Tourism studies over the last few years suggest that 52% of all holiday makers make use of the internet to research potential destinations for their holidays with activity-led vacations particularly important to the over 50’s and the under 35’s. To this end we are going to enrich our Love Brixham website with an Activity Index that gives our visitors an insight into the many sporting and cultural opportunities within our town.
For this to be successful, we need people who are knowledgeable about particular areas to step forward and write copy to help convince readers that Brixham is the tourist destination for them. Martyn Green, for example, who has written several books on sea fishing, is writing an angling section but we need creative individuals, who are knowledgeable about their subject area, to also make contributions upon a much wider sporting and cultural field. We need to let people know about what is going on in the town, what is special about it and how they can find out more, and what opportunities there are for them if they come on holiday to Brixham.
IF we can get the idea off the ground, this will not only give Brixham a significant edge over rival destinations in attracting people to our town but also share with our own residents ideas and activities that may not have occurred to them. It can not only bring people from far away but also from the outskirts of our own town, sharing news and events with our own people to involve them more closely in the bustling life of Brixham.
So, do you have a subject about which you feel passionate and are you prepared to share that passion with others? If so, please write to Martyn.firstname.lastname@example.org to outline your idea. We are particularly looking for people who can contribute on the subjects of bird watching, walks and dog-walking, climbing, local history, heritage locations and places to visit, climbing, sailing, canoeing, wild swimming, rugby, water sports, natural history etc.
Basically, think about it from your own point of view. If you are excited and passionate about something that you do, or which can be done within Brixham, can you share that enthusiasm with others to attract visitors to Brixham?
In addition, if your business has links to a particular area, we will also give it a free mention within the relevant pages, which could be really useful in attracting new customers for you.
