Destination Marketing

Festival or Event Marketing

Showcase every facet of the event or festival. Telling the story with images of the music, food, activities, kid’s fun and crafts.

Beach and Sun Spots

Imagine giving your fans a glimpse of sun, surf and sand. Showcase beach activities, nightlife and adventure.

Group Marketing

Do you have an upcoming group tour that needs a few more passengers? How about putting together some highlights of the upcoming tour. Then create a final slide with the tour dates and your contact information.

*Tip:  remember to include a link in the Facebook post to the group tour landing page on your website. This way people will be able to watch the video, then click the link in your post and go directly to the tour details on your website.

Don’t miss the chance for people to know who to connect with. Design an image featuring your name, company and contact info. You can use design tools to create the right size image (based on the slideshow video orientation you’ve selected) and then add graphics and text. Check out tools like Canva, PicMonkey and others. Remember, most of your viewers will most likely be mobile viewers, so make sure the text is large enough to be read on a mobile device.
