Camelot Communications and Kenshoo Donate Marketing Services and Technology to Dallas Museum of Art
SAN FRANCISCO, California, May 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ –
Kenshoo [http://kenshoo ] (http://www.Kenshoo.com), the global leader in
predictive media optimization technology, and Camelot Communications
[http://www.camelotsmm.com ] (http://www.camelotsmm.com), one of the largest
privately-owned strategic marketing and media services companies in the country, announced
today they are donating their marketing services, expertise, and technology to the Dallas
Museum of Art [http://www.dallasmuseumofart.org ] (DMA.org [http://www.dma.org ]) which
ranks among the leading art institutions in the country. Through this joint initiative,
Camelot and Kenshoo hope to increase awareness of museum exhibits and events and increase
both visitor attendance and museum memberships through social media advertising.
“Since 1903, the Dallas Museum of Art has provided a home for some of the world’s most
important and impressive works of art in their global collection, and now the public has
access to them for free. The most fitting donation we could make to support this amazing
institution is by providing our services and expertise to help raise further awareness for
it,” said Sam Bloom, GM Interactive at Camelot Communications. “Partnering with Kenshoo,
whose technology we rely on for advanced audience targeting capabilities, was a natural
fit as they’re a like-minded philanthropic company.”
In January 2013, the Dallas Museum of Art returned to free general admission and
launched DMA Friends, the first free U.S. museum membership program in the nation, which
currently has more than 64,000 members. Camelot Communications will focus campaign efforts
on powerful social channels including Facebook and Twitter to increase attention for
specific exhibitions in advance of weekend planning activities.
Camelot will utilize Kenshoo Social, an advanced platform to automate the creation,
management and optimization of highly-targeted social marketing campaigns in real time, to
quickly and easily create and target campaign elements around the special exhibits.
Kenshoo’s sophisticated tools allow Camelot to target local Dallas-area residents by
demographics and interest, ensuring ads target the most relevant consumers to increase the
likelihood of interaction.
“Those familiar with Kenshoo know that art [http://youtu.be/5uwbR-Adp04 ] and
innovation [http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ncYwm0UbkzU ] are core components of what we do
every day,” said Ted Krantz, chief revenue officer for Kenshoo. “Putting our
industry-leading technology in the hands of the experts at Camelot, it is quite rewarding
to see the impressive results we were able to generate on behalf of Dallas Museum of Art.”
“We are incredibly grateful for the opportunity to partner with Camelot and Kenshoo,
two companies with strategies that closely align with the goals of our institution. We
thank them for generously donating their time, services, expertise and technology to help
raise awareness of the DMA’s many exciting exhibitions and programs,” said Rob Stein,
Deputy Director of the Dallas Museum of Art. “When we returned to our free general
admission policy and launched DMA Friends, it was with the intent of increasing access to
all that we have to offer the North Texas community and Camelot and Kenshoo’s efforts have
played a vital role in helping us to accomplish this.”
