Getting Started with Recovery

What’s the primary purpose of the Recovery module?

The following overview is from the Zartico OS 2.0.

In a Covid world, context around the rate of movement & travel in key origin markets is necessary to understand when it is safe to begin marketing to these destinations again. These observations are helpful when determining when to target a destination’s origin markets with paid media.

TIP: Start with this module and then move to the media planning module to dive deeper into the key origin market you're investigating.

What questions is this module designed to answer?

  • What is the status of the recovery in my key origin markets?
  • Are people beginning to feel it is safe to travel? Should I start spending money again? If so, where?

What visualizations are included in this module?

This visualization compares the total number of devices an origin market observes moving from workplaces to places of residence, compared to last year. The benchmark is set to 0% and -100% indicates consumers in a particular origin market are not moving around within their home market.


Source: GA Organic Search - 7 day average over the prior week

This visualization compares the rolling average of organic search volume over the prior week. Increasing values show an acceleration of searches. If organic search increases from an origin market, several questions to explore are:

    • Are these travelers beginning to plan trips to your destination?
    • Are you running any paid media in this market or have you garnered any earned media in this market?
