PAY PER PAX – Getting the Most of Paid Online Advertising

THURSDAY, JULY 28, 2011 – 10:00 AM PDT

For years, it was pretty much impossible for small properties and boutique tour operators to have the budget to build a brand campaign through advertising. Although our products may be the best in the business, it was almost impossible to actively place your brand in front of consumers through paid advertising.

Thanks to our friends at Google, Bing, and Yahoo, now the little guys get a voice. Trip Advisor started setting a trend in consumer rating sites for tourism and the floodgates opened.

But how can we decipher where to spend the little money we have? How can we create a strategic online paid marketing plan that will result in sales?

This webinar will take a deep look into web advertising and what some top brands have been doing to get a share of sales through paid advertising on search engines, social networks and flash sites. We will address current states of advertising platform effectiveness and how we can best use each platform to reach our desired audience.
