Chalkline Ad Tech Integrations for Affiliates

by Joe Kustelski in September 12th, 2023

 Integrating ad tags with Chalkline's rich first-party data set drives results for media clients that produce great gaming content and run fan engagement contests.

The Opportunity: Content + Contests + Conversions

Many of our media and affiliate clients are using ad tech to bolster their product offerings and scale their revenue opportunity in North America's growing gaming market.

Better Collective, one of our clients, recently announced record revenues, in part due to their investment in ad tech.

Chalkline games, with our rich first-party player data, integrates naturally with ad tech to deliver localized and highly personalized ads that convert.

And we're only just getting started.

Why Chalkline Integrates Ad Tech

Chalkline games are more than just making picks.

Once a player makes their picks:

* They receive a confirmation page with localized promotions.

* They get an email or SMS that confirms their picks and links them back to their My-Picks page.

* They check leaderboards.

* They check their picks to see how they're doing as results of the games they picked start flowing in.

On average, every game play results in:

* 3.5 page views

* 3:12 seconds of web or mobile engagement

* About 1.5 emails being opened

So how can we better localize and personalize that engagement for our clients?

Integrate with our client's ad tech to ensure that latest and greatest promotions for players in every state, province or jurisdiction.

The Games + Ad Tech Solution

Our goals for this product rollout:

  1. Make all non-PII player and game data available to our partner's ad tech solution. This ensures optimal localization / personalization.
  2. Ensure that ad tags don't interfere with our award-winning platform's conversion rate (players are here to play games, after all).
  3. Ensure that EVERY post-play touch point had an integrated ad tech point.
