Go Future Media started Tourism Tweetup in mid 2011 as on opportunity for those working in tourism marketing to come together to chat about the use of social media as a marketing tool.
We often get together as tourism sales people but much less often seem to have the opportunity to get together as tourism marketers. This thought lead to a tweet and this tweet lead to the idea to create a regular tourism marketing ‘TweetUp’.
Upcoming Tweetup Dates – Sydney
Tuesday 16 June 2015 #TourismTweetup
Video, video, video – it is all people seem to be talking about when it comes to content marketing.
Online videos are viewed throughout the travel journey particularly before travel decisions are made with a report released from Google (June 2014) stating 66% of people view video when thinking about taking a trip and 63% view video when looking for ideas of activities to do at a particular destination.
But are we making the most of this medium and in particular YouTube? Well to talk to us about video and YouTube Tourism Tweetup has invited YouTube expert Steve Crombie from the Totem Network. Totem is a fully certified YouTube Enterprise Partner and has worked on some super cool YouTube projects in a range of industries including travel & tourism.
I heard Steve speak at Social Media Week last year as was extremly impressed by his detailed knowledge of YouTube and his connection & relationship with YouTube influencers.
For our June Tourism Tweetup we will discuss the importance and opportunities of YouTube for tourism marketers – beyond the basics.
Date: Tuesday 16 June 2015
Time: 6.00 – 7.30pm
