CREATING DIGITAL TRAVEL CAMPAIGNS

The travel industry is now about building relationships with your prospect and current customers, so your campaign has to help achieve this. When creating your campaign, there are various things to consider to ensure you are targeting the right people at the right time in their planning phase:

 

Your campaign should incorporate different messaging, depending on whether you are targeting prospect customers or existing customers. This will allow you to capture new audiences and maximise the loyal customers that are most valuable to you.


In the travel industry, data can be used to make creative decisions which can be game-changing, including the use of geotargeting, using location and other behaviours. An example of this involves having localised, unique social media accounts for each store across the country. By doing this, highly relevant content can be provided to your customers.

When it comes to planning a travel campaign, timing and intent is key. You need to fully understand the audience you are targeting and the timing in which they are most likely to hear your message. Find out more about our digital marketing & travel services here
