This component provides listings of businesses, venues, and partners. Users may sort, search, categorize, and promote the businesses within your district. There are no limitations on the presentation and flexibility of your directory listings. Express the unique character of your region through the capabilities of the businesses that serve it!
Each of the components that make up our DMO solution is modular and seperable, but this one is by far the most flexible and popular. A good DMO can help improve the regional tourism in any town or city, but without an efficient and search engine friendly means of promoting its business partners, the marketing work may be less effective. SOHO Prospecting has done search engine marketing work with a variety of regions and the key is promoting local businesses through seo-concious design. The use of this component will result in an increase in the amount of tourism that the region receives and improved visibility for its business partners.
Not only that, but the DMOs also enjoy a higher level of trust from their client base. When a region has been properly marketed both online and in person, people grow familiar with it and become more willing to spend their time and money. Instead of seeming like just another face in a large crowd of familiar places, your region will now have a personal connection to potential tourists.
