How we did it

Development

For this campaign, our research team analyzed every Olympic athlete competing in the games who was born in a different country than the one they were representing. The target audience of the campaign was very broad, so it was important to find data that would catch the attention of a wide variety of journalists and readers internationally. Creating this new and under-researched angle was essential for setting this content apart from other pieces of news.

Execution

Members of our content marketing team spent an unprecedented amount of hours researching every olympic athlete with dual citizenship to find as much relevant data on them as possible. Once their research was complete, the content team partnered with our graphic design team to create dynamic images to display the information they found in a straightforward way. Our outreach had to be timed just right to get attention during Olympic coverage. We started pitching a few weeks before it began to capitalize on the growing buzz but not get overshadowed by the day-to-day reporting of the results and events.
