The client's goal was to create awareness for their new brand in Houston and Atlanta, increase user sign-ups, and ultimately drive visits to local brand locations. The mobilads team provided an exterior activation with wrapped rideshare vehicles, as well as interior activation using headrest organizers with a call to action for passengers to sign up. Finally, we provided retargeting via paid-display in order to amplify the impact of the campaign on people who saw the ad on a car.
Those exposed to the rideshare campaign had a 2.75x higher visitation rate to brand stores compared to those that did not see an ad.
The retargeting campaign delivered a 2.5x better click-through rate from exposed impressions compared to those retargeted from search.
We analyzed over a dozen demographic and behavioral features for both the audience in Atlanta and in Houston in order to highlight major differences. The largest difference was in the size of the native Spanish speaking population (a 3x higher ratio), and subsequently the number of speakers categorizing themselves as less than "very good" at English. This is evidence that the messages impact could have been reduced in Houston due to this language barrier.
VISITATION RATE OF EXPOSED AND UNEXPOSED
PERFORMANCE BY AD CAMPAIGN
Using our proprietary data attribution model we combined GPS coordinates from rideshare vehicles, store visits and mobile device IDs to determine people that were exposed to the ad and visited a brand store in Atlanta and Houston.
We then compared the differences between the exposed visitation rate of the store locations to the unexposed visitation rate.
Then, to measure the effectiveness of the retargeting campaign, we compared the click-through-rate for device IDs that were exposed versus IDs found through search retargeting.
After observing and modeling the campaign data we established, with greater than 99% confidence, that the exposed audience had a higher visitation rate than the unexposed audience.
