How we did it.
Our collaboration with “Visit Isle of Wight” began in 2019, where we designed a comprehensive display advertising campaign to achieve their objectives. We initiated the campaign with a combination of high-impact banner ads strategically placed across various networks, aiming for broad reach and extensive visibility. These ads were part of our high-volume and mass coverage Run of Network (RON) campaign, ensuring a wide audience was exposed to the brand.
As the initial phase gained traction, we proceeded with implementing retargeting strategies to make the most out of the traffic directed to the “Visit Isle of Wight” website. By employing different angles of retargeting, we ensured that users who had previously visited the site continued to receive value from the campaign, enticing them to return and consider visiting the Isle of Wight.
