Introduce a Three Device Strategy – Mobile, Tablet and PC
Today’s travel consumers tend to use more than one digital device to plan and book a holiday.
Travel consumers want to access relevant, useful information on whichever device they choose.
So your digital marketing strategy needs to support a cross-device customer journey.
According to Gartner:
• About 65% of all online purchases are started on a smartphone
• About 85% of travel bookings are completed on a desktop or laptop
Karen Harding, Marketing Manager explains
“Use of tablets is rocketing, with 15% penetration now and 134% growth predicted by 2014.
Tablet usage is driving mobile travel bookings so it makes sense to have tablet apps as well as mobile apps and a mobile-optimised website.”
Introduce relevant content in channels favoured by your travel customer.
Consider the three channels, Smartphone, PC /Laptop and Tablet to reach your potential holiday makers with relevant content and device-savvy travel software.
Make sure your website is mobile-enabled. The mobile website should be formatted for a smaller screen with easy access to the most important functions such as inspirations, prices and a simplified shopping basket.
In meeting your business and digital objectives, consider how the customer journey may span desk and mobile devices to give your customer an engaging user experience.
