We are pleased to announce web design and online marketing services catering to the unique needs of the touring industry.
Touring industry websites may include an online ticketing function, and are keyword optimized to achieve maximum search engine traffic for touring company operators.
Unique Web Design Challenges
Touring companies face some unique challenges. Their customers are often new to the area, have little time to spare, and frequently use search engines to find, research, and book tours. Our touring websites are designed to include an interface to Zerve that provides instant online ticketing and reservations in real time, so customers can instantly book their tours without the need for time-consuming phone calls or a trip to the touring company to purchase their tickets.
Touring websites designed by PMI feature compelling graphics designed to impress customers and to entice them to spend additional time on the website, time that often leads to ticket purchases. Website pages typically include one or more calls to action to book a tour immediately to ensure availability.
A Hilton Head Island Touring Company Website Design Example
We recently completed a touring website for Sonny C Charters, a dolphin and nature touring company based in Hilton Head Island, SC. According to company president Sonny Compher, PMI exceeded his expectations:
“My website was 10 years old and in need of an upgrade. PMI was recommended to me by Zerve, the company providing my online ticketing service. I emailed Al at PMI and immediately heard from him. Al worked closely with me on every detail, and we went live within two weeks. He also promoted my site using a press release and through search engine optimization. My website is now at the top or close to the top on every search for my type of activity. Some searches have my site completely dominating the first page. He returned every phone call and email promptly, and I couldn’t be more pleased.”
Here are some screen shots from Sonny C. Charters’ new website:
