With a small budget for paid digital advertising, marketing focused on finding new audiences while bolstering the festival’s presence in top funnel awareness. Using a diversified social media marketing campaign, the campaign targeted demographic verticals for sets of events that would appeal to these new audiences. Using both branded and nonbranded key words, the Tribeca SEM campaign sought to capture the interests of a broad set of searching consumers.
Launching a new TikTok account three months before the festival, the team produced a TikTok video that received over 6.5 million views and created a cumulative 15 million total video views through out the festival. The team increased engagement on Instagram from previous the festival by 314% and boasted a cross-platform reach of 2.7billion.
