Update: Priceline.com promotes COO to Interim CEO
Subject: TV, digital, mobile, outdoor, radio, sponsorship
Company: Priceline, online travel company that's part of the Priceline Group, which also operates Booking.com and Kayak.com
Update 6/6: The online travel site has promoted its COO Brett Keller, to interim CEO, where he will take over for previous CEO Paul Hennessy, who resigned from his position to pursue an eCommerce opportunity. This comes only shortly after the release of the company’s first campaign with its new AOR (more below), which aimed to reach customers’ traveling needs on a more relatable field. Keep in mind that prior to serving as the COO, Keller was the company’s CMO for 14 years, where he helped Priceline grow and evolve its brand’s product and go-to-market strategies for its digital offerings.
Therefore, with a marketing veteran like Keller now leading the company, expect marketing to weigh a little heavier in decisions and for digital to take up a larger portion of spending moving forward. Continue pitching ad dollars tied to Q2, Q3 travel season. Family and/or millennial focused sellers should still have the advantage here.
Below originally published 3/7
Opportunity: Priceline has launched its first campaign from new AOR here). The ”Whatever's on the line, Priceline” campaign (one of the ad shown above) is part of the company's new strategy to help customers connect with deals faster and easier than ever before.
The difference between this campaign and the last is that “whatever's on the line” is supposed to focus on everyday trends, and being able to easily book trips to places that people more commonly go. CEO Paul Hennessy said that the campaign should identify with travelers taking trips to places like Rome, Georgia to visit family versus extravagant trips to places such as Rome, Italy.
Therefore, family and/or millennial focused sellers should be all over this ahead of peak travel season. Look for ad dollars tied to Q2, as this is the time when travel sites advertise the most. It's likely that the site is analyzing initial campaign buys before making adjustments before a larger Q2 launch, similar to rival Travelocity (research here).
Media Spend: Priceline spent $98 million on measured media in the first three quarters in 2015 and $129 million for all of 2014. Both years a large portion of the spend went to broadcast, while the rest of it was distributed mainly to digital.
TV Breakdown: The travel site has already spent $8 million on national TV ads since the first commercial debuted Feb. 9. This is up almost $3 million compared to the same period in 2015, iSpot reports.
Digital Breakdown: According to Moat, so far in 2016, Priceline has already run 66 standard display ads on 687 publishers, 9% placed site direct versus programmatic. Ads are running on news and entertainment sites.
Top publishers for the standard ads included yelp.com, rebategiant.com, lowes.com and daveramsey.com, and top publishers for video include cbsnews.com, cbs.com and metacritic.com.
