My Tourism Currents co-founder Becky McCray and I decided last month to make our monthly newsletter fully available for anyone to view on our website, without a login (although we still take signups for you to get it first, via email.)
We’re pretty proud of our work and thought you’d like a quick update on the last two issues:
- April 2010 – LinkedIn for tourism – Most everyone is on it, but many wonder how to really use it….we talked about the LinkedIn social networking site and how it can help you for tourism and destination marketing. Includes some Twitter hashtag tips, travel writer/blogger info and our recent Tech in Twenty interview about Tourism Currents.
- May 2010 – Social media and tech conferences for tourism pros – What is one of the best ways to figure out tech and social media? Go OFFline to attend a tech or social media conference. We give concrete, detailed suggestions for the most useful events to attend in order to learn plenty of things that can help with destination marketing (to say nothing of some pretty amazing networking and brand-building for your town, region, city or attraction.) We also included some tips to amp up your LinkedIn profile, as a follow-up to April’s newsletter.
We are reopening our online classes later this month (multi-part lessons, videos, a forum, live Q&A with us – all about social media and tech for tourism.)
I’ll put up a post here the minute we’re open, or you can get on our Early Bird list. Thanks!
Whoohoo – free newsletters – spread the love 🙂
For those who are rolling their eyes about the conferences, hear them out and give it a try. The first one I went to was, well, awful. But the last two have been nothing short of spectacular, and I think attending South by Southwest (SXSW) this year might have been life-changing.
At least I understand the inside jokes between our two hosts here 🙂
Thanks, Andy (and so wonderful to actually meet you in person at SXSW this year. A major highlight!)
