The power of just ONE user review for travel companies NB: This is a guest article by Anthony Rawlins, CEO of Digital Visitor, a social media and marketing agency for travel and tourism organisations. Forget the controversies for a moment, there is no doubt that online reviews provide significant benefits for organisations in any industry. Earlier this year we wrote an article highlighting the power of online reviews – however in this article, we aim to strip it right back to look at the power that simply ONE review can have… In short: ONE review = ONE organic visitor per month Our in-house research has found that for each review added to our clients’ website, they receive one additional organic visitor. Let’s look into this in more detail… We all know how much search engines love new content and the core aim for any online marketer is to make them happy because it will improve your search rankings (and therefore your organic traffic).

Blog Posts - Glimpse - Your Stories From Abroad Photo: Tonykrinfo AT THE END OF A RUTTED RED-DIRT ROAD, which snakes along intensely green, cultivated hillsides past makeshift houses and produce stands piled high with plantains, sits the high hill where one of the worst acts during Rwanda’s genocide was committed. From Murambi there is a sweeping view of Rwanda’s southern countryside. Purple is the color of genocide commemoration. Our bus pulled up in front of an enormous purple flag hanging from the exterior wall of the main building. A young guide, sporting a bright red Rwanda Development Board polo shirt, welcomed our group and gave us a scripted yet impassioned briefing of what went on here, and what we were about to encounter. Murambi is one of the numerous memorials to the Rwandan genocide of 1994, during which nearly one million Rwandan Tutsis were systematically slaughtered over a period of 100 days in an initiative perpetrated by the Hutu-led government. The guide motioned us toward the classrooms. “I love to read.

Cheqqer sites axed by TUI, reviews to stay on tour operator brands TUI Travel has closed its two Cheqqer user generated content websites after less than two years, although the two million reviews will remain on existing sister operator sites. The two sites, targeting travellers in the Netherlands and Spain, were closed yesterday following a “business review” by TUI. First opened in September 2009 in Holland, Cheqqer then launched in Spain in June 2010 and was expected to see a wider European roll-out over time. TUI says all of the two million reviews added to Cheqqer in the intervening period have been integrated into a single database and can be used across any of its raft of websites, as well as with the operator’s website that originally had the customer. “The vast majority of the reviews by far are ‘trusted’ reviews which have been gathered through the ECRM ‘welcome home’ email programme from our customers,” says its managing director Sandra Leonhard.
