Using planbooktravel for local tourism
Listing tourism businesses and adding user generated content to popular travel websites offers exposure to a new audience and attracts visitation.
planbooktravel.com.au is one of Australia's leading travel web sites and offers Visitor Information Centres, Local Tourism Associations and Regional Tourism Organisations, a wide range of opportunities to gain exposure for businesses and locations that you represent.
User Generated Content
There has been a lot of discussion about 'User Generated Content' (UGC) and its positive impact on travel and tourism. The site offers users the tools to add blogs, reviews (features articles), photos, links and comments about Australian locations. UGC helps to attract interest, inspire travellers and encourage visitation to the area.
What is innovative about the site is its catalogue process. Articles and photos are linked (tagged) to locations and those articles then appear on Regional and State pages as 'recently contributed articles', 'popular stories' and 'editors pics', giving smaller towns greater exposure.
planbooktravel is quickly becoming recognised as one of Australia's leading resources of destination information and content added to the site is found by search engines and can drive traffic to your web site and area.
Travel Directory for Businesses
To complement the publishing site, planbooktravel has launched a new directory service which can be found at: business.planbooktravel.com.au . The directory listings are displayed on planbooktravel in the relevant location and regional pages and appear in the site search function. The new directory offers VIC's, LTA's, and RTO's the opportunity to increase your presence on the site by allowing free listings.
planbooktravel appreciates the support of Australian Regional Tourism Orgnisations that have reviewed the service offering and recognise that the site positively promotes travel and tourism across Australia.
