Fortnite’s Jumpman Campaign Is A Slam Dunk

Fortnite has continued to have immense popularity in the gaming industry and continued to find unique ways to deliver exciting updates to fans. The online video game developed by Epic Games has had a number of collaborations that have proven to be huge successes for all parties involved, such as the NFL collaboration in the Fall of 2018. On Monday, the game’s official twitter account hinted at an upcoming collaboration with an emoji-filled tweet.

The following day they released an update which featured the Downtown Drop LTM by Jordan, which let players rock Nike’s and gave players a variety of other new options in the game.

They continued to promote the collaboration throughout the day with the hashtag #FortniteXJumpman and showcased new Emote’s, Outfits, and challenge pack available with the Hang Time Bundle.

Social influencers in the gaming world like @blakeir, @TheGrefgYT, @JeffEisenband and @Erinasimon immediately began tweeting about the release, which only increased awareness and hype for the collab.

As you would expect, the collaboration saw a massive response on social, generating exposure for both the game and the brand. These types of brand partnerships and sponsorship activations can generate major awareness for brands and are very popular in the world of sports marketing.  To understand the amount of social media activity the collaboration generated for Jumpman, we tracked mentions and posts featuring the Jumpman official handle and the hashtag for the campaign.
