Our visitors come to our website when they are planning trips to Malaysia. And local and foreign residents search our site for holiday ideas every week.
If you don't realize the power of the Web to target online markets, then you're spending a lot of money on one-off media advertising.
If you compare the value of advertising on Nature Escapes with offline strategies like magazines, newspapers and brochures, the differences are very real for your business costs.
The Web works 24/7 and all year round.
That means your business is accessible to anyone searching for information on nature tours and tourism in Malaysia. Printed material has a much shorter advertising life.
Visitors using the Web are primed to jump on the best tour package available and get excited about finding a new rainforest adventure or tropical resort.
In reality, print media rarely reaches the customer at the right buying moment and becomes a distraction more than an attraction.
How Can Our Popularity Help Your Nature Business?
Nature Escapes provides valuable nature-tourism information first and foremost. That's the reason for its appeal.
The website "sells" outdoor adventure and fun, nature outings with your kids, natural alternatives to crowded urban malls and ways to connect with the natural beauty of Malaysia.
In fact, I have to remind people that Nature Escapes does not arrange package tours or sell holidays like a travel agent.
For those interested in statistics, here are the numbers:
- The website averages over 400 to 600 unique visitors per day.
- The total number of visits to the website exceeds 20,000 per month.
- The Natural Selections newsletter goes out to over 400 subscribers each month.
- Visitors arrive from all over the world, including Malaysia, Singapore, Germany, Philippines, Thailand, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and the United States.
The key to Nature Escapes popularity is the passion that goes into every destination.
Our goal is to get every local or foreign tourist to explore the rainforest and find the experience rewarding.
How Does Advertising Turn Into Profits for Your Business?
Let me give you an example of how one smart boutique resort owner made a good business decision to reach out to Nature Escapes.
The Dusun is a little 12 acre getaway next to a forest in Negri Sembilan, just an hour from Kuala Lumpur, with a few Malay traditional houses set in quiet natural splendour. Guests also enjoy hikes with Temuan jungle guides and treks to rainforest waterfalls.
A great place for weekend visitors escaping Kuala Lumpur, the Dusun owners wanted to find a way to increase business during the less busy weekdays. So we started the KL Weekend Getaways section on our website to provide alternative nature choices for our visitors.
With excellent click-through rates as high as 25%, our visitors decided the Dusun was a perfect destination to try out.
"The great benefit we get is to reach international travelers, most of whom stay several days and usually on weekdays. We probably get several bookings per month through your site. So this boosts our occupancy." -- Helen, Owner of the Dusun
Now let's do the business math. The Dusun charges from RM 300 to RM 800 (depending on chalet) for a single night's stay. So even a two-night stay per visit generates sizable revenue for the year.
How will your business benefit from advertising on Nature Escapes for less than RM 15 per day?
- Our visitors are ready-to-go and actively seeking nature destination alternatives.
- Nature Escapes gets the attention of foreign travelers and local holiday goers.
- You can promote special offers and reach more customers with our newsletter.
Which Visitors' Requests Can Your Business Fulfill?
After visitors find and review the destinations on Nature Escapes, they are ready to get out of Kuala Lumpur and get into the jungle.
Every week mothers, business travelers, backpackers and school teachers request where to go camping are kayaking, where to take students outdoors, how to see rainforest animals, or what kind of nature programs are available during breaks.
Got a Nature Getaway Business?
We are seeking to promote good nature tourism experiences in these categories for our visitors.
- Malaysia beaches
- Malaysia islands
- Malaysia resorts
- Diving Malaysia
- Malaysia tours
- Malaysia homestay
- Malaysia birdwatching
- Jungle trekking
- Caving-Rock climbing
- Whitewater rafting-kayaking
- Suggest Others?
Normally, I try my best to steer them to a travel agent, an eco-resort, a nature guide or anyone who might satisfy their desire to explore Malaysia's wild habitats to observe nature in the raw.
Now, I want to send them to you. Is your business a solution to fulfill these requests from ready-to-go customers?
Here are a few typical samples:
"We will be in KL for 5 days. Could you suggest some trips to see jungle and wildlife? I am not sure we are equipped or prepared for the Taman Negara 3 day trip." -- Richard, United States
"I am currently researching for a holiday camp for kids. I came across your website and was wondering if you cater for large amounts of people, about 100 kids. The camp should last for 3 days."
-- Thia, Malaysia
"I am running a company that helps European tourists to design their holidays in Malaysia. I am in need of knowledgeable nature guide for nearby excursions .. would you be able to help me out?"
-- Julie, France
"Would like a quote for white water rafting at Sungai Kampar for 10 people." -- Sherlin, Malaysia
"I have two days off after business in KL and would like to get outdoors. Preferably kayak (river or sea) but also anything else you may have."
-- Runar, Norway
As you can see, these visitors are finding Nature Escapes first.
And they want to enjoy the outdoors. They want to employ professional, nature-tourism companies and guides during their holidays.
