The Challenge

Analyse and engage football fans at scale following the Bundesliga’s annual winter break. The target was to reach 300 million people on social media in two weeks.

The Solution

Audiense was used to segment, build, and target a relevant audience of football fans. Strategic insights were delivered on the audience reached, to inform wider marketing strategies in the future. Follow-up workflows scheduled with Audiense allowed personalised organic communication depending on multiple variables for each person engaging with the campaign.

The Results

  • 600 million people reached on social, double the campaign target
  • Over half of those engaged with the campaign DIDN’T already follow a Bundesliga team, so a new relevant audience was identified for ongoing marketing efforts
  • Hashtag used 4,700 times (excluding Likes and RTs), all users analysed in Audiense
  • Over 50% of the Tweets contained original material created for the campaign
  • Over 200m organically reached on Twitter
  • Over 80 pieces of earned media in sports publications
