A fantasy sports game on itself is a content gold mine and traffic driver. But how can you promote your fantasy sports game? Check out these content marketing examples.

1. How it works video

An explainer video is one of the must have pieces of content to promote the launch of your fantasy game. It’s a great way to immediately set a mood, communicate your USPs and trigger users to sign up. An effective “How it works” video is 1 minute or less to force you to quickly get to the point. Broadcasting rights holders should definitely make a shortened (less than 15s) version, called a bumper or billboard. This short video is ideally shown in commercial breaks during game previews, halftime shows and post-match analysis.

2. Team of the Week

A Team of the Week is a cornerstone of your content strategy. You should make a Team of the Weeks for every fantasy gameweek. Share it on your social media channels and make sure to tag players or clubs to increase your audience.
