Create Your Listing
How do I create my listing in ATDW?
CREATING YOUR LISTING IN 8 STEPS
STEP 1. Visit www.atdw-online.com.au
STEP 2. Hit Register now in the top right hand corner and then select Tourism Operator to proceed. Complete the form, filling out all your business details (ABN is optional, you can register without this if you prefer). Just a note – complete the phone number with your region code and no spaces.
STEP 3. Next, complete the Personal Information form to add your details as a user on the account.
STEP 4. Read and accept the Terms & Conditions if you are happy with them, click Let’s Go and now you’re ready to set up your listing
STEP 5. Select the Listing Type that fits best with your business. This is important as the next steps will differ depending on what type you select. Not sure which one to choose? That’s OK, have a look through the ATDW Listing Guidelines for a description of each Listing Type.
STEP 6. Once that is done, complete all the fields to create your listing and then hit “Send for Review”. Just to note, the mandatory fiends are marked (*) in the orange navigation panel.
* Images should be a minimum of 1600 x 1200 pixels and no larger than 5MB each. Images with text (eg: posters or logos) will not be accepted
* For accommodation listings, your booking link is your choice. We (GORRT) suggest adding your own contact details or a link to your own website to promote booking direct and avoiding fees and commissions to 3rd party travel agents, however you can use any link to any place where bookings can be made for your accommodation.
* Utilise the “Deals” section and update as often as you like. Promoting deals and packages here will ensure more potential visitors are exposed to your business.
Next, you will be asked for a payment (Please note: do not enter payment details, this is where your ATDW Coupon Code comes in).
STEP 7. You would have received an ATDW Coupon Code from us in an email. Enter your code in this step and click “Verify”. Can’t find your code? Just get in touch with Jo at email@example.com or 0448 448 666.
STEP 8. Review all your details, making sure everything is correct, then click “Submit”
Your listing will take 2-5 business days to review before it goes live and then publishes to our websites.
Have your descriptions and photos ready to go to make the process a bit quicker.
Aim for descriptions around 2 – 3 short paragraphs (and really have your target audience in mind when writing).
Around 6 photos is ideal, but you can add up to 10. Photos must be landscape and quite large (minimum 1600 x 1200 px). If you need help resizing, Canva is a great online, easy to use and free tool. We’ve created a template of the minimum photo size you can use – access it here.
The image you display first is the image people will see on search pages. This, plus the first sentence or two of your description will determine whether people click through or not. Make sure you use an image and description that will make people want to know more.
Is there a cost involved?
No. This cost is currently subsidised as part of the COVID recovery package. If you activate your listing before the end of June 2021, your listing is free for 12 months. If you already have an ATDW listing, no need to do anything, your expiry date will be extended by 12 months.
Can I change my photos or description after it's been submitted?
Yes! We definitely recommend you keep your listing fresh, so if anything changes, or you just have some new photos you want to use, you can make these changes by logging into ATDW Online.
If I change any of my listing details in ATDW, will the other tourism sites update?
Yes. You don’t need to do anything extra. Once your ATDW listing update is completed and approved, the corresponding tourism sites will pull the updates through.
I haven't got the right sized photos, what do I do?
Can I list an event I’m running in ATDW?
Yes, and it’s free. Events listed on the ATDW are published directly to visitvictoria.com / visitgreatoceanroad.org.au and the related destination website.
