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.
