What a wonderful summer that was! Sunny summer 2018 was certainly a good one for escaping to the seaside, and this was reflected in further growth in our traffic. Visits to the site were up by 8.5% to 308,551, and hut views were up by 9.2% to 417,889
We have exciting plans for BeachHuts in 2019, including to introduce some new features to the website, so keep an eye out!
BeachHuts.com has today moved home from dreamy Dorset to sunny Suffolk to become part of the SpeedyBooker family of websites. SpeedyBooker is a specialist in travel websites and operates several nice sites including www.universityrooms.com and www.britainsfinest.co.uk. We have been looking to broaden our network of websites and an opportunity to grow the BeachHuts market for short-term rentals. We will not be making any changes in the near-term other than changing the domain name from Beach-Huts.com to BeachHuts.com (this will be a simple redirect) but watch this space for exciting developments in the future!
The website following is growing nicely at about 16% per year and is now up to 282,000 users in the last 12 months. We do see opportunity to accelerate this growth and will be investing in the site and its marketing to achieve this.
Hagen Rose has grown and nurtured BeachHuts.com since 2004 and you can rest assured the website is still in safe hands. We are committed to the future of BeachHuts.com and the new BeachHuts team look forward to working with you.
