Tipico: Harnessing AI to Win Ohio
W3 Winner | Marketing — Campaigns, Banner Display, Rich Media (GOLD) | Code and Theory
Tipico engaged Code and Theory as AOR to lead an integrated campaign to bring Tipico to market in one of the deep states of idiosyncratic fandom — Ohio. Armed with ambitious goals for awareness and acquisition, we tapped into LLMs using ChatGPT for persona development, saving us countless hours on audience research and helping us refine behavioral demographics details. We ultimately created and launched a campaign that spoke to Ohioans the same way they speak to each other. Working with multiple agency partners, we activated across our audience’s entire connected ecosystem, including digital, social, and traditional media along with the app itself.
The launch reached 57% of Tipico's 2023 acquisition target and soared to claim 32% share of voice in the Ohio market.
