Questions & Answers:
Question: What's the difference between scotlandland.org.uk and visitscotland.com?
Answer: We don't promote every tourism business in Scotland so you don't feature on a page with 200 other local businesses. Also, we don't believe that we know best. We try to listen.
Question: Do you only deal with accommodation businesses?
No. We deal with any tourism businesses and in fact it is often the esoteric and unexpected that do best as visitors often don't know that those businesses even exist.
Question: Do we have to follow your format?
Answer: No way. If you have a great idea for marketing and promoting yourself we are all ears to hear. The fact is, your success is our success.
Question: How much will it cost?
Answer: Less than £10 per month (or 1.1 pence per hour)
Question: What is the minimum term?
We run our advertising for 12 month periods, We have found that the cost of set up over a shorter period is not really worth it. However, we will give you 30 days test advertising so you see we can deliver! Call us to persuade us.
Question: How much commission must I pay?
Answer: NONE (except where we have a separate commission agreement with you for group bookings)
Question: Can I make changes?
Answer: Yes (um, within reason) But if you realise that something will work better, let's give it a try.
Question: Do I have to reduce my prices to get the best out of this?
Answer: No, we are not VisitScotland. We believe that marketing is about value so let's help prospective visitors appreciate what they are going to get and they won't demand cheap deals.
