Working in partnership with the Manchester Museums Consortium and Marketing Manchester and funded by the Northwest Regional Development Agency (remember them?!), we developed the first iteration of what became CreativeTourist.com
We started off promoting the cultural offer in Manchester and over the years we have expanded to include food and drink, tours and excursions, family friendly events and destination guides.
We have a team of paid specialist editors and we now cover events, activities and places across the North of England.
From a small-scale funded cultural blog in its early days, to a fully functioning and effective marketing channel with a loyal audience, CreativeTourist.com now delivers demonstrable and measurable return on investment through affordable paid campaigns.
When Covid-19 caused the closure of the cultural sector, no clients wanted to book campaigns and no audiences were looking for what's on content. So we quickly took advantage of Google's standards for data mark up, or schemas, to make changes to our site to include online or virtual event listings.
We have built a dedicated following of culturally motivated and digitally switched on experience seekers with a well above average click-through rate to partner websites.
We deliver integrated marketing campaigns for clients across our website, social media channels and weekly e-newsletters.
