60 Miles West, 180 Degrees Different
As the full-service marketing partner for Pahrump Tourism, BRAINTRUST was challenged to revitalize the brand positioning of this rural, active-lifestyle, Nevada destination. BRAINTRUST delivered a fully-integrated, revamped branding campaign that has helped to drive measurable increases in visitation to the community. The Pahrump advertising creative was refreshed with a bright, bold color palette, reflecting the adventurous spirit of the destination. The new branding included out-of-home, print, broadcast and digital media placements.
The result of the campaign? Tourist visitation to Pahrump has increased 42%+.
Located only 60 miles west of Las Vegas, Pahrump offers the best of Southern Nevada with exclusive events and world-class outdoor adventures that can’t be found anywhere in Las Vegas. From award-winning wineries and the second longest racetrack in the world to a four-day Fall Festival and a Native American Social POWWOW, the Pahrump experience represents true Nevada.
By defining and shaping Pahrump’s brand pillars, we created more awareness to the town so that we can achieve the following goals:
- Establish Pahrump as a destination that is easy to get to but hard to forget
- Attract more tourism from Las Vegas and regional markets
- Define and differentiate Pahrump from Las Vegas
- Create a positive impression of Pahrump
Digital advertising and social media were key in the integrated strategy, with BRAINTRUST developing rich media advertising units and creative mini-games. Click to stomp grapes to make wine, or pilot a hot air balloon, the ad units yielded a 60% interaction rate.
In addition to an effective online marketing campaign, BRAINTRUST redesigned and redeveloped the Visit Pahrump website. Using vibrant imagery and responsive design, the new website incorporates reservation functionality that allows the user to make a booking at one of Pahrump’s hotels, casinos or RV parks. Mobile-friendly, the site also features fully dynamic content and showcases local restaurants and seasonal events. The online campaign immediately generated strong results: Traffic to the Visit Pahrump website is up 95% YOY.
