HUELLA IN HONG KONG


Launched Hong Kong site- Huella.com.hk- in 2000
Served Hong Kong and Macau
Despite setbacks, revenues increased from HK$48.4 million in 2002
to HK$80.7 million in 2006(66.73% growth)
Still revenue growth less than expected and performance lower
than in other markets
Discrepancy between Hong Kongs low interest in online travel and
its high internet usage penetration(59%) & techno-savvy population

Existing Research

study on Hong Kong market
OBJECTIVES
General purchasing habits and attitudes towards travel and vacations,
particularly online travel
Awareness of the Huella brand
Attitudes and perceptions towards the brand & its Hong Kong website vis-vis competitors
Usage pattern vis--vis competitors

Key Findings From Previous Research


Brand Awareness : Low ; Majority of them have never heard of Huella
Brand Image : Used Collage technique, perceived as Risky and Unreliable
Brand Positioning : Cateogarised Huella with other online agents as
Group A ; traditional agents in Group B
Group A : used only for checking prices not for buying tickets
Group B : Used since many years, perceived as more economical and
reliable
Usage Pattern: Huella mostly used for information provider and purchase
taken place from traditional brick and mortar agent.

PROBLEM STATEMENT
Management Decision Problem
What steps can be taken to increase Huellas market share in Hong Kong ?

Marketing Research Problem


Design a research to confirm the findings of earlier research
Check the representativeness of earlier research
What are the factors leading to Huellas riskiness perception
Whether incentives or endorsements can improve Huellas riskiness image
What characteristics of Brick and Mortar travel agents appeal to Hong Kong consumers
How many consumers use Huella only to compare the prices
