As domestic leisure travel begins to show early signs of recovery (in some places more than others), there is an opportunity to leverage leisure to try to (also) fill in some of the weeknight slump in occupancy due to the loss of weekday business and convention travel.
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.
Stamp worked with the Alabama Bicentennial Commission to help develop and promote their three-year initiative celebrating Alabama's 200 years of statehood. Here we discuss 5 components of a successful statewide marketing program.
The travel and tourism community has been upended by booking and event cancellations, trip postponements, and the temporary closings of many local businesses as we grapple with how best to slow the spread of COVID-19. But even in this uncertain climate, Destination Management Organizations play an important role in supporting local stakeholders.
Curating content from social influencers is an effective strategy for reaching potential visitors who may be on the fence about visiting your city, or who may have not considered your place to be a viable option for business, leisure or bleisure travel.
Encourage repeat visits to your destination by presenting reasons for travelers to return with their family or friends. Giving these departing guests a list of your "Must-Dos, Must-Sees and Must-Eats" will give them multiple reasons to bounce back to you.
With more travelers looking to social channels for help in planning their next excursion, having a robust social media strategy will help your DMO highlight your destination’s best offerings and influence the travel plans of your most important target markets.
