Founder of Tourism Hive, Darren Cronian has over 10 years experience building communities within the travel industry; from an award-winning consumer blog that attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors every month, a sell-out annual event sponsored by some of the web’s biggest travel brands, to a successful hyperlocal travel guide where he built an email list of over 10,000 subscribers within 12 months.
He’s now sharing this knowledge and expertise to help tourism businesses grow online.
Tourism Hive will build you a home online – a professional looking website that helps promote your business. WordPress is one of the largest platforms on the internet, and over 60 million people use it to power their website. All of the websites are fully responsive, so they display beautifully on smartphones, laptops, desktops and tablets.
WordPress has a large community of developers behind it, which means you will have a great choice of themes and features. Since pre-designed themes are used, and then tailored to your needs, you will save money, compared with having a website designed from the ground up. You have control of your website, but the downside is that there will be regular updates needed to ensure that the website is kept secure.
Once you know how to run the updates, it is easy to do.
It’s easy to add a new page on your website using WordPress and this means you don’t have to pay a developer every time you want to add new content. Basic training on WordPress and how to update your website is included in the quote that is provided to you.
The training will be online and will take about 1 hour to complete. You’ll also have an opportunity to ask any questions.
This 2-hour webinar will guide you through the tasks needed to get your business online. From setting up Google Analytics and Webmaster Console to making sure that your content is search engine friendly. Throughout the webinar, you will be able to ask questions and since it will be 1-on-1 training, the session can be tailored to the needs of your tourism business.
