As Firmdale Hotels were already a world-famous brand, our goal for their digital marketing was simple – drive more online bookings directly through the site. Using selective, intelligent audience targeting in both the UK and US, and promoting the value of booking direct over using the OTAs, Firmdale Hotels came out on top.
What Did They Need? A Mindblowing Global Digital Marketing Strategy
A distingushed hotel chain, and the hotels of choice for the discerning elite, Firmdale Hotels approached UP Hotel Agency to firmly put them on the digital map, building up their numbers of direct online bookings, and avoid losing money to commission for online travel agents. With 10 properties across the UK and the USA, Firmdale had to take centre-stage to stand out as a global brand.
