After months in the planning and development, we are delighted with our new-look VisitMidWales.co.ukwebsite re-launched last week in readiness for the Easter weekend. Early results show a huge 70% increase in visitors to this new website compared to the same period last year.
New Key Features
It's fully responsive: The website now automatically adapts to the screen size visitors are viewing it on. This is essential to cater for the increasing number of people using their phones and tablets to browse and book online.
New 'Holiday' section: themed pages, promoting for example: 'Romantic Holidays' and 'Pet Friendly Holidays'. Great for visitors to find what they need quickly and easily - they're a brilliant opportunity to promote your business to specific target markets (available for non-accommodation members shortly).
Enhanced business listings: Your web entry/entries now have new layouts and content tabs so that visitors can more easily navigate your information and find what they need.
Shortlisting facility: visitors can now shortlist their favourite properties/attractions/venues/events. This shortlist can be saved as a PDF or printed there and then; ensuring they don't forget about those places (hopefully yours!) that have caught their eye.
Visitor enquiries: With the closure of many Tourist Information Centres, MWT is trialling the publication of our office telephone number for visitors to call if they need help to book accommodation/plan their trip.
It's important to stress that we remain COMMISSION FREE for bookings and we are not an agency. Our focus remains to help you generate bookings and manage these directly yourself.
Don't Forget! -
All MWT members in Mid and West Wales will have an entry on this website as part of your membership, so it's more important than ever to ensure that you regularly update your prices and availability.
The new website will shortly be using 'App images' from the Guestlink database, so if you haven't already added any within this section, please do this as soon as you can. If you'd like any help or advice re-sizing images please contact us.
If you need us to re-send your Guestlink log-in details, or if you have any questions or feedback about the new website, please don't hesitate to get in touch.
