Tours and Activities in the News
How to Turn Lookers Into Bookers.
Chris Torres, has recently written ‘How to Turn your Online Lookers into Bookers’: the first ever marketing book dedicated to helping tour and activity companies improve their website, their performance on Google, and their social media engagement.
‘Lookers into Bookers’ is now available and you can download a free sample or purchase the book here. (Chris tells me the US version will be available on Amazon later today.)
In a digital world full of ‘empty suits‘ and ‘gurus‘ Chris is one of the good guys, he has advised many tourpreneurs on their digital strategy and he hosts the epic Digital Tourism Show where he shares his digital marketing ideas for free. This is not a paid ad nor an affiliate link, I highly recommend Lookers to Bookers.
