SALES & MARKETING ACTIVITY
Jetstar Opportunity: Advertise on margaretriver.com landing page
Supported by Tourism WA and Australia’s South West, MRBTA invites members to participate in a Jetstar digital post-booking marketing campaign taking place during March 2020.
Members have the opportunity to advertise on a margaretriver.com landing page which is linked to from Melbourne-Busselton flights post-booking emails.
Opportunity: Share your product with inaugural flight passengers
As a special welcome for passengers arriving on the inaugural flight from Melbourne on 25 March, each passenger will be presented with a gift bag as they arrive on the tarmac at Busselton. Passengers on the flight will include a small group of VIP guests from the media and travel trade.
This is an opportunity for your business to gain exposure to an audience which is highly excited about discovering the region, after booking seats on the very first flight to Busselton from Melbourne.
Visitor Information: Drive Times, Transport Options
It is critical that new visitors to the region have a full understanding of how to navigate during their stay, and operators are strongly encouraged to share advice with visitors prior to their arrival in the region. The ‘Transport & Getting Around’ page at margaretriver.com has information on drive times and transport options which can be copied and pasted into your own communications.
Full information on car hire options at the Busselton Margaret River Airport will soon be available via the City of Busselton, and this webpage will be updated as new information is available.
