ESPN Introduces LiveConnect
May 17 16
ESPN introduced LiveConnect – a new product offering for advertisers that considers the emotional state of fans to determine which advertising will resonate best in the moment. By utilizing data and marrying it with the live sports environment, ESPN will work with clients to create a variety of messages and then deliver a different execution, based upon the outcomes in live games and highlights and a fan’s anticipated emotional state. LiveConnect enables ESPN to take advantage of the preferences entered or selected by millions of registered users of ESPN.com to deliver better advertising. For example, if a user has identified as a Warriors fan, the message delivered after a Warriors win will be different than one delivered after a loss. Early tests of the product have shown increased engagement when the message is tailored appropriately. Additionally, a fan’s reaction to a dunk, touchdown or strike out provides an opportunity for advertisers to customize messages to drive sales. LiveConnect is in Beta testing with several advertisers. While currently limited to digital display inventory, the product will expand to video inventory within the year.
