The opportunity

Chevrolet (@ChevroletCanada), a partner of CTV’s “The Amazing Race Canada” (@AmazingRaceCDA), wanted to drive awareness of its sponsorship of the hit show. Chevrolet’s goal was to strengthen its association with “The Amazing Race Canada,” and it knew that an exciting, engaging campaign would be crucial to capturing the audience’s attention. Chevrolet accomplished this by bringing CTV viewers along for the ride, giving them the chance to compete in their own race on Twitter.

The strategy

#TheChevroletRace invited Canadians to participate in a weekly contest that ran concurrently with the show. With the chance to win the all-new Chevrolet Traverse, Chevrolet connected with its target audience using Promoted Tweets to announce #TheChevroletRace and remind fans to tune in. Every Tuesday night when “The Amazing Race Canada” aired, Chevrolet used TV spots on Bell Media to drive viewers to Twitter to enter. Once on Twitter and reaching the audience of @AmazingRaceCDA, Chevrolet engaged users with weekly quiz questions in the form of a Conversational Card. Every right answer brought fans one step closer to being named the ultimate #TheChevroletRace winner. Chevrolet further doubled down with Sponsored Moments recapping every episode to engage fans and drive brand mentions.
