  • Berge & Meer - Successful online retargeting of a reactive TV segment

Context of the campaign

Berge & Meer offers high quality travels for adventurous clients.

From the end of December 2017 until the end of January 2018, Berge & Meer launched a TV campaign with as a major target the 50-59 year-olds. The campaign advertised several travel destinations and experiences on a large mix of public, private and pay TV channels. During the following February, a sponsoring campaign was surrounding a travel TV program with additional classic TV-Spots around the transmission.



Objectives and Needs

Berge & Meer was looking for a partner who would be able to give them clear insights on the performance of the TV spots and the impact of the different creatives on their website. Based on those results, the client wanted to be able to optimize their future campaign and media plans.

  1. How many, but especially which website visitors are visiting the website following the airing of the TV spot?
  2. What is the detailed Customer Journey of those visitors?
  3. Comparison of the spot creatives and which interactions they entail
  4. Which investments are generating which revenue?
  5. Detailed advice & personalized reporting


Requirement Analysis

  • Detailed analysis of the client experience and the status quo (digital partners, website setup, historical traffic development)
  • Joint definition of the KPIs that must be evaluated as well as the touch points on the website and the creation of a client specific tagging
  • Advice concerning the use of the platform & interpretation of the results

More than measuring and analyzing the TV impact and performance of their campaign, the client was also interested in synchronizing their TV strategy with their online channels. Therefore, they chose Digital Follow-Up to increase the conversion rate and revenue through focused retargeting of the TV-engaged visitors who reacted to a given TV spot - via our partner Criteo.

Analysis of the global Effect

The global effect of the TV campaign on the website will be measured on top of the direct effect. Since the products were a higher priced “investment” with a resulting longer decision making, the client behavior could also be observed weeks after the first contact.
