The new Discover Dartmouth website, developed using the popular Essentials web solution from New Mind | tellUs, has been unveiled by Visit South Devon.
Designed to inspire and capture the imagination of the browser wherever they are in the world, www.discoverdartmouth.com is responsive and includes a host of new functionality, all available within the Essentials affordable format. The image led site deploys the latest destination marketing techniques to take visitors on a journey of discovery, enticing them to explore the rich variety of things to do in and around Dartmouth.
New Mind | tellUs developed the previous version of the Discover Dartmouth site in 2013. The updated version now includes a dedicated Shopping section to promote the town's range of independent and fashion shops and encourage an uplift in day visitors. The brand new blog will complement the DMO's key tourism campaigns and events throughout the year, driving interest and traffic to the site. Guest bloggers including travel journalists and local tourism businesses will be recruited to boost Visit South Devon's own blogging expertise.
The site also includes improved listings for local businesses, created in consultation with local advertisers, featuring detailed descriptions, multiple images, gradings, awards, facilities and maps.
Sarah Stride, Acting General Manager at Visit South Devon comments "The Essentials solution from New Mind | tellUs was the obvious choice for us, providing us with the ability to cover multiple sites with the same functionality and cross-promotion but convey Dartmouth's unique brand identity. We are delighted with the resulting site and we are confident that it will contribute to an increase in day visits, overnight stays, business trips and holidays in Dartmouth."
