Newsletter – Issue 1

Welcome to the First Edition of the Discover South Africa Newsletter!  In this newsletter we will give a brief overview of what we’re about and how we will help you discoverSouth Africa.

Welcome to a new Experience
Discover South Africa is a comprehensive online Travel Directory assisting both the national and international traveller to organise a complete holiday in South Africa, your “go to” website!

The members and affiliates of Discover South Africa are highly experienced in the tourism and IT sector. The combined expertise is 30 years of tourism / marketing and 8 years in information technology.

We are extremely excited about the positive response of our SMS short code enquiry system!   In case you are not yet aware of this service, it’s as simple as SMS’ing a town name to 40988 and our SMS service will return details of 3 randomly selected establishments in the town requested.

Social Networking
Social networking is becoming a vital tool in business marketing.  We will keep you updated via our Facebook page of all competitions, special offers and latest news.

As you are well aware, Twitter is huge and it’s an easy tool for businesses to communicate to their clients/audience.  All new listings on the website will also appear on out Twitter.  Follow us on Twitter to keep yourself updated on what’s new in South Africa and on the Discover South Africa website.

All our new accommodation, tours and leisure listings are published on the RSS newsfeed which reaches a different market segment entirely.  This is added value for the Discover South Africa client as they get more exposure.
