The campaign is lead generation, due to the nature of the business there were many compelling images of rugby tours available, which were key to the display targeting and retargeting success of the campaign.

We recommended a new website refresh prior to launch and increased routes of enquiry, such as the addition of live chat.

The target audience is also a key element of PPC, as an example we were able to drill down and target rugby enthusiasts who have a high likelihood of conversion success.

Keyword focus included many long-tail variations and also careful curation of negative keywords.
