Targeted Sampling with Theraflu

Theraflu set out to make a positive and lasting impression on airport passengers, and gave AMI a list of their target markets. AMI created a list of key airports close to those markets and obtained flight schedules from Boston Logan. Each flight to Theraflu’s target markets was highlighted and given to Theraflu’s Brand Ambassadors to focus on those departure gates and baggage claim carousels of arriving passengers.

Google Airport WIFI Sponsorship Program

Prior to the introduction of products such as Chrome and Google Docs, Google tended to avoid traditional advertising methods.  However, in entering more competitive markets (such as web browsers), Google sought to create market awareness in non-traditional ways. AMI recommended targeting an important demographic at the optimal point of product relevance – as travelers are accessing the internet at airports.
