Atherton Tablelands, 6th November, 2014 – Learn social media the smart way with a dedicated member’s forum brought to you by Tropical Tablelands Tourism (TTT) next Wednesday, November 12.
TTT Chair and Member for Barron River Michael Trout said the workshop would give members the opportunity to explore the essentials of social media marketing and learn social media directly from one of the tourism industry’s most high regarded strategists.
“Kate Duffy is currently sitting in the role of destination content director with Tourism Tropical North Queensland (TTNQ), and is highly experienced in this field including managing the Canadian Tourism Commission’s social media before coming to Australia.”
Mr Trout said the idea behind the workshop was to give member’s a real taste of the marketing power of social media campaigns – creating, managing and distributing social content through online communities.
“No technical or prior knowledge is required to come along and the forum is open to all members. On the day we will look at TTNQ’s digital strategy for the region, TTT’s work in this area, how operators can leverage from this and practical tips for using key platforms such as Facebook and Instagram.”
Mr Trout said the workshop was an excellent opportunity for operators to engage with TTT and gain a better understanding of the work it carried out.
“This is a great example of TTT working with members to actively utilise the growing use of social media platforms to drive visitors to the destination,” he added.
The event will be held on November 12 from 10am to 12 noon and is free for TTT members. It also includes a networking function, which will follow on from the workshop.
“On the day we will also take the opportunity to launch Discover’s 2015/16 visitor guide where we will unveil our new plans to take advantage of these growing social media platforms. This is a great opportunity for members to meet the Discover team as well as ask any questions about the new web publication and dedicated smart phone app that we will be rolling out.”
