Sometimes I get blown away by statistics that I was either unaware of, or had a glimmer of knowledge about the subject…or like the first one; already knew.
Here are 10 thought starters:
1. The Kids Bowl Free Marketing Movement registered 2,150,000 kids last year from 900,000 families. Our goal this year is 2,300,000 million kids registered. Go to www.kidsbowlfree.comand get your center going in the right direction.
2. 21.5 million Kids between the ages of 6 and 17 play team sports. The number #1 sport is basketball Bigger than the population of Texas! The number #1 reason kids quit team sports, by a long shot; 4 out of 10 said, “it just wasn’t fun.” (source ESPN sports participation study).
3. Kids start in team sports by age 6 years and 4 months. Better get them then if you want them to bowl.
4. If Facebook were a country it would be #2, between #1, China and number #3, India
5. More than 1 billion unique users visit YouTube visit YouTube each month and over 6 billion hours of video are watched each month on YouTube—that’s almost an hour for every person on Earth.
6. One out of three households in this country have no male father figure.
7. If you are “one in a million” in the USA, there would be 25,000 of you in China.
8. The Super Bowl is expected to register about 115 million Nielsen households, but with out of home viewing in bars, restaurants and at home held Super Bowl parties accounting for (estimates range) another 25 to 45 million, Super Bowl viewing could reach 160 million or ONE out of TWO people in the USA…
9. And the 2015 cost for a 30 second Super Bowl commercial is $4.44 million or $27.50 per thousand viewers or 2.7 cents each (based on 160 million viewers)
10. Now if every proprietor in the USA spent $1,100 each we would have about $4.4 million for a super bowl spot. Just dreaming
