SEABROOK ISLAND, S.C., June 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Seabrook Island, South Carolina, is one of Charleston County's most historically significant areas. The private community combines low country charm with southern elegance to create unforgettable travel experiences. Now the popular South Carolina tourism destination is even more accessible through the launch of a new interactive web portal. The all new SeabrookIsland.com takes everything visitors love about Seabrook Island and showcases it in a way that easy to navigate and explore.
"SeabrookIsland.com was built from the ground up, after careful research focused in the latest tech developments and trends in the travel and tourism industry," said Robert Hart, project director. "By incorporating a fully responsive design with engaging videos and informative content, we can bring Seabrook Island into the twenty-first century and give it the web presence it deserves."
A main goal of the site was to provide a resource for Seabrook Island residents and visitors where they can easily find the information they seek, all in one place.
Content is streamlined in a user-centric and easy to navigate responsive interface. From the homepage, users can quickly access popular features such as vacation rentals, up-to-date news, dining and entertainment options and an event calendar. Taking a data-driven approach, the most commonly requested content has been displayed prominently on the site.
The tourism industry relies heavily on digital traffic and according to research from HeBS Digital, more than 40% of online traffic related to travel queries comes from mobile devices. By offering a fully responsive, mobile integrated site, SeabrookIsland.com can compete with other top ranked travel websites around the region. The viewing experience is optimized for computers, smartphones and tablets.
SeabrookIsland.com, which is expected to serve more than 500,000 unique visitors this year, gives travel planners a resource for making Seabrook Island vacation plans, booking vacation rentals or experiencing the beauty and charm of the low country.
More than 100,000 jobs are directly supported by the South Carolina tourism industry in the state each year. Approximately $1.6 billion in tax revenue was generated by domestic traveler spending in the area.
"As one of America's most popular tourist destinations, the low country is rich in history and culture," said Hart. "But without the web presence required to engage and inform visitors, the region will remain a best-kept secret."
The all-new SeabrookIsland.com seeks to change that, by serving as a useful resource and travel planning tool that can help increase the positive impact of tourism and economic development in South Carolina
