This capability provides extensive reach to a targeted audience on the Internet that is most likely to purchase travel to Palm Beach County. Consumers were directed to specific pages within the CVB’s site that converted to bookings for many of the member hotels.”  Between December 2009 and June 2010, Cendyn’s Palm Beach County campaign produced more than 74 million website impressions.  Further leveraging the PBC program, Cendyn also developed unique campaigns for many of the member properties to convert additional traffic.Cendyn’s three-tiered campaign for Palm Beach County CVB:

  • Tier I – Create awareness of PBC with rich-media display ads focused on leisure, eco-adventure travel and group business.
  • Tier II – Raise awareness and stimulate business with retail/hotel promotions for rebates and discounts.
  • Tier III – Focus on cooperative marketing programs for 50 co-branded CVB member hotels that include ‘book-it’ links to each hotel.

“Summer is a low season for Florida and our campaign was a very effective way for area hotels to pick up business in cooperation with the CVB,” said Deyo.  Participating hotels included The Breakers, PGA National Resort, and The Boca Raton Resort and Club.  “Palm Beach County CVB and its member hotels are the beneficiaries of the recent advances in Internet Marketing. At Cendyn, we are continuously focused on leveraging the latest in technology and the Internet to produce bottom line results for our clients.
