Frequently asked questions about Cards
Please click on the question to see the answer
- What are Cards?
Cards are small infographics which are triggered automatically by certain events during sports event
- What is the difference between Cards and Widgets?
Even though Cards and Widgets look very similar they are different. Widgets present data as it currently is, the moment you view it. They are constantly updated, whereas Cards present data as a snapshot in time, the moment when the card was triggered. So basically a Card is like a screenshot of a widget.
- What is the difference between Web and Twitter Cards?
The content of the infographics is the same. They are just published on different platforms. Twitter cards can be posted directly into your twitter feed. Web Cards are integrated into your website or native app.
- Why should I buy cards?
Web Cards are designed to work well on mobile, so any company looking to enhance its mobile offering (web or app) may find them useful. The so called Web Cards can be shared from the website or app to Twitter or Facebook, and actually show the data associated with them in a link preview. This link brings social media users to your website.
Twitter Cards integrate live sports data into your social content, and can be completely automated. This can free up demand on social media teams. You may include match-specific links in the tweet text to drive traffic from social media to your website.
Both Web and Twitter cards have advertising integration built in.

CUSTOMISE and monetise YOUR CARDS
It is easy to adjust the style to fit your brand. You can define font and colour scheme of your Cards. In addition to these customisation options Cards also offer great monetisation opportunities. There is a banner space at the top of the stream, and small logo space in the bottom left corner of each Card to promote own products or those of advertising partners. For Web Cards, the banner image can be hooked up to an ad server.
