Website Hosting

st-websitehostingNow is the time to take your Web site design seriously attract visitors with an attractive, functional online presence. Accept online payments for tour packages, collect data for opt-in e-mail marketing, showcase points of interest with a photo or film gallery, and turn your tourism bureau portfolio site into an interactive showcase for your destination, designed to increase your online traffic and offline revenue. For the small bed and breakfast seeking a wider reach to the county CVB seeking to maintain theirs, Simple Tourism, a division of CINIVA Systems, has the tools you need to succeed on the Internet.

Just as no two businesses are alike, Simple Tourism recognizes the truth that no single Web site design package will satisfy the needs and wants of every travel industry client. This is why we offer flexible design and hosting plans. Prospective clients may choose from set priced bundles or select from a detailed menu of individual services to create the perfect online presence and most user-friendly functionality we have to offer.

We do not quote a set price for design and hosting. Due to the nature of business diversity, our prices will fluctuate depending upon the scope of your business, your budget, and your online needs. Not every client will need FLASH animation or an online reservations system, and as we prepare a custom proposal for your site we will be honest in our recommendations. We won’t sell you on anything we believe you don’t need. Whatever your site requires, we will prepare a reasonable estimate conducive to your budget.

Listed below are what we call the essential building blocks of Web site design, the core elements of your project. When you contact us for your free consultation, we will explain each in detail and price accordingly. Contact us today or call 757.499.1990 to learn more.

Domain/Brand Name

Your Web site address is your business/destination’s online brand, it is one of the most important elements of any Web site because it is what customers use to find you. Your URL should be easy to remember, easy to spell, and synonymous with your business. If you already own a URL, we will attach it to a new website. If not, we will consult with you over a proper URL, then register and manage it for you. Our website hosting support system also allows you to have multiple domain names pointing to the same website, so if you wish to be recognized under different brands we can make that happen.

Content and Structure

In terms of search, content drives high visibility, and content keeps visitors on the site. When you meet with Simple Tourism, we’ll discuss your target audience and/or market and work an effective design template and content layout around meeting your website goals. Simple Tourism applies proven site concepts, text styles, and content that maximize the usability, visual appeal, and search engine friendliness of your Web pages. With our team of professional graphics designers and copywriters, we can craft a wealth of material guaranteed to turn first-time visitors into regular tourist.

Graphic Design

Forget about cookie-cutter, template database design! Simple Tourism employs the best graphic designers in Virginia for custom images and logos, lending your Web site a unique appearance. Existing logos can be integrated seamlessly into design to give your business a fresh look. User-friendly navigation menus and optional FLASH animation add to the enhancement of your online identity.

Functionality

Once it’s determined what information your site should convey, then we get down to the business of how the information should be executed. Simple Tourism will consult with you with regards to your site’s overall functionality, for you and your visitors. Do you need to collect personal data for opt-in advertising and communications? How about a podcast or video applications to enhance the selling quality of your hotel or destination? Maybe a blog or RSS feed to keep customers updated frequently on changes, specials, and news of interest? Whatever the goals for your business, we can suggest the proper tools for best distributing the information throughout the Internet.

Online Payment Transactions

Where applicable, Simple Tourism will consult with you about the best methods of online payment for your site. From customized carts for tour packages to online hotel reservations, our applications can allow you to accept secure credit card transactions with ease.

Content Management

We don’t expect every client to be Web savvy, but if you’re the take-charge kind of person who wants control of site management we can give it to you. The Simple Tourism/CINIVA content management system is easy to use, even for Internet novices. Our back-end functionality lets you create special user IDs and passwords for employees to update the site when needed. WYSIWYG editors and image libraries allow you to make changes without compromising the overall look and feel of your site. Of course, we’ll train you to use everything!

Database and Storage

If you have a large customer base, why not transfer your information to the Internet for easier access? Build customer mailing lists and determine changes in inventory based upon history. With a web-based database engine, you can store customer data, inventories, order histories, and other content online. We can create the right application for your site, and open up a whole new world of functional efficiency and marketing effectiveness.
