Our client, Portugal Travel Team , which was founded in 1996, is a well-established, market-leading Portuguese DMC. A proud member of Euromic selected to represent Portugal among 52 of the world’s leading DMCs, its reliable network of connections gives the company the tools necessary to operate throughout the length and breadth of the country.
Eduarda Neves, PTT’s Managing Director, contacted us towards the end of 2020, as she was developing a new website (which was eventually launched in July’ 21) and needed help putting together a communication strategy.
We got involved in designing the website’s overall structure, communication objectives, and content for both the website’s static and dynamic pages.
With the importance of delivering clear content that communicated effectively and met strategic goals at the forefront, we reviewed the site, which was already under development, and proposed changes and restructured communications, leveraging strengths, creating new content, setting up a blog, and regularly updating and translating into the languages of the clients PTT works with most.
Once the website had been launched, we discussed the importance of an ongoing communication strategy in line with the new website, which would involve providing continuous email marketing and social network content.
– The initial briefing provided information about DMC (Destination Management Company) operations, Portugal Travel Team’s markets, and their need to communicate effectively with their markets. The client’s main objective with this new website and content was to sell Portugal as a destination, highlighting each region’s most attractive and distinctive features and using this information to set off the range of services provided by the company.
– We then carried out competitor and partner research focusing on market positioning, comparing each one with the positioning and communication goals established for PTT.
– The work was carried out in separate stages:
The client wanted to hire someone experienced to write their content, who could guarantee tangible results, just like those they provide themselves. Over the course of the project, the relationship established between PTT and Inpokulis/Descomunal grew stronger, the latter having gained the former’s trust over time through open communications maintained to ensure customer satisfaction along the way. Overall, the client was very satisfied.
