Services & Products for Food & Drink Tour Operators

In creating our SEO and Content Marketing strategy for food and drink tour operators, we focus on keyword variation and page-specific themes. We’ll narrow our keyword targets from destination/vendor related pages to our main food/drink tours page to specific tour pages. Our Content Marketing strategy then reinforces these page themes and fills the keyword gaps with targeted blogs that also support user queries like “best restaurants in downtown” or “where the locals drink”. 

Having a tour-page that converts and answers guests’ questions is key for food and drink tours. On-page layout updates that have directly contributed to conversion rate increases for our clients includ making the page content more skimmable, adding sections that highlight vendors, dietary options, the tour itinerary, inclusions/exclusions, tour-specific FAQs and tour-specific reviews. 

In many paid social campaigns you can spend blindly. At TOMIS we leverage historical data, such as booking locations and booking residences, as well as built out customer personas to define Facebook Ads targeting parameters to only spend money on the most qualified candidates in our campaigns. This data is not only leveraged in targeting parameters though, we also leverage it in ad creative and landing pages. For our Atlanta-based brewery tour client, this campaign strategy drove above average ad quality rankings and 280% more initiate checkouts  than our Atlanta-only audience.

 Leveraging the TOMIS AI ChatBot, food and drink tour operators have reduced friction in the booking process and directed users to top recommended tours based on their interests, needs and availability. We’ve created a multi-activity automated ChatBot for our Nashville client that directs users to the tour type that fits their taste, whether that’s a food tour, a whiskey tour, or a sightseeing tour with food and drink samples included. From there, in real time a user can check upcoming availability for the tour, date and number of people they’re interested in booking for.
