Digital marketing is the most powerful advertising tool Virgin Islands businesses have. That’s because the tourism audience is a global one.
Visitors to the Virgin Islands take two vacations. Tourists bookmark websites, download travel apps, and pin their dream trip on Pinterest long before they set foot on an airplane.
They decide what restaurants they will try, they read reviews, they search for authentic cultural experiences; in short, they have already decided what they’re going to do and where they’re going to go before they arrive. The second vacation happens when they get here.

You are giving your customers to your competitors if you are invisible to travelers when they are planning their vacations or when they are sharing recommendations with friends. When they surf the web, they need to find you!
The problem, it takes time to build a website and learn the intricacies social media marketing, content creations and search engine optimization.
