THE CHALLENGE:

Visit North Carolina wanted to promote interest in local attractions for both in-state and out-of-state audiences. To track success, they measured the cost of site arrivals (CPA) and arrivals per thousand (APM), as validated by third-party measurement vendor Arrivalist.

THE SOLUTION:

To reach their target audience at scale, Visit NC employed Quantcast’s Targeted Prospecting Audience. Based on key travel intent indicators, including website engagement on restaurant and local attraction pages, they discovered prospective customers and reached them at the start of their journey.

THE SECRET INGREDIENT:

The behavioral insights of Quantcast’s Live Audience platform provided Visit NC with a unique understanding of each travel persona. Not only were they able to identify and segment their tourism audiences based on activity interest, but they could apply these learnings to reach potential visitors across the United States and drive new tourism to North Carolina.

THE RESULTS:

As the top-performing partner for Visit NC, Quantcast drove a 35% lower CPA, 11.5x more arrivals per thousand and a 37% lower bounce rate with qualified traffic than the second-best-performing DSP on the plan.

HIGHLIGHTS:

· 11.5x more arrivals per thousand
· 35% lower CPA
· $8 CPA
