I run a scooter tour business in Lancaster, PA. We were looking for an agency that could help us generate more bookings from our website. Improve & Grow didn’t just offer us a standard SEO package, they helped us develop a comprehensive digital marketing strategy with all of the numbers to back it up. In our first year we grew by over 30%, and we are already crushing last years sales, despite a 2 1/2 month shutdown due to COVID-19! The team is very responsive and fun to work with.

Carl and his team at Improve and Grow helped us in so many ways, like teaching us about Search Engine Optimization and how to improve our Paid Ad Campaigns. With every small improvement they made, we saw improvement in our ticket sales! Thanks so much!

I have worked with Carl at Improve and Grow over the past 3-4 years. Prior to that time, I worked with 2 other SEOs that over-promised and under-delivered. Not so with Carl. He has taken the time to understand our goals, study our market, and guide us toward being well positioned in every respect. He is transparent with his successes/failures, he is reliable with project deadlines, and it is obvious that he works hard to over-deliver on the goals that he sets for his accounts.One of the things I respect most about his work approach is the effort he puts into testing/tracking, and then making decisions based on hard data vs. “best guesses”. Sometimes this isnt always possible or worth the effort, so he is realistic in this regard as well, but whenever possible, projects are created to be track-able and to generate statistics that can guide future actions.

Tourism Marketing Questions & Answers

What is tourism marketing?

Tourism marketing uses a variety of mediums such as websites, digital ads, television, radio, print, etc. to promote specific attractions to consumers who plan to visit or live in a particular destination of interest.

What marketing tactics work best for tourism businesses?

It depends on who your target audience is and where they spend time and seek out information. As tourists typically aren’t familiar with local sources of information, they often turn online to search engines and travel directories when they are seeking things to do or places to stay. As such, digital marketing tactics such as search engine optimization, pay-per-click advertising, and social media, are very effective. Print advertising, billboards, television ads, radio commercials, and other offline marketing channels may also work well.

How much do I need to spend to market my tourism business?

Your marketing budget depends on many different factors such as your local market, the level of competition, and the cost of your experience. Your current position in the market and the pace you want to grow are also important factors. As a general rule of thumb, established businesses spend at least 5% of their revenue on marketing, while businesses looking to grow rapidly may spend as much as 10% of their revenue.

What kind of results can I expect from a tourism marketing strategy?

Results will vary based on many factors such as how much you spend and where you spend it as well as market conditions. In our experience, effectively targeted marketing should yield a minimum of a 300% return on investment.

What is your approach to developing a tourism marketing plan?

The best plans are based on data, not opinions. Our approach is to start by understanding your business – how much you want to grow, who your ideal clients are, what makes your experience unique. Then we conduct extensive research to understand your market potential and gather competitive intelligence. We also take an honest assessment of your current online presence. We use what we learn to identify the best opportunities to achieve your growth goals. The result is a data-backed digital marketing strategy that shows you where and how to invest and what results to expect.
