Retreat Challenges

Running retreats and the venues that host them comes with many challenges including effective marketing, team management, logistics coordination and maintaining high service standards.

Building a beautiful venue, creating an excellent reputation and providing sought after retreats requires vision, planning, consistency and plenty of hard work.

Understanding the challenges you face and providing the best, customised solutions is what we do.

Venues – new & existing

Extensive experience working in and managing successful retreat venues, taught us how to book out a calendar, maintain high service standards and manage the bottom line to profitability.

Leaders – new & veteran

Having many retreats under our belt as participants, crew and organisers, we know how to create transformative experiences, bringing out the best in you and your attendees.

Web Development

Be where your audience is

Online is where most people connect with information, plan and purchase. Even if we are promoting digital detox and getting back to nature, we still must connect with customers and supporters online. Our presence needs to be effective.

Here at Eco Freelance we understand that an effective online presence is about more than just websites and social media. Moreover, if the foundations are laid well, online strategies serve very well in spreading the message and awareness and ensuring a long term presence and wider range of influence in the future.

The management and organisation of a venue and retreat business can take away precious time and energy from customer engagement and service. Especially during the startup and formative years.

Leveraging the appropriate technology, management and marketing strategies to best fit your retreat business is essential for success.

Social Networks

Socials Are Important

Social media platforms connect you with your clients, increase awareness about your services, and in turn help fill your retreats.

It helps to generate credibility about your service and brand by telling people you are active and communicating widely with your audience.

By helping you reach a greater number of potential clients, benefits of social media include reduced marketing costs and increased bookings.

Are Your Social Metrics Low?

 

Do you have an online presence but never seem to get the high engagement and responses you need?

Are you using the socials most appropriate for your genre and audience? Do you have a brand presence online? Is it easily recognisable and consistent across all platforms?

A comprehensive and consistent brand identity enhances your credibility with your target audience.

Socials must be correctly configured and their content optimised to generate maximum traffic to your business and increase engagement.

How We Help You

 

Our Content Creation Services work by saving your time, allowing you to continue providing your services and support while your brand remains active online.

Share your ideas and a brief for your content, then leave it to us to quickly create, edit, polish and optimise it for SEO. You proof it and we take care of the publishing across multiple platforms…fast!

Digital Marketing

Make your online presence fly

Establishing our online presence is a vital first step that lays the foundation for success. Offline marketing is no longer reliable or viable for most applications.

Marketing is now predominantly digital as this is where most people can be found on a consistent basis. There are many ways that a business connects with their audience online, these are referred to as channels.

Significant effort is required to make successful digital marketing strategies that cover many channels. Relying on any one channel is not wise.

Therefore it is important to select the most appropriate channels for any campaign. Creating an online presence and brand is an investment. That investment will only generate return if supported by well informed digital strategies.

Paul, Merle and their team worked tirelessly to ensure a smooth running of our event, the vegetarian food was delicious & the workshop space inspiring. Participants bonded more, talked deeper & appreciated simpler things we often take for granted.

The camp-fire dinner is a memory we all hold very dear…..Thank you for a memorable & unique retreat!

We held a four-day retreat, followed by an eight day training program. The staff were amazing, very attentive to the needs of our staff and our participants.

And don’t even get me started on the food… let’s just say it’s a daily feast that leaves everyone smiling!

Amos Clifford, Founder & Director, Association of Nature and Forest Therapy

 

During our event Paul’s and Merle’s warmth and willingness to work with our last minute requests and changing circumstances while maintaining a balanced, caring respect for our participants, their staff and the venue was outstanding.
