ChronoTrack Releases Stellar Digital Media Sponsorship Activation Results Following South Beach Tri

July 7th, 2016

Louisville, Colo., July 7ChronoTrack, the industry-leading provider of complete race solutions for endurance sports, recently launched a new branded digital media marketing campaign with a sponsor for the 2016 South Beach Triathlon, resulting in more than 700,000 Facebook impressions, according to insight extracted from Facebook APP and Media Insights API.

The campaign featured an activation with Pic2Go, a platform that allows events to boost sponsorship by engaging participants and allowing them to instantly share their branded photos to Facebook and create a dialogue with the “media sponsor”. The activation, detailed below, drove huge reach, social engagement and fan acquisition for both the race, sponsor and most importantly the participant.

“One of the challenges our race directors face is engaging and creating a dialogue with their participants while also demonstrating ROI to their sponsors,” says Sean P. Walkinshaw, Digital Media and Mobile Product Manager, ChronoTrack. “That will be the victor in this new media endurance marketplace, and it’s something we’ve achieved with the South Beach Triathlon.”

The 2016 South Beach Triathlon activation resulted in 532 participants posting branded images to Facebook for a total of more than 700,000 impressions, 34,407 likes and 3,089 comments. Additional metrics include:

  • 37,650 total branded images
