"We're able to utilize their research team for consumer surveys and insights," Stevens says of IMG.

make decisions based on what they see on Facebook. "Social

media helps us connect with Michigan State fans in a way
they can relate to in order to help influence their purchase,"
Stevens concludes.

MSU-branded products. The university is now working

Spartan accessories and clothing on social media, helping
customers envision how their favorite university fits into
their everyday life.
