Case Study // Fiverr and New York Yankees : Game Changer

Fiverr and the New York Yankees team with Launchpad6 to create big league opportunities for small businesses.

 

Fiverr is the world’s largest online marketplace for creative and digital services.

The Fiverr challenge

Fiverr appreciates how difficult it can be for small businesses to take their business to the next level and is always looking for innovative and unique ways to help, and so, “The Game Changer” was launched.  The Game Changer is a storytelling competition for start-ups, small businesses and entrepreneurs. People were invited share their stories through video to win exposure for their brand at Yankee Stadium and at the same time create broader brand awareness for Fiverr.

Fiverr needed a cost effective and efficient way to reach as many small to medium businesses across the U.S. as possible and so looked to the market for a reliable video competition solution, ultimately choosing Launchpad6 ContestPad to fill that need.

The Launchpad6 solution

“The ContestPad platform proved to be great value for money, packed with an impressive array of features” says Liron Smadja, Fiverr’s Senior Marketing Manager.

Using ContestPad, Fiverr was able to:
 

  • Customise the contest site.

  • Seamlessly integrate it into its own website.

  • Develop rules to govern the contest, including who could enter and voting.

 

In addition to being simple to use, the platform allowed entrants to upload their video entries directly from their phones, tablets and computers and to promote their entries to their followers on social media. This in turn generated a buzz for their brand.

Each participant was invited to create a 30 second video pitching why his or her start-up, small business, or entrepreneurship deserved to go big league. This included detail as to why they went out on their own, and what drives them to succeed. Entrants were encouraged to be unique and creative!

 

The results

Fiverr competitions get bigger and better each year and this competition was no exception.  Using the Launchpad6 platform, Fiverr received more than 600 entries from innovative entrepreneurs and small businesses across the US.

Entrants received a combined vote count of more than 34,000 votes and attracted over 65,000 video plays. Entries were also shared over social platforms more than 16,000 times. This generated great brand awareness for Fiverr and the entrants

Once the voting was complete 5 winners were selected with each receiving Fiverr Credit and Mentorship, Advertising at one of the most iconic stadiums in the world, Yankee Stadium and Yankees Tickets and a VIP party with Yankee great Johnny Damon.
