An innovative approach
Following the successful launch of staysouthwest.com in August 2007, it has grown rapidly and is now performing well with growing visitor numbers, and a quickly improving presence on the key search engines.
Staysouthwest.com has been set up by a group of industry experts who, from their experience in creating web sites and running accommodation businesses, realised that the needs of both sides - accommodation partners and customers - were not yet being wholly met on one web site.
As it is designed from scratch, the site is optimised for search engines, and the team's experience in marketing accommodation businesses on-line will ensure that the marketing plan will be effective in getting the site quickly established.
The annual listing rate is currently £65 per annum per property.
Every listing is inclusive of :
- Detailed description of your property
- Up to 10 images
- Your video
- Links through to your own web site
- Interactive Google mapping and directions
- Full listing on the site against all relevant search criteria
- Ability to amend and update your listings at any point through the year
- Customer enquiries delivered direct to your email
- Any customer feedback on your property sent immediately to your email
- Genuine customer reviews can be posted to your property page
- Feature postings on our Facebook and Twitter pages
- You can add up to 10 of your own images to your listing.
- If you do not have enough images of your own, we can select additional images for you to use for free, from the StaySouthWest image library.
- If you feel your existing photography is not doing justice to your product, StaySouthWest is offering a photography service for our accommodation partners. For just £155 we can arrange for a photographer to visit your site and supply you with all the high resolution images for your own use, as well as for use on staysouthwest.com.
If you have a group of ten or more properties that you would like to list on staysouthwest.com, we can offer you a 10% discount. Please contact us for more details.
