THE SOLUTION

Identify, target and reach multiple audiences

The Travel People used lastminute.com group’s wealth of data to identify four key relevant audience segments: the Culturally Curious, Empty Nesters, Couples and East Asia Interest (those who have already demonstrated interest in travelling to East Asian countries). From there, The Travel People were able to simultaneously target multiple audiences and optimise and refine the organisation’s ad strategy, based on performance.

THE RESULTS

The effectiveness

This type of targeting was used to increase the effectiveness of the campaign, and it worked: the Travel People increased click through rates by 30%. This successful result demonstrated how an advertiser targeting multiple audiences can use performance results to optimise campaigns for the most relevant audiences.
