Luxury Escapes : Launchpad6 help us make our next TV ad

Luxury Escapes teams up with Launchpad6 to find a new and innovative way to capture the attention of travellers.

Who are Luxury Escapes

Luxury Escapes is a member of the Lux Group one of Australia’s leading e-commerce groups. Founded in 2010, it currently operates 15 websites and is recognised by BRW as the fastest-growing company in Australia and is also recognised by Deloitte as the #1 Business Leader.

As the world’s fastest growing travel business, Luxury Escapes reaches up to 3.2 million travellers each month with exclusive limited time offers at ‘insider’ prices. Members of Luxury Escapes receive email updates as soon as a new deal is launched and because offers are limited, members will always get the first chance to purchase a deal.

The challenge

Luxury Escapes is Australia’s largest advertiser in the travel/tourism industry. A modern and innovated company we were looking for a new way to capture the attention of potential travellers. By moving away from the traditional agency model we knew we would get something extraordinary.

Winning Entry - The Instatraveller

We know our members love to share their travel experiences with their friends on social media, we just had to find a way to capture their experiences and share it with viewers across the country.” Blake Hutchinson, General Manager, Luxury Escapes.

Luxury Escapes decided to run a “Make our Ad” competition and tap into the collective creativity of our members and aspiring media professionals. We invited budding film-makers from all over the globe to capture the world’s best holiday on video. The video judged the “best” would be turned into a television commercial and aired across Australian television networks in 2017.

What better way to gain insight into our customers, their interests, likes and motivations than from the customers themselves, all we needed was a platform to capture and manage the information.

The Launchpad6 Solution

Luxury Escapes needed a platform that was both stable and trusted and a company that provided timely support as it pioneered new ground through contest. In our mind, only Launchpad6 offered both the service and platform features we were seeking.
