Video Content for Tourism Marketing

Storytelling is an essential component of effective content marketing - ever more so today with social media platforms highlighting multimedia content. And videos are a great way for travel and tourism companies to share their stories in a dynamic and engaging way, and to create content attractive to travelers seeking and sharing unique and interesting travel content online.

Small ecotourism businesses and local responsible travel enterprises can take advantage of this powerful marketing tool by applying key digital and content marketing best practices.

Join the webinar to gain professional tips on video making, and practical how-to steps on making the most of the power of storytelling for your travel and tourism marketing through video blogging.
