Book a Canadian Travel Twitter Party

 

The Travel Tourism industry is starting to see the importance of social media marketing.

  • 52% of travellers said they actually changed their original travel plans based on something they read in a review (Sprout Social 2014)
  • 82% of consumers trust a company more if they are involved in social media (Forbes 2014)
  • 88% of consumers trust online reviews as much as getting a personal recommendation (Search Engine Land 2014)

Twitter parties increase brand awareness and strengthen the community by increasing dialogue between the brand and their Followers. They create a personable conversation and is a great way to build true advocates for your brand.

They can be especially useful for gaining new product exposure. Utilizing strong influencers and prizes, a large participation and trending hashtag could lead to product awareness to those outside the brand’s immediate Twitter follower circle.

Finally a Travel Chat Where Canadians Win Prizes

We noticed that Canadian consumers on Twitter often find they are not eligible to win prizes awarded in travel themed Twitter parties. We decided to give Canadians a forum to talk about travel and give them a chance to WIN some prizes while they are at it.

Book a Canadian #TravelChatCA Twitter Party — Create BUZZ!

Partnering with the @TravelChatCA team offered the opportunity to reach a national, influential audience and establish Ontario’s Highlands as a premiere winter destination. January’s #TravelChatCA was the perfect opportunity to launch our #WinterWander campaign and start an online conversation about winter activities, allowing operators from the region to participate and share their experiences with potential visitors. As an organization we strive to be a brand that is both personable and authentic; this online initiative allowed us an avenue to communicate naturally with an audience and demonstrate just that. Working with the @TravelChatCA team was seamless. Their knowledge and expertise about social media and industry trends guided the development of the conversation, resulting in a chat that far exceeded our expectations. We look forward to participating in and contributing to future #TravelChatCA conversations! See you next month.

Ontario's Highlands Tourism Organization

As a small business with a limited budget for advertising we put the bulk of our marketing effort into social media. Being a sponsor for a TravelChatCA Twitter chat and engaging with many potential customers fits perfectly with our strategy. The combined audience reach of the travel chat is impressive and the type of engaged traveller that participates is exactly the kind of customer we are looking for!

In a great big sea of hashtags and trends across social media, it can be difficult for small businesses to find a new audience. Participating in #TravelChatCA far exceeded our expectations and exposed Calabogie Peaks Resort to tens of thousands of people. We reached as many people in a single night as would take an entire week on Twitter. Plus we’ve been able to establish valuable new connections with active bloggers from across the province. Thanks #TravelChatCA!

Partnering with #TravelChatCA was a no-brainer because working with Mary, Sharon and Will in the past has been a breeze. Their series of channels, including #TravelChatCA, are a great way to connect with potential Canadian visitors and spread St. Pete/Clearwater’s message.

Honestly, I think their media kit is legit! But I will say I didn’t really make my decision based on it. The price is very reasonable and I knew they all would do a great job and had a great following, so that was key. I think it’s a no-brainer for anyone who has worked with them in the past and knows the value.

You were wonderful ambassadors for Buffalo during the whole conversation and we can’t thank you enough for your positivity. Those 60 minutes of the TwitterChat were quite the whirlwind but we saw a lot of positive comments, had a few engaging conversations, made a lot of connections and had a nice little surge in Twitter followers. We were thrilled with the chat.

Karen Fashana, Director of Marketing

Visit Buffalo Niagara

TravelChatCA proved tremendously valuable to Visit Buffalo Niagara in its 2016 marketing efforts. The number of impressions our destination received over the course of one hour was truly eye-opening. Mary, Will and Sharon are consummate professionals and a pleasure to work with to promote our resurgent destination.
