Who should apply for the Indigenous Tourism and Biodiversity Website Award?
I bring this up because in talks with several people who operate indigenous products,some are having concerns about applying – as they thought their websites were not good enough!! Fact is, they’re somewhat embarrassed to have their websites analyzed by experts – and don’t feel empowered to improve their sites by themselves.
I say if you qualify, apply. You can improve your website in January before the voting begins and if you get stuck into the process from the start, you’ll learn a lot about web-based marketing and how other indigenous operators handle biodiversity and cultural diversity.
