Our Work: Entertainment
Follow The Eyes works with several sources of entertainment. Scroll down to see examples of how we’ve grown their businesses.
Tony Stewart’s Eldora Speedway consistently requires the most sophisticated, integrated, audience-focused marketing plan that Follow the Eyes is challenged to develop and execute annually. They hold the biggest dirt track races every year for sprint cars and late models. The fan base is unique to each type of car, and they come from as far away as Australia to witness these legendary events.
We market Eldora in 61 DMA’s. Marketing channels include online banners/video, social, broadcast, cable, radio, billboards, and online audio. The strategies range from flighting electronic billboards to match TV and radio campaigns to geofencing race dates from across the country. Our design team created over 350 individual elements in 2018. We served through our platform 47,892,561 impressions in 2018 on behalf of Eldora using social media, online banners, online video, online audio and Connected TV. The total number of impressions (TV, radio, and billboard included) was 71,236,778!
Campaigns were delineated by racing enthusiast and non-racing fan. Racing enthusiasts were served messages, based on car type, that encouraged online ticket purchases. Lookalike audiences were also targeted, and advanced purchases of tickets grew to an all-time high of 46 percent average for the major events. The non-racer messaging focused on family fun, low cost of attendance, and encouraged first time attendance. Walk-up attendance increased 12 percent for 2018. We look forward to working with the most famous dirt track in the world for many years to come.
When Sky Zone launched a new location in Cincinnati, they needed to spread the word about their new, family-fun destination in a large market with a competitive environment.
We executed an integrated marketing strategy to build excitement for their Grand Opening and create awareness about the fun activities they offer. Television, radio, and billboards were used for general awareness, while digital and social media targeted families and teenagers with active, entertainment-driven lifestyles.
They gathered a following of 2,500+ in social media before opening their doors and continue to grow their business as a must-visit destination in the greater Cincinnati area.
Adventures Newfoundland, previously Canoe Hill Adventures, partnered with Follow The Eyes in early 2019. Adventures Newfoundland offers unique sea kayaking and camping experiences in the beautiful, remote Bay of Exploits. We worked hand-in-hand with founder, Paul Langdon, to rebrand his company from the ground up. First, Follow The Eyes created a new logo and color scheme that accurately represented the company. Next, a new website was written, designed, laid out, and launched within a span of two months. Then, our social media team successfully migrated their previous social media following onto a totally rebranded page.
After launching a new website, Facebook page, and Instagram page, we deployed a multi-tiered marketing strategy to help Adventures Newfoundland develop their online presence. Facebook and display campaigns were setup to increase brand awareness and gain more online followers, and a search engine marketing campaign was launched to ensure Adventures Newfoundland is found when users are searching for niche keywords that relate to their business. Through these efforts, several new leads and customers are connecting with Adventures Newfoundland who may have never been able to connect with them before!
