Visit Barnsley is the tourism destination website for Barnsley, South Yorkshire. Rich in history and with an abundance of attractions and excellent shopping opportunities, visit-barnsley.com provides both Barnsley residents and tourists with details on events, places to stay and attractions within Barnsley.
In 2012 we were appointed by Barnsley Council to design and develop a website for Visit Barnsley, and a website for each of the Council owned and run attractions within Barnsley. In autumn 2014 we won a commission to commercialise the Visit Barnsley website, with a brief to make the website self-sufficient within 6 months. We created a new Community Interest Company – Visit Barnsley CIC – and have introduced a fee based membership model, advertising and an improved personal membership scheme – VIP. Our digital marketing team promotes the Visit Barnsley website via social media channels, gaining close to 4,000 Likes on Facebook and 1,000 plus followers on Twitter within the first two months.
