Promoting new store locations of the brand.
Awareness: to announce the arrival of newer retail sites in their respected DMA.
We ran two separate flights for the specific Grand Opening campaigns. Two weeks prior to the launch of the new retail location we ran standard on-site and high-impact ad units promoting the soon-to-open store on a hyper-local level. Specifically, the ad units targeted local news, broadcast, and radio sites. The second flight was a hard push two weeks from the day the store opened in order to continue to push awareness of the new location and increase foot traffic. For each flight, we had different creatives. The creatives pertained to what they were advertising prior to the opening and what they focused on after the store finally opened. Our longstanding relationships with local news publishers facilitate competitive pricing and premium placements on these
news outlets to reach an engaged audience. We utilized a dual flight (pre and post launch campaign) to continue to spread awareness for the overall brand and the specific new retail location even after the opening.
This company saw a high CTR on all of the campaigns we have placed for them and we continue to partner with them each time a new location opens up because of our previous success.
