Project Background

The Ultimate Travel Company has over 30 years of experience creating worldwide holidays.

They called on Passion to support them in bouncing back from lockdown by driving more leads.   

Our Strategy

We first started by restructuring their Google Ads account to make bidding more efficient. To help inform budget phasing – both throughout the year as well as across each month – we created a seasonality ‘heatmap’ based on search volume for each destination and country.

To help cover all types of searches, we looked to group together keywords as opposed to segmenting. This allowed the data to guide us in bidding on the right terms as time progressed.

We revamped the brand account to help achieve >90% impression share by bidding on core terms only, allowing match types to pick up other related brand terms, rather than attempting to achieve maximum impression share for all of them.
