The Firefly the Travel Guy website is currently under development

Tourism marketing and consulting

Let our team assist your establishment to position itself in the inside lane for an advantage over your competition. We’ll advise you on practical aspects to make your guests’ experience better and boost your staff’s customer service. A key aspect of our service is to expand your marketing reach through various channels. This includes optimum online and media exposure, connecting with tour operators and marketing associations, getting included in marketing workshops, media and educational trips, establish relationships with like minded establishments and creating packages to enhance your product’s offering.


Social media and digital marketing

Social media marketing is a powerful way for businesses of all sizes to create awareness around their product as well as to reach prospective and existing customers. Allow us to manage your social media pages, drive engagement and put your brand out there to be discovered.  Let us create unique content especially for you and engage with your audience. We also offer photographic, graphic design, and content writing services to enhance the content on your social media, website, and blog.

If it’s just online content you would like, our representatives can visit your establishment and write about their experience firsthand on the Firefly the Travel Guy blog from where it also gets shared on various other online platforms. You can also add the content to your website and social media platforms.


Destination and Product Promotion

Over a period of nearly 15 years, the Firefly blog has become the premier online reference guide for destinations and attractions in the Eastern Cape and beyond. With 23 years of tourism and destination marketing experience, involvement with various destination marketing associations, and a wide network, we are ideally equipped to assist marketing associations and individual products to promote their destination successfully. This ties in perfectly with our own generic destination promotion, suggested itineraries, and very popular monthly Travel Info Newsletter. Rather than having individual lines in the water, chum the water to attract more fish.
