Activate Success Story
USAA needed to identify NFL players with military ties and a targeted social presence to digitally endorse their Salute to Service campaign.
Business Problem: USAA’s Salute to Service campaign focuses on raising military appreciation across the NFL through players, fans and teams. To promote the campaign, USAA wanted to utilize NFL players with military ties and a strong social media following with a focus on targeting specific markets--Minnesota, Green Bay, Tampa and Texas.
Activate gave USAA the ability to search active players and identify the perfect endorsers based on social presence, fan demographics and military association
Solution: By leveraging Activate, NFL Players Inc.’s digital endorsement platform, USAA was able to select players that would best represent their campaign. Activate’s player profiles displayed each player’s ties to the military, their social media presence and their connection to USAA’s target markets. Five NFL players were identified as the most influential for the campaign's key demographics. All messages were scheduled and submitted for review and approval directly to the agents and athletes using the Activate platform.
USAA’s message reached 1.83 million fans on Twitter by utilizing Activate.
Results: USAA activated Vincent Jackson, Randy Starks, Jared Allen, Jordy Nelson and DeMarcus Ware to represent their campaign (see inset about why the players fit the profile). Through the players’ tweets, USAA reached a total of 1.83 million fans, with a total of 4,232 engagements. Each tweet garnered an average reach of 152,000 and 352.6 engagements--allowing USAA the ability to target and engage large audiences with their timely messages.
