Chatsworth House Trust

Chatsworth House is a spectacular stately home to the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire. Chatsworth estate offers 35,000 acres of beautiful land and a wide range of events within the house and gardens throughout the year.

Chatsworth began working with Digital Clarity from summer 2013 to promote exciting events and has developed into creating a new strategy to engage visitors to explore the English heritage of Chatsworth House.

OBJECTIVES

The most immediate goal was to move focus from PPC brand spend, to non brand terms with a view to engaging new visitors.

  • Increase non brand relevant traffic
  • Increase ticket sales online
  • Increase awareness of Chatsworth House, gardens and events to families looking for days out

STRATEGY

Optimising a not for profit account within Google Grant limitation was a challenge. In order to shift the focus to non brand searches we first had to increase CTR’s and quality scores from landing pages in order to allow for lower CPC’s.

PPC Training 

  • To train the team at Chatsworth House to have a deeper understanding of AdWords PPC

PPC

  • Reduce brand keywords and focus on specific match types of “family days out” & “days out with the kids” related terms
  • Promote specific seasonal events and exhibitions
  • Localised targeting and bid strategies to optimise within the $2 max bid limit

Analytics

  • 95% of paid traffic comes from non brand
