The context were operating in Its been an interesting twelve months … The staycation … reality or media invention?: either way, Jersey had a challenging 2009 in terms of numbers Jersey not seen as a recession destination: lack of self catering in particular a limiting factor Value remains the watch-word: on-going challenge of demonstrating that the destination has more to offer than others as travellers seek value for money (which doesnt mean theyre going budget) Will they? Wont they?: much recent reporting suggests that Christmas spending was a last splurge before consumers pull in their horns … though continuing low interest rates may mean there is still money in pockets The legacy of brand Jersey: still seen as gin and jags … a perception we are keen to challenge
The context were operating in But it certainly hasnt all been bad … Access is up and is growing: were now easier to get to than ever and more people are aware of that as we support routes Euro shows little sign of improvement: making Jersey an attractive choice against other short-haul-hop destinations Growing reputation as a family destination: more on offer for families, offers opportunities to bring in a new (younger) audience A renewed sense of vitality as a destination: with growing recognition of beach sports, Jersey Live, Branchage Better than ever food offer: with top-class restaurants serving top class local produce … all of which offer an opportunity to reach a younger, more affluent audience (while offering more value for our existing base)
… so what is the opportunity? Going beyond delivering some well-known truths about Jersey as a destination … that its clean, safe, scenic, relaxing There is a new sense of vitality about Jersey as an island, so that needs to come through in our communications … delivering a clearer sense of brand Jersey – finding some unpredictable ways of delivering the well-known to really get some cut through in our media relations – and adding in some more unexpected and less predictable layers of communications, getting across the Jersey brand personality
The messages we want to deliver The core practical messaging that cover travel hygiene factors… Jersey is easier to get to than you might think: inexpensive access by air and sea Whether bucket and spade or no expense spared, Jersey delivers exceptional value Going harder on brand personality messages that will differentiate us… Jersey has a sunshine culture: more sun and the best beaches to enjoy it on Jersey has an island culture and thriving creative scene: from film to music Jersey is a gastronomes paradise, with stunning local produce and culinary offer Jersey is perfect for outdoors folk: whether to walk or try more adventurous pursuits Jersey is a dream family destination: with plenty for kids young and old, and is clean and safe
… so what is the opportunity? In order to compete, we want to move from REINFORCEMENT … of existing and well-known messages To a strategy of DISRUPTION … where we find unexpected ways of delivering our messages
