under the stars, at one with nature, far from the bright lights and endless distractions of urban living.
A hugely popular holiday choice, it is estimated that by 2020, one billion campsite nights will be booked worldwide. With a bewildering choice of sites to pick from, for many avid camping lovers, finding the right campsite to book is far from an easy task.
A Site For Sore Eyes
When it comes to researching hotels, there are an endless amount of websites out there offering to help us make the right choice. If only there was such a website dedicated to campsites.....sigh!
Lucky for us, our featured guest this week on Kickstart Your Business Finán O'Donoghue has created Campsited.com which currently covers over 1,300 sites in Ireland and the UK. A camping enthusiast himself, Finán started the business to cater for the thousands of families, like his own, that wanted to book the perfect camping holiday without spending hours trawling the internet to find it.
Pitch It And They Will Come
We were delighted to hear that Finán is planning to introduce a 'Campsite of the Week' feature on the site which will bring that all important social interaction which fuels a business like Campsited.com that is built on relationship. Already he has built a strong relationship with campsite owners here in Ireland and now is looking to build relationships with his fellow campers.
A Camping We Will GoWhat do you suggest Finán might do to build on those all important relationships through the website?
Listen back to Finán on Kickstart Your Business and let us know what you think.
