’ from top of page • Designed to print in colour or black and white • Users can print them for themselves • Use to paint a picture of each segment • And how to reach them Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  16. What do the pen portraits tell us? • Demographic information • Age • Occupation • Lifestyle • Secondary names • Ethnic origin • Sporting behaviour • Top sports they do • Sports they’d like to do • Participation in 1 x per month, 1 x per week, 3 x per week • Organised sport • Motivations and barriers • Satisfaction • What else they like to do • What would make them do more • How to reach them Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  21. Exercise: Imagine you are one of your key stakeholders (LA, CSP, NGB, facility operator). Take a pen portrait and assume that they are your target market Think about what you could offer them and how you would reach them. Use paper provided to draft a mailout/poster/website WORK IN PAIRS -15 MINUTES • Type of stakeholder: • Segment: • What could you offer to them? • How could you reach them? • What would your key messages be? Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  22. The web tool

  23. Background • We developed a web tool in response to consultation • Strong demand for a web resource • And to enable more people to use the data for themselves • Limited resource within the Sport England • Guiding principle of the web tool • Keep it simple • …. but allow for complex analysis • We have designed this to be as intuitive as possible • We have had to make some sacrifices • But have some budget to upgrade based on feedback • Sophisticated users can have raw data for their own GIS systems Creating sporting opportunities in every community

  24. What is the Sports Market Segmentation web tool? • Free, online, simple, intuitive tool • Two steps – set segment input and location • Map, chart and table outputs • Raw data download - includes unit postcode • http://segments.sportengland.org/ Creating sporting opportunities in every community
