The ad is running through September on six channels, with most spots airing in the early evening and during prime time. In addition to focusing on ticket pricing, the ad directs prospective customers to its Internet site since Allegiant doesn’t allow its flight information to be placed on travel websites like Expedia and Orbitz. Allegiant contracted with San Francisco-based Penabrand to produce the commercial and Ocean Media of Huntington Beach, Calif., for the ad buys. Ocean Media has developed a media analytics program to determine which channels and what time slots produce the most traffic to Allegiant’s website. Currently, the ad is being shown on the HGTV home improvement channel, the Do It Yourself network, ABC Family, Travel Channel, Lifetime Movie and Destination America, but Davis said buys could be adjusted through the month based on the analytics and Ocean Media’s feedback.
