What Premier Cottages can do for you…..
Premier Cottages has one of the largest databases of any self-catering business, with over a 150,000 customer records. This is always expanding from our annual member data collection and various other campaigns run through the year.
We send our brochure to all guests who have stayed with a member in the last 2 years. All customers are marketed to in our email campaigns and with the progression of our data we can target people based on preferences and demographic.
We have an ongoing SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) programme to ensure our website has high organic ranking on Google, and also invest in digital marketing platforms such as PPC (Pay Per Click).
Premier has a dedicated PR department which creates plenty of opportunities to gain media coverage for members.
Premier has full foreign language websites in German, French and Dutch, giving us direct access to the European markets
