Websites are not what they once were! Tourism websites need to be informative, eye-catching and user-friendly. If your website doesn’t tick these boxes you are letting potential customers slip through your fingers. This three-part course will teach you what the most important aspects of a tourism website are and how to track the effectiveness of your website.
We will also provide some practical DIY development advice and give you tips on working with web-developers.

Testimonials

Fantastic webinar - I got so much out of this webinar I was bursting at the end of it. (And I did it outside of my work hours so not paid for it!) Stayed at work afterwards & wrote a plan of attack & have already completed 60% percent of it.

Carole McGibbon (Alex Beach Cabins and Tourist Park)

Thanks very much. As a part-time regional business, we appreciate the opportunity to link into very specific training such as this. We are looking forward to applying specific recommendations to our recently-updated website, which obviously still needs tweaking.
