Fast track to success for Silver Tray

train winds it's way through picturesque mountains

Silver-Tray is a brand-new travel company with a mission: make it easier for travellers to book European rail vacations.

The usual method of organising trains, hotels, transfers and activities can be incredibly hard work, so Silver-Tray created a new website where people could create a personalised itinerary in just a few simple clicks.

It’s a great idea, but in order to spread the word, Crowd were briefed to create Facebook videos to drive traffic to the website. Our approach included an A-B split to test two different creative propositions.

Within just 3 weeks of launching, and no established customer base, the campaign has produced over 33,000 link clicks, over 750,000 views, a reach of 1.2 million, and over 2 million impressions. The ads also enjoyed great engagement with commentators tagging in friends to share the video content. And with dwell time on the website lasting over 2 minutes, this further proved the creative was attracting the right target audience.

Results were measured through a thorough reporting strategy using custom Google Analytics events to track key activities. With the use of a carefully planned UTM format, we were able to judge the success of our campaigns and accurately record the activity of visitors once on site.

A Crowd built social post for Silver Tray getting great engagement.

And although our campaign has only just begun, the journey looks set to be incredibly exciting.
