A guide to the best walking experiences in Wales
A toolkit designed to help market your business using the pulling-power of the 870-mile long Wales Coast Path
A free, on-line resource which has been designed to help coastal businesses market their business by using the pulling power of the Wales Coast Path. It gives you access to a wide range of material and information in one place.
It aims to stimulate ideas and provides guidance on how businesses can give their new and existing customers’ an unforgettable Wales Coast Path experience.
If your business is on or near the Offas Dyke Path National Trail and Glyndŵrs National Trail, you can also download the National Trails in Wales business tool kit (PDF 4.67 KB). Based on the same idea as the ours, it gives businesses along these trails some great ideas to promote their businesses to a wider audience.
Download our Welcoming Walkers waymarker logo (jpeg, 1.2mb) for your website or your marketing literature to give your customers a warm Welsh welcome to the path. Our white dragon shell logo is on all of our path way-markers so your visitors should instantly recognise it from their travels.
It’s designed to make your guests aware of the great coastal walking opportunities here in Wales. Print off the poster and display it prominently around your premises. Download the poster as a pdf file
Update your customers about your business on the path with an e-newsletter. Here's an example of a completed e-newsletter (pdf) with lots of interesting ideas and news items which can appear alongside your latest offers. You can customise it to your business needs.
The template contents can be easily changed to promote other fantastic long distance walking routes in Wales. For example, see the newsletter template for Glyndŵr's Way National Trail in mid Wales.
All of our official pictures are on the Visit Wales image portal. Once you have registered for free, there are over 700 stunning images of the path and surroundings available to download. You can use them on your website, social media channels and newsletters for that professional touch.
Our YouTube channel has videos which show off the path at its’ best organised into our 7 marketing regions (like our website). Watch inspirational drone footage showing each region of the path at it’s best. There are fun and insightful interviews with a wide variety of people who love the path, from the Bluetits Chilled Swimmers video in Pembrokeshire to a video about a café owner on the path near Newport
You are welcome to use these for your website and social media channels.
We hope you will find our marketing tool kit useful with lots of easy tips and hints to help you promote your business on one of the few coastal footpaths in the world.
