The key problem

Remaining competitive in the face of Brexit. The client wanted an increase in website traffic and conversions Year Over Year, although competition has been on the rise as more competitors enter the market every day, and consumers are putting off travel plans as we face Brexit and a struggling pound. Average travel CPCs are on the rise by 30-40% Year Over Year via Google Ads, which means even to maintain the same level of engagement and sales is going to take a greater budget.

Our approach to the objective:

Strategic

  • Grow Brand Awareness and bring more people to the website
  • Achieve a target CPA of £80

Tactics

  • Preparing realistic Projections using our own data, as well as data provided by Google. Knowing we would not be able to use the same budget Year Over Year and receive higher engagement in such a competitive climate.
  • Introducing Remarketing Ads via The Google Display Network to re-engage web visitors who have not enquired. Brand focused as well as the top priority destinations were featured in the creative and audience lists.
  • Aside from layering remarketing lists and adjusting bids in search campaigns that are destination specific, we also layered in In-Market Audiences for those looking for holidays in specific locations and modified bids on these audiences.
  • It sounds so simple, but ensuring all of our campaigns are running to Google’s best practices. Ensuring we are using the correct number ETAs and Responsive Text Ads, as well as extensions. This means that Google is more apt to show our ads, and show them for a potentially lower CPC. A few changes can make a *huge* difference in impressions, cost and engagement.
