Executive Summary
While the travel sector has continued to be amongst the worst affected by events in2010 ranging from exploding volcanoes to a still stuttering economy, the industry haslost none of its hunger for perpetual innovation and change. The standout statistics from the bigmouthmedia Online Travel Report 2011 indicatethat enthusiasm for the nascent social media and mobile channels is set to continueunabated, with social strategies taking a larger share of budgets than email marketingfor the first time. Meanwhile smart phone enabled enthusiasm for mobile grows, with28% planning invest in apps development and 22% looking to build mobile sites overthe course of the next year.Digital’s share of the overall marketing budget continues to grow - from 56% in 2010to 60% in 2011 – with some 85% of companies planning to increase their spend in themonths ahead. While the majority intend to do so by means of a direct investment,some 33% will transfer the funds across from traditional channels.As you might expect, Online Travel Agents (OTAs) and comparison search engineshave the largest budget share devoted to online marketing at 90%, while airlines andhotel companies have the lowest proportion allocated to online spend, with around30% in 2010. However, this figure is set to increase to 33% for airlines and 38% forhotels in 2011.An explanation of these trends may be found in the fact that satisfaction with ROI isincreasing, and that many businesses are indicating that much effort will go intoimproving their measurement in 2011. Some 58% of those polled said that theyintended to introduce attribution modelling to calculate ROI for their online marketingspend in the year ahead.
