Downtown Addresses Negative Perceptions

Downtown Indy Inc. is working to turn the tide on negative perceptions about safety in the heart of Indianapolis, IN.

In October, the organization launched a three-month paid marketing campaign featuring the offerings of downtown destinations, events, and merchants, including live music at the Indianapolis Zoo, walks along the canal, and craft beer at a dozen breweries.

“This paid marketing campaign both introduces and reminds our key audiences how to enjoy weekends and weekdays in downtown, whether you’re a family of four, a young professional new to the city, or a recent retiree,” says Downtown Indy Inc. President and CEO Taylor Schaffer.

The campaign included spots on social media, print, and outdoor advertising. The campaign targeted three key demographics — Urban professionals, family-oriented city dwellers, and arts and culture enthusiasts.
