The Approach

In mid-2022, QHotels sought our help to revitalise their marketing strategy. Our approach began with market analysis, aligning our research topics with their current strategy.

The Strategy

Through insights like YouGov’s consumer report and Google’s nation reports, we found Brexit, Covid, and Ukraine anxieties tightened budgets, yet a desire for self-indulgence persisted.

Behavioural analysis revealed shifts post-Covid, emphasising mental wellbeing and digital detox.

After examining product positioning and competitor activity based on our findings, we shifted our channel strategy from price-driven room sales to ‘personalised experiential marketing’.

Once implemented, this resulted in quick success in paid social activity with campaigns created around the theme: “Mental Health is Priceless”
