A new report has shown that travel companies plan on increasing the amount they spend on search engine marketing (SEO) and other online promotion.
A total of 60 per cent of respondents to the survey said that they will be pushing up the funding they dedicate to professional SEO activities.
The study, conducted by bigmouthmedia, also showed that advertising on the internet is set to take up an average of 57 per cent of firms’ marketing budgets in 2010, compared with 50 per cent this year.
Anneli Ritari, senior travel strategist at bigmouthmedia, explained that many businesses are planning on looking in to spending more on social network marketing.
She added: “There can be little doubt that the travel industry now truly appreciates the power and reach of digital marketing, with the proportional spend rocketing upwards from only 38 per cent in 2008.”
This week, Ivan Croxford told UTalkMarketing that customers are using search engines to research items that they are considering purchasing.

In today’s multichannel world, there are mountains of data which provide insights into how users have interacted with your business and their path to conversion (or non-conversion). It is important to understand performance with multichannel marketing, which can be achieved through attribution modelling. Attribution refers to assigning credit to something (a channel, touchpoint, etc.) for the role it played in the final conversion. An attribution model is a rule, or set of rules, that assigns this credit correctly to the right channel or touchpoint.
For a long time, Bing, the UK’s second-largest search engine, has been underappreciated and, in some instances, even ignored. Often regarded as the inferior search engine to market leader Google, Bing has historically struggled to appeal to many in the digital world. Most PPC analysts would give justified reasons for neglecting Bing for so long; these include the volume of traffic and the user experience just not matching up to Google. However, the validity of these assessments is now diminishing. Bing has grown and improved rapidly in the last couple of years; if you are not integrating it into your comprehensive digital marketing plan, you run the risk of missing out on a large portion of your chosen market and significant revenue.
