Research showed us why people often shared NBA-related content: competitiveness. Fans liked content that gave them bragging rights over rivals. Journalists were constantly writing about league tables and statistics, whether it was “most hoops scored” or most conceded. We set out to start new conversations.
It’s impossible to predict which team would finish first in the league, but we could show who was best based on cost and value. In alignment with the brand message of CheapTickets, we ranked teams in order, from cheapest to most expensive. Fans, the media and teams now had a fresh competitive angle – who is the cheapest team to support
