Challenge: Launch a new website using organic search techniques for the tourist offices of Portugal & Spain called PortugalSpainBoth.com.
Results: Travel Spike achieved 506 new listings on page 1 of the major search engines in only 9 months. The senior level search engine optimization team at Travel Spike was able to use advanced seo tactics involving search engines and directories for blogs, audio, video, RSS and social media. Our seo and travel experts combined online destination marketing experience with search marketing best practices.
Challenge: Build a social media strategy and presence for the St. Augustine, Ponte Vedra & The Beaches Visitors and Convention Bureau.
Results: Travel Spike achieved over 2 million Web 2.0 Hits for the Destination in only 6 months. Most destinations have well under 10,000 Web 2.0 Hits, so these numbers are industry leading for a destination that is not as big as neighboring Orlando. The social media and digital public relations teams at Travel Spike worked together to create an online blueprint for the destination. We promoted the destination across YouTube, Facebook, Twitter and many other social networking sites.
Challenge: To increase bookings for the Tucson CVB.
Results: Travel Spike increased bookings by an amazing 850% year over year. Our Featured Destination programs are very effective and combine our destination marketing expertise with our online advertising programs. We have very tangible and trackable methods to show ROI through reporting. In this case we were able to measure the increase in room nights booked into Tucson over a set period during our Internet advertising campaign.
