We’ve been extremely busy over the last couple of months, helping Go Air launch Manchester’s biggest trampoline super park.
We started working with Go Air early in 2015 with the launch of the first site in Cardiff in October 2016. Manchester is Cardiff’s black-and-yellow sister venue, and we’ve been working hard to implement a high impact launch campaign to a wide audience in this location. With 200 wall to wall trampolines, battle beams, giant air bag and bounce basketball Go Air in Manchester has something for everyone. The park even hosts fitness classes and is available for public birthday parties.
Go Air were keen to target all adults including families with children and teenage groups to raise awareness of the park’s opening over the Easter break. The team required our expertise on effectively reaching their audience in the right places at exactly the right time, through the most cost effective means.
We put together a targeted campaign that included airtime on popular Manchester radio stations Capital North West and Key 103, along with a Drive Time promotion on Capital to build anticipation and excitement around Manchester’s largest trampoline park.

In order to be precise in reaching families with children we included adverts and a competition in the Manchester edition of the Primary Times which is distributed to Primary schools and families specifically. To ensure we were remaining targeted and producing minimal wastage we took advantage of the precise geo-targeting technologies provided by ITV Player. We ran a campaign delivering impressions to all adults with children in Manchester, seeing fantastic engagement within the first week. TV and video are without doubt the most effective ways to build brand fame and brand awareness, so to make sure the launch campaign was particularly high impact yet still targeted and cost effective, we complemented the ITV Player campaign with Sky Adsmart. The advert was to be delivered to parents with children between the ages of 5 and 17 across a month on Sky channels.
Building campaign frequency and reach across the city was also important for achieving maximum impact. We took advantage of cost-effective tram interiors as part of this integrated campaign. The high dwell time on tram journeys means interiors are perfect for engaging multiple audiences when they’re on the move. Audiences ‘on the move’ are said to be more receptive to advertising messages with 43% being more alert when out of home. Tram routes travel around Manchester, spreading awareness of Go Air’s trampoline super park further for higher frequency and reach.
