Video Pre-Roll or Streaming Campaigns

Video brings your story to life. It offers greater engagement, drives more clicks and leaves more lasting impressions. City Guide’s program offers the ability to target through both small and large screen formats.

Pre-roll (small screen)

Delivering video messages to consumers while they are on their phones, tablets and desktops captures their attention and drives them to your desired destination.

The advantages of our pre-roll program is the ability to target the highest potential consumers, both tourists and locals, based on their behavioral, geographic and demographic characteristics.

Pre-roll campaigns have higher engagement and click through rates than traditional targeted display.

Streaming TV (large screen)

Reaching consumers while they are watching TV on Roku, Firesticks, Hulu and many more platforms enables you to engage a captive market.

You have a high level of confidence the viewer will see the ad to completion and you will deliver your message.

The trade-off of this product is you have similar pinpoint targeting as other media, but without a meaningful click-through capability. These campaigns offer strong branding and awareness.

Campaign Development

  • Client produces creative (15 and/or 30 second formats)
  • Selects targets
  • Campaign tracking on 24/7 Dashboard
  • Bi-weekly optimizations

Geofencing-Device ID Campaign

Geofencing-Device ID campaigns offer the opportunity to connect with people based on where they frequent. You can deliver ads to consumers who have visited competitors or complementary services or known destinations of people who meet your demographic or behavioral characteristic. Ads reach people who have been some place before and are traveling through in a defined geography. For instance, a steak house can target people who have eaten at other steakhouses and are on the Upper West Side.


Geofencing-Device ID includes more extensive reporting than traditional display campaigns. In addition to a real time dashboard that reports where impressions are delivered and how they performed this product includes a Foot Traffic Report. The FTR lists the locations/geographies that were the sources for the consumers who visited your place of  business. This presents an opportunity for more refined optimization over time.
