A New York company has contacted us looking for nudists/naturists who would be willing to be interviewed over Skype for a new TV series about nudism.
If you revisit the Accommodation Directory, you’ll notice substantial changes. Unfortunately, the old directory could no longer be maintained, so I’ve had to move the information into a new format.
As I moved the data, I removed some old entries that appear to be now inactive, and updated some of the others. The editing will continue for a while.
I hope there aren’t any errors, but please will both owners and guests let me know if they spot any errors in the new directory.
Some of the changes result from using a new software platform for the Directory. The link to Google maps has gone, but if 5 or more owners are willing to pay £10 each then I will buy the necessary software to link them back to Google maps again!
All this takes time and money, so if you appreciate the value that NACO offers you please leave a tip in the link on the site. Or offers of a naturist break are very welcome
Do you want to write an article for the Clothes Are Optional blog? This may be an opportunity to inform naturists about your accommodation, or recommend a place where you have really enjoyed staying.
We welcome articles related to naturist accommodation in the UK or abroad, or about naturist places and events and other news or topics of interest to naturists.
When appropriate, links to the articles will be created in Overseas Accommodation, Naturist Links or the UK directory. If you don’t have your own web site, the article will do instead.
It doesn’t matter if you don’t think you can write – just provide the information and we can edit it into an article! Please note that all articles are subject to editing and we reserve the right to refuse to publish.
Articles should be more than just advertisements. For example, an article on particular accommodation might be written from the point of view of the guest’s experience there, the owner’s experience of running the accommodation or how they came to live there in the first place, interesting things about the locality, local events or things to do or see, or some personal experience or insight that would be interesting to readers.
Pictures are welcome. They should be relevant (pictures of the accommodation, for example) and reasonable quality. Having people in the picture makes it more visually interesting – the people do not have to be recognisable. The total size of files attached to emails to the naco email address should be less than 500 kb or they will not be received successfully. (If necessary, we can give you another address.)
Please be factual – falsehoods and malice are against defamation law and will have to be rejected. Equally, avoid ‘hype’: promising too high leads to disappointment. We want people to find accommodation, places and experiences that are just right for them!
I was doing a review of the year’s statistics and I can now report that visitors to the main NACO site and directory are running at 4,000 to 5,000 per month. Three times in 2013 the visitors topped 5,000, with 5,146 visiting in August.
Meanwhile the blog has been receiving steadly increasing numbers of visitors, with an average of almost 300 views per day in December.
This is an excellent opportunity to promote your business, to the people who are most receptive to the message, since most who look at the site will have an interest in nude accommodation. And especially now, when people are thinking about booking their annual holidays!
Anyone who has something interesting to say, about their own or someone else’s accommodation, can submit an article or photos for the blog. This is absolutely free, and is open to accommodation in the UK or abroad. (Note: all articles are subject to approval and editing.)
In addition, all UK and Ireland owners are entitled to a free directory entry. Why not check your entry now to see if it is telling people what you offer?
In addition, you can support the site that offers you all this by taking a paid banner ad on the main site that will get people’s attention. Costs are very reasonable. Please contact me if you are interested.
Best wishes for success in 2014,
The Naturist Action Group blog has many articles that may interest NACO users, but one of its long-running themes is the effort to obtain naturist facilities in London. There is now a group acting to open up a naturist area on Hampstead Heath. Anyone who uses the Heath is welcome to support them.
