There’s no better way to promote your business to Bude’s visitors…
We’re an independent company with the sole aim of promoting Bude and ensuring visitors to Bude have a fantastic time and return! We are entirely self-funded and are not funded by Bude-Stratton Town Council or Cornwall Council – so we need the financial support of businesses within our catchment area to fulfil our goal!
As a Member of Bude Area Tourist Board, you will be promoted online, in the TIC, within our guide books and the TIC staff will actively promote your business. We’re entirely self funded, so we promote your business over non-member businesses. You’ll also have the opportunity to be involved with the Tourist Board, and perhaps be invited to join the Board of Directors – but that’s up to you!
on the VisitBude website
within the Bude Tourist Information Centre
within our printed Bude Guide booklets
during face-to-face / phone and digital enquiries
We’ll provide you with a fantastic level of promotion, and in return you’ll be paying a small membership fee. We would not be operational without the support of our member businesses.
Where else can you get this level of promotion for £150 per year?
How much would it cost to place a one-off advert in a local paper, which would probably not be seen by visitors and certainly wouldn’t be seen by prospective visitors?
If our promotion results in only 500 visitors arriving at your business, the equivalent cost is just 30p per person!
In addition to all of this, there will be ad hoc benefits and opportunities throughout the year.
The Bude catchment area…
Almost every visitor to Bude will travel by car for an hour to visit an attraction or activity. Well over half of them will travel by car for 90 minutes.
Therefore, we are happy to promote any business within 90 minutes of Bude.
Make the most of your membership! Tell us about your events (add them to our website events calendar and send us a poster to display on the window and in the TIC), tell us about any special offers you may be running and anything else we should know about to tell our visitors.
If you are a gold member, regularly send us images and text so we can post blog posts and shout about you on social media.
