Bring in More Crowds and Boost Ticket Sales With Contextual and Demographic Targeting

Programmatic ads provide more metrics and data insights than any other form of media. Tapping into this data can greatly help you uncover insights that aren’t always intuitive, and improve the performance of your next campaign. These insights help identify your precise target audience, which allows you to customize content and ad campaigns for optimal performance. Our programmatic ad technology strategically reaches and personalizes the ad experience by targeting prospective purchasers who are (but not limited to):

  • Researching local things to do (such as concerts, festivals, sporting events, etc.)
  • Fans of local sports teams or performing artists
  • Have a frequent/previous purchase history of local events, games, concerts, etc.
  • Visiting websites of the team, band or event, as well as competitors’ websites
  • Who have an income and/or credit score above a minimum threshold

Takeaways From Education Campaigns

  • Along with e-commerce and travel, events/sports/ticket-based campaigns require the least amount of touchpoints to convert of all other verticals. Why? Immediate gratification.
  • If you know that a majority of your users are going to make a decision in less than 5 touchpoints, make sure that it’s you–and not your competitor–that makes the strongest first impression with the best offer. Pull at the consumer’s heart strings and make them want your product or service with an offer they can’t refuse. In other words, the creative you’re using matters!

Programmatic In Motion

Genius Monkey was recently tested with an American professional sports team. They were seeking an improvement in the effectiveness and performance of their current digital display marketing platform. They indicated that their ultimate goal was to drive up high-quality online conversions, thereby boosting ticket sales.

The Genius Monkey marketing team assembled to create an effective strategy to bring the client’s desired improvements to fruition. Our approach was to strategically place targeted display, social and native ads, while incorporating effective “And-Or-If” statements towards a specifically targeted crowd.

Genius Monkey’s efforts helped by boosting an astounding 572% return on ad spend, which was between 200-300% higher than the ROAS achieved by the existing competitors/client partners!
