Why work with us?

Tourism Marketing SA was established by Johannes in 2008. As a guest house owner himself, in his first years operating the guest house, he had learnt the hard way what works and what doesn´t. Frustrated with the lack of honest advice, he set out to provide exactly that. Since than, Tourism Marketing SA constantly evolved around changing traveler markets, marketing best practices and ever-changing Google algorithms.

What hasn´t changed are our core principles and values. We are passionate about the hospitality industry and online marketing and committed to providing friendly service, honest advice and fairly priced products and services that help independent establishments, like B&B´s, guest houses, lodges, boutique hotels and providers of self catering accommodation to create unique travel experiences, build brand awareness and to attract more direct bookings, repeat and referral business. Our advice results from our experience working with hundreds of establishments.

We see a real opportunity for independent establishments to create a competitive advantage by going back to their roots again and providing true hospitality. We support responsible tourism and dream of a world where both hosts and travellers are aware of the impact of their decisions on stakeholders, communities and the environment.  

The Team that makes it all happen

We are a small team, working closely together, developing a deep knowledge of each of our clients. At Tourism Marketing SA, you don't work with "Account Executives" and "Sales Managers", you are in touch with the people that make it all happen. While we don't reside in "Google" style offices (there is lots of free coffee though for us and our clients), we love our jobs, are passionate about our client's success and proud of the fact that our very first client is still with us after all these years.
