If your business is in the hospitality, accommodation or tourism industry you need to be using the Domestic Growth Insight Tool on the Tourism Industry Aotearoa website.

DGiT provides incredible insights that are invaluable to your marketing strategy. The free tool allows businesses to identify which kiwi leisure travellers you should target, their motivation for travel, their preferred type of accommodation & the best ways to market to your target audience.

Overwhelmingly the findings identify that people are best reached on Facebook prior to deciding on a travel destination and once people start planning they are best reached on Google.

How to reach your target market through Facebook.

Now that 2.9 million people or 61% of all Kiwis have an active Facebook account, the Facebook newsfeed is where you can capture the interests & hearts of people searching for their next travel adventure or family holiday.

What businesses may not realise is that only small amount, sometimes only 0.5% of your page followers on average will see your updates in their newsfeed. This is why setting up a Facebook advertising or ‘Facebook Ads’ campaign is the key to reaching your target audience.

By running a Facebook advertising campaign with a small budget of even $50-$100 you can get your business in front of thousands of targeted potential customers.

If you want help to increase your brand awareness on Facebook, Dubzz can assist with your social media strategy.
