The travel agency Expedia is the leader in the online travel industry. The website offers opportunities to book airline tickets, hotels, car rentals, cruise trips and other vacation packages. Our Expedia case study looks into how we helped them succeed.
GA Agency and Expedia have been working together for the last few years. As part of this successful partnership, the client reached out to us seeking support on a content marketing initiative. Expedia had a magazine/blog section on their website whose aim was to provide valuable content to its readers in a form of media rich articles full of travel tips and inspirations.
In order to help Expedia to reach its goals, GA Agency’s Head of Performance decided that the Agency should focus its efforts on a set of effective and measurable activities across the space of content marketing.
Collaborating with a key member of the relevant department, they started by performing an extensive keyword research while brainstorming several ideas for publications. Once that was done, GA team managed the writer and publisher section, along with content production and setting a tight publishing timeline.
We utilised our extensive network of highly vetted 2000+ publishers, and, in the end, selected more than 450 travel industry related influential quality publishers to share our 450+ publications.
One of the key criteria while setting the strategy for this campaign was to focus only on highly measurable activities, so that the client could easily get a sense of how effective the content marketing campaign was.
We achieved a growth of 1,500,000 sessions with an average transaction increase of more than 10x,
Our KPIs show that this campaign was effectively extremely successful, as in just 6 months it produced an increase of more than 80,000 keywords that the magazine ranked for on Google.
