Quantcast Helps Palms Casino Resort Drive Bookings

Objective:
As a leading luxury casino resort in the competitive Las Vegas hotel industry, the Palms Casino Resort was looking to increase the number of high-value bookings through its website while achieving the best possible efficiency for its media dollars. The Palms partnered with Quantcast for help in maximising both the effectiveness and scale of its display advertising investment.

Solution:
Using its own massive and proprietary data set, Quantcast modelled the media consumption behaviours of the consumers who were successfully booking on the Palms’ website and applied this data directly via real-time bidding to efficiently find and convert new customers across the web.

To significantly amplify the reach and immediacy of this unique approach, Quantcast then added Facebook Exchange (FBX) to identify ideal prospects among Facebook’s more than 140 million highly engaged US users and drive them through to purchase. Quantcast continually updated its models to reach the right users, at the right time and the right frequency across Facebook.

Quantcast’s real-time, data- driven approach helped us unlock the full potential of both the Facebook Exchange and standard display exchanges to efficiently drive new bookings.
