Find out how to grow your global audience, create shareable, beautiful content, and get people coming to your tourism business, all through social media!
Congratulations! You've landed on the right place to learn how you can reach thousands of people all over the world who want to use your tourism services. Plus build a global community of followers who love your content, create a memorable brand that cuts through all the online noise, and do this all effectively and cheaply. Plus you can start now!
You know that all your potential tourism customers are using social media and planning their holiday adventures online, whether they're from New Zealand or overseas, but you don't know how to reach them.
You use Facebook personally and you probably have a presence on social media for your tourism business, but you know you're not reaching its full potential. You know there's amazing photos you could be taking every day but get stuck on how to take cool photos from your smartphone and whether to create and post videos. You don't even know how to begin creating an inspirational competition or Facebook ad to promote your tourism services.
Then, when you do finally gain followers from all over the world, you don't know how to convert them to customers!
"A brand is no longer what we tell the customer it is - it is what customers tell each other it is."
Then there's all that devil in the detail.
Social media is not set and forget. First you dive in and create a Facebook account for your business, then another on Instagram, and that's when the real learning begins. So now, when do you post? What content should you post and how often? Do you use hashtags, and which ones should you use to reach the customers you need to reach? And what even is a hashtag?
Don't worry...we'll walk you through all this.
Trust us, we get it! Remember, although we're now expert in using social media, we had to start at the beginning too. And because you're reading this, we know you're ready to take the leap. But you're not alone, we're right here with you, holding your hand until you're a pro!
What if we told you all this was possible and more?
And that it would give you the edge over your competitors and take you directly to your potential customers without being just another tourism service using social media badly?
Well it is possible, we will help you and you can give yourself a huge leg up in social media so that you can connect with the right people, engage influencers to spread the word, and get the best online reviews on Facebook, Yelp and more!
"We don't have a choice of whether we DO social media, the question is how WELL will you do it." Erik Qualman
As the saying goes, "A picture paints a thousand words," and it's never been more true than in tourism. We know you love your business and want to share it with everyone (and get them to share it with everyone they know), and social media is just a bigger, better, supercharged version of everybody's word of mouth. Plus when you maximise Facebook ads you can reach tens of thousands of potential customers with just a few dollars, wisely spent. And as a savvy business owner, you'd be a fool to miss out on that.
That, and you will get all our expert tips and tricks that will save you time and money. Yep, there's also that.

90% of Kiwis aged 15+ use social media in New Zealand.
