Fandom connects people with shared passions and builds communities around them. It offers them space to express their joy and love, whether that's for superheroes, sports teams, or even small-batch whiskeys. At MarketCast, we believe in the power of fandom. It's as important for brands as it is for action heroes and we do fandom research, data science, and analytics better than anyone on the planet.
