Case Study: NHRA

NHRA increases Fan Engagement by 210% and Earned Media Value by 86% using Hookit’s Data

“Hookit has become an essential partner in updating our sponsorship strategy, teaching our teams and drivers best practices, and helping us drive more value for our sponsors.”
– Brad Gerber VP, Sales & Chief Development Officer @ NHRA

NHRA needed a way to accurately measure and report the Earned Media Value (EMV) generated on social media for series sponsors.

Taking a holistic approach to growing their impact for sponsors, NHRA and Hookit worked together throughout the 2017 race season to:

  • Track, measure, and value social media activity
  • Provide individual event reports with valuation reports for each sponsor
  • Create an improved social media strategy based on best practices
  • Present social media best practices to drivers and teams at a digital summit to maximize value for sponsors

During the first event of the 2018 season, NHRA, with their improved social media practices, saw the following results:

  • 86% increase in EMV for all sponsors compared to 2017’s season opening event
  • $426K EMV for series title sponsor Mello Yello, up 47% year over year
  • 210% increase fan engagement on event related posts
