Using Digital Marketing To Attract English Golfers

The English golf market is one of the most lucrative in the world. According to the most recent KPMG Golf Benchmarking report, England has the highest number of golfers and golf courses of all of the major European golf markets. Looking to attract English golfers is therefore a major aim for not only golf clubs in England itself, but also golf clubs throughout the rest of UK. However, many clubs often find it difficult to find a way to target them specifically using traditional marketing methods. In our opinion, using digital marketing is by far the most effective way to do so. We explain below exactly how to reach English golfers using digital marketing.

How does it work?

Using a digital marketing method known as Paid Social Media Advertising will allow you to run targeted campaigns in exchange for an amount of ad spend.

As part of creating the ad, you will be asked to enter specific targeting information (for example, people aged 20-55 who have an interest in golf and live in England). The social media platform will then use their algorithm to ensure that your adverts appear to people who match the type of people you would like to target. This will greatly increase the chance of success for your marketing campaign. It is also a much more efficient use of your marketing budget, especially compared to more traditional marketing techniques such as print.

What is Paid Social Media Advertising?

Paid Social Media Advertising is one of the most effective ways for golf clubs to promote themselves and allows you to fully utilise a platform such as Facebook as a marketing tool. As the name suggests, it differs from your standard social media post as it requires an amount of ad spend to use. However, you are in full control of how much you decide to spend and the benefits for your club are enormous.

Check out our recent blog on Paid Social Media Advertising for more information.  

Who can I target?

As well as location, there is also an extensive list of other targeting options that are available for you to use by choosing Paid Social Media Advertising. We have listed a few of the more appropriate options for golf clubs:

  • Gender
  • Age
  • Income
  • Marital Status
  • Family Status
  • Interests/Hobbies
