Ad formats were also crucial for these campaigns, and we made use of numerous different ad format options. We set up call extensions with conversion tracking in order to report on how many times someone placed a call from one of our ads. Sitelink extensions were used to help direct people to other relevant parts of the website. Callout extensions were also used to help communicate the various amenities offered, with Wi-Fi, television, and self-catering accommodation being examples of these.
While working with a relatively small budget, we were able to direct 1,529 users to the website in the first month of running campaigns. These results were then digested with areas for optimisation being identified. An average click-through rate upwards of 4% has been steadily maintained since campaigning begun, with the cost of getting these users to the website slowly decreasing as a result of our ongoing optimisation efforts. Visibility of the website has also increased significantly, with an average of 32,800 impressions being achieved on a monthly basis
