The Best Destination Marketing Solution

Leveraging data to provide the value your stakeholders understand

Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) are the heartbeat of a destination. You’re great marketers and extremely knowledgeable about the destination. Unfortunately, there’s always someone questioning the value of what you bring to the table. Why?

Well, the KPIs often used to communicate your value are soft metrics: clicks, likes, impressions, views, to name but a few. Those KPIs don’t communicate value to stakeholders because they think in terms of revenue, room nights, bookings and ADR. For a long time DMOs have been hindered because they haven’t had access to that kind of information.

This is where Adara comes in. Adara is the largest data consortium (data co-op or data partnership) of travel loyalty and reward data on the planet. 

Adara is trusted by more than 300 global data partners. This includes data sourced from travel, finance, real estate, events, and other consumer companies. But what we do with the data is enable you to activate it via media campaigns and measure it for revenue reports — and we do it in a privacy-compliant way that enables you to operate with confidence.

Our customers typically count on us to answer questions like:

How much revenue did my digital campaign generate?

While in market, what do our visitors spend the most on?

Which of my marketing efforts drove the highest ADR?

What is the credit card spending associated with our recent campaign?

How many room nights were we able to observe this summer?

What was the average transaction amount for visitors that spent at our top attractions within the market?

How is our market being impacted by recent natural disasters, pandemics and social unrest in our community?

What is our share of visitor spending compared to a neighboring market or competitive set?

What feeder markets are growing or recovering quicker
han others?

Who should I target for my next campaign?

On top of this, customers often look to us for help with the following use cases:

Target or provide audiences of travelers that are actively searching for your destination, while also searching for your competitor(s).

Target or provide audiences of travelers that are actively searching for your competitor(s).

Target or provide audiences of travelers that have a high net worth and plenty of equity in their home.

Provide audiences of travelers with a high TVS (Traveler Value Score, like a travel credit score), narrowing their marketing to users who spend more, stay longer and travel often.

When we say searching, we don’t mean a Google search (although we can do that). We mean getting your message in front of users that are actively entering check-in and check-out dates, departure and arrival destinations, etc. This data can be leveraged in amazing ways to empower the destination to do what it does best. Tell stories to people who want to hear and experience them.
