Promote Your Community Destination
As an organization that markets your destination to tourists, you know the value of having a website for your community. You may have also experienced the downfall of having too many websites which can lead to outdated information and a scattered marketing message.
Its time to focus. Provide one central location for visitors, and residents, to find what there is to see and do in your city or town. The CWP Tourism Portal pulls together all the listings for restaurants, accommodations, attractions, businesses, organizations, community events, photos, classifieds, yard sales and more into a single, attractive and user-friendly website.
By showcasing your tourism products you attract visitors and also help to attract new businesses, investors, residents and opportunities to the area.
- everything in one place • easy to find • up-to-date • mobile friendly
Events, Photos and Classifieds – Engage Your Visitors!
Events & Festivals. When tourists are checking out your community online, they want to know what’s going on! Sure all your major festivals are well advertised, but what about all the church suppers, community BBQ’s and fundraisers? Tourists love to mingle with the locals and get a feel for the community they are visiting. Give them everything they are looking for, all in one place.
Community Photos are easily uploaded and organized into categories such as scenic, events, historic, etc.
The community portal encourages resident participation through user-generated content – so it is easy for groups to add events and yard sales, and for both locals and visitors to submit photos.
It won’t be long before your new tourism portal is the online hub for all things happening in your area! The more content is added, the more the portal will show up in search results (i.e. Google, Bing).
Share content with community partners. Our plug-ins can be enabled on partner sites such as business associations, event planners, attractions, organizations and smaller sub-communities, villages, etc. so events and listings can be shared and populated throughout your community/region.
Database Management Made Easy. What truly makes MCG’s Community Web Portal unique is the easy to administer, database driven back-end.
From here you can manage all the content on the portal:
- add, remove, and update the business profile listings, categories and sectors
- approve events, yard sales, classifieds and photos as they are added by the public.
- add advertising banners to promote specific community festivals and events
- manage cancellations and alerts.
