Social media tips all tourism operators should read

Despina Karatzias is the Queen of social media and one of Tourism Tribe's coach .

 

Despina Karatzias one of the Tourism Tribe coaches shares her tips and learnings for Tourism operators.

Despina Karatzias was in Emerald, Queensland last Friday waiting for her flight home. She had just completed a week long Digital Ready Program filled with digital and social media training and mentoring with Tourism Tribe and Capricorn Enterprise in Queensland.

This is the second time this program has been delivered as the first one was such a success.

Despina received very positive feedback and she thinks the reason for its success was that she was able to compliment a 5 hour group workshop with personalised training and support to each individual operator with a 2 hour face to face meeting at their business, these  mentoring sessions were further complimented with a follow up accountability session!
Despina commented that she learned just as much as she taught this week.

Below are the tips Despina shared and we thought you might get value from them.

Tips

  • Upon reflection she created this list of actionable things to consider that may serve you in your business.
  • Check all your listings are seen through to completion. By listings I mean ATDW, Trip Advisor, Facebook and Google etc these are not set and forget – go back and review regularly there are always fields missing or info that needs updating.
  • Claim and verify your business on Google through Google My Business
  • Facebook is not an informercial don’t just make it about “ME” share the love and make it about others in your region that compliment what you do!
  • Do more video! Go pro for your website but for your social even a 15 sec video from your smart phone will suffice but do regularly – don’t just tell people what to do show them some emotion.
  • When was the last time you collaborated and created a package with another business? Maybe time to start getting creative and extending your product offering??

Thank you @Despina

Our team would like to acknowledge the traditional custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respect to their elders past, present and emerging and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today. We acknowledge that the sharing of knowledge has occurred across the lands and waterways of Australia for many thousands of years. As we continue to share stories and support small tourism businesses we try to listen to the knowledge and practice that has always existed here and consider how we can contribute to the preservation of culture and Country wherever we live and work.
