Help your business thrive. Join the Tourism Network. It's FREE!
When you work for a small business, how do you find out what works and what doesn't? How do you get practical advice and support?
I created The Tourism Network to help answer these questions. Whether you want to make more money or just make your life easier, I created the Tourism Network to help you get some inspiration and new ideas.
Is it really free?
Yes, it really is free! You're probably wondering why? The reason is simple: after working in tourism marketing for over 30 years, I'm in the fortunate position of now being able to spend some of my time doing something that I find very satisfying and enjoyable - helping tourism businesses to flourish. Because I've done it for so long, it's relatively easy for me to write articles, offer advice and come up with solutions to tourism issues.
Membership of the Tourism Network will always be free. Running a paid membership organisation can be time consuming in terms of administration and chasing subscriptions so I find it simpler to just make it free. From time to time, I offer paid training courses or campaign opportunities (e.g. how to attract more direct bookings) but there's never an obligation to take part in those.
What does the Tourism Network actually do?
We arrange tourism marketing events, offer advice through our online hub, and send out regular updates about industry issues, with marketing ideas and advice. We also run targeted campaigns. Our next one will focus on attracting more online bookings for your business.
Who is it for?
The Tourism Network is for tourism businesses such as accommodation, attractions, activity providers, and food and drink.
Would you like to stop wasting time and move forward in your business?
Getting the right advice is part of the solution. Having the right tools is essential. Mutual support also helps. That's exactly what you'll find when you join the Tourism Network

I cried. You don't have to.
It was a dark, rainy evening. I cried as I walked home from work. I had my dream tourism job, but felt frustrated & helpless, not knowing where to turn to learn more & get help.
This was 30 years ago.
I did courses, read books & through plenty of trial & error I built my tourism marketing knowledge. I worked for small & large businesses, famous attractions, hotel chains, tour operators & many small accommodation businesses & start ups.
Since then I've helped over 7500 tourism businesses, sharing my practical knowhow to make their businesses better.
I’ve never forgotten how it felt to not know where to turn. I understand the sense of isolation you sometimes feel, the frustration of not knowing where to find solutions to business problems. I've also seen all the positive things that happen when people share ideas, collaborate & support each other. That's why I created the Tourism Network.
I hope you'll join us.
