WE WORK HARD FOR YOUR MONEY
The industry figures that appear at the foot of this page will have been affected by the disruption of lockdown and COVID-19 during 2020, 2021 and early 2022. We will publish new data as it becomes available. As we begin to return to business normality we will see many changes in the hospitality landscape. New owners and new operators of hotels, restaurants and pubs represent new opportunities for suppliers. This site has consistently gained in audience numbers throughout the past 18 months, which shows that there is still a huge appetite for business growth and development. Now is the time to be seen.
Through this site you can influence some of the most senior decision makers in hospitality.
“You can promote your company’s products for as little as £35 per month, or less in the Suppliers or Designers section. And for just £15 per week you can place your recruitment advert and attract some of the best and most skilled people in the industry. We believe that these are the most competitive rates in the market”
This website re-launched early this year in its new format. Designed originally to support the printed version of GS Magazine the website first appeared in 2003. This is significant purely because its age has helped it to establish a very strong Domain Authority (DA) of 84% and Page Authority (PA) of 55% which is ‘most desirable to advertisers’ and a good find rate via the main search engines like Google, Bing, Yahoo and Ask.com. In fact, we can now be found on Page One using any of 70 target keywords and phrases, and we are rapidly getting to the top using another 10 Key Search Words.
We continue to invest in improving our rankings with the simple aim of making the site the number one hospitality design website in the UK – and we’re getting there.
We continue to target a readership of owners, investors, operators and managers of hotels, restaurants, pubs and bars through content, newsletters & promotions.
We continue to engage with architects and the design community, most of whom we know through contact with the magazine.
We continue to keep abreast of news and events within the hospitality industry – at home and abroad – to bring our readers up to date and inspired by stories, trends, features, new products and job posts.
Month on month our visitor numbers are growing through organic searches, direct and social media interaction. The average monthly growth rate is 16%.
