Discover Dartmouth are delighted to announce the launch of their new website www.discoverdartmouth.com. The recent increase in footfall shows that Dartmouth is again becoming a popular destination for UK holidays. Take an entry in Discover Dartmouth free of charge to take advantage of this popularity.
The new website has a fresher look and is more image led which we are hoping will help increase digital engagement with our visitors and showcase Dartmouth as a key destination to visit in South Devon. In line with the launch Discover Dartmouth is offering a free basic entry on the site for all Dartmouth businesses. To take up this offer contact them on [email protected]
It is also important to note that this new website has been developed in the WordPress environment. This will keep running costs to the minimum and allow Visit South Devon to maintain the site without the assistance of web development experts. This means their advertising rates can be kept at a competitive level.
