Online Ad Service for Gaming Operators
Las Vegas-based Lund & Manasse Advertising recently launched a new Web
site, designed to give small gaming operators access to advertising
Lund & Manasse President Jennifer Lund said the Web site is a new
online service that allows clients select from more than 100 poster
designs, bypassing traditional ad agencies to market their restaurant
specials, gaming promotions and hotel amenities.
"The idea is to offer the high-quality advertising we do for our
clients in town to casinos, bar and restaurants across the country in
remote locations where they don’t have an agency," she said.
Also, sometimes Lund & Manasse clients do not want to work with an
agency and need to move quickly, so they would prefer the convenience
of producing their own posters, Lund said.
Executives at other ad agencies declined to comment on the new site
with which they were not familiar. But they said it would provide a
service some of their Las Vegas clients have said they’d like to have.
They also said operators in remote locations could prove to be a
serious market for this type of service.
Buz Doyle, who overseas marketing for the Route 66 Casino outside
Albuquerque, N.M., said the new Web site is a valuable tool for
smaller gaming operations, especially those in rural locations such as
the one he represents.
The Route 66 Casino is owned by the Pueblo of Laguna and features
1,250 slot machines and 20 table games.
"There are a lot of casinos in Indian country that would use this
sort of thing.
Right now, (the Laguna Development Corp. which operates the casino
for the American Indian tribe) is assessing the cost-value ratio. It
looks pretty good," Doyle said.
Prices per poster range from $52.55 to $67.55 depending on the
quantity ordered. Traditional work would cost $250 to $300 per poster.
Lund compared the advertising development to trends toward using
computers in the hospitality business.
