Webinar: Innovations in Creative Testing

December 9, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST

TTRA members are invited to a webinar with Partner of the month SMARInsights, on Thursday, December 9, 2021, at 2:00 pm Eastern.  



SMARInsights has specialized in research for destinations for more than 30 years – not only measuring the effectiveness of campaigns, but also providing consumer insights that help develop and improve the effectiveness of tourism advertising.  The bar has been raised as destination advertising continues to evolve and improve, making research an essential ingredient of truly excellent advertising.

Creative testing can be a valuable partner to the marketing team at any stage of production. We have tested music, storyboards, messages, rough cuts, finished creative and colors – applying the most appropriate methods to deliver timely and actionable results. In some cases, quantitative surveys offer the best approach because they provide projectable results and can compare audience segments. Qualitative approaches are better at illuminating attitudes and opinions and contributing emotional context.

Innovative new approaches connect quant and qual to combine the reliability of surveys and the personal engagement of qualitative research.  

In this webinar, we will share a variety of creative testing tools, from Online Focus Groups to Moment-to-Moment Video Evaluation and our new On-Demand Video Interviews.
