Don Julio was looking to reach consumers in “going out” mode – pre Happy Hour. Yardbarker created a ‘Don Julio Happy Hour Post Of The Day’ that was published every Thursday and Friday at 4pm. The post was written by Yardbarker editors and featured a topic that gave guys a hot topic to discuss at Happy Hour.

2K Sports wanted to integrate their game directly into a conversation athletes were having with fans. We created ‘Oden’s Outlet Pass’, a contest where Greg Oden asked users about college hoops and chose winners to receive a copy of the game.

Yardbarker “smoked the other sports sites in terms of CTR” and “incorporated Greg directly into the ad buy… it clearly makes the overall numbers more compelling” - Mark Goodrich, Marketing Director, 2K Sports
