"By writing compelling and engaging tour descriptions, you will be able to increase your bookings in no time...Target a specific persona before you begin writing. For example, if you are a company that provides kayak tours to experienced adventurers, then develop a persona that addresses your target audience. It might be an open-minded person who has the necessary skills to kayak and enjoys the thrill of a new experience. You need to think about who will be most likely to book your tours, and write your tour descriptions for a persona that identifies with that audience...Choose a tone of voice, and remain consistent throughout your website. Some tour operators want to maintain a corporate presence, and therefore should adopt a professional tone of voice. A smaller, local business might be more interested in connecting with their customers on a personal level. They may choose to use a tone of voice that is lighthearted with a dash of humor...Make your tour descriptions easy to read. Avoid long, wordy sentences...Make every word count, and choose powerful action verbs in order to describe the experience. Instead of writing a paragraph about each tour that you offer, create several bullet points. Bullet points are easier to scan through, and will allow you to keep your reader’s attention...Be specific and persuasive in the description. Be sure to outline the benefits of booking with your company. If your business focuses on winery tours in the local wine-growing region, then be sure to explain what each unique offering is about. Avoid vague descriptions such as 'Our day-long wine tour takes you to several wineries in the area.' Instead, provide additional details and throw in the benefits of booking this tour: 'Our 8-hour wine tour takes you to 5 different local wineries, where you will sample delectable wines and snack on delicious cheese.'...Optimize your content with relevant keywords, but do so in a natural way...If you can place your keywords naturally in the copy, that will quickly optimize your site. However, you also can add keywords into subheadings and image file names in order to increase your rankings in the search results."
