Navigating the Top Search Tips for Travel

The customer journey has always been a complicated beast, but none more so than the journey to booking a holiday. The early stages of the traveller’s journey are perhaps the most chaotic online, especially when it comes to their searches. “Cheapest flights”, “Should I go on holiday”, “What to do in Spain”, “holidays in Germany” – the variations in search terms alone are endless. Then consider that some consumers are spontaneous, while others are methodical with research often forming a much more integral part of their path to purchase (in the 45 days before booking, consumers visit an average of 38 travel sites). 

So, how can travel brands use search to ensure that they’re reaching all different types of travellers in a way which resonates with them?

Personalisation: More than just a Buzzword

As mentioned earlier, the way that people phrase travel-related search terms varies wildly. We cannot recommend enough that you ensure your ads are personalised to the queries that are being searched. Creating audience groups based on behaviour, rather than demographic information, will be far more successful for this industry. This will mean segmenting your price-conscious buyer from your spontaneous searcher, your curious adventure-seeker from the unsure user who’s just dipping their toe in the water. 

The personalisation efforts won’t stop there: each of these groups will require tailored content to make your brand relatable to these specific groups. Develop ad copy that suits their style – for example using up-to-date pricing information in your ads to your “price-conscious” demographic, or structuring your sitelinks to refer to the types of activity someone might be able to do while on holiday. Also consider the questions, thoughts and queries that might come up for each group and try to answer them within your copy. That kind of customer experience creates an impact.

Search ads including the cheapest flight prices on the sites

This particular tip comes with a caveat: only create as many audience groups as you have the capacity to manage. While having lots of highly granular audience groups naturally increases the likelihood of reaching the right person with the right messaging at the right time, it will be less effective if you cannot maintain it. 

Too Much Choice, Too Little Time

Travel brands would also be wise to take the not-uncommon phenomenon of choice paralysis into consideration. With the world literally at your fingertips, it isn’t surprising that many consumers get stuck when it comes to deciding the location of their next trip. 

Google Search Autocomplete for the term "Cheap Flights to"

Interestingly enough, in the early stages where choice paralysis is most likely to be a factor, it is the holiday experience on offer, rather than its price point, that is most likely to cement a decision. Calling out the particular experience a traveller might expect will help drive your conversion rates. Will they be living like a local? Is this the trip of a lifetime? Should they expect a relaxing week by the pool or 3 days of non-stop adrenaline? Adding these into your more general prospecting campaigns will allow you to reel in more engaged users; helping to boost your conversions and fuel your retargeting efforts. 

Where are the Searchers?

The importance of mobile, in general, cannot be overstated, but when it comes to travel plans there are several things to take into consideration. Trends have shown that while users are more than happy to conduct much of their (seemingly unending) research on mobile, they’re less comfortable converting on mobile. 

Blue passport and boarding pass

Holidays tend to be big-ticket items, and most, if not all, shoppers prefer to finish their purchase on desktop. Whether they just trust desktop more for their bank details or prefer the easy access to multiple tabs before they make their final decision, most consumers will complete their booking on a desktop.

With this information in mind, there’s a couple of things you can do to improve your conversion rates and drive sales. 

  1. First, you’ll want to bid up on research-related terms on mobile devices (like “best trips for couples”), and more certain, purchase-related searches on desktop (like “flights to Belfast International July”). This will help to reach searchers with the right message for their stage in the consumer journey.
  2. Secondly, ensure that there’s a seamless experience between mobile and desktop, allowing users to easily switch from their mobile research to their purchase on desktop and removing some of the friction in the path to purchase.

The Journey to Conversion

Customers have incredibly high expectations for their online experience, and this is no different when it comes to travel. We cannot stress enough the importance of understanding your customer, and the benefits this can bring.

By keeping these insights in mind, you’ll be able to develop a paid search strategy that makes you relatable to your audiences, and will drive more engaged users to your site. However, be mindful of your capabilities: don’t try and bite off more than you can chew – for fear of not being able to deliver on your goals.

Be Your Own Genie: Finding the Disney in PPC

It’s been twenty years since I was a bright-eyed, bushy tailed, five-year-old. Much has changed; I’m a lot less bright-eyed and bushy tailed, that’s for sure, but one thing I never grew out of is my love of Disney; it’s actually a slight obsession.

I read a blog recently about how PPC account management can be at times like Cinderella, and it got me thinking about how I can relate my career and life to Disney films. It’s funny how easily it all fell into place as I started comparing my experiences from my job search at University, to my rise to Senior Account Manager at NMPi. Hopefully, by sharing some of the traps I fell into, I will help you avoid the same pitfalls.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame
Released in 1996, this is a film from my childhood. It’s also a great analogy for how many people feel about job searching when they finish University; i.e., stumbling round an unknown world, looking for a place to fit into, and struggling to find your identity. Eventually, you find a business that will take you for who you are, can identify with your skills and personality, and give you a place in the new grown up world you’ve just entered. For me that place was NMPi.

Finding Nemo
Starting your first day at any job is daunting, but your first ‘proper’ job can be especially intimidating. For many individuals there is this sense of unknown – you don’t really know what to expect, or what is expected of you. There is so much to learn and to do, whilst trying to remember the array of acronyms everyone uses with what seems like the sole purpose of confusing those who don’t understand, though I promise, those terms will become second nature quite quickly.

It’s a journey of learning and self-discovery, a lot like Marlon’s in the 2003 Pixar classic, Finding Nemo. For me, this was the first 6 months as an Account Executive at NMPi, and a very enjoyable time because whilst it’s scary, and often outside your comfort zone, there is also the thrill of embarking on a new adventure.

Fantasia – (The Trap)
Now this is speaking from experience, and not everyone will have this issue, but at the start of your career, this is something to heed. Mickey Mouse, as the sorcerer’s apprentice, yearns for more responsibility, and takes matters into his own hands with disasterous results. By rushing into skills he has not yet mastered, he ends up making a mess of everything. This may be a very limited and short summary of a classic, but it’s an accurate way to summarise a 3 month spell at NMPi for me.

In my desire to push on to Senior Account Executive (SAE), I took on more and more responsibility, and heavier workloads. I forgot about the basic jobs, and started making mistakes, which ultimately held me back. The moral of the story is: While we all congratulate those who want to push on, don’t forget to continue doing the basics that got you there in the first place!

Having got through my Fantasia phase, I was finally promoted to SAE. This was another learning stage for me. As an SAE you have all the attributes to be dangerous; it’s more of a polishing stage to ensure that you are seen as an expert and a force to be reckoned with.

Much like Tarzan, who needed to be polished from the raw human being he was to a leader and a gentleman. This is much like the process that needs to take place to move you to an Account Manager at NMPi.

The Emperor’s New Groove – (The Trap)
The Emperor’s New Groove is a guilty pleasure of mine, as I appreciate it is not Disney’s finest piece of work, but it paints a nice picture for pushing from Senior Account Executive to Account Manager. Fortunately this isn’t a trap I fell into, but it is one I have seen others get sucked in by and it’s not pretty!

As an Account Manager, your role is as much the development of your team as it is about account efficiency and client happiness. If your team is not happy, performance and client relationships will suffer! Don’t be the Emperor and climb all over those around you to get to the next level. PPC is a team effort and everyone needs to work together to be successful. Don’t forget it, as it can come back to bite you!

Peter Pan
Account Manager has been my favourite role at NMPi. I have been the day to day contact for clients, as well as having a team to guide through their development and keep away from the pitfalls I hit (and obviously, pirates as well!).

It’s also a transition away from always thinking of myself first, to putting my team first, which can be difficult at times. This reminds me of the situation Peter Pan faced when he wanted to keep Wendy to himself. I hope my team of lost boys (and girls) have learned a lot from me and we can continue to grow and fight pirates… I mean performance and development successfully.

As a very new Senior Account Manager, I haven’t yet found the film to fit this role. There are also a number of films that I want to use to summarise my career so far however, I definitely am not far enough down the line to say it’s a Beauty and the Beast success. I am anything but a perfectly polished prince. I can’t even call it a Lion King success, as I’m still a long way from being king at NMPi!

There is one film that can summarise me nicely though, Aladdin. It’s been a long way up from the bottom, and I still have a lot to learn about being a sultan, but I’m getting there. Every now and again I will go back to being a street rat, and making those ad changes, or running SQRs.

No matter what stage of your career you’re at, I hope you’ve found this as fun to read as I did to write, and have taken away some good advice, which has the intention of most Disney films!

The best advice I can give: Learn as much as you can and realise you can’t do everything on your own. Being a PPC analyst is a collaboration between you, your team, and your client. Work hard, create your own luck, and most of all, #beyourowngenie.

Senior Account Manager, NMPi

What’s New in Paid Search

As 2015 draws to a close, it’s time to celebrate our achievements, but also reflect on the next stage of the paid search landscape in 2016. We have identified the top trends for agencies and brands to watch for in the coming year. There were considerable developments to the paid search arena; here are some key take aways:

What’s Working: Brands

It looks like the two biggest movers in paid search for 2016 will be conversion rate optimisation and social advertising, while text ads, mobile, and remarketing remain tried and true channels for paid search. Brands have been extremely pleased with their 2015 PPC results and have earmarked substantially more spend towards paid search campaigns for 2016. The largest gains in this area appear to be, unsurprisingly, in mobile with a 75% industry-wide increase in mobile advertising predicted for the next year. Automation software also ranked highly with brands as it cut down on wastage and returned profitable results.

Customer Match
With mobile engagement on the rise, taking home 25% of all shopping transactions, Google has come out with 2 new products that tap into this unique venue: Customer Match, and Universal App Campaigns. Customer Match has been likened to Facebook Audiences and gives brands the ability to upload email addresses to Google. Customer Match is available across YouTube, TruView, Gmail, and the Google Display Network. This is a powerful new tool that allows brands to recapture former customers, cross-sell, personalise PPC ads, follow customers across devices, and create look-alikes.

Coming to an App Store Near You
Google has created a new campaign for marketers, dubbed ‘Universal App Campaigns’ because the ads reach across Google’s platforms. This ties in neatly with Google putting out search ads in the Google Play Store this past February to help developers stand out in the crowd.

Google Shopping Update: Don’t Miss Out
Google has enhanced its PLAs and shopping campaigns to showcase items merchants are missing in their feeds. Shopping assortment reports allow marketers to uncover products they may not be offering, but that are popular with shoppers. This provides an opportunity to add coveted products to their feed and capture new business.

Location, Location, Location
A recent update to ad customisers enables brands and agencies to tailor ads based on a person’s location. Mobile users now have important purchasing information at their fingertips: store inventory, store hours, shipping information and location, all at the regional level. Location targeting will continue to be big going into 2016, especially since searches by mobile users can convert into sales quickly, in some instances, immediately or within the hour.

Making It Personal
The push for personalisation remains strong as we move into 2016. Personalising the user experience has never been easier with multiple avenues readily available for relevant targeting: behaviour, location and preference. Connecting meaningfully with new and past customers has been a key objective for agencies and brands and will continue to do so in the coming months.


5 Tips for Expanding Internationally with Paid Search

With many UK brands now seeking growth through international expansion, we take a closer look at how brands can successfully expand their international operations with Paid Search and Display. Focusing on international campaign management and execution, this article offers our top tips on running effective campaigns targeted to different territories.


Please click here to see our earlier article on 5 Tips for Introducing a Brand into a New Territory.


Our top 5 tips for international expansion

1. Decide which countries to target

When expanding internationally, a good starting point for advertisers is to research which territories are likely to perform well:

  • Use tools such as Google’s Keyword Planner with its Traffic Estimator function to find out the level of brand awareness of your brand in a target territory by estimating the average monthly impressions your brand may receive.
  • To gain further insights on new territories, we would suggest that you create a worldwide brand campaign targeting all countries and all languages, while being careful to exclude any territories where you already have campaigns running. By running a worldwide campaign, you will be able to assess which locations drive the most traffic and sales. Let the campaign run for at least 2 weeks and you will see the territories which are performing the best. The highest performing campaigns should then be separated and optimised individually.


2. Find the right keywords

Building a strong keyword list for your campaign will help you ensure that your ads show to your target customers as they search for specific terms or visit certain websites. To find the right keywords for your campaign, we would suggest you:

  • Use keywords which perform well in the UK as a starting point, as these are likely to perform well in international territories too. Start with exact match keywords and then expand into phrase match keywords. This will allow you to see which terms users are searching for in a particular territory and therefore enable you to grow the campaign.
  • Expand your keyword selection further by using Google’s Keyword Planner to see which keywords are likely to drive the most impressions for a given territory. We have found that misspells of brand terms and products names tend to perform well in international territories and can be effective in driving more traffic to your website.


3. Localise your language

When running multi-language campaigns, it’s important to ensure that your ads resonate with different, local audiences:

  • Ensure you use a reliable translation service to accurately and appropriately translate your ad copy. Consumers are less likely to click on ads which do not read well.
  • Separate campaigns by language as this will allow you to target consumers who speak a local language differently to consumers who speak English. This is particularly important for UK brands that are looking to tap into the lucrative expat market. It is worth noting that there is no conclusive link to show that consumers will always prefer to click on ads in their local language, therefore this important to test ads in different languages across all target territories.


4. Drive more performance with effective ad copy

There are many factors which should be considered when creating ad copies for an international territory. Each territory will vary and react to ad messages in different ways:

  • Test different types of ad copy as small changes to ad copy can have a significant impact on CTR. For example, we performed a split test adding ‘/au’ at the end of the display url for an international client running campaigns in Australia. CTR for this ad copy was +17% higher than the ad copy without ‘/au’ at the end of the URL. In another test, we trialled different discount codes for a retail client who was trying to improve performance in low converting territories. By using discount-led messages in ad copy we were able to increase CTR by +22% in these territories.
  • Research the preferred terms and phrases used in your target territories, for example use “Shipping” in ad copies for the US rather than “Delivery”. It is also important to understand seasonality factors and key dates for your targets territories, for instance Christmas Day is on 7th January in Russia.


5. Don’t lose a sale due to poor landing pages

When trying to drive more onsite conversions, it’s important to test the most effective landing page for your target territory. There are a number of different ways to optimise landing pages:

  • Localise the language of the landing page to the territory that your campaign is running in. We tested a simple localised landing page in the US against a UK landing page. The localised landing page had a 95% higher conversion rate than the UK landing page.
  • In territories where you are receiving a large number of clicks through to the landing page but a low number of sales, test a localised landing page with images of local currency and clear messaging on local delivery options as this should improve conversion rate.



To sum up

In conclusion, knowing which territories already have a strong brand presence is key in generating sales internationally. By creating a worldwide campaign you will be able to understand which territories have higher traffic and sales volume and build campaigns accordingly.


When optimising your international campaigns it is important to take into consideration the differences between the different territories. By adopting some of our recommendations to help localise your campaigns to each target territory, you will be well equipped to run successful international Paid Search campaigns. Good luck!


Case Study: Building a new customer base in the UK

We are pleased to share a new case study of our work with well-known international travel brand, Sunweb. Adopting a new approach, we integrated Paid Search and Display advertising to help effectively reach a new audience and successfully help build a customer base in the UK.



Sunweb are a leading international specialist tour operator. They have an established customer base in Europe and were looking to increase brand awareness in the UK and build its customer base locally. They appointed us to help them achieve this through Paid Search and Display advertising. We believed that we could use an integrated Paid Search and Display advertising strategy to increase brand awareness and drive incremental bookings in the UK.


Our Approach

Sunweb has some brand awareness in the UK, and as such already has some existing traffic to the website from UK consumers. To capture this existing search traffic, we launched a Paid Search campaign promoting Sunweb’s holiday services through a series of text ads. Messaging was designed specifically to drive consumers directly to the website.


To expand reach further, we implemented a Programmatic Display prospecting campaign promoting Display ad placements on contextually relevant websites. This approach was designed to target new consumers who fit a pre-defined audience profile, who we believed would have an active interest in the type of holiday being offered by Sunweb.


To drive more online bookings, we analysed campaign conversion data to pinpoint the times at which most on-site conversions were made. Using this data, we commenced a retargeting campaign to pursue our target consumers at times when we knew that they would be most likely to convert.



The campaign has been a great success. Since launch, UK revenue has increased by +96% and bookings by +36% month on month. At the same time we have also managed to decreased cost per acquisition by 73%.

Channel crossing: creative offline to inform online

As Paid Search and Display advertising specialists we are passionate about running great campaigns, and are always looking to see how we can drive even more performance from them. So, when a fashion retail client invited us to attend a recent launch of their new product range, we jumped at the chance. Little did we know that it would have a wide ranging influence on the future strategy for our Paid Search and Display campaigns, not only at a strategic level, but tactically also.


In this article, we share some of the insights gained from this day, and highlight just how important offline marketing activity is for driving more performance from your online marketing campaigns.


Here we share our top 4 key takeaways from the day:

1. Planning for campaign preparation:

The day proved invaluable in helping us to create a plan for a new high performing campaign, well in advance of its launch date. Following the day, we have:

  • Created a schedule for each campaign, and are working collaboratively with the client on key campaign elements such as the development of new landing pages for the separate collections and new remarketing lists. This means that we will be able to coordinate launch times and product pushes with consistent messaging and creative to offline marketing activity.
  • Gained insight into the trends that will be directing fashion over the next 6 months. We also learned what the press had picked out as ‘the next big thing’, which since the press ultimately dictates fashion is really important. This means that we can prepare specific campaigns to push these target products – and capitalise on the buzz that the press interest will generate around them.


2. Understanding consumer engagement behaviours:

We gained a number of insights on the target audience from the client’s in-house marketing team. As a result we have been able to further refine our online marketing efforts to reach our core target audience with a specific interest in this new product range. The insights gained have:

  • Informed our optimisation strategy so that campaigns can be fully optimised with known contributors to high converting opportunities – such as time of day, device targeting and seasonality factors.
  • Improved our understanding of our target demographic which has helped us to develop highly specific remarketing lists.
  • Informed our website placement and topic targets for Display marketing. As a result we can find new ways to add further influence to the target consumer through the purchasing funnel.


3. Getting the terminology right:

We learned about the new terms that consumers and the media will use to search, find and talk about the new product range. New words entered our vocabulary, such as double-sided bags and trophy skirts. As a result we have:

  • Found new keywords to match future search queries to inform long tail keywords and additionally expand our existing keyword selection to capture more traffic.
  • Developed compelling messaging which incorporates the new terms that consumers will be using to talk about products. This will ensure that our ad copy is in tune with the latest consumer trends and terms.


4. Bringing creative synergies:

We learned more about the offline creative that will be used to promote the range and gained ideas of creative styles and imagery – in terms of colour palette, tones and formats. As a result we have:

  • Identified the best images to use for image ad extensions in our Paid Search campaigns that will present a look and feel consistent with offline marketing activity, while bringing consumers to the site.
  • Developed the most impactful creative banners to continue connecting with consumers through Display advertising while they browse other websites.
  • Applied the most effective imagery to develop compelling land pages that will keep consumers onsite and drive conversions.


In summary:

Attending this press day has not only enabled us to bring brand new ideas to our Paid Search and Display campaigns, it has given us a better view of the target audience and a clearer picture of our client’s overall strategy.


Sometimes it can be all too easy to get set in what is happening in your Paid Search and Display campaigns so that you miss the bigger picture of the overall marketing strategy.


Paid Search and Display is just one cog in the marketing machine. Gaining new business insights allows this cog to be better cut, better positioned and better oiled for what is to come, and to help the marketing machine work at maximum capacity. Seeing how the business operates first-hand has helped to drive our campaign direction over the first half of the year and we look forward to delivering some fantastic results!

Changes to ecommerce in Russia – the essential update


Over the previous few weeks there has been much written in the media about the proposed legislative changes on international imports in Russia.


Russia presents sizeable opportunities for UK brands, as consumers seek out competitively priced products and fashionable Western brands that are unavailable locally. As a result international ecommerce in Russia has experienced significant growth in recent years, with the market valued at approximately $3 billion in 2013*.


With interest in the market increasing at pace, we thought it would be useful to share an update on the market developments to-date. We talked to our contacts at Yandex (the leading Russian search engine), to get a summary of the key points;


  • Following a brief suspension, the major international courier companies, which include FedEx and DHL, are once again operating in Russia and delivering parcels to individuals as well as businesses.
  • A new import tax has been set at 30% tax on goods worth over 200 EUR. However we understand that this has not been activated yet.
  • Currently there are no restrictions on the number of parcels that an individual may receive from an international retailer. However discussions are continuing, and this position could change.


For UK brands that already operate in the region, such as ASOS, Next, and Net-a-Porter, this new legislation will have varying impact. For example, it would appear that ASOS will not be significantly affected by the new tax levy as the average purchase value tends to be lower than the 200 EUR value threshold. Retailers of luxury goods, on the other hand, could be harmed by the new measures.


Currently, the extent to which UK retailers will be affected by the restrictions is still unclear, and this is unlikely to be resolved in the immediate future. With Russia involved in an on-going politically sensitive situation, market developments may evolve further and could bring more wide ranging implications for foreign brands.


We will continue to monitor these developments and will share updates on the situation and the impact for UK brands in due course. If you would like further advice, or information on what these market developments could mean for your international campaigns and ecommerce opportunities please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Simpler Shopping On Mobile

Google’s Product Listing Ads (PLAs) are beginning to play a major role in the digital marketing strategies of retail brands. Over the past year they have soared in popularity, and this growth looks set to continue. Indeed, recent research from Marin Software shows that retail advertisers have increased spending on PLAs by approximately 300%*.


Following this growth, Google is now expanding the reach of PLAs even further, with the recent launch of a new version of mobile PLAs.


Given the size of the opportunities for retailers to connect with mobile shoppers using PLAs, we decided to put the new mobile PLA update to the test.


Understanding the new mobile PLAs:

Consumers are increasingly using their mobile devices not only to research but also to buy products. Google’s recently updated version of mobile PLAs has now made it simpler for consumers to quickly and easily browse products. One key new function is the new swipe feature, which allows users to swipe across the screen to browse all of the products. Not only does this enable users to browse more products from the initial search results page, they can also view larger product images and longer, descriptive product titles. This update has also given more retailers the opportunity to appear on the mobile PLA unit, as the screenshot below shows:


Example mobile PLAs:



Testing out mobile PLAs:

To conduct a test of the new version of mobile PLAs, we analysed performance data of an existing PLA campaign being run for one of our online retail clients, which was opted in for all devices. Mobile has consistently performed well for this client, and currently holds 14% share of traffic and a 7% share of sales from PLAs, with an outstanding conversion rate of 4.8%!


Following the launch of our campaign with the updated Google mobile PLAs, we noticed an initial decrease in CTR which could have been due to initial usability issues, with users unaware of the new scroll feature. It is worth mentioning, that even if the product is not seen, it will still warrant the impression but not the click and could affect CTR as a result.


Following the initial drop in performance, the number of clicks from mobile PLAs quickly started to increase, as shown in the graph below. Over the 8 week reporting period, the share of sales from PLAs on mobile increased by a significant +29%.


Campaign data pre- and post- launch of the new mobile PLA:


In conclusion:

Although it is early days and the test analysed a relatively small data set, there are some interesting insights. Certainly, the results suggest that Google have developed something that is far more in tune with how users are searching for and looking at products.


Furthermore, the marked increase in performance with this campaign demonstrates the growing value of PLAs on mobile for retailers, and the growing importance of mobile for connecting consumers researching the best places to buy products, both online and in store.


Therefore, if you have not already set up your PLA campaigns into mobile, we recommend carrying out initial testing by applying appropriate mobile bid adjustments. This will help to capture more searches which are relevant to your product set.


Mobile PLAs could provide a potentially profitable new way to reach new consumers and incrementally grow your business. Certainly, with advertiser investment continuing to increase, and the on-going success of the PLA format, they seem here to stay.
