Work With Influencers
Many modern internet users have developed a distrust when it comes to direct advertising and overt marketing methods. However, many of these people can be reached through influencers. Their followers tend to be loyal and tend to trust the influencer’s opinions more readily. By partnering with influencers, the entrepreneur can promote their business across different platforms, especially to niche audiences.
A shockingly high number of marketers, almost 92%, believes influencer marketing to be an effective form of marketing according to the Influencer Marketing Hub, 2018. The reason behind this? Influencers are able to generate higher user engagement than content published by brands. The average engagement rate with influencers is estimated to be at 5.7%, now this may seem like a low number, but this is nearly twice the engagement rate branded content receives on social media.
Online Advertising Strategies
Online advertising should be informed by the data gathered through market research. Using this information search advertising can be targeted to specific regions. Re-marketing can be a useful tool to reach out to people who have previously engaged with your brand. This places the entrepreneur in a position to remind the audience of your brand and local attractions.
Video and VR marketing
Video and virtual reality marketing can go a long way towards using a local attraction in marketing efforts. Video content can be easily shared across social platforms and is readily consumed.
Virtual reality marketing goes one step further. Users can enjoy an immersive experience by connecting directly with a service, product or location. This immersive experience can entail anything from flying a small plane to trying out hotel rooms. The countless ways in which VR marketing can give your audience an enjoyable experience will certainly help to differentiate you from your competitors. Generally VR marketing is used in the form of virtual tours of local hotels, virtual travel experiences of entertainment venues or 360 degree tours of attractions – all of which are in abundance in California.
There are numerous destinations and attractions in California which lures tourists and holiday-goers year round. By making use of modern marketing techniques such as virtual reality and influencer marketing, businesses can tap into and make the most of local attractions while building brand trust at the same time.
