Technology is just like our seasonal weather systems. The forecasts are rarely accurate and it changes quickly with no forewarning.

You may have noticed, but right now, one of the biggest technology shifts in history is taking place. In many ways the coordinated changes in search engines, technology & website design have formed an internet super storm affecting businesses all over the world.

Change is common in our industry. How you react, adjust and understand the changes often determines the outcome. 

We view this internet storm as an opportunity. We are excited to announce that in the coming year we will be introducing a whole new website structure with many new interactive modules and features for self promotion.

Imagine, advertising yourself as much as you want and where you want in Canada. It is coming.

We are excited to announce that we are in the process of merging some of our websites as we develop our new look, new theme and new structure website called – www.ehCanadaTravel.com.

It has already proven to be a successful marketing move with our Victoria and Sidney websites merging 3 months ago. The traffic is up 56.8% over last year.

All paying Photo Listing clients will be treated extra special during this period of growth. Wait till you see what we have in store for you! 

Enjoy the rest of the announcements, news and tourism tips below.

PS – If you are not a paying customer then what are you waiting for? We visited your community, we researched your community, we had fun and, now, we market your community to the world. We love your tourism world so please come and support our tourism world…  thank you (politeness is a Canadian thing). [ Join Us ]

“Increase your word-of-mouth advertising, referral rate and the number of returning guests by simply providing every future guest with 2-4 custom made post cards with postage. Guests are going to send a post card, why not make it is yours. Post cards are economical, have a long shelf life and are seen by many making them a popular keep sake, fridge decal and conversation piece. The key to a successful post card campaign is to use an attractive photo on the front and to not make it too commercial or self promoting. On the back of the post card you do your marketing using descriptive text of your business and, if need be, a “grey scale” photo of your business. Usually, no extra costs when no colour.”
