Are you wondering what marketing you should be doing to reach your target audience?  Tourism Tactics can help you with a plan that will ensure your marketing is generating enquiries and bookings.  Firstly we will complete a marketing audit to look at what advertising you are currently doing, who your target audience is, and identify your key selling points.  By taking a closer look at your customers we can start to understand what types of marketing material they are using to make their travel decisions and whether your current selection is appropriate.  From the audit we will also come up with the key messages you want to put forward in your advertising.

This information becomes the basis for a plan that will be used to undertake the production of revised marketing material and ensuring it is distributed in the most effective places.  We have had lots of experience working with “creative” agencies, printers, and web developers, so we can take on the role as account manager for you or if you want to do this yourself we can equip you with the appropriate brief to get the job done.

Your website is an important sales tool for your tourism business – it is a chance to sell your product to a traveller before they have even entered New Zealand.  Statistics amongst some of your key target markets (Australia and UK) are showing that the internet is the most popular way of obtaining travel information.  If you are not generating business through your site it means you are not visible to your potential clients and that they have probably found your market competitor!  

Need a new website - we work with the best website developers to make sure you get a site that is right for your business.

Website marketing requires time, patience and hard work, and just like any marketing plan, goals and performance measures need to be set.  We will take an in-depth look at how well your website is performing, present you with a detailed report and offer our ideas as to how your site can reach its full potential.
