Relevance is paramount
This innovative form of offering relevant adverts is well suited to the trend Transavia has applied recently in its campaigns, whereby adverts are more relevant to the consumer. As examples, last winter Transavia launched a campaign in which the adverts they broadcast were adapted on the basis of current levels of snowfall at one of the destinations. The company also previously ran a campaign during which the actual number of available seats was continually relayed in the adverts.
Nick Brandts, Base Lead Direct for Transavia: “With these adverts we of course want to reach the right target audience, at the right time, with the right content, as far as possible. Partnering with OMS and NMPi means we can extensively test the possibilities of programmatic audio. This channel is well suited to our strategy, in which we want to improve our response to consumer preferences. Consumers can see current data within banners, such as the number of available seats and current available price. We assume the increased relevancy of these adverts will lead to an improved user experience for consumers.”
Joris van der Pol, General Manager of OMS: “The digital audio market is on the rise and so in July this year, we introduced this new form of media use via OMX, the digital branch of OMS. We are now launching the first campaign with Transavia. Transavia’s innovative mind-set helps us to further strengthen the use of media within digital radio.”
Gerard Moussault, NMPi Managing Director for Benelux: “The possibility of programmatic narrowcasting (e.g. through geotargeting) has been around for a while. It is now possible to use programmatic audio to actually communicate one-on-one with your target audience and we have thus taken the step towards programmatic unicasting. This offers many interesting opportunities to advertisers; that is clear from this campaign with Transavia!”
