Advertiser tips for higher sporting conversions 💜

Find your competitive edge with some top Advertisers/Publishers’ hacks. 

Select the right website categories ✅

Make sure you’re targeting the right traffic across ALL sports-related website categories. 

Head over to your Advertiser DSP panel and select “sports” under the website categories option. Yes, yes! The update has been made! Now you have to select “Sports” only instead of all categories and subcategories… Woohoo! This targeting logic ensures that traffic will engage with only the highest converting traffic.

2022 Update

The “Sports Videos & Channels” sub-vertical, which, up until now has been under “Arts and Entertainment” has moved over to “Sports” on the main category dropdown. The idea is to have all of your sports traffic in one easy-to-navigate dropdown so that you never have to go searching for top sporting sub-categories. 

Boost Your User Interest Targeting 🚀

When selecting User Interest Targeting, make sure that you not only select “Sports” as your go-to category but also click on “Gambling.” With massive fixtures headed your way and a whole lot of hype around high-visibility events, millions of sports fans will be betting online across a host of different markets on upcoming fixtures. Make sure your campaigns are featured in both segments for higher returns. For example – promoting Casino through user interest targeting (Gambling + Sports).

Tackle High CPM Bids ⚡️

Sports are BIG business! And you’ve got a whole bunch of high-profile multi-million dollar events running for a short time, advertised by some of the biggest companies in the game. That being said, make sure you always STAND OUT from the crowd. 

Put down high CPM bids to secure the best possible traffic sources. During this season, there is an army of online advertisers competing for sports-related traffic, and the higher CPM bids tend to be noticed by traffic sources that are most likely to convert. So, put a little extra down and get a lot more back when advertising the build-up and kick-off to big sporting events.

Target the right sports Geo’s 📍

The above-scheduled events will have the highest impact in the United States and Canada, but the love of sports is universal. With roaring fans from Japan to Brazil and everywhere in between, you can never go wrong targeting your offers to a global sporting community. Here out our picks for the top-performing sporting Geos. 

🇨🇦 Canada 

🇹🇷 Turkey

🇧🇷 Brazil

🇩🇪 Germany

🇫🇷 France

🇵🇹 Portugal

🇮🇹 Italy

🇦🇷 Argentina

🇲🇦 Morocco

🇪🇸 Spain

🇵🇱 Poland

🇦🇺 Australia

The takeaway? Come in strong! Target your traffic WORLDWIDE to global appeal as much as you can and, unless your offer is very much country-specific, keep the universal appeal as much as you can. 

Pro Tip: You can NEVER go wrong with a global campaign geared to pay-per-click UFC Fights. These matches are massive in popularity and carry weight across the entire globe, especially when you’ve got two heavyweights drawing blood in the octagon!

Sports keywords make the campaign! 🏅

Using the right URL keywords is a surefire way to bring in the crowd. Your ads will rank better on the whole and take top positions on sports-related websites and other traffic-generating sources. Make sure you’re always targeting the same keywords that website owners and publishers would use, e.g., UFC, Champions League Football, NBA playoffs, NHL Final, etc. Going back to regions, if you’re targeting a few specific GEOs in your campaign, make sure to localize your content and campaign creatives to better resonate with your intended audience if you can use some sports-related jargon that specifically applies. To the region you’re targeting, all the better!

And, last but not least, make sure you’re always using the…

Top Sports-related Ad Formats 🖥

Some Ad formats work better than others when it comes to generating mass exposure in sports-related traffic circles. While Display Ads are still as effective as they ever were, our top pick for Match Season includes…

Pop-Under ads 

These ads are subtle and effective in their execution, appearing as a new tab below the active browser and displaying when your audience is done completing their onsite task. They stay top of mind and bring in your readership with a quick, easy-to-grasp, and visually appealing display. For more insights, check out 5 Reasons Why Pop-Unders are so Effective.

In-Page Push

This leading format is the 2.0 version of the original Push Notification. These alert-like ads are meant to mimic the traditional push notification in their design. They are well-targeted, engaging, and less intrusive to the overall end-user experience. Increasing the Advertisers’ onsite performance and the Publishers’ earnings, blending high-quality UX with market-tested returns.

Interstitial Ads

With wide-reaching content and visuals as well as a 5-second delay in exit times, an Interstitial Ads countdown window ensures your campaign content will always be seen. Plus, the formats contain space for eye-catching visuals displayed on larger browser windows. Find out why Interstitials are the Ultimate Cure for Banner Blindness.

Publisher Tips for this upcoming sports season 💛

Keep your Adcash tags live 📲

A big need to know for hosting high-quality ads on your website is creating tags on your live site. When setting up requirements on the DSP platform, you’ll need to copy the Adcash Javascript code to your website. Once done, this will ensure the right tags are always showing behind the scenes and that everything has been added successfully to your website. For more information, head over here and check out the full support article. 

Use the most relevant URL keywords ⌨️

You’re going to want to make sure you’re bringing home a constant influx of traffic and an endless avalanche of sports campaigns with the right keyword optimization. Sports-related keywords will ensure that you’re always hosting targeted, high-quality ads for all your incoming web traffic. With the right keyword strategy in place and done to maximum effect, the chances for increased earnings stand at an all-time high.

In essence, it’s better to use only relevant and applicable keywords for an event. To make it simple: If you are talking about soccer ( ⚽️ ), you should only use football, soccer-related  ( 🥅 ⚽️ ) keywords, not any other sports ( 🚫 🥊 🏊‍♂️ 🏀 )! What would also make your ads more targeted – is the usage of team names and/or players. To sum up: more specifications!


Work with one ad provider 🥇

The line tends to blur the more providers you work with. Why? Well, everyone has their own style and way of pushing out sports traffic. If you end up using too many ad networks, you risk compromising your end-user experience with a strange mishmash of ads from every corner of the digital sphere. Rather stick with one and keep the quality of your website traffic fine-tuned at all times. 

Here at Adcash, we make it our daily mission to provide clean, transparent, and direct traffic sources, ensuring the highest ad quality and top-notch user experience with every campaign. 

Here, just to show you a bit of the inside perk of working with Adcash… 😌 You can easily spot the difference in earnings between these two tables presented below, right? Well, cards on the table – on the left you could see the table, where Adcash is used exclusively, and on the one on the right – the website is shared with 2/3 of networks. The differences can be seen by the naked eye; in the user RPM on the top GEO with 3x more, moreover following geos has around 2x higher RPM! So make your choice smartly guys!
