Any marketing campaign - like the new tourism strategy launched recently for the Suffolk coast - requires a good knowledge of the target audience. So just who is the typical Suffolk holidaymaker?
Clearly, a holiday in one of the most beautiful parts of the country attracts day trips and longer vacations from all sorts of people - particularly during a period when foreign holidays are still considered a luxury.
But Peter Joyner, from creative agency Shorthose Russell - hired by the Suffolk Coast Destination Management Organisation (DMO) to devise the marketing campaign - believe they have discovered a type of person who they think holidays to places like Southwold particularly appeal.
'There is a big market for people who have a good job and cash but don't necessarily want to fly away,' he said.
'Those are the ones we have to capitalise on and talk to.'
