…And They Have Some Things to Say

This is an outstanding workshop.

…Practical tools and strategies that you can implement…

It covers so many topics in a very personal atmosphere.

I enjoyed every session I attended. I only wish I could have been in two places at once.

Why We Created this Workshop

We created the DIY Tourism Marketing Workshop because we believe the internet levels the playing field for everyone. Not every organization has the financial resources to hire an agency or other internet marketing expert, but there are many effective strategies and tools for promoting your story and competing in the marketplace that you can (and should) implement on your own.

What You Will Learn

Learn how to tell your story in a compelling way that reaches the right audience and encourages them to take action from Magellan Strategy Group’s Chris Cavanaugh, a travel and tourism strategic marketing consultant, and the team from JB Media Institute, an internet marketing training program. Conference sessions include:

  • Digital storytelling to reach today’s visitors
  • Social media, including paid advertising
  • Search engine optimization and marketing
  • Partnership and influencer marketing
  • Online public relations

This one-and-a-half-day event will be held in one of the country’s fastest growing tourism destinations, Asheville, North Carolina. Enjoy the sights, sounds and color of the Blue Ridge Mountains while you gain up-to-date marketing strategies that you can take back to your destination, attraction, or tourism-related business. This event is offered in November to help you take advantage of the slower winter season and make an actionable plan to elevate your marketing results in 2020.

Space is limited and the event is expected to sell-out. Early registration is highly encouraged.
