Challenge

In 2020 and 2021, many previously ardent travellers were reluctant to travel due to border restrictions, financial constraints, or health reasons. Travel marketers needed a way to reach travellers who were enthusiastic to travel. As markets began opening up in 2021, the Fjord Norway team needed a way to raise their region’s profile in a targeted way, and one which they could measure.

Approach

Sojern and Fjord Norway launched two campaigns across 2021. The first campaign promoted the region's hidden gems during summer to in-market travellers in Germany, Netherlands, and Denmark. Sojern used captivating video to raise awareness, and native advertising to drive users in the consideration phase to the Fjord Norway website where they could engage with longer-form articles about the region. The second campaign was in response to the opening of Lufthansa’s Frankfurt to Bergen route, and used video to inspire would-be visitors.

Results

Sojern drove high personalisation by identifying users who were actively searching to travel to Norway or competitor destinations, and encouraging them to learn about Fjord Norway. Over the course of the two campaigns, Sojern raised the awareness of Fjord Norway to these key origin markets, and maximised engagements with people who were actively searching for travel. Sojern drove over 18,000 visits to the Fjord Norway website, with an efficient use of Fjord Norway’s spend.
