JNS Next began a partnership with the Palm Springs Bureau of Tourism in 2009. The partnership has grown exponentially over the past ten years, responding to changes in the media space. JNS Next recently developed a marketing campaign for a post-COVID-19 launch. The focus will include the drive market, with specific messaging targeting 4 different personas identified through extensive research. JNS Next was tasked to develop brand messaging, design and a strategic marketing plan, as well as execution to reach consumers. After the research phase, JNS Next developed mood boards and campaign concepts prior to implementation across all channels. The final step was a brand campaign book, and implementation across partner materials. The campaign is being implemented across all communications channels including print, digital, billboard, television, social media, website and more.
Through carefully crafted words and bold visuals, we launched the Hello Palm Springs Campaign Concept where we tapped into what people really want at the moment (whether it’s escape, pleasure, fun or sun) while showcasing Palm Springs as the answer to that desire. Utilizing destination research and data on visitor trends, the campaign is focused on four targeted personas fitting visitor profiles in the drive market. This campaign took a fun and fresh approach through a medley of bold visual statements, and JNS Next carried it through a multitude of platforms, including social media.
The campaign generated 15,000 new social media followers and over 16 million impressions in the first 6 months
The destination’s campaign launched in June 2020, targeting the drive market consumers, and expanding to flight markets in late 2020/early 2021. The referenced campaign was developed for leisure travel, getting into the minds of visitors before they visit.
