For one of our clients ski holidays are an incredibly important part of their business. Transavia asked DQ&A to help them take advantage of the unpredictability of snowfall in top ski destinations where they fly. Traditional programmatic display campaigns are distributed regardless of weather conditions. We were searching for an innovative way to entice the consumer with competitive pricing and the guarantee of snowfall.
Our goal was to use technological advancements that allowed us to include snow heights at popular ski areas across Europe in our display ads, all in real time. With the help of weather specialist, Meteovista, we created a solution for Transavia that delivers real value to their travel customers.
When fresh snow falls, Meteovista tracks the height in real time. The weather data is sent to Meteovista in the Netherlands, which is then shared with us, and entered into our database. This triggers the campaign across every platform (Display, Premium Display, Facebook and Digital-out-of-Home). Creatives are adjusted to show current snow height and indicate fresh snowfall.
In the end, everything comes together. Ads are distributed at the right time across all channels with consistent and accurate messaging. This campaign has seen tremendous success improving customer loyalty and increasing ROI by 72%.
