It's time for the Moneyball of destination marketing

March 9, 2016

 
Destination marketers are rising up. Or as some of them put it: geeking up.
 
They’re daring to bypass their ad agencies and parse big data to figure how to convert their relatively small marketing budgets into higher-spending visitors and fill off-season vacancy gaps. And they are pointing to proof that it’s paying off.
 
One of the leaders of this new DIY data-driven marketing movement, Matt Clement, marketing and partnership manager at the Convention and Visitor Bureau of Fort Worth, Texas. He summed it up the motivation for transition this way:
“My theory it is that I’d rather spend 20% of my budget on data and feel good about targeting the other 80%, than spend 100% blindly, not knowing if my media buys are doing anything – that would keep me up night.”

San Jose to track hundreds of thousands of cellphones during Super Bowl 50

January 21, 2016

It's the kind of high-tech study you might expect from Silicon Valley. San Jose, California, will be tracking hundreds of thousands of cellphones during Super Bowl 50 week, with the help of a startup called AirSage.
 
Football fans will be flooding into the San Francisco area during that time, and AirSage said it will be collecting and analyzing wireless signaling data for San Jose's Convention and Visitor's Bureau to help give the city a clearer idea of where fans stayed or visited while in the Bay Area, CBS San Francisco reports.

New Space Coast Tourism Campaign to Push Beach Nostalgia

January 21, 2016

Working with Nielsen and Airsage, which tracked more than 60,000 overnight visitors to the Space Coast, largely through their cell phone signal data, the Office of Tourism has zeroed in on specific groups of potential visitors. 
"Overall, the top segments visiting Brevard County are generally older," the Nielsen study found. "Eight of the top 10 segments are in the 'mature years' life stage group, with two in the 'family life' group. The 'younger years' life stage group only shows up sporadically in some area destinations/seasons."

Cellphone Signals Offer Massive Trove of Travel Data

January 14, 2015

 

govtech

 

Traffic planners, developers, and investors can use the data to figure out questions such as how many people who live in an affluent suburb are flocking to the new mall 15 miles away, and whether they’re avoiding an older, un-trendy rival mall.
 

Last year for the NCAA Final Four, the Dallas Convention and Visitors Bureau wanted to understand not only where fans were coming from to attend the basketball tournament, but how long they stayed in Dallas and whether they stopped at malls and other points of interest.

Because AirSage knows the home (or where the device seems to call home and sleeps on a daily basis) and its Census Block Group, it can infer demographic information (such as average household income) about the devices’ owners.

AirSage strips off personal data — “We don’t know its Tom’s phone,” said Andrea Moe, AirSage’s vice president of product management and marketing, “but we know it’s a device and it has a unique identifier.” She said the company does not look at individual devices but at large aggregations of data from many devices.

Drawing Transportation Planning Inferences from Big Data

September 2014

ENR got wind of the 2014 AirSage Annual Transportation Survey and included an article about it in their September issue.  
 
Exceprt from the article:
"The transportation studies the data analytics company, AirSage, can produce by drawing inferences from those “sightings” have attracted customers among transportation agencies, planners and developers who find the near real-time passive tracking of thousands of traveling devices can provide a very solid basis not only for management, but for anticipating trends and planning for the future.
 

"One offshoot of those relationships with transportation professionals is a survey that AirSage has conducted for the last two years now, asking them for their thoughts about their profession, technology, the transportation sector, and its future."

Rapid City Capitalizes on Mobile Device Data for Road Development Planning -- but also helps with Tourism

 

August 2014

The South Dakota news team at the Rapid City Journal ran a story on how mobile data helped the local Community Planning and Development Services Department prioritize their list of roadway improvement projects for the next 25 years.  
 
Because the data differentiates residents and visitors, the city was able to realize an influx of out-of-town travelers along the main tourism routes during the month of June. The ability to distinguish between locals and guests during tourism season provided the greatest difference for their street planning.  Because they were able to differentiate, the city was able to weigh traffic priorities by looking at the both the increase in travel during their summer tourism months and the roadways occupied by day-to-day resident traffic throughout the full year.  
 
"So we are able to determine trips throughout the region based on tourism," Harrington said. "That will help us in our decision-making and how to apply funding to our roadways."

New AirSage White Paper Examines Game-Changing Shift in Rural Transportation Planning

 

Unprecedented access to where and when populations travel in rural and non-urban areas delivers more accurate data with significantly reduced costs

 

August 2014


It’s not just country back roads and sprawling planned neighborhoods. Rural and non-urban transportation planners serve the complex travel needs of more than 59 million Americans. However, until recently, gathering accurate data about when and where people travel in these less-populated areas has been virtually impossible.

Today, digital technology, which provides actual location data rather than synthesized or borrowed models, is paving the way for the most sophisticated rural transportation plans the industry has seen.

The white paper:

  • Examines how mobility data from 600,000 mobile devices was used to calibrate the Triangle Regional Model (TRM).
  • Highlights the benefits of data fusion—combining mobility data with traditional research and U.S. Census information—to create more accurate and more detailed models.
  • Showcases how digital technologies can be used to validate data collected by traditional means.
  • Presents case study findings from four rural travel model projects that were created using mobility data.
  • Shares some of the surprising insights that mobility data provides, including resident vs. nonresident trips and carpooling trips vs. visitor trips.

In a recent study, Leta F. Huntsinger, PhD, PE, and Rick Donnelly, PhD, AICP, both with Parsons Brinckerhoff Systems Analysis Group described the benefits of passively collected cellular data as “...a low-cost option for travel model validation.”

Cell phone data tracks traffic on Bayway, Causeway

 

Kevin Harrison with The South Alabama Regional Planning Commission talks with Fox10 News about AirSage data collected for the I-10 toll bridge analysis

 

August 2014

AirSage captured and analyzed one month of data from more than 192,000 mobile devices over a relatively small network of 312 zones, covering 670 total miles of roadway. That data provided insights into 1.56 million total trips, with an average of 67 locations per device, per day.

.

 

 

“Just on November 13 there’s 96,500 people crossing the Mobile River. That’s the Wallace Tunnel, the Bankhead Tunnel and the Cochran Bridge. July 2nd there’s 107,000 crossing the river on that day,” Kevin Harrison said.

The data shows on November 13, about 75 percent of the traffic was local from Mobile and Baldwin counties. But on July 2, just over half, about 55 percent of the traffic, was local. That means nearly half of the drivers on the Bayway and Causeway on July 2 weren’t from the area.

Innovative Convention and Visitors Bureaus (CVBs) and Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) Find Way To Lure Tourism Dollars From Other Destinations

 

Just in time for DMAI 2014: New technology from AirSage is changing how the tourism industry reaches potential visitors

 

July 2014

In the race to attract tourism dollars, innovative Convention and Visitor’s Bureaus (CVBs) are embracing the use of high-tech mobility data, which may pave the way to woo tourists planning to visit other destinations. The stakes are high in the U.S. where the travel and tourism industry generates nearly $1.5 trillion in economic output, supports 7.8 million U.S. jobs, and can make or break local or micro economies. 

In March 2014, AirSage helped the Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board understand the ‘where and when’ of the Los Angeles Marathon. By analyzing anonymous mobile signals in the L.A. area and along the marathon route, during the days leading up to the race and race day itself, AirSage was able to show:

  • where visitors came from
  • what they did when they arrived
  • where they stayed
  • how long they stayed
  • visitor demographic data

For the 2014 NCAA Final Four Championship in Arlington, Texas, AirSage captured visitor data and provided the Dallas Convention & Visitors Bureau with information that showed:

  • who showed up for pre-game activities v. actual games
  • where they came from
  • the movement of visitors before and after the event

Los Angeles and Dallas are just two of more than a dozen other DMOs and CVBs tapping into the power of mobility data, including Durham Visitors Bureau and Visit Jacksonville. Many markets have benefited from full visitor movement and demographic data to supplement ad effectiveness and event impact studies giving them the ability to see their true ROI.

Finding a Goldmine in Cellular Data: A New Opportunity for Telecom in the Big Data Era 

 

June 2014

An article published by Accenture, a global management consulting, technology services and outsourcing company, covers common questions and answers relative to cellular data:
 
  • How can cellular towers detect a mobile phone user’s mobility? 
  • What is the advantage of cellular data?
  • What can cellular data be used for?

Analyzing cellular data for position information has a variety of applications. Due to privacy concerns, the existing applications typically provide aggregate mobility information and claim to be anonymous. Despite this, the cellular data has proved its value in a wide range of areas. Examples include customer behavior analysis for retail, property, leisure and media, business location selection for retail, and trip matrix analysis for city/transportation planners.

Leaders in Moore County were at a standstill in their transportation planning, because they did not have access to reliable information about traffic volumes and travelers on U.S. 1 from Aberdeen 

through Southern Pine. Specifically, the county’s transportation committee needed to know if traffic patterns demanded the construction of an

expensive and controversial by-pass or the creation of additional interchanges.

 

The AirSage Trip Matrix analytics documented travel patterns captured from nearly 11.6 million trips and more than 3 million unique mobile devices captured in Moore County from September 20 through October 18, 2012. Data captured by AirSage represented approximately one in six Moore County residents.

“The information will be used to develop a travel demand model that will evaluate current and future travel patterns. That in turn will help guide decisions on where future road improvement projects and new highways will be needed.”

                                       – Rhett Fussell, Supervising Engineer with Parsons Brinckerhoff

ENR Publishes: "Plucking Cell Phone Data from the Air to Ensure Construction Project Success"

 

September 2013

 

Like almost everything else the world of construction, the world of project planning is increasingly moving toward processes that draw upon data—including what is often referred to as “big data,” which holds keys to spotting large-scale shifts in communities.

Embracing better market-analysis technology that mines big data does not have to mean discarding tried and true. It can, however, provide the winning edge that gives communities and developers the confidence needed to give ambitious projects the green light, and contractors the projects to build. While you don’t need to become a tech superstar overnight to begin benefitting from bigger and better data, it will probably help to know why people are making such a big deal of it.

OKI  Regional Trip Matrix Study from AirSage Delivers Almost 500x the Data of a Traditional HHTS for less money22 Months Faster!

Robust trip matrix study using mobility data replaces traditional freeway survey, helping this two-year regional transportation study project comply with legal guidelines


OKI was tasked with a daunting deliverable: create an updated travel model for the tri-state area that would accurately document current travel patterns and forecast transportation needs for the next 30 years. The study had two primary goals: 1) measure where people are coming from/going to and 2) differentiate local travelers from those passing through - and it had to be done without traditional freeway surveys.

 
See how the AirSage Trip Matrix study captured data from than 2 million people on 1,300 miles of freeway to deliver almost 500 times the number of trips than was captured with a HHTS - all in a fraction of the time and with significant cost savings.

AirSage in the News: The Pilot Reports on How AirSage Mobility Data is Clarifying the REAL Needs in a $300 Million Highway Project 

 

 

July 3, 2013 by David Sinclair

 
AirSage is helping transportation officials in North Carolina identify areas of real need for a $300 million highway project on U.S. 1 that will impact the areas north of Pinebluff to Cameron.  The project findings illuminate some of the most powerful insights delivered by AirSage mobility data, including: 
 
  • Confirm traffic sources and patterns - in this project, they are not as officials assumed meaning the original proposed plan may not solve the existing transportation problem.
  • Provide mission-critical insights - AirSage data, used as part of the comprehensive transportation plan process, provided measurable data and actionable insights as a replacement to an educated guess. County Commissioner Jimmy Melton, who heads up the committee, observed: 'This right here [previous assumptions] is really scary. It [AirSage data] gives us an opportunity to get it right. In the past, it was kind of our best guess.'"
  • Deliver robust, local/area-specific data - AirSage provides "...access to the kind of information that no one else in the state has,” according to project engineer Frances Bisby, who is working with the committee to develop a comprehensive transportation plan for the county through 2040: “This is all local data. This is not data from DOT."
  • Capture large, precise data samples -  The AirSage study captured "...data from one out of every six Moore County residents,"  according to Rhett Fussell, supervising engineer with Parsons Brinckerhoff, a Raleigh firm hired by the N.C. Department of Transportation (DOT) for this project. This "...compares to about about one out of every 100 households from a traditional survey. You get a much higher sample rate and see a lot more people than in a survey."

July 3, 2013 by Mike Dano

 

 

AT&T Prepping sale of customers' anonymous location information and Web, app usage data : Wireless Carriers Continue to Explore Big Data Business

AT&T is not the first company to sell anonymous information about its customers' location and behavior. Facebook (NASDAQ:FB), Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) and most other Internet companies have long sold such data. In the wireless industry, Verizon Wireless (NYSE:VZ) launched its Precision Marketing Insights business last year which also anonymizes and sells customer location and usage information. Further, companies such as AirSage and SAP have recently begun selling aggregated location and usage information from wireless carriers. 

The sale of such information falls under the "big data" movement, which IDC predicts will grow to nearly $24 billion by 2016.
