  1. Podcast: Talking Sports With Bleacher Report CEO Dave Finocchio | AdExchanger

    Welcome to AdExchanger Talks, a podcast focused on data-driven marketing. Subscribe here.

    CEO Dave Finocchio started Bleacher Report along with his three cofounders in 2005 after deciding most sports media wasn’t connecting with young people.

    "There was a generation of sports fans that have been stuck with their dad’s and grandfather’s sports voice," Finocchio says on the latest episode of AdExchanger Talks. "A lot of the content that existed then was very wordy, very tied to things that happened during games. It wasn’t a reflection of how my generation was talking about sports."

    With minimal funds, they built an audience and a business using a crowd-sourced content model. They succeeded. Today BR is among the top sports-focused websites in the world, with some 40 million users, according to comScore. Along the way it pivoted away from amateur content and now has about 500 employees focused on writing, producing, distributing and of course monetizing its sports coverage.

    The company has evolved on the advertising side too.

    Initially, BR was a "classic display advertising business" in Finocchio’s words. "We aggregated millions of eyeballs onto a website and app and we sold different forms of banners and pre-roll," he said.

    Today its efforts are far more aligned with advertiser objectives. "Everything that we do internally and all the infrastructure we build around advertising is geared towards actually driving results for our partners," he said. "We’re not trying to just run media and get to the next campaign. We need partnerships."

    Also in this episode: BR’s programmatic philosophy, how people watch sports now and why Finocchio came back to run Bleacher.

  10. 229: Rapidfire 67 - ShopTalk

    We’re answering your questions right after Dave finishes grinding his gears about SaaS. Programming after 30? Development environment possibilities? Getting content from clients? rems vs ems? Angular vs React metaphors?

    Q & A

    8:03 Foundation is specifically built with Sass, and heavily leverages imports for each feature. Basically, if you don’t need the feature it is up to the developer to not include it.

    19:00 I’m starting to finally understand the concepts of Angular and React. However, I’m struggling to understand when I would reach for one over the other. Could you give me an example of a use case for Angular and a use case for React?

    28:30 What’s the deal with rem vs. em?

    38:57 I wondered if you’d ever considered doing a show about ‘older’ people making the jump into tech. By older I mean 40s, 50s, 60s and beyond, as I’m aware that in tech 30+ is often considered old, which I find hilarious!

    49:00 Any tips on process for getting content from clients? We’ve tried stuff like dropbox folders, master word docs, etc. Getting it all wrangled into a clear deliverable from them feels harder than it should be.

    54:50 I thought a very cool thing about Wes Bos’ React course (which was great) was the first video on getting your dev environment set up. I’d love to hear if you guys have locked into a workflow to solve this particular issue, or just generally if there are parts of your workflow that you think are cool and are worth sharing.
