The Website’s History
The idea for the ‘Health & Fitness Costa del Sol’ brand came about from the CEO & Founder of the company, Stefana Attard. Having worked in new media all her working life and having a keen interest in Health & Fitness she realized there was a big gap in the market for people on the Coast to advertise their business and find relevant Health & Fitness services and information.
There was no single place for users to find more information about these local companies or for these companies to market and advertise their businesses.
Many companies were not in a situation to spend a huge amount of money on well optimized websites or magazine advertising that wasn’t bringing them in the return they wanted or needed, so the idea was to offer a place for companies to be able to shout about their services in an extremely cost effective way, on a well optimized and popular website.
Hence the idea for the Health & Fitness Costa del Sol website was born.
Originally the idea was to offer a simple business directory, which was how the website launched in October of 2014.
It quickly came apparent that people wanted to be able to advertise more than just their basics, static company details, they want a place where they could talk about what was happening in their company on a day-to-day basis, something the users also wanted.
So in December of 2014 the blog section was added to the website and very quickly became popular for the up-to-date daily information being offered.
As the website grew so did the services we wanted to offer and in March 2016 an updated, fully responsive, website was launched. The new website offered an Events Calendar, a Jobs Board and allowed all the valuable information that had been growing in the original websites blog to be more easily accessible within a new navigational structure. Today the website directory, which started as the main element of the website, is just one part of the website offering.
This naturall progression has lead to our website to what it is today, an online magazine for the Health, Fitness and Beauty industry on the Costa del Sol in Spain.
We now offer loads of general health, fitness and beauty articles and content along with the information offered from local, Costa del Sol companies.
