Learn about San Francisco Travel’s “always on” approach to content marketing

Learn about San Francisco Travel’s “always on” approach to content marketing | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it
Dan Rosenbaum of San Francisco Travel explains the destination's move toward "always on" content marketing.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Learn about San Francisco Travel’s “always on” approach to content marketing - Destination Think! - It can be easy for any organization to become siloed and lose sight of its goals.

Dan Rosenbaum, Senior Manager of Content and Social Media Marketing, faced exactly this challenge with his team at San Francisco Travel (SFT) in 2013. At that time, the team’s primary objective was to drive traffic to the SFT website, but a lack of alignment between consumer marketing, social media, PR, and email marketing departments meant that each team was creating its own content, and no one was coordinating the effort.

Dan’s team at SFT knew that it needed to set more meaningful goals and communicate to its audience effectively with relevant content, so they changed the way they thought about content marketing in order to promote their destination successfully and work as a team.

LGBTQ influencer marketing success story: GayCities & New Orleans

LGBTQ influencer marketing success story: GayCities & New Orleans | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it

Late last year, the New Orleans Tourism Marketing Corporation‘s advertising agency reached out to my team at Q.Digital with the goal of increasing awareness and consideration of New Orleans as a travel destination within the LGBTQ community. To help turn this goal into a reality, we developed a plan to partner with Max Emerson and Kyle Krieger, two popular (and easy on the eyes) Instagram/YouTube influencers.

Matt Skallerud's insight:

We sent Max and Kyle to New Orleans for a few days to shoot a new season of Out in GayCities, a travel video series GayCities launched in 2013 (in partnership with Lexus). Max and Kyle have a great on-screen chemistry, which made for great video content and a great season!
