Driven IQ builds local news brand in cluttered metropolitan DMA with strategic data-first approach


Working together with a major broadcast corporation, DrivenIQ set out to help launch a new local news website featuring bite-size bits of local information in the Atlanta metropolitan area. With no local television or radio station to anchor the brand, DrivenIQ used a data-first approach to generate interest in a new local news site.


DrivenIQ utilized a combination of audiences, tactics and campaigns including programmatic display, OTT, Google display, YouTube, Facebook Ads, and email marketing.

To launch the news site, DrivenIQ employed a custom audience of 150,000 Atlanta-based known heavy online streamers and local news viewers to initiate awareness and engagement in the newly developed local news website.

In phase two of the launch, the goal was to drive 100,000 unique users to the website. To achieve that, DIQ set a target $2 CPC and aimed to build a campaign that would generate 100,000 clicks to the website.

The end result was a successful new brand launch, updated website content for user enhancement, increasingly longer viewing time on the stream and hundreds of thousands of sellable impressions. The campaign successfully achieved over 100,000 clicks and during the campaign outreach phase, traffic spiked from an average of 500 users per day to as many as 30,000 per day.
