The Sunshine Coast has long been established as one of Australia’s primary holiday destinations, with hundreds of thousands of visitors every year flocking to the region to enjoy the white sandy beaches and the laid back lifestyle that the Sunshine Coast offers.
Smartfish have been involved in tourism marketing on the Sunshine Coast form many years, providing website development, graphic design services and specialised tourism search engine optimisation services for the local tourism industry.
Smartfish Creative’s director Chris Bourke also runs the very successful Whitsunday Apartments tourism and accommodation directory, injecting around $2 million worth of holiday bookings annually for the Whitsundays region, without spending a single cent of paid advertising, achieving this goal by specially developed SEO techniques for the tourism industry.
After monitoring the major Sunshine Coast tourism and marketing sites and gauging accommodation owners feedback, it became very clear that the Sunshine Coast desperately needs a tourism marketing platform that provides the information to attract more visitors to the region.
Smartfish are now nearing completion of the new Sunshine Coast tourism network which consists of multiple regional destination sites, providing all the information as well as online booking services for visitors that are looking for the ideal beachside holiday destination in Australia.
The new tourism marketing platform is totally self-funded, with income generated through the site via online bookings and an integrated intelligent advertising system designed specifically to capture the Sunshine Coast visitor market.
The new tourism network is expected to launch at the end of October, with the Smartfish team hoping to put the Sunshine Coast on the map via it’s new online services.
