Grow Your Local Businesses with a Small Town, Tourism-Focused Website

Your chamber or town website is for your members.
A tourism website brings in tourists - and their money.

You probably already have a chamber or town website.

That’s where residents can:

  • Pay their bills. 
  • See the next ribbon cutting.
  • Know who’s on the board. 

But what about your visitors? 

If Jack & Diane are planning a trip to your town, what will they think when they find your website

Will the visitor’s tab be enough to lure them to town? 

A tourism-specific website encourages visitors to come & spend their money in your town.

Your small town needs a separate, tourism-focused website.
Here are some reasons why:

Local Business Support

Boost hometown businesses with online exposure and promotion.

Encourage Tourism

Inspire travelers to explore your small town's hidden treasures.


Elevate your town's presence, making it easy for tourists to find

Additional Benefits of a Tourism-Focused Website
  1. Promote Events and Festivals: Highlight exciting happenings to attract visitors year-round.
  2. Show Town Pride: Instill a sense of community and identity among residents.
  3. 24/7 Accessibility: Offer information and inspiration at any hour, at any time.
  4. Showcase Local Attractions: Display your town’s charm, from landmarks to local culture.

Too Big

Cities of this size have a large marketing budget, a tourism bureau, and already have a tourism-focused website.

Still Too Big

A population of over 5000 people - and plenty of reasons to attract tourists - this city probably already has a tourism-focused site through a chamber or TBID.

Just Right!

They have a chamber site with a "Things to Do" tab but that's it. A perfect candidate for a tourism-focused website to compliment their chamber website.


No chamber. Maybe a town council. Depends on the numer of restaurants, lodging accomodations, etc. Consider having a local business sponsor the site! Click the image to learn more here.

I sure enjoyed working with Cody on my website. His design came out exactly as I was hoping for. He was efficient, creative, and knowledgeable.

Two Websites Working Together to Increase Revenue

Your Chamber or Town Website

Purpose: Serving chamber members and local residents.

A NEW Tourism Specific Website

Purpose: Town identity and attracting visitors … and their money.

The Two Sites Working Together!

Your chamber or town website is fine. Its purpose serves your local residents. Ribbon cuttings, meeting minutes, etc.

But a tourism-focused website is about what makes your town amazing. It focuses on visitors and tourists who bring their money and spend it at your businesses.

Even better – the two websites can co-exist and work together. Link your chamber site to the tourist site and the other way around. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Your Web Designer & Small Town Advocate

I'm Cody, and I love small towns.

  • I grew up in a small town.
  • I currently live in a small town.
  • I vacation in small towns.

I enjoy taking my family to see the largest ball of twine, staying in a local motel, and experiencing what makes different towns in the United States unique.

How much do I love small towns?

  • I served on the board of directors for a small-town chamber of commerce.
  • I created over 40 tourism mobile apps for small towns across the United States.
  • I have designed over 85 (and counting!) websites for small businesses in Western Montana.

He is so fantastic to work with! With professional and quality designs that fit our needs. He was professional, articulate, and honest. From concept to the finished product. He gave us a great website.

Common Questions

Let me know! I’ll take care of any mistakes, outdated information, or inaccuracies free of charge.

Happy to do so. However, keep in mind that any changes to the site (aside from those mentioned above) are subject to my hourly design rate.

There’s a nominal monthly fee of $49/month. That’s it! If you want to have additional content created for the site, have updates made, etc. we can discuss a flat fee for larger projects or we’ll go with my hourly rate, depending on the size and amount of changes. Your monthly fee is for one-year. At the end of the year, you can decide if you want to continue.

No. Not really. It’s a good start, but it gets lost in the shuffle of ribbon cuttings, membership renewals, “meet the board,” etc. Instead, use that page as a jumping-off point to link visitors to a new website built exclusively for your visitors. It’ll show them that your town is “all that” and important enough to have a website dedicated to their needs. A “Things To Do” page on a website is seen as more of an afterthought to your visitors.

Where to Begin: The Process

Check Out
the Website

Take a look at the website I built for your small town. If you don't have one, let's connect! I'd love to design your town's tourism website at no cost.

Discuss with Your Board

It's not a decision to make on your own. Take your time. Meet. Discuss. I've served on a chamber board and understand the process to come to a decision.


Sign the agreement to be the site's sponsor. You agree to a monthly fee for a one-year period. You'll have the chance to renew the contract each year.


You'll add links from your website to the tourism site ... and then we add links back to your chamber site. It's a win-win for members and tourists alike!

You can continue using that “Things To Do” tab on your chamber or town website. But … how much money would you be leaving on the table from increased tourism?

A tourism website for your small town is the perfect answer to bring more tourism dollars to your small businesses.

It’s easy. It’s affordable. It’s worth the small investment.

Do you want to see how beautiful and amazing a simple, small-town website can be?

Take a look and imagine YOUR attractions, your highlights showcased in a tourism-specific website.
