This is just my opinion, but I wouldn’t choose to use Twitter to promote my tourism business the way @Gabriola007, Gabriola Gables Waterfront Estate in British Columbia is doing it.
Every single tweet is about the estate. They have followed 657 people, trying to get their attention. They have not actually conversed with any of them. It’s broadcast only. It reads like a brochure, and I’m not interested.
Here’s an example that I think is a much better use of Twitter for promoting a tourism business, @Mark_Hayward, owner of Palmetto Guest House in Culebra, Puerto Rico.
He doesn’t even link directly to his guest house promotional site. Instead, Mark talks with people. He shares his many interests, including his Train for Humanity project, small business articles he finds, and family. He talks about his guest house, teases us with the wonderful weather, shares photos, and is a real human being. I want to go visit him.
You choose. Sound like a brochure, or be a real person.
