How we will market your property

Our goal is to bring you bookings - lots of bookings

We can help maximise booking rates for your property with our extensive and targeted marketing programme:
 

Our Websites

Our website is the most important tool we have to promote Cornish Horizons and our wonderful selection of properties. Our website is ‘responsive’ which means it’s appearance changes to best fit the device on which it is being viewed. We invest in ‘pay per click’ advertising to ensure that our position on Google is good and we work hard to ensure that we are always adding relevant information to our site, which creates a good user experience and also improves our ‘organic’ search engine performance. We also market all our properties on our group website, www.Originalcottages.co.uk.

Our social media audience is always growing as we actively seek to talk to our customers on a personal level to both build awareness of our brand and strengthen relationship we have with our customers.

Affiliate Websites

In addition to our own websites, we pay to list your properties on 20+ affiliate websites, both in the UK and elsewhere in the EU, casting the net further still.

These include: Airbnb, Booking.com, Snaptrip, Holiday Lettings and HomeAway.

Campaigns & Social Media

We regularly communicate with our customers with personalised, targeted emailing, featuring properties, events and special offers. In addition to this with our online blog, we give customers insider news and tips to make the most of the Lake District.

Our Brochure & Other Printed Media

Taking advantage of the significant footfall we have passing our offices, we produce a full colour brochure with high quality imagery of our beautiful properties. This can also be requested online.

We also advertise and showcase properties locally and nationally, from the Cornwall Life magazine to bus stops, to name just a few!

Advertising & PR

We work closely with our PR agent who keeps us informed of any national and local opportunities for press coverage. We promote our cottages through a variety of targeted advertising in the local and national newspapers, magazines, visitor publications etc. We also work closely with local tourism agencies and a number of oversea affiliates.

We Go To Shows

We attend local, county and national shows, so people can meet us and find out about our properties. We have high quality show displays and we take our magazines and other literature with us, together with great branded giveaways.
