Can I mobile app help you attract more visitors to your Colorado tourist destination? Can a mobile app help you engage your tourist and generate more business for your local businesses? Yes! We believe so.
Using apps for traveling is certainly not a new concept. Travelers have been using apps to develop itineraries, research different site seeing attractions, figure out where to eat lunch, and tell others about their experience since smart phones became the norm.
But does your tourist attraction need that?
Let me guess. You have a website. You have Yelp. You have Trip Advisor. Maybe you have Google My Business. But are these enough? The first question I would ask is how are you getting people to these sites? Good SEO goes a long way for educating a traveler of their site seeing options. But that still requires them to go out and look for it first.
What if they could find all they needed in one place, without navigating multiple websites, without googling and without the uncontrollable (and let’s face it, often disastrous) variable of review sites?
With a mobile app, they can. Tourists can download one app and find everything they need to know about your town or tourist attraction. You can attract and engage visitors. All with one quick download.
Here’s features only available with a mobile app:
1. Push notifications: Send out notifications directly to the phone. You can even time notifications with a particular location so the notifications are timely and relevant.
2. GPS: Load specific maps for itineraries or trails and guide users along the path.
3. Easy Photo Sharing: Tap into the strength of an image by using the built in camera to take a photo, add your own watermark or logo and allow the user to share on social media sites.
Of course, you still can also share your unique story, allow users to review you, offer coupons and deals, give suggested itineraries and much much more. The possibilities are endless!
