Those kiosks are real moneymakers

Austin-based AIM Technologies has scored again as big-league contracts for its fan appreciation programs have translated to minor-league success.

AIM, using electronic kiosks that look like automated teller machines, allows sports teams to collect data on fans and give those fans free stuff in return. The NBA World Champion San Antonio Spurs put the program into effect last season with great success.

Now 23 Triple-A baseball clubs will have the kiosks for AIM's FanCard program in the 2000 season, reaching a potential 12 million fans, according to AIM officials. About 500,000 fans of minor-league teams from the Albuquerque Dukes to the Toledo Mud Hens are expected to sign up for the FanCard program in the first year.

Major League Baseball's Oakland A's and the St. Louis Cardinals have used the program successfully to keep in touch with fans while granting them prizes to keep them coming back for more. The Texas Rangers also have taken up the program.

Because the latest deal taps into fans of the International League and the Pacific Coast League, data collected will give league officials access to marketing research data from more than just one team. The information then can be used to better meet fan desires and target them with future promotions.

The NBA and the Spurs also are reaching more die-hard fans with the program this year with a total of 35,000 members, well beyond the 15,000 expected. Amusement Business magazine reports that the Spurs are using feedback from the FanCard questionnaires to target fans with a Singles Night for adults and a Pokémon night for kids.

According to Spurs vice president of marketing Bruce Guthrie, a special ticket offer to users of the FanCard, marketed as Spurs Rewards in San Antonio, landed about $80,000 in sales before the start of the season.

  • Name game no minor deal: It's getting harder for government officials to take the high road when it comes to naming sports facilities.

    Five years ago, San Antonio city leaders turned down a $1 million offer from Miller beer to name the new baseball stadium after Miller Lite. They opted instead to take money from nobody and give the naming honor on the $10 million stadium to ex-Mayor Nelson Wolff.

    But with the kind of money floating around for naming rights these days, would the choice have been so clear-cut today?

    The new record for small-park naming rights goes to Fifth Third Bank, which is paying $4.3 million over 20 years to have the new home of Ohio's Class-A Dayton Dragons bear its name.

  • Luxury flying high in Dallas: American Airlines Center officials have sold 80 of the arena's 136 luxury suites two years before the new home of NHL Dallas Stars and NBA's Mavericks is slated to open.

    Most of the suites in corporation-rich Dallas are selling from $150,000 to $300,000.
