Kintyre.org is the most popular website for the local area. It has been reaching in excess of 30,000 consumers every year through Google search alone for over 10 years. It is by far the most valuable and useful tool for sustaining repeat business and generating new consumers, not just to visit the area but to purchase goods and services remotely - something that is becoming more and more important to sustain small businesses.
Our website is the first thing thousands of people see each month when considering a visit to Kintyre or purchasing related products so it is of the utmost importance that the region is presented well and showcased to it's very best, providing rich and engaging information about local events, attractions, shops and businesses, and of course hospitality such as hotels and restaurants.
Lower visitor numbers across the UK indicates that a more collaborative showcase is required to help sustain local businesses and attract visitors to this beautiful part of Scotland, Kintyre.org is beneficial and essential for businesses that rely on tourism for income.
It's very important that as many local businesses, shops and accommodation continue to support this website and the additional work that goes on behind the scenes each day and with prices as low as just £29/year to feature your shop or small business it's simply sensational value and accommodation with direct booking links are just £199/year.
See the example below of how your business will be listed on our website, and the display will also be similar on other websites in our portfolio.

Kintyre.org receives a range of enquiries from potential visitors and consumers throughout the year and proves to be a popular first point of contact instead of using the local TIC or Visit Scotland main information desk. There are many reasons for this including the ease of which digital communication can take place quickly or when convenient.
Enquiries might include the need for directions, bus and ferry timetable information, recommendations for popular accommodation, holiday homes for sale or to purchase a particular item of jewellery or art.
Of the 30,000+ website visitors each year, approximately 50% go directly to accommodation which demonstrates the high level of users planning a visit to the area, it suffices to say any accommodation that has failed to make use of Kintyre.org may have lost out on over 150,000 consumers (and potential visitors) during the last 10 years.
Five years ago it would have been sufficient to have a static website servicing geographical regions but today tourism is such a competitive marketplace it is essential to maximise every opportunity for marketing and customer generation, there simply is not enough time to be complacent or expect visitors ad hoc.
There are other websites for the area, some of which are part time, and others such as Visit Kintyre which predominantly services the local region and attracts approximately one quarter of the visitor numbers Kintyre.org generates. These sites are great contributors to the digital presence, but it is simply not enough in todays digital world.
Why is Kintyre.org different? Kintyre.org (and associated websites including Argyll.org and Westscotland.com) is a full time professional marketing platform reaching in excess of 150,000 consumers each year from natural search alone - this is people looking for information about you, about this area, and about visiting.
To maximise consumer conversion we connect with consumers through a number of fantastic media and opportunities that require full time attendance including managing social pages - such as Twitter, Facebook and Pinterest, emailing contacts with information about events, offers and new products and services, updating and adding new website content, supplying newsworthy information to newspapers, advertising and marketing in magazines, the list goes on.
Remember, your business is your responsibility so you need to express yourself. There are a couple of things you need to know about marketing. One - businesses market themselves - they write editorial, create adverts, invent offers, create news - it's all done by the business not third parties. Two - marketing is about getting everything everywhere, rich information duplicated across to as many different target consumer groups as possible.
One golden rule about marketing is simple - 'don't presume people know who you are and what you do'. Some people don't listen to general conversation, others won't read the local newspaper, some people have a perpetual digital life so it's important that we all learn to connect with those channels that can help just like Kintyre.org
Wouldn't it be useful to just be able to email some content and let us do the rest - send a list of news items to the local newspapers on a monthly basis, to magazines, upload new photos and offers to social channels - the list is endless but we can't help you if you don't get in touch.
All we ask is a minimum subscription each year starting from £29 for 12 months to be able to work with you. Get in touch with us by emailing email@example.com or calling 0845 4166237. We'd be delighted to hear from you.
