Right now, people are visiting your area, and they are shooting video of your best events and attractions. They may upload it to their own account, share it on Facebook, or let it languish on their hard drive. How can you turn that into a big asset?
|Video cameras are getting
smaller all the time!
In the April 8 Tourism Chat, the topic was all things video for tourism. The talk turned to encouraging your visitors to upload their videos.
@Decillis mentioned Discover Ohio’s My Ohio, collecting photos and videos from travelers.
@GathanDBorden mentioned The Share Louisville Project.
My own home county, Woods County, Oklahoma, just launched their new site, and I’m proud to see a section for Videos Sent To Us. Go, Woods County!

We purchased a Flip video to send out with guests during the day. The first ones were a hoot but our computer crashed so they haven’t been posted yet. We hope it jazzes up the blog, adds to our FB page and gives us something to share on YouTube.
This was something I learned about at an innkeeping seminar last Nov. and we are finally getting around to doing it.

I love this idea! I’d love to see lots more small businesses pick up on it. Also, glad to see you implement an idea you picked up from an industry meeting.
