How Working With Bloggers and Influencers to Increase Destination Visibility

You have a website, but are people finding you on the web? Getting traffic to your website can be tough. Are you blogging and using social media to drive traffic and grab possible customer’s attention? Or are you trapped in the not enough time, don’t know what to say, don’t know how dilemma?

Bloggers and influencers have the power to improve awareness, engagement, and traffic to your blog. And involve very little work on your part. I’m not talking big celebrities. It can be someone in your local area or around the world. But someone who can help capture what is special about your area and help get the word out.

After this webinar you will learn:
-Where to find bloggers and influencers
-How to choose bloggers and influencers who will best serve your destinations

Find Your Brand's Voice for Effective Online Interaction

With the rise of automated bots, more and more customers are finding their interaction with brands online to be, well, a little robotic. A bad interaction with a bot can ruin customer relationships that businesses have spent years building. Mike Koehler, founder of digital marketing agency Smirk New Media, sees a solution for brands which runs counter to the AI revolution. Brands should do a deep dive into developing unique brand voices for their content, which ensures every interaction in social media, live chat or review response is true to a company's outlook, culture and vocabulary. The team at Smirk New Media has developed a customer service and reputation management system called Active Response around this philosophy.
