Success Story

Engaging Audiences for the Dallas Mavericks through YouTube

The Challenge

With an ultimate goal of driving ticket sales, the Dallas Mavericks sought to maximize the efficiency of their marketing budget, and their media agency, Asher Media, saw YouTube as an effective and measurable channel for reaching and engaging audiences.

But identifying the right audience, targeting and video content to align with on the vast YouTube video space is a complicated and rapidly evolving space, making it difficult for marketers to ensure they’re maximizing impact. Asher Media sought a technology partner that could effectively target the Dallas Mavericks’ audiences and drive strong view-to-completion and click-through rates.

The Strategy

Asher Media turned to Pixability’s award-winning video advertising platform.

While testing different targeting approaches, one of the tactics Pixability uncovered that drove higher video completion rates for the Mavericks’ was targeting people who have certain apps — specifically ticketing apps over basketball apps — and adjusted the campaign to drive efficiency.

The Result

Pixability’s strategic optimizations and expert insight enabled the Mavericks’ video campaign to surpass benchmarks by 2X for both view-to-completion and click-through rates — driving engaged fans to learn more about acquiring tickets.
