HAVRE DE GRACE, MD--(Marketwire - Sep 20, 2012) - Web Ad.vantage, digital marketing and advertising strategists, is pleased to announce it has been named as a 2012 Marketing Excellence Award winner by the Baltimore chapter of the American Marketing Association for its work on longstanding tourism client, Visit Baltimore. The award for "Best Local Web Advertising Campaign" was presented for Visit Baltimore's Spring/Summer 2011 online campaign. The campaign utilized a blend of digital marketing tactics including paid search advertising, email marketing, but most importantly, strategic sponsorships and niche ad buys including mobile that resulted in a 9% visitor increase to Baltimore.org and an 884% increase in conversions.
"Strategic thinking is what really sets our agency apart," said Hollis Thomases, Web Ad.vantage Founder & CEO. "For this campaign, we capitalized on niche media placements outside of standard ad network banner buys that enabled a limited marketing budget to work effectively and efficiently to meet our client's goals. Visit Baltimore has repeatedly said that it's this kind of creative thinking and planning that leads them to continue to partner with Web Ad.vantage."
