NAVIS Reach drives more effective retargeted lead marketing
“NAVIS goal is to help VR operators get the best value from being partners with each of us,” said Marquis. “Our powerful new Lead Marketing System enables operators to make the most from their investment with those leads.” Marquis noted that listing site leads convert at about 5%. The new NAVIS system captures data on the 95% of leads that typically do not convert and makes that data available to NAVIS’ Reach CRM marketing tool. The result is a richer long-term prospect base and increased revenue for VR operators.

Most online listing leads sit in an operator’s email box. NAVIS Reach allows operators to segment and target those prospective guests into Household Personas and automatically market back to valuable leads. NAVIS Reach enables VRMs automatically retarget an email to somebody who showed interest this year or last but did not book. This takes lead retargeting to a more profitable level.

"The data is strong,” Marquis said. “NAVIS Narrowcast revenue that comes from listings sites such as HomeAway and VRBO has grown from 6% just three years ago to 23%. NAVIS will continue to work with listing partners to help NAVIS Narrowcast clients manage their leads for more conversions that boost revenue now and in the future.”
