Do you have 15 minutes? We recommend you check on your online presence today.

Take stock of your online presence by taking this quick check of your business. It takes just 15 minutes to see how your going.

If you’re running a tourism business, you’re probably flat out just keeping things running, attending to customers needs, managing the books and trying to grow your business. Does this sound familiar? How on earth do you manage to keep on top of changing customer behaviours and social media platforms that appear to make changes every week?

This post highlights what I consider are the “must haves” in todays digital environment. Consider it similar to the “must do’s” in your region, sure you could do lots of other things but these are what I consider are the digital highlights.

Use this as a checklist to see how you are going and the hyperlinks to educate yourself, if nothing else it may give you peace of mind.

Are you active on Instagram?

  • Do you have an active Instagram account? If not, we suggest you check out this resource.

The consumer experience is very different on Instagram to other platforms. It is one of visual inspiration and personal discovery. The opportunity for business is huge we therefor recommend you get active on Instagram. Consumers often use Instagram in the dreaming phase of the purchasing cycle. Therefore, it is essential that your images are inspirational.

Our team would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. We acknowledge that the sharing of knowledge has occurred across the lands and waterways of Australia for many thousands of years. As we continue to share stories and support small tourism businesses we try to listen to the knowledge and practice that has always existed here and consider how we can contribute to the preservation of culture and Country wherever we live and work.
