Content is still king.
A targeted content marketing strategy is imperative to the growth of your business.

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) may be old school but it’s here to stay. It is particularly important for tourism businesses and travel experience providers that offer products and services in specific destinations. This is because visitors are often searching for location-specific keywords on Google.
Rather than visitors needing to know your brand name, they can search for things to do, places to stay and attractions in the local area. If your website and online profile have been optimised for SEO effectively, tourists can find your services in a Google search based on the keywords they type in.
For example, if your business is a tour operator based in Barcelona, visitors will find your business on a search engine in different ways. Rather than searching for ‘tour operators in Barcelona’, potential customers are more likely to search for ‘walking tours barcelona’ or ‘best city trips barcelona.’ Put simply, if your website has been optimised to show on Google for these keywords, your business will show up in the results. If not, your competitors will be.
We can help you to identify which keywords people are typing into search engines to find your services. We then update your website so that it has more visibility on Google and your business can start to attract more customers.

Your website is the face of your business and your number one salesperson. It is the only person that is capable of working 365 days per year, 24 hours a day. If you don’t have a website, or your website is outdated and doesn’t work properly, this decreases trust in your business.
The travel sector is extremely competitive. Unfortunately, you need to keep up with your competitors and provide potential new customers with online experiences that are enjoyable, easy to understand and helpful. Let’s not forget your existing clients, too!
The lifecycle of a website is typically 4-5 years, at most. Not only does the design become outdated, but technology, security needs and user expectations change drastically.

There are a variety of paid digital advertising solutions available, however, they don’t all work as efficiently for every business.

Do you genuinely know what your customers think? Do you know what they want and what they expect from your business? What do they need most when they travel with you?
Imagine if you could get inside the mind of your existing customers to learn more about what your future customers need. The good news is, you can.
Customer research can help you to improve your overall service offering. It can help you to understand what is working well and what needs some attention. It can help you to narrow down your services to focus more of your energy on those that people really enjoy.
Behavioural analysis and 1:1 interviews can help to uncover the barriers people might be facing on your website. Why aren’t they booking that tour, considering all the added extras and inclusions? It might not be an issue with the price or the inclusions. There might be an issue with your website that stops them from booking.
