Financial Services: League Sponsorship Activation

Our Client

A top financial services provider engaged InStadium to assist in the activation of its National Hockey League sponsorship and, specifically, the promotion of its NHL-branded credit card.

Our Solution

With a product tailored to appeal to NHL fans and commissioned by the league to support its brand, our client looked to InStadium for a partner who could connect with millions of hard-to-reach hockey consumers in their ideal environment: NHL arenas.

Recognizing the value in direct-marketing to NHL customers in their element, our client tabbed InStadium to ensure that its campaign produced maximum impact. Our powerful live sports fan engagement platform included a show-stopping audio call to action, a can't-miss Jumbotron advertisement and supportive in-game LED and surround sound at every game, in every arena. InStadium customized a flight to maximize exposure and efficiently target our client's desired audience, delivering nearly twice the contracted impressions among adults 18 and over, as well as a brand presence that was voted most unique and impactful—three times greater than the nearest competitor's—in postgame surveys.

Financial Services: League Sponsorship Activation

Financial Services: League Sponsorship Activation

Our Client

A premiere financial services company required a partner to help strengthen its association with the NFL brand and build awareness in its “Make It Epic” marketing campaign. To move the needle among its desired audience, our client required unique expertise, assets and connections.

Our Solution

InStadium's network of NFL venues enabled our client to choose a flight customized to its needs and reach its best customers in their ideal environment—game day at the stadium. Airing brand creative in this setting strategically aligned our client with the NFL brand, and InStadium's dynamic, larger-than-life media assets hit a pitch-perfect note as the delivery method for the “Make It Epic” campaign. Combining those assets—which make up the foundation of our live sports fan engagement platform—with thousands of co-branded cheer cards and a seat-upgrade fan promotion boosted the magnitude of the campaign to truly epic levels.

As a result, our client bested all in-venue competition in creating “a significant marketing presence,” topping its nearest direct rival by more than a 5-to-1 ratio, according to one postgame study. This was especially significant in a market (a live stadium audience) swelling with five times as many “influentials” as the general population. Additionally, our findings confirmed a greater impact in terms of key associations for our client—including delivering good value and “making it epic”—over that of a control television audience.

Insurance: Media Plan Extension

Insurance: Media Plan Extension

Our Client

A major American insurance provider chose to partner with InStadium as an extension of a newly developed television campaign in order to generate customer interest in its brand.

Our Solution

Our client, an investor in substantial television and cinema advertising, tabbed InStadium to invigorate its summer campaign with a Minor League Baseball flight. The purpose: to extend our client's reach to a higher-quality customer demographic and create more unique impressions during a relatively flat consumer-audience period for its existing channels.

Leveraging InStadium's live sports fan engagement platform, our client successfully grew target audience awareness, viscerally connecting with new and valuable consumers in those moments when they were most receptive to the campaign message. A powerfully persuasive video board advertisement and in-game LED and surround sound were supported on site by brand mascot appearances and company agents communicating core messaging. With InStadium's dynamic assets and one-of-a-kind audience experience, our client was provided the tools to win over coveted “influentials,” vastly extend its net reach and capitalize on fans' positive state of mind at the ballpark.

Insurance: Media Plan Market Testing

Our Client

A leading national insurance provider approached InStadium with the goal of comparing the effectiveness of an in-venue media campaign versus television advertising.

Our Solution

To measure awareness in our client's brand among live sports attendees against that of a television audience, InStadium created a small in-venue test flight. Leveraging our live sports fan engagement platform—a booming audio announcement, larger-than-life video featuring brand creative, and in-game LED and surround sound—InStadium confirmed for our client the power of an incisive message and dynamic media assets delivered as part of the fan experience.

On-site postgame research found greater consideration intent among a live sports audience when compared to a control group of television viewers. InStadium's mixed-media assets had a dramatic effect on recall and impact, outpacing all other on-site advertisements by a wide margin. And because an overwhelming percentage of postgame survey respondents on site rated as “super influentials” in the insurance category, our client's message was not only amplified by the live fan experience but also more accurately targeted to its intended audience.
