What is Your Days Out?
YDO is a platform that provides tools for business owners and event organisers to engage with existing customers and reach potential new ones.
YDO is a community of people sharing information about fun and interesting things to do that can be enjoyed by children and adults alike.
Information is available on farms, theme parks, playgrounds, birthday party venues, indoor family fun, adventure, school tours, summer camps and much, much more.
As the content grows the more useful the site becomes.
People can search and find things to do in their current location, plan ahead for a future vacation or find events on this weekend.
How does YDO work?
YDO is built on the principal of user-generated content (UGC).
What this means is that anyone in the YDO community can publish a listing for a venue or an event. This can be the owner of a business or event organiser or a just adding details for a free playground or local park.
The type of content that can be included in a free basic listing is:
- a short description of the attraction (word count is limited)
- a photo
- a list of available facilities
- visitor information (prices, opening hours, contact details)
- address with a pinned location on a map
- user reviews and ratings
Once a free listing is published on YDO it can be updated and edited by anyone in the YDO community (this update by anyone feature is called a wiki).
