Touristlink.com, a social network connecting travelers with local travel providers, announces new social features to help local travel businesses increase sales. The new social features are aimed at increasing integration with other social networks so that travel providers can leverage the easy to use content development features already provided by Touristlink. Touristlink is a powerful tool for small travel businesses looking to get greater online exposure and boost sales. Tour guides, hotel owners, taxi operators and more are all welcome to sign up and create free profiles on Touristlink. Travel business owners can highlight the trips and services they offer on their individual profiles.
Travel business owners can now post pictures and use simple bookmarking features to share and highlight a variety of travel destinations. The new sharing features provide numerous opportunities for business owners to easily create and share travel content on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin and Pinterest. Site founder, David Urmann, commented “Touristlink gives travel business owners a great opportunity to highlight and share destinations. Amazing pictures and stories pull travelers towards the great products being offered by the providers on Touristlink.” Touristlink.com launched in October of 2011 and so far over 5000 local travel businesses have signed up. Many of whom offer their own deals on the platform. In addition, according to rankings on Alexa.com the site is now one of the largest social networks for travel.
Touristlink is a social marketplace that lets travelers get to know firsthand the local behind the tour they are planning or the small hotel they want to stay. Travelers tired of generic tour offerings can get unique trip ideas and offers direct from local providers as well as see reviews and recommendations of the same provider from other travelers. Businesses benefit in that they get additional online exposure and can access a host of tools to help them engage customers on traditional social media platforms. It’s a great resource whether you want to get off the beaten path or just want to plan your own trip. Touristlink is managed by GotripIndia and has versions in both Spanish (es.touristlink.com) and Portugese (Touristlink.com.br).
