TUI Travel’s Brands See a 20-50% Increase in Website Traffic After Standardizing on HubSpot’s Marketing Platform

The Challenge
The Solution
The Result

Having undertaken an internal assessment of TUI’s e-marketing strategy, this travel company, specializing in air travel, found that existing programs were inadequate in delivering expectations. A substantial hurdle was that multiple divisions of the business were using different platforms for delivering online marketing. This created duplicates, inefficiencies and lack of collaboration. Ultimately, these disparate platforms were costing leads and thus sales. Another weakness was that TUI’s websites and general online marketing attempts were not generating enough sales growth.

TUI were also relying solely on an existing database of clients for online marketing campaigns. This meant that insufficient leads were being generating and nurturing of existing customers was poor. TUI’s required a new platform and their requirements were:

  • Merge multiple CMSs into a single platform.
  • Increased lead generation and conversion through more effective social media campaigns.
  • Improved customer engagement.

TUI’s new COS platform in HubSpot ensured a state of the art content management system to be put in place which:

  • Created a more personalized experience for prospects resulting in improved lead conversion.
  • Delivered an inbound marketing strategy which improved both quality and quantity of leads.
  • Utilized HubSpot's smart content and fields on bespoke forms which enhanced the user experience and increased response rates.
  • Used HubSpot’s Marketing Automation Tools to segment their contact list based on specific destination and other requirements.
  • HubSpot’s COS enabled TUI to concentrate on people. Multi-device, context-aware content delivered intelligent conversation and created relationships as well as a great looking online presence.

HubSpot provided a full marketing platform for this travel company. It would meet TUI’s entire e-marketing needs. TUI could move beyond just using email, and implemented a complete inbound marketing strategy. As one of the key marketing areas, social media traffic was increased by over 170%. HubSpot was so effective at organizing data, a huge improvement in up-selling was experienced almost immediately.

TUI were delighted to announce that in the first year, they experienced:

  • 35% increase in monthly site traffic.
  • 20% increase in monthly leads
  • 106% increase in revenue for particular channels of business.
"While I work with a lot of small companies, I am part of a global company and it was an important factor in my decision making that HubSpot could grow with TUI."
Rebecca Heidgerd, Director of E-Commerce, TUI North American Education

Take the Next Step

What then, is the solution for achieving our integrated B2B sales and marketing goals?

Salesforce Sales and Marketing Integration Roadmap.

Thousands of companies in the US alone have subscribed to the services of Salesforce and a marketing platform. Perhaps they have even begun to integrate the two using an “out-of-the-box” integration solution. Unfortunately, current solutions only “map and sync” data between the two platforms. This alone won’t suffice-- an expert level approach is often now necessary to ensure proper implementation every step of the way.

We must define and develop a methodology that provides an infrastructure to streamline both platforms to their full capacity. As such, teams can focus on the most important goal-- identifying the best opportunities that lead to conversion to revenue. As such, an enhanced roadmap would allow marketing teams to more comprehensively partner with sales teams, so that sales may improve on to maximize growth.
