Are you facing any of these challenges?
One of the most common challenges facing hotels and resorts, yet there are an array of things that can be done to counteract this, from branded search ads, to increased organic visibility, and increasing conversion rate with those who do visit your website. After beginning working with us, our clients see a significant increase in the proportion of direct bookings, and some even come off of OTAs altogether.
You want quality over quantity. Well, ideally you want both. And together, we could achieve that. Not having a well-defined audience profile to be targeting can inhibit your ability to reach the right people, and provide the necessary information to deter unqualified visitors from inquiring. Preventing low-quality inquiries saves your team’s precious time – and time is money.
Theoretically this is the easiest challenge to solve, but knowing where to start isn’t so easy. So that’s why working with a digital agency specializing in the travel and hospitality industry is the best way to expedite increased awareness and visibility.
There have been a lot of changes in recent months and years when it comes to data and analytics so feeling out of your depth is completely normal. Analytics, tracking and reporting is a specialism of ours. And we talk about it in a palatable way. If you’re in need of an audit to understand what has been going on, what’s not working and what to do next, we can help with that. Unsure how to use Google Analytics 4 (GA4) – we can help with that. Unsure if you have GA4 – we can definitely help with that.
We are partners with the businesses we work with so there is full transparency on what the data is saying. And we don’t sugarcoat things, if something’s not working, we’ll tell you. And from there, the only way is up.
Speaking frankly, running digital ads and doing SEO isn’t rocket science. However, the ability to do it well isn’t to be underestimated.
An imbalanced spend across different ad platforms can generate vanity metrics like impressions, or reach, but if it’s not impacting your bottom line – it’s not working.
Developing a data-informed strategy that’s in alignment with your target audience profile and business goals is the foundation required to get a return on your digital ad campaigns – along with having experts there to optimize and iterate those campaigns for continued performance growth (we’re talking about us).
Losing share of market to competitors is par for the course for many businesses at one point or another. But overtaking competitors in terms of organic visibility, or occupancy is something our clients are pleased to experience after initiating a digital strategy recommended by our Wallop team.
Whether we’re building a new website, developing a strategy, or working on digital marketing the results you can expect will put you into a growth trajectory.
