The Best of Sports Betting Campaigns to Follow
A whole new world of action-packed campaign ideas awaits you. Win large with the following two campaign strategies (and download four more)
There is one thing that all online sports bettors have in common; the desire to win. Cause winning in sports betting almost always carries an added emotional aspect. And they seek this thrill on action-packed platforms that get their adrenaline rushing and heart pumping.
Now that sports are almost back in full swing, after long months of lockdown due to the pandemic, it’s time to get your game on.
The experience a sports bettor has on your platform in their first couple of weeks is crucial for long-term relationships, loyalty, and brand revenue. Most sports bettors become one-timers with a brand they started playing on, and will never deposit with it again.
UNLESS, you have a smart CRM plan in place. And we can help with that!
Today, we’ll show you how to score a whole host of goals with your sports bettors by following two CRM campaign strategies. And we’ll provide you with access to download all 6 in the full use case here.
#1 – CRM Campaign Strategy: Number of Deposits Personalization
Not surprisingly, players who make more deposits tend to have a higher future value. Thus, there is a strong motivation for sports betting operators to encourage players to make as many deposits as possible. Again, pretty obvious BUT different players should receive different incentives, and you must take extra care to nurture your most qualifying players.
With Optimove, you can easily analyze player data to determine how to tier your players best. For example, a sports betting website used Optimove to gather valuable insights to increase the number of deposits per tier.
As you can see in the chart below, for the sports betting website represented by the following player data, three clear value tiers are corresponding to the number of deposits made:
By following the Number of Deposits Personalization strategy, the sports betting operator sent a message to new players on the eighth day since each one’s first deposit. These value tiers further differentiated the messaging and offer:
The lowest tier was targeted with a very aggressive offer, along with a 20% match bonus for the next two deposits.
The medium and high tiers each received deposit matching bonuses of 15% and 10%, respectively, for deposits higher than the average of their individual deposits to date. For example, if the average of a player’s first five deposits was €115, the minimum deposit amount to receive the bonus would be set at €120.
#2 – CRM Campaign Strategy: Risk-of-Churn and High-Roller Personalization
This campaign was sent to new players on the eleventh day since each one’s first deposit. It was segmented into three groups, based on a combination of two factors: days since last activity and activity level. Together, these two factors were used to infer which players were at risk of churn and which were potentially valuable high rollers.
By using Optimove to analyze player data to determine the relevant tiers, the sports betting operator created definitions for this campaign’s segmentation, such as:
Risk of Churn = Players with more than three days elapsed since their last activity
High Roller = Players meeting all three of these criteria:
- Three or fewer days elapsed since their last activity
- At least six days with either a deposit, bet or both
- Total deposit amount to date in the top 20% of all new players
All Other Players = Players who don’t fall into the above two segments
Appropriate messages and incentives can then be automatically sent to each of these three segments. A good campaign strategy can be mimicked using the following flowchart:
