Communications Life Cycle (CLC) - Leisure • …. or ‘the customer journey’ • Let us consider the leisure consumer perspective first • This represents a key conceptual framework for the application of new media by DMOs • DMOs must optimise their opportunities by responding effectively to the requirements of the visitor at each stage in the cycle • Media for communication between DMO and consumers will vary at each stage in the life cycle Dream/ select Plan Book Visit Dream again V

  11. CLC and e-marketing for Business Tourism • Is the CLC concept relevant for business tourism? Yes! • The business tourism application must be divided into two – communications with the meeting planner and with the ‘delegate’ • Let us start with the CLC for the planner of conventions, congresses, conferences, exhibitions etc: • Again DMOs, through their Convention Bureaux, must optimise their opportunities by responding effectively to the requirements of the meetings planner at each stage in the cycle V Options evaluation Event Planning Venue Booking + Hotel Room Allocation The event Planning the next event

  15. CLC for conference and exhibition delegates • Varying levels of Convention Bureau interest in promotion to delegates. Some leave it to the organisers; others wish to get involved. Why do it? • Because the Convention Bureau can work with the meeting planner to maximise attendance at the event and exploit the potential for follow-up visits, whether for business or leisure travel • For those that are interested, the CLC for delegates looks more like that of the leisure consumer • Let’s look again at the communication opportunities at each stage in the life cycle V Decision to attend Plan Book Visit Future trip planning

  19. Agenda • The marketing communications life-cycle and its application to leisure and business tourism segments • Three drivers of change for DMOs

  20. Three drivers of change in DMO marketing 1. The central role of technology for everyone • Consumers • Intermediaries • Businesses 2. Demanding consumers 3. Commercial players • Operating in your space, where once only you operated • They need income so they are customer focused • They have efficient business processes • They have effective distribution • And they don’t stand still - always refining and improving

  21. So, who needs a DMO? • As intermediaries, must add value or die • What can they do better than the private sector? • What are they most truly competent at? • They must become expert in exploiting the opportunities that technology offers • And encourage and enable their tourism businesses, especially the SMEs, to become expert also

  22. Agenda • The marketing communications life-cycle and its application to leisure and business tourism segments • Three drivers of change for DMOs • Nine keys to future success in e-marketing

Nine keys to future success in destination e-marketing • Reach as many potential customers as possible • Maximise the lifetime value of customers, by maintaining the relationship • Create a compelling website experience • Maintain high quality content • Deliver sales, directly or indirectly • Offer customised packaging • Engage tourism businesses, to deliver the inventory • Demonstrate return on investment – performance evaluation and benchmarking • Ensure effective electronic distribution of information to travellers and visitors, including location based services
