    Visitr tourist info added to riding school directory | Monday, December 18, 2017
    Posted by chrishaycockNo Comments

    We regularly market Visitr to hotels and guesthouses across the UK, but these clients aren’t the only ones that can benefit from adding a virtual tourist board to their websites.

    Visitr has now been added to one of the best known horse riding directories in the UK – www.riding-schools.com, who wanted their visitors to benefit from having comprehensive destination marketing content on their website. Visitr is a perfect complement to their directory of riding schools, enabling website visitors to find out more about the area surrounding each establishment, including leisure & shopping facilities, weather, tourist information and travel resources.

    To see it in action, just visit an example page at http://www.riding-schools.com/c/berkshire/newbury/holtwood-stables/ and click on ‘Local Area’.

    If you have a hyperlocal website but you’re not in the hospitality industry, we’re happy to help you to embed a tourist information guide into your website. Just follow the steps to sign up today and you can get started in no time.
