Cotswold Balloon Safaris offers hot air balloon flights over the picturesque Cotswolds countryside. Since its launch in 2014, Captain Mike Jennings has used the web to create brand awareness. By analysing web traffic, Mike discovered potential customers are often browsing at lunchtime and in the early evening, so he targets them at those times.
