Experience Pictou's Basic (Free) and Premium Advertising

We would like to introduce you to the ExperiencePictou.com website. A site born from a vision to allow our prospective visitors the opportunity to exlpore all that Pictou has to offer. All businesses and as many extras (attractions, monuments, architecture etc...) as possible, all in one place.


To increase Pictou’s tourism results on Search Engines (Google Search)
To attract Tourists and increase their average length of stay
To market Pictou as a place to Experience and as a destination (not just a stopover on the way to other destinations in PEI, Cape Breton and Nova Scotia)
To present Pictou in an attractive and inviting format that is highly professional, engaging to users and mobile friendly, while utilizing current technologies in tourism marketing.


The website will updated with Photos, Videos, Tourist Tales and provide News and a Newsletter to any News subscribers on the website.


Social Media accounts will be maintained on the Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube accounts that have been created for the website.


We have provided basic listings for all Pictou Tourist centric businesses on the ExperiencePictou.com website. The listings service has free basic listings with an opportunity for businesses to upgrade to Premium listings to advertise their business or to just support Pictou Marketing with this website. The listing service is only available to Pictou businesses at this time (unless the attraction is unique and is in close proximity to Pictou ie zipline, tidal bore rafting etc…). Pictou businesses and businesses outside of Pictou will be able to buy advertising on the site. The goal of the listing service is to allow the user to experience what Pictou has to offer first so they will choose to visit and extend their visit.
