Clink IT Solutions Team

Case Study:
The Crowd's Line Application Suite

Background

The Crowd’s Line utilizes the power of the crowd to predict game outcomes.

And the crowd knows best as fan sourced predictions have been shown to be the most accurate way to forecast winners.

Every time you submit a score you contribute to the overall community to yield the most powerful data set.

“The Crowd’s Line” (“TCL”) set of apps are designed to aggregate and make sense of the crowd’s thoughts in real-time by using proprietary crowdsourcing techniques for the benefit of its members.

Problem

The “Morning Line” for all sports and large events should be set by the public. With TCL, they were looking for a way for every fan to have a voice on the sports and events they care about most.

Results

With the creation of the TCL apps and widgets, there is now a concrete way to crowdsource gaming predictions with a solid foundation. After some months from initial app deployment, Clink has helped TCL deliver the following results:

    SCALE
  • 5.5M Total Views
  • 1M Predictions
  • ENGAGEMENT
  • 15% of users that viewed the page made score predictions
  • REGISTRATION AND CONTESTS
  • 50% of blog visitors registered for a contest
  • DATA CAPTURE
  • 80% of predictors answered additional questions
  • SECURED PARTNERSHIPS WITH
  • Fox Sports
  • CBS
  • SB Nation
  • Rant Sports
  • Statistics as of Jan 2016.

Why They Love Us
