The Tourism Digital Assistance Program can help you enhance your online presence and connect with potential customers.
We know travellers are increasingly researching and booking their vacations online. Work with a digital consultant through the Tourism Digital Assistance Program to increase your visibility online and provide the services customers expect, like online booking.
Tourism Nova Scotia, in partnership with Digital Nova Scotia, will provide eligible tourism businesses with the services of qualified digital consultants to enhance or develop effective digital marketing and e-commerce tools. The program will cover the full cost of consultant services (up to a maximum of $5,000).
Digital Nova Scotia will pair selected businesses with consultants who have expertise in the tactics they require such as website creation, search engine optimization, content creation, digital marketing strategy, social media strategy, online booking systems, and e-commerce tools.
Priority will be given to small and medium sized tourism businesses whose primary focus is attracting and servicing visitors. Businesses that participated in the program in 2020 are welcome to apply again.
