Do you need to market your tourist service to the English-speaking community?
You need to win over these potential clients with a website and advertising material that is clear and catchy.
I´ve always been passionate about learning about other cultures. After travelling through the USA, Turkey and Russia, I landed a job with a leading tour operator in England. I sold package tours for customers who wanted unique experiences, such as hiking in the Picos de Europa or the Canary Islands in Spain, diving in the Red Sea, safaris in Africa, etc.
The importance of tourism here in Spain
Apart from my personal interest in this industry, it must be stressed that tourism creates over 11% of Gross Domestic Product in Spain, where I live and around 2 million jobs.
From an international perspective, Europeans are those which visit Spain the most. According to data from the INE (Spanish National Statistics Agency), in 2016, those countries ranking at the top for international tourism in Spain came from The United Kingdom, Ireland, France, Germany, The USA, Portugal, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and Russia.
In order to best cater for these visitors, companies in the tourism industry must provide a linguistic service adapted to different nationalities , according to the part of Spain they are located in.
For example, for companies located close to the Pyrenees, information should be offered in French, in the west of Spain, it is advisable to have advertising material in Portuguese, and on the Mediterranean coast, there should be publicity in English, German and Russian.
