It has long been a wish by the Okhahlamba Drakensberg Community Tourism Organisation Committee to create a website for our Members so that we can give you something back for your Membership fees.
For your Membership fee you will see you will get your Logo, Name, Tel, Fax, E-mail and a link to your website. Some of you pay as little as R 175 so I truly think this is value for money. We do have the condition that to have a listing on this web-site you must be a Paid-up member of the ODCTO. This will be monitored strictly so anyone not a paid up member by Oct 31st of 2011 will unfortunately be temporarily removed until such time they become a member. Unfortunately this may incur extra web-master costs.
- R 175 for a Tourism Associated Business (e.g. All Out Adventures)
- R 175 for Accommodation places with less than 20 beds. (Please note here beds include, camping and Caravan sites.)
- R 275 for Accommodation places with more than 20 beds.
Sponsored Logos etc:
The proceeds for the sponsored links are going towards buying adwords per month on Google.
- Would like more immediate and extra exposure on selected pages their establishment is on.
- This will also allow the ODCTO to earn extra income which it is intended to be used for, extra marketing and to enable us to pay for this website to be optimized and hopefully be well positioned on the search engines.
- Certain people have already expressed their willingness to participate in these sponsored positions. However you will be able to see photos on the right hand side of the web-site pages. Each right hand side has space for 4 logos which link directly to your web-site. Should there only be 2 Logos visible this means 2 spaces are still available.
- Should you wish to participate in this please contact Bernice on 036 448 1328 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org It will be done on a strictly first come first basis and as you will appreciate payment before work is done.
- If you want to be on a sponsored link on the homepage these are now various different rates. Should you require any other sponsored section it is R 350 per advert which lasts a year. The cost is per sponsored Logo/section. That is, should you wish to be on an accommodation sponsored section eg Bed and Breakfast. It will cost R350. Then if you wish to also feature on the sponsored section of the restaurant page, therefore it would be an additional R350. If in doubt please contact Bernice on 036 448 1328.
I do believe that we are now moving in an exciting and the right direction where the Central and Northern Drakensberg area of Okhahlamba Local Municipality can begin to market themselves aggressively.
The Okhahlamba Drakensberg Tourism Community Organisation Committee thank all the Accommodation Establishments and Tourism Associated Businesses for supporting us over the years, as it is their loyalty that has allowed us to do what we are now doing. I would also like to thank those people who have supplied material and photos to me for the development of this web-site. Your willingness to support has encouraged me tremendously.
I would also like to encourage Accommodation Establishments and Tourism Associated Businesses to join and become Members.
Remember by belonging to the Okhahlamba Drakensberg Tourism Community Organisation you not only have a ‘Drakensberg Holidays’ listing but also a ‘Certificate of Membership’ which you can send to KZN Tourism for membership which is mandatory for participation in the Tourism Industry.
