    How we do it?

    We use the Agility Marketing Model for all our attractions. It provides a framework that we base all our clients marketing plans upon and highlights the appropriate strategy to use.

    The strategy works on 3 core principles; attractions should focus on growing their peaks (unless they are at capacity); they need to prioritise their spend to those with the highest propensity of converting and visitor attractions need to provide new reasons to visit to avoid the product becoming stale.

    In addition to identifying the most appropriate marketing techniques, we also benchmark key areas. Working with so many attractions enables us to measure results and identify areas our clients can improve.

    “We have now worked with Agility for over 10 years but numbers still grow. 2016 is our busiest year. “

    As a full service marketing client, you obtain an in-depth marketing plan, a review of your visitor mix and online indicators, the strategy for the year ahead and a month by month budget.

    The plan drives the day to day activity that Agility undertake for you, however, we also undertake mini reviews after Easter and Summer to ensure we cannot exploit any further opportunities.

    How we do it?

    The Facebook workshops are a new product for Agility and to date, we’ve done a couple within attractions. Before the workshop, we gain access to your results and review them against the Facebook results we obtain for our clients.

    We look at how frequently you are posting on Facebook, the content in your posts, the type of post and the reach/engagement they are obtaining. We also audit how many people check in and what you do to encourage this or grow your follower base.

    If you use advertising, we shall also review these results and show how you can improve them. If you are not using advertising, we will share what you should be doing.

    The Workshops fee covers us evaluating your results ahead of the training session, a one day workshop and telephone support after the event.
