How Fanduel improved digital conversion
33% by making the fans the hero.

THE CLIENT

Daily fantasy blew up in 2015 and Fanduel quickly became the leader in daily fantasy sports. Their innovative technology made playing fantasy more lucrative with weekly winners and huge cash prizes.

DRAFTING NEW RECRUITS

With 65% market share, they set the pace for the industry, but because the market was so new, the race was on to gain more first-time players before the market became oversaturated. Our challenge was to produce creative to run on social and digital channels as well as draw new players.

WRITING A NEW PLAYBOOK

Fanduel had pushed such a heavy media spend on traditional television and radio that they had alienated the target that they really wanted to attract. Our strategy was to take the creative into a different direction to show the fan as a relatable sports enthusiast who plays Fanduel to enhance the game watching experience.

DURING THIS PROCESS WE CREATED NEW ADS AND IMAGERY FOR THE FANTASY CHAMPIONSHIPS TO HELP REINFORCE THEIR BRAND POSITION.

The heroes of Fanduel are the fans that make the game more exciting.

THE FINAL SCORE

In the first week of promotion the videos created a new direction for Fanduel’s digital presence. Each video was used to target first-time players through Facebook. After 175,000 plays in the first week of play the responses were almost immediate. The videos increased CTR by 33% and first-time players related to the brand in a way they never had before.
