Judges praise Blis’ location-based insights as a clever strategy to understand target audiences.
Blis, the global pioneer in advanced location data technology, was today named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the Marketing Campaign of the Year – Culture & The Arts category in The 16th Annual American Business Awards®, the U.S.A.’s premier business awards program.
The winning campaign saw the use of Blis’ proprietary technology to create unique and relevant audience segments for a design studio client looking to reach a niche group with ads driving them to an upcoming design event. Blis then monitored the behavior of all exposed devices to the ads and tracked foot traffic to the client event.
In addition to driving awareness and foot traffic to the client event, there was also one main sponsor, an auto dealership. The client wanted to monitor subsequent foot traffic of the sponsors auto dealerships to showcase the impact the sponsorship had on the event attendees to the auto sponsor. This campaign not only exceeded the client’s goals, but also offered rich insights to help guide their overall marketing strategy.
Judges praised the campaign as “a clever strategy to understand the target markets and their access pathways” and a “great and original use of geo data and tracking.”
“We are honored to receive the Gold Stevie Award for our ability to target specific audience segments,” said Gil Larsen, VP, Americas at Blis. “Blis strongly believes that the ability to understand real world consumer behavior is best done through the power of location and movement data.”
