Plans for the £40 million-plus scheme have now been approved
TTDIC, a new Tourist & Attraction website and Business Advertising Directory, has recently gone live after being a few months in the making.
The business advertising directory franchise taken on by Cardiff, Newport and Caerphilly based digital marketing agency MA Consultancy, come about after a chance meeting earlier this year with Things To Do In Ltd Franchisor Paul Nash, at the London Business Show.
Paul Nash, a former doorman, American limo entrepreneur and Zoo Keeper, started the business in Clacton, Essex after find out that most of his zoo visitors had found out about his business by searching “Things To Do In Clacton”, on the internet.
After finding out for himself what the customers were finding, when using the search phrase, Paul discovered that besides, trip advisor and another site, there was no Things To Do In Clacton site, so a business was born.
After getting 250 businesses on the site in Clacton and expanding throughout Essex, Paul decided to franchise the business.
There are now over 25 “Things To Do In” websites live with many of these taken by franchisees and many more still available including many available in the lucrative Greater London area.
There are plans for the “Things To Do In” Business Advertising Directory websites to be in every town and city in the country, as well as every town and city in Wales as soon as possible after the flag ship Things To Do In Cardiff site has been launched.
The secret behind the success of the website is it’s strong keyword and the SEO services that go on in the background which means that for just £30 per month and a small £50 set up fee, they can get your business on to page 1 of google, which will drive traffic to your business and your website.
Franchises are £9,995 and the advertising starts from £30 per month for a micro-site and £50 set up fee, or from just £25 for a banner ad.
