These days the internet is the number one resource for people looking for holiday cottage accommodation. In fact, the majority of people we asked wouldn’t consider looking anywhere else but the internet.
If you haven’t already, it’s definitely worth investing a few hundred pounds in getting a nice website for your cottage. Make sure it has a clean and simple design and is easy for people to use. Once you have a website, you’ll need to get people to find it. A great way to do this is with an advert on the iknow accommodation directory. Holiday cottage adverts on iknow are seen by millions of visitors each year, who can then click through to your website, call or email you for more information or book online to stay at your cottage.
And if you don’t have a website of your own, you’ll have no problem advertising your cottage online with an advert on the iknow website. You don’t even need to use a computer if you don’t want to, you can just phone us and we’ll make your advert exactly how you like it. Then we’ll update it as often as you like, for free.Free Holiday Cottage Advertising

If you advertise your cottage in a newspaper or magazine, you only get a few lines to tell people why they should stay in your property. Your advert on iknow is different because you have plenty of space to make your cottage stand out from the others. So be sure to make the most of this by including all the best features of your holiday cottage. Our team of expert copywriters will be happy to write your advert for you for free, but make sure that you tell us about your Unique Selling Points.
Here are the key things you need to do to be successful when advertising your cottage:
With any cottage marketing plan, it’s important to know that what you’re doing is worth it. Yes you could buy an advertisement in the Yellow Pages or a magazine, but how will you know that people have seen it? How will you know that the advert has made you more in profit than what you have spent on it?
With an advert on iknow, you have access to a control panel that tells you exactly how many people looked at your advert and when. Not only that, we tell you exactly how many people phoned you, how many emailed you, how many viewed your website and how many booked online. You can access this data whenever you want, then with a bit of maths you will know exactly how much profit your advert has made you. The free trial option means that you can work all this out before you hand over a penny to us.
