DraftKings bet on Bynder to scale content experiences

As the only US-based, vertically integrated sports betting operator, DraftKings believes that life’s more alive with skin in the game and is committed to responsibly creating the world’s favourite games and experiences.

Background

DraftKings depends on a multichannel marketing approach to appeal to an avid fanbase of global sports enthusiasts – particularly on mobile. Their services include daily fantasy sports, sports betting, iGaming, and an NFT marketplace – regularly partnering with the world’s most iconic sports institutions.

Challenge

As DraftKings looked to scale, managing marketing assets in Google Drive was becoming increasingly chaotic, and not search-friendly, and they simply didn’t have the control they needed over who was using valuable brand assets. With so many different channels and partners involved in their marketing strategy, they also needed a better way to centralize and communicate the DraftKings brand guidelines.

Solution

Bynder’s DAM suite and built-in Brand Guidelines module provided a single source of truth for DraftKings’ diverse range of finished marketing assets – tagged with relevant metadata to ensure quick and easy searching. By customizing user access rights to files, they have full control over how sensitive brand assets are seen and used. 

Situation

DraftKings and its in-house agencies were growing fast. It was vital that their multichannel approach was coupled with a consistent brand identity – especially when collaborating with a diverse network of globally-renowned sports partners to promote the brand.

In a nutshell, DraftKings needed a solution that could:

  • Enable tagging of brand assets with relevant metadata to ensure quick, intuitive searching and better visibility of campaigns and creative assets to the company at large.
  • Customise access and user rights for different stakeholders, providing more brand security, and less risk of the wrong assets being used or published.
  • Provide a dynamic digital home for their brand guidelines, reflecting their most up-to-date brand identity that’s easily shareable with their global network of agencies and partners.
