Expedia Media Solutions, the advertising sales division of Expedia, Inc., has introduced a new behavioral marketing product called PassportAds(TM), which gives advertisers an effective way to reach in-market travel consumers throughout the trip purchasing lifecycle.
Expedia.com(R) reaches 50 percent of all online travel shoppers, allowing PassportAds to deliver unparalleled reach to this highly qualified audience across the Internet using anonymous visitor data(1).
The first program of its kind in travel advertising, PassportAds anonymously identifies in-market travelers through "explicit" search behaviors, such as a search for hotels in Hawaii.
PassportAds then uses this anonymous search data to build segments of highly qualified travel shoppers, and targets them with controlled frequency throughout their decision-making lifecycle. Unlike typical contextual buys, advertisers can appear in front of these audience segments anywhere online.
"PassportAds offers unrivaled reach to consumers actively in-market for travel. Now advertisers can create highly tailored messages that target travelers during the entire vacation planning and booking process and throughout the entire online experience - from reading the news to checking their weather forecast or shopping for clothes," said Doug Miller, vice president of Global Media Solutions, Expedia.
"We're focused on offering clients the ability to deliver behaviorally and contextually relevant advertising to the largest and most valuable audience of in-market travel consumers in the world."
