Have a great website

A website is the backbone of practically every business in today’s digital world. It’s almost as if you don’t exist if you don’t have a website. 

Always remember to keep your customer in mind when developing your website. Make sure your website is simple to use and navigate. Your website should really be responsive, which means it should look good on any device, such as a phone or tablet.

Your company profile will appear in Google searches that contain specific search phrases. This is a simple and cost-effective strategy to boost your SEO and increase web traffic to your travel firm.

Find your niche on social media and create a strategy around it 

Social media remains one of the most popular ways to engage with customers, but it can be challenging. Rather than spreading yourself thin by posting to multiple  platforms, concentrate on just one or two and post on a regular basis. Choose the social platforms that your customers are most likely to use, for example Instagram!  

Create a business profile on the platforms you choose as it will help to keep the content you post centred and relevant to your customers, but a business profile also provides you with several enhanced features such as demographic information about your followers and enhanced reporting about the performance of your social media page, which you can relate to your business.
