Understanding how your clients find you is the key indicator in any commercial strategy! This is especially true for the cruise industry. Find out how our digital marketing specialists can help you grasp and better understand: your market, your targets and your leads.

Key Factors to Conduct Your Market Analysis 

Generic Search Terms

The APAC market is heavily dominated by generic cruise search terms, meaning consumers are unaware or not sure of the more niche markets.

Cruise Deals

The price factor is important for APAC customers. When it comes to searching for cruises as a keyword, the word ‘deals’ is highly associated. Asia-Pacific consumers are no strangers to comparing prices.

Niche Markets

There are a number of specific cruise niches, the most popular being ‘river cruises’, which presents a space for smaller brands to enter the market.

Destkop vs Mobile

More than half of all cruise searches are now being conducted on mobile devices as opposed to desktops. In stark contrast to our cruise whitepaper published in 2015.
