An immersive, innovative piece of video content designed to convey the awe and emotion Dubai evokes, 'A day in Dubai' amassed almost 13,000 social interactions and drove thousands of page views – 89% of which were new visitors to the Travelbag website.
Our main aim was to create the most shared piece of content across the Travelbag domain, with an initial target of 7,500 social interactions.
Other targets included acquiring early-stage research traffic into Travelbag’s funnel, raising Travelbag’s profile, visibility and brand awareness, and driving sales of Travelbag’s Dubai holiday deals.
We felt the best approach to sell Dubai was to find a way to convey the awe and emotion it inspires in travellers. We wanted to convince the audience of the amazing opportunities Dubai hosts, and ultimately drive sales of Travelbag’s holiday packages.
After brainstorming a number of ideas, we felt video was the only immersive way we could portray Dubai as a destination. We were determined to create the feeling of being in Dubai, giving our visitors as close an experience to actually being there as possible.
Google generates more than 115,000,000 results for the search term ‘Things to do in Dubai’ - but most of those results are text-based. They’re not immersive experiences that excite audiences. Our use of video was a deliberately different way to reach and engage Dubai destination researchers.

When it comes to building a decent website, content really is still king.

You want to create something that’s actually worth reading – not just a scrambled up splurge […]
While it’s good to have words on your site, but copywriting isn’t just about filling up the page with words and moving on to the next task. There’s so much more to copywriting than hammering the keyboard for eight hours a day. Fulfilling the task requires a lot more than hitting the word count.
