Sports Influencers

Challenge

As betting on sports in U.S. states other than Nevada started to become legal from 2018, a large number of competing brands joined the gold rush.

Many of these brands had built awareness and customer loyalty from years of offering Daily Fantasy Sports.

BetAmerica, the Churchill Downs-owned sports betting brand, was new to the market. The brand needed to establish trust and build awareness among sports fans and potential sports bettors.

CONCEPT

Create engaging, entertaining and informative content utilizing influencers relevant to BetAmerica’s three most popular sports - NFL, NBA and MLB.

BOC Agency identified and recruited high-profile influencers in each sport, including two-time SuperBowl winner Chris Long as the brand’s NFL ambassador, along with former MLB pitcher Glendon Rusch for baseball, and popular podcasting quartet ‘No Dunks’ for the NBA.


Result

The compelling content that was created, combined with a strategy focused around leveraging our influencers’ followers, resulted in a significant rise in impressions and engagement on BetAmerica’s social channels, and a credible lift in brand awareness.
