Have bookings for your holiday home been affected by the pandemic?
Effectively marketing holiday homes is a priority to ensure that property owners like you get a high return on their investment. Therefore, we invest in the latest software, value exceptional communication and have a dedicated, professional marketing team.
We will look after you, your guests and your holiday home no matter what. Even through a global pandemic, we remain committed to doing the best we can to safely secure guest bookings.
Adapting the way your holiday home is marketed
Despite Covid-19 having a huge impact on tourism and property owners, especially with fast-changing laws, border closures and travel restrictions, we have adapted our marketing strategy accordingly.
Sunshine Beach and Noosa not only welcome people from all over the world, but also from all over Australia. Therefore, when Victoria and NSW residents couldn’t travel to Queensland, we quickly changed our messaging. Instead of advertising bookings, we created inspirational messaging and a campaign around exploring and discovering Noosa and the eastern beaches as an experience. And as somewhere special to visit when borders reopened.
To ensure we continued to get bookings for our holiday homeowners, we directly marketed to Queensland residents, in particular Brisbane and Cairns. From this we saw a surge in interstate travel and bookings!
Adapting our marketing strategies was vital in getting holiday homes like yours occupied.
How emotive marketing can attract visitors
Our Sunshine Beach Accommodation, Escape to the Noosa Hinterland campaign focused on people’s senses and Noosa’s wonderment to create an emotive response to visit. When we created this, travel was restricted and several areas were in lockdown. So, the message was about showing people how they might feel when they can get here.
As part of the campaign, the Escape to the Noosa Hinterland video generated over $20k worth of direct bookings via social media advertising and was seen by over 50K people! This was fantastic for not only brand awareness, but also for more general awareness of Noosa and the local businesses that are included in the video.
