MSC Cruises x BeMyEye

MSC Cruises partners with BeMyEye to improve the effectiveness of its marketing budget, increase revenues and create ‘the perfect store’.

The context

In order to improve the effectiveness of its marketing budget and increase revenues, MSC Cruises wanted to verify the presence of its above-the-line marketing and advertising materials in over 9,000 travel agencies across Italy.

The company was not able to know how many of its travel agent partners were achieving the implementation of their ‘perfect store’ (involving a set of in-store MSC Cruises promotional materials, such as brochures, posters and POP), without doing so at a huge cost, using their own workforce, and over a long period of time.

The challenge

MSC Cruises needed a cost-effective solution to quickly segment their travel agent database, by visiting every store in its portfolio to identify their value to the company, using strict criteria on the potential return on marketing investment. “Sending our sales team to verify this across the country would be both times consuming and expensive,” Marketing Director Andrea Guanci commented. 

Until now, MSC Cruises had only been able to audit a small segment of the travel agents that advertised their holidays and was unable to build up a true picture of how their catalogues and posters were being used.
