  • Highlight the company’s product offerings and uniqueness

Tactics

  • Myriad conducted trade and market research through General Tours’ past passengers and travel agents to provide a holistic picture of the perceptions about the company and its name.
  • Myriad learned that the company is most associated with exotic destinations and known for having a unique range of product that can be customized.
  • Myriad also discovered that General Tours’ clients are highly itinerary-conscious and are most interested in learning, culture and history.

Results

  • Enthusiastic Industry and client support
