In 2013, Visit Tampa Bay underwent a massive rebranding effort. Its "Treasure Awaits" tagline and accompanying visual elements embodied the bold attitude of the city. The bureau also sought to more clearly define its target audiences into families, couples, "girl getaways," and "guy getaways," with appropriate messaging for each.

The Solution

Already the publisher of its Official Visitors Guide and manager of its annual search engine marketing efforts, Madden Media was the natural fit to bring all elements together and oversee Tampa Bay's 2014-2015 seasonal campaign initiatives.

By distributing client-provided content and promoting sweepstakes on social media, Madden Media drove new traffic to, increased conversions of the Visitors Guide app, and provided the client with new insights about its target audiences.
