Visit Florida offers free marketing help

If you have a tourism-related business, listen up. Visit Florida wants to give your company free marketing.

The state's official tourism marketing organization is offering all Florida tourism businesses a free listing on its website, The website is where tourists go to research their vacation destinations and scout hotels, restaurants and shopping venues.

Due to the BP oil spill, Visit Florida initiated the free listings program to help the state's tourism industry.

If your business feeds off tourism here's what you need to do:

Go to and click the "Register Me Online" icon toward the bottom of the page. Once approved, your business listing will be posted on Visit Florida and will include a business description, one photo and a link to your website. Free business listings will remain on until June 30, 2011.

The cost for these Visit Florida listings typically range from $95 a year to $1,500 a year so take advantage of the opportunity now. Last month, the website attracted 719,070 visitors.

That's quite a market to reach for free.
