At Stamp, we believe places are some of the most interesting things to brand. We find the most powerful and unique brand position for a city or attraction and build awareness.
One of the most daunting tasks for a destination marketing organization (DMO) is making the decisions necessary to rebrand the community they represent. Branding often includes a tagline that captures what it is that makes your community different from other places. But before you craft the perfect one, you have to ask whether you need a tagline at all.
Giving meeting planners a visual experience during the decision making phase of the venue search process is vital. Research tells us that videos are found to be 58% more trustworthy than still imagery or words alone. The advent of Virtual Reality (VR) in the hands of your DMO opens the door to the most immersive video to date and a chance to take your Familiarization Tour experience to the next level.
You’ve heard the old saying “a picture’s worth a thousand words”—as a destination marketing professional you want to make sure the pictures you use communicate the right thousand words. At Stamp, we believe that a visual sense of authenticity comes from capturing, collecting, and curating images that feature both extraordinary moments and everyday life.
