Customer Success: Tulalip

This Seattle-based resort and casino came to SteelHouse with the goal of expanding their reach and driving awareness among a key audience.

Tulalip

Tulalip Resort Casino was searching for a way to reach a key, local audience. Seeking to connect with 35+ year old casino enthusiasts with a penchant for luxury hotels and in the market to travel, they turned to Connected TV advertising to leverage precise targeting to find their desired audience.

They saw a measurable impact on site traffic thanks to their Connected TV campaign, driving an impressive 1.4% site visit rate, with an average cost-per-visit of only $10.91. These numbers are notable for two major reasons; the visit rate exceeds the typical rate for display campaigns, and site traffic was trackable, documented, and measured.

This campaign’s performance blew us away, driving a site visit rate higher than what we see with display. Being able to combine TV advertising with the precision of digital is a huge advantage, and it’s exciting to know we can run an ad on TV and measure its actual performance. Thank you SteelHouse!

Good question, there are several differences between SteelHouse Performance TV and paid search advertising. Let us break it down for you.

Targeting
SteelHouse Performance TV advertising works by allowing you to select your target audience with either 1st or 3rd party audience data while paid search primarily works by selecting keywords that your target audience may be searching for on search engines. Because it may be difficult to select the right keywords that may convert, selecting an audience using buyer intent signals and previous behavior patterns using SteelHouse Performance TV advertising may help compliment your media mix.

Cost
Traditionally, paid search visit costs are calculated using a cost per click metric, while a visit from a viewer who saw your SteelHouse Performance TV ad then visits your website is called a “site visit.” Terminology aside, these two metrics are most comparable to each other and SteelHouse Performance TV has been able to deliver a cost per site visit comparable to that of non-branded paid search, roughly within the range of $2 – $12.

Media and Delivery
Paid search is typically displayed as a plain text ad to users who searched using a search term that you are bidding on. The text ad is then served on search engine results above and below other paid and organic listings.

On the other hand, SteelHouse Performance TV advertising brings your messaging to life through the use of your own video creatives. Your TV commercial is unskippable and streamed on premium networks and devices while users are engaged in viewing their favorite shows and movies.

Reporting
With SteelHouse Performance TV, you are able to report on your advertising similar to paid search reporting. You can see metrics such as impressions, site visit rate, cost, revenue, and ROAS on the network and audience level. All of this data is available in both Google Analytics and on the SteelHouse Advertising Suite. The ability to track the effect and performance of TV commercials is now available with SteelHouse Performance TV.

There are two terms that refer to the same thing: OTT and Connected TV. OTT is an older term and stands for Over The Top, meaning content doesn’t require a cable subscription, but rather goes “over the top” of a cable box and streams directly. Connected TV acts the same, thus they are different terms for the same thing. Learn more about our OTT advertising here.
