& Online Distribution
Optimize conversion from your marina website and on 3rd party platforms,
and run compelling advertising campaigns to reach new audiences
Performing well in digital marketing is the most important thing marinas can do
A compelling online presence and effective online advertising are the most essential basic requirements to ensure a profitable marine business.
Is your marina website optimized so that customers will actually see you when they search online? When they visit your marina website, does the design of the site and the words and images encourage people to book or request a berth directly?
Likewise on a third-party platform like marinas.com, when your marina appears in a list of results, do the words and images give the best possible impression so that customers choose you instead of a competitor?
If a marina does not appear in search results, customers cannot make bookings. Customers will be less likely to book with marinas which look out of date.
Marinas can’t rely on existing customers and organic growth to maintain a profitable business. Online advertising is the most effective way to reach new customers, and marina operators can be sure that their competitors are building awareness with customers who might consider their marina.
There is no substitute for experienced, skilled digital marketing expertise
Marina investors don’t have the time and expertise to keep up with all of the ways in which they need to maintain their marina’s presence. Web design, search engine algorithms, social media channels – all are important and all change regularly.
All marinas have a website but after only a few months these can become outdated as search engines change their algorithms. Styles change quickly and if customers think the marina looks out of date online, they think that their experience at the marina will be the same. Which social media channels to use and what content works for which audience can change surprisingly quickly, and marina investors can find themselves left behind.
