August 3, 2017 Business News No Comments Email Email

Entrepreneurial siblings, Jodi Nelson and Kim Marsden have applied a decade of digital marketing experience to launch Local Tourism Network as an affordable and innovative online solution for Far North Queensland’s small businesses.

As directors of online travel agency, Travstar (established since 2000) and local event listing site, Cairns Events, the savvy duo has dedicated three years and an investment of $350,000 to create Local Tourism Network’s dynamic online platform using a membership based model.

Local Tourism Network’s creator and director, Jodi Nelson said the platform’s highly functional system and accessibility is what sets it apart.

“We have designed this platform predominantly for smaller tourism related organisations who struggle to find time for their web presence and online marketing.

“Taking advantage of our economies of scale we can create a user-friendly website, with its own identity and domain, that can interact with other sites and a suite of networking tools for business to business communication,” said Mr Nelson.

An added benefit of joining Local Tourism Network is immediate access to the company’s extensive database of almost 24,000 members as well as weekly deals, event listing options as well as interaction with and exposure on social media networking sites including Facebook.

Mr Nelson said with prices starting from $35 per month for a hosted website with no set-up fees or contracts, Local Tourism Network is perfectly suited to fledgling businesses and not-for-profits looking to boost their awareness and engagement with locals and visitors in Far North Queensland.
