The Tourism Network Practical tourism marketing advice and support
Over 80 destinations and more than 4000 accommodation businesses and visitor attractions have benefitted from our creative marketing advice, training, copywriting and publishing services in the 25 years since Susan Briggs started The Tourism Network. We can help make your job easier and save you money.
The Tourism Network offers practical advice to help you increase profits, visitor spend and numbers. We focus only on projects we believe in and enjoy so we can really throw our energy and enthusiasm into finding and creating new markets and ways of working for our clients. Here are some of the tourism industry services that could benefit your business or area:
Tourism marketing: Need to stand out from the competition and generate better profits or higher visitor numbers? Let us develop an action-oriented marketing plan for you or undertake specific aspects of marketing for you. This could include anything from writing press releases or improving your search engine rankings to undertaking a major campaign on your behalf. We've undertaken marketing for many tourism businesses and destinations over the last 28 years but pride ourselves on still coming up with new ideas and ways to stretch small marketing budgets even further.
Training: Would you like to improve your marketing skills, or just get some fresh input to your marketing? We develop and deliver practical and fun training sessions and marketing master classes. These include half day, full day and residential workshops as well as toolkits, virtual online classes and how-to publications. Participants leave our events full of ideas and advice they can implement immediately.
Facilitating meetings & events: Clients often ask us to facilitate board or partnership meetings, finding our independent advice invaluable. We help to increase collaboration, bring together diverse "factions", generate new opportunities and work through tricky problems. We also organise larger scale events such as tourism marketing conferences, either independently or on behalf of clients such as VisitBritain.
Writing and publishing: Our writing and publishing services range from developing copy for brochures and websites to writing business support toolkits and books. Susan Briggs is author of numerous successful tourism industry publications. We develop "Tourism Knowhow Kits" on a variety of tourism marketing topics to help businesses improve their profits and exploit new market opportunities.
Our private sector approach is welcomed by both small and large organisations. Most of our business comes through recommendations from happy clients. We've deliberately stayed small and don't use associates or external consultants so you will know exactly who is working for you. Every project we do is different. Our shortest projects take just a day (often facilitating events or brainstorming new ideas) but we've also been retained for up to eight years.
If you'd like to put our tourism expertise, energy, enthusiasm and experience to work to benefit your tourism marketing and generate bigger profits, please email Susan Briggs or call 01765 688178. We'll give you a direct and honest assessment of whether we can help you and how, as well as being happy to give fixed prices for all projects so you know exactly what you're getting for your budget.
