Phase 1

Expanding DraftKings Kingdom by 30K

Avid sports fans have taken part in sports betting for decades and have since paved the way for daily fantasy sports content and sports betting operators like DraftKings to rise to success. In spite of regulatory barriers in various states around the U.S., DraftKings is one of the most prominent sports betting operators, with the widest selection of leagues and coverage around the United States. With marketing efforts in every industry trending towards TikTok, DraftKings knew TikTok was an important platform to tackle. With the help of our team, their TikTok goals were not only met but exceeded as well.

Phase 2

Crafting a Stellar Campaign

Innovation is in NeoReach’s DNA. We knew with our expertise, innovation, and comprehensive database, we could craft a stellar campaign and expand the DraftKings Kingdom.

Influencer Implementation

50 unique influencers across TikTok were activated during the start of the NFL season, creating a total reach of over 66 million on the platform. Our team created an eclectic roster, activating a diverse range of young adult male and female creators from dancers, comedians, firefighters, international trick-shotters, and more. Each influencer selected had over 80% of their audience within DraftKings' target market. Selecting a wide variety of influencers that simultaneously fit DraftKings' target audience showcased their versatility and heightened the organic feel of the campaign.

Making it Reign

The influencers had an incredible time bringing the creative concept “create your own touchdown dance” to life. Each one channeled their inner football player and paired their touchdown dance with an original licensed song designed for DraftKings and the hashtags #MakeItReign and #Touchdowndance. Implementing hashtags, a dance, and an original song leveraged the platform for what it’s known for and in turn received phenomenal engagement from the audience.

Looking to the Future

The #MakeItReign campaign enabled DraftKings to build a 50+ influencer base to work and engage with in the future.
