As one of the first companies in the south of Britain to realise the potential benefits of the Internet to the tourism industry, Resort Marketing started selling online advertising in 1995. There was a great deal of scepticism at that time, with most people having a ‘wait and see’ approach to this new medium.
In the years since, the growth of the Internet has changed the way we run our lives. The impact on the tourism industry has been phenomenal, and many accommodation providers now get a large proportion of their customers from Internet advertising.
With the award of World Heritage status to the Dorset and East Devon coastline, Resort Marketing launched www.worldheritagecoast.net in 2003, making the area a destination in its own right. With search facilities to enable site visitors to narrow down their search for accommodation by distance or by town and village, this streamlined website is clear, easy to use and proving very effective. To this have now been added www.staydo.com/cornwall and www.staydo.com/devon.
