Dear Visitor, if you're involved in the tourist industry then you are probably familiar with the following story: There were two neighbours. One of them filled his capacity with guests while the other hardly achieved full bookings for July and August! You're well aware of the fact that if you've built a house, hotel, or restaurant or are offering additional deals (e.g. excursions or sporting activities) you still won't get tourists and guests rushing to make bookings.
The key is investing in the quality of premises and holiday deals, development and maintenance of premises and marketing. In the business world, it's clear that in order to gain 200 kuna you must invest 100 kuna.
If we look at the problem objectively, we can see that formulating a holiday deal for any segment is difficult, especially in financial terms. How do then decide to invest and where to do it? What type of investment will return the greatest profit?
Fortunately, we're now experiencing favourable conditions for the development of tourism in Croatia. People are increasingly from all over the world discovering our country for the first time and coming back. Croatia is currently a hit. International agencies and television stations are competing to present Croatia as the better and more beautiful tourist destination with attractions such as Dubrovnik, Dalmatia, Istra and Plitvička jezera. Croatia is proclaimed as one of the most desirable countries in the world. The rich and famous visit Croatia and many people would like to be take part in the Adriatic summer magic and Mediterranean charm.
Even though Croatia is been advertised and has received many praises in recent years, there is still much to do in order to achieve high standards of quality. However, this is excellent news for tourist employees because a positive growth in Croatian tourism offers new areas for necessary development and at the same time reducing investment risk.
Recognising the best path for investment is a question of resourcefulness and adaptability, which includes adjusting to trends, to the habits of the guests, to ecological standards, tax regimes and other parameters influencing your business. The greatest success is achieved by those who adapt the quickest with the ability to forecast trends.
Internet and other communication systems offering direct and easy access to information (GSM, GPRS, UMTS) are part of the modern trend with the quickest growth. Investing in internet advertising and promotion is your ticket to the modern information system including following the trends greatly influencing the tourist industry. With good reason, you can consider investing in a similar manner (to a larger or smaller extent, at one or numerous web sites) and ask yourself the following question:
Investing in internet promotion is a lot better than utilising classical advertising methods
(TV, newspapers, radio). Good quality promotion being an important component in
marketing has become accessible to smaller companies, while large multinational companies
also have their share of interest in the internet. Investment in advertising at histrica.com is
negligible in investment terms when compared to the total investment necessary in
developing and maintaining tourist deals. Investment entails presenting and maintaining a
presence at a web site known in modern media as the internet. Your business achieves
added stability: a certain number of requests and visitors on whom you can count since
we're faced with a continual and stable growth of interest (number of visitors) searching
for various information and holiday deals such as accommodation, camps, hotels,
restaurants, households involved in agritourism, pictures, data, and statistics, just to name
a few. Decide for yourself what you consider the secure limit to be and whether it meets
your needs. However, once you've made your decision, experience has shown that the
scale increases or remains at the same level.
The benefits of advertising at histrica.com are:
The advertising package you choose does not offer a recipe and solution based on a magic-wand principle, where you invest a minimum and in return make a small fortune. It's possible but it's not the usual rule. The Miracolina solution for the tourist industry offers real economic gains in terms of your return on investment. Accomplishing this task is our goal, vision and mission. If you're now ready to begin advertising, fill out the questionnaire or contact us directly by phone.
