metapeople – part of NetBooster Group – secures a 12 month contract with Center Parcs after a successful online video test 

metapeople Duisburg, part of NetBooster Group ((FR0000079683 – ALNBT – PEA-PME eligible), a leading independent European agency in digital performance marketing, started a display performance campaign for Center Parcs Europe to increase brand awareness and early bookings for summer holidays. The trial run has been very successful, leading to the European specialist for family trips, to sign a one-year contract with metapeople to manage their programmatic Display campaigns.

For the first time, Center Parcs supported by metapeople, started a wide-ranging display-strategy in Belgium, the Netherlands and Germany focusing on programmatic display and video, which ran simultaneously to a TV campaign to advertise their 25 holiday parks – 21 Center Parcs and 4 Sunparks.  The display campaign included rich media formats as well as Facebook Ads with emphasis on a detailed analysis as well as on an optimization by offsite-and onsite data.

As part of NetBooster Group, metapeople were selected by Center Parks due to to their presence in the European performance market. “Their profound know-how in DoubleClick’s Online Marketing Suite especially convinced us”, says Claudia Bergholz, group online media specialist at Center Parcs Europe in Brussels. “But also the great and smooth support has to be emphasised. From planning and realizing the campaign to presenting the results, everything was easy and on high standards, which also includes the quick adjustment of the reporting’s for this first test.”

metapeople used Google Analytics Premium together with the Digital Marketing Suite by DoubleClick, to build  a coherent attribution-model for display-branding-campaigns for Center Parcs Europe. “Our display-strategy, including Social-Ads for Facebook, is based on defined KPIs and is perfectly apposite”, explains Claudia Bergholz.

The TV-spots were supported by online-videos with a length of 20 or 30 seconds to increase the brand awareness. “We wanted to gain the maximum range with a high view or completion rate with the budget we had”, underlines Barbara Kochniss, metapeople’s Head of Media.

 “metapeople implemented our strategy with well-balanced media plans in the different countries”, Claudia Bergholz summarizes the results of the first test. Further joint activities will follow as metapeople and Center Parcs have signed a one-year contract after the success of their display campaign.
