A big 4 communications company was looking for ways to connect with potential consumers who could switch phone carriers. They’ve been use to the traditional digital advertising channels including Google Adwords, SEO, Facebook Advertising and many of their own traditional offline marketing mediums.
It was a more complicated and intricate approach to digital marketing as they needed to utilize this effort to drive foot traffic to all of their stores, while reaching wireless carrier purchasers NOT after they already bought a phone or coverage, but before they bought coverage. After learning about programmatic display and geofencing marketing, the communications company decided to test the waters with Propellant Media.
During the course of 12 months, our team built hyper local and granular targeting campaigns focused on events the company was sponsoring as well as ongoing geofencing campaigns in order drive foot traffic to their stores around the country.
In addition to geofencing the said events as well as competitor locations, our team built what’s called conversion zones around their individual stores in order to measure foot traffic and those who saw and clicked on their ads and then visited their stores afterward.
Over the course of 12 months, our team drove 2.3 million impressions, 3,500 clicks to their ads, and 0.15% click through rate (above the industry average of 0.10% CTR).
More importantly, our team helped drive over 3,100 new people to their stores over the course of 8 months.
In addition to measuring foot traffic to the wireless carrier’s stores, we were also able to measure over foot traffic lift to their store locations. The carrier experienced a 70% lift in foot traffic when you compare those who did not see the wireless carrier’s ads versus those who did see the carrier’s ads.
