Kangaroo Island Tourism Alliance

Kangaroo Island Tourism Alliance (KITA) is a non-profit membership-based organisation created to promote and market South Australia’s Kangaroo Island as a complete nature-based destination for travellers year-round. KITA manages the Tour Kangaroo Island website, a key source of useful information to help visitors plan and enjoy their stay. 

As the island’s peak tourism body, KITA supports its members by encouraging holidaymakers to travel beyond the most well known places of interest, such as Remarkable Rocks and Admirals Arch, to see more of the island and discover its lesser-known attractions.

KITA and its members are working together to further develop the island’s tourism, food and beverage industries. They also work closely with the government, South Australian Tourism Commission and other industries in the travel and tourism sector to secure funding and promote Kangaroo Island’s unique attractions to the world.

Our brief: What Kangaroo Island Tourism Alliance needed

KITA’s new website promotes Kangaroo Island as eight distinctive and unique regions, and encourages visitors to explore each of them. Visiting all of the regions means slowing down and spending more time on the island, which in turn means travellers spend more money locally on accommodation, food, tours and attractions. 

KITA approached us to revise outdated website content, develop new content and improve the website’s visibility on search engines. This aims to ensure visitors can easily source the information they need to plan their Kangaroo Island holiday—with a focus on promoting the attractions of each of the eight regions to entice them to stay longer. To do this, we reviewed their website’s structure and content, developed multiple new pages and rewrote existing pages to maximise SEO potential.

Our solution for Kangaroo Island Tourism Alliance

Our extensive SEO keyword research to maximise search engine performance was used as the basis for developing new, and rewriting existing metadata, heading tags and web page copy. 

We developed a variety of content aimed at different audiences, including inspirational pages, features about specific attractions, information-giving pieces and itineraries—all with internal links to related pages to highlight all eight regions and make navigating the website simpler.

As well as giving copywriters clear instructions about SEO keywords, links, web page structure and length in the jointly-developed copy briefs, KITA wanted the tone to be fun, friendly, professional and authentic. That way, it would appeal to the broadest possible range of potential site visitors—including families, millennials and seniors.

After writing new copy, and thoroughly fact-checking and copy editing existing content internally, we returned it to KITA for approval. We resolved the queries raised by KITA, and adjusted the copy based on their suggestions before publication.
