Starting up with a BOOM

Yippee Malta

The brief

Memorable experiences with a twist

The client, who at the initial kick off didn’t have a brand name, website or digital presence yet, intended to launch a dynamic new tour company across the Maltese islands, offering new concepts and striking convenience through never before seen Tuk-Tuk tours around Gozo and other distinct experiences. So, the business needed a name, a strong brand positioning, a user-oriented website and an integrated marketing strategy to hit the ground running. Whilst acknowledging the importance of collaboration with established local stakeholders, a strong digital focus was envisioned to facilitate the desired brand exposure during the launch phase and help craft a dynamic accessible brand appearance to drive potential customers to the business, creating a buzz of excitement around this new venture.

The challenge

Early birds catch the worms

This bold business had to launch itself into an already heaving marketplace and so needed an immediate strong identity and focus, followed by an awareness raising, rousing online and offline marketing strategy. We loved the idea of what they were bringing to the islands and our passionate marketeers and digital strategist delved into the novel concepts and devised an actionable digital plan to laser target the local and foreign audience, steering these  prospects right where they can book. One major component of the digital efforts involved SEO to attain greater visibility towards the audience, with a high buyer intent, searching for experiences and services around the brand’s offering.

Collaborating with the client, we created a fun and instantly memorable name for the business, we crafted the brand concept with its guidelines and put our sleeves up for the crucial research and strategic planning phase to set the sails.

Getting Set Design, Develop, Film & Produce.

Our web team custom designed and developed the multilingual website www.yippeemalta.com using WordPress and its Gutenberg Editor, which at that time was avantgarde, yet we took on this challenge to provide our client with a solid, future proofed solution. If filming with a drone, photoshoots at the sea or crafting food menus, vehicle stickers and illustrated maps, the Yippee brand got ready to roll.

STEP 03

In Full Swing across Seasons Digital Marketing & Constant Enhancement.

We set up YouTube Campaigns, cost-effective and great for generating brand awareness. The Facebook and Instagram strategy comprised a strategic content plan and a collection of campaigns, amongst others targeting people favouring outdoor pursuits and or on holiday in Malta and Gozo, families with children. Once the website picked up the desired traffic, we re-targeted the prospects on social channels and the Google Display network, as they continued browsing for their interests aiming to drive more conversion. The Google Search Campaigns drove valuable visitors searching with high buyer intent keywords such as ‘tours in Gozo’ to the website. Constant analytical review on content gaps, targeting opportunities and other crucial factors fuel the enhancement process and drive a steady growth for success.
