delicious. editorial director Kerrie McCallum said the numbers are reflective of a renewed content strategy focused on changing consumer needs.
“To address the cost-of-living pressures Australians are facing, we set out to provide our audience with recipes from quick and healthy midweek meals through to desserts designed for effortless entertaining at home.
“Our travel content has been amplified following the resurgence in interest in international destinations and airline experiences, delivering a 24 per cent increase in search traffic month-on-month* to the site section. Also proving incredibly popular was content that spoke to the mindset of the country during key cultural moments, such as the coronation of King Charles III and Mother’s Day,” she said.
“American Express delicious. Month Out, our month-long event encouraging people to get out and enjoy the rich dining culture of their city with exclusive offers, events and experiences, returned to Sydney, Brisbane, Melbourne and Adelaide in May. It was the most successful campaign to-date, exceeding all of our metrics, including more than doubling the number of visitors to the site section year-on-year*.
“To reach a premium food audience of 1.696 million Australians is a testament to the work of the entire delicious. team. We are way ahead of our competitors and thrilled with the results,” McCallum added.
