1. Visit Knysna Website / Stakeholders Login – from the Stakeholders Engagement
On Tuesday morning, we hosted a stakeholders engagement to a small (unfortunately) yet enthusiastic group of local product owners.  Nicci Rousseau-Schmidt of Knysna PR, as project manager for the mobile-first website for Visit Knysna, presented on the material that is included in this extensive, content- and image-dense site.  We encourage everyone to sift through the site and utilise the content therein when promoting your product, complimenting it by promoting the destination at large – and its many offerings:  

Simon Thomas, with on-site support from Sharon Laughton, both of S2 Web Solutions, then directed the product owners in a step-by-step process through the ‘product login and registration process’ so you can ensure your content is up-to-date and the search tags are relevant for your product in order to garner the best benefits from the site’s searches.  Our site then directs people directly to your site for further details (e.g. pricing, availability, etc).   Please be sure to register so you can update your product details.  In this section, you can also upload your specials, events, and all happenings within the greater Knysna area.
