The Steam Hotel

The ESS Group claim they don’t build hotels or sell any hotel rooms. Instead, they say that they create destinations, places people want to return to, unique meeting places shaped by unique characters.



To increase brand awareness and expand the target audience and attract the target audience to visit the Steam Hotel with an attractive offer.



With the help of consumer class data, we can get a detailed and comprehensive picture of the potential customers’ choices, preferences and habits online. It streamlines campaign management and provides a fantastic customer understanding that contributes to relevant communication.



We measured 1500% ROI, which proves that the ESS Group succeeded in its targeting and that they have a clear picture of their target audience. Well-crafted creatives appeal to and inspire the target audience.

Effective targeting

Through our technology and using target group data sourced through our partnership with NDR (Nordic Data Resources), a brand-building campaign and the promotion of a special offer was promoted online by us. Instead of targeting a general audience, such as through age, gender, and interest, the campaign focused on the most likely potential customers, including taking account of the phase of their lives.

ESS Group’s campaign is a thoroughly worthwhile case to learn from and demonstrates the real value of programmatic advertising, whereby programmatic ad purchases can return a very big ROI off only a small budget. This particular campaign consisted of two in-stream videos, 21 and 23 seconds long.

The outstanding result of a 1500% ROI proves beyond measure that a thorough knowledge of the target audience along with well-made creatives and of course, a popular product, will deliver a great campaign despite a modest budget. Additionally, the campaign offer was a hotel getaway for around 3,000 SEK (which is nearly 300 EUR) which is also pretty impressive!
