IMEG takes on Sevier County marketing campaign www.visitmysmokies.com in 2012
Almost 10 years ago, Sevier County’s Tourism Committee requested for companies interested in becoming the new marketing agency to promote the Visit My Smokies website to submit their qualifications. Four companies responded to the request, including our company. Both IMEG and Texas-based U.S. Destination Marketing (USDM) were invited back for another round of interviews. IMEG won the bid against USDM and has been partnered with the county to market Visit My Smokies since late August 2012.
IMEG Took On Visit My Smokies
IMEG performed an analysis on its marketing progress on Visit My Smokies. The company only implemented less than 40% of its plan and budget. Analyzing this progress gave rise to a level of expectation within the company, as IMEG continued following progress in the following months. Results from this analysis included several elements of progress within the first 25 days, and were as follows: Increased unique visitors to partners by an average 37.22%, increased page views to partners by an average of 43.67%, decreased bounce rate to partners by an average of .11%, and increased time spent on partner’s site by an average of 13.29%.
