With competition at an all-time high, finding the right site for your holiday can be difficult. Below is a list of 5 of our favourite sites/apps to use when planning out Annual Leave.

Unforgettable trips start with Airbnb. Find adventures nearby or in faraway places and access unique homes, experiences, and places around the world. Finding a place to stay in advance or last minute for the right price is simple with Airbnb. Their apps UX and UI are perfect for the new wanderlust or the seasoned traveller.

3: Frommer's
As an American I always assumed Frommer’s was an imaginary guide book created for the movie Eurotrip, but it turns out it is not fictional and does have everything imaginable when planning out adventures in a new destination. ‘The essential destination for planning the perfect travel excursion’

4: OpenTable
Make online reservations, read restaurant reviews from diners, and earn points towards free meals. One of the best things about traveling to a new place is trying out the local food, but waiting forever for a table can be a nightmare. OpenTable can help with booking and extensive reviews so you have a better idea of what you are getting into.

5: Duolingo
When traveling to a foreign land part of embracing the culture is also learning a bit of the language. Even if it is just how to ask for directions, or where to find the nearest loo, having a few keys phrases is essential. ‘Learning with Duolingo is fun and addictive.’

So no matter where on the globe you are looking to go, the sites above will help. Now as the internet is a vast space of knowledge, we may have missed out on 1 or 2, so let us know in the comment section below.

Word of mouth

Now it may seem odd for a Marketing Agency to talk about word of mouth, but as it is a crucial part of any marketing campaign and it can’t be ignored. How can a marketing agency (including us) help with word of mouth? By helping you to share your customers journey with the world.

Your greatest advertisers are satisfied customers. They can be harnessed to help generate new customers or they can be ignored and in turn become your company’s downfall.

First and foremost, BAD REVIEWS are not a bad thing!!! The best way to learn what you are not doing well is to hear back from customers that were left unsatisfied. Now you will not be able to make every customer happy, that is just the reality of life. But those bad reviews can help you to identify short comings in your current strategy.

But you can’t forget about the positive feedback. Sharing it can be done on your website or social media channels. If someone has a positive experience, the best way to get a review or testimonial is to ask for it. Remember, nothing ventured gained.

Word of mouth and a marketing strategy can go hand in hand if done correctly. If you would like more info on how to do it to promote your business to new potential customers, give us a call 0207 537 6602 or send an email to info@coretiummedia.com
