The world of marketing has changed forever and rapidly changing technology continues to put more power into the hands of your customers. We are marketing in a digitally enabled experience economy and for tourism businesses, this means that it is more important now than it has ever been before to celebrate the stories of your guests. Customers are the heart of your business and what they say, photograph and post about your business is far more prolific and influential than what you can put on your website or place in an ad.

Over 90% of people trust your guests’ content ahead of what you say about your business! In this online course, we will demonstrate ways in which you can incorporate the stories of customers who have experienced your product into your marketing strategy. Our training material covers a mix of marketing methods that tourism businesses can use to effectively promote their product, including online reviews, collaborating with social influencers and more.
