Strategy

Strategy

Our strategy to achieve ECGC’s goal was powered by a mixture of social media & paid advertising, email marketing, and Google Adwords. The campaign directed traffic to customized landing pages for each target audience. Argyle developed and implemented a dual strategy of targeted search and display ads. The ads promoted the event on high-traffic casino and gaming sites, which helped develop over 1 million impressions. We also ran targeted Facebook, Twitter, and Linkedin ads to ECGC Facebook page affiliates and specifically targeted Facebook users. We created colorful promotional graphics and eye-catching targeted e-mails to attract and inform audiences of the event. 

Additionally, Argyle directed a video crew to film the conference. The video crew conducted interviews with prominent attendees, creating original promotional content for future ECGC campaigns and solidifying the new “fun” branding of the conference.
