"When it comes to hospitality marketing, your tourism association is gold. As a new member of Tourism Calgary, I got a big run-down on all the marketing they’re doing to attract visitors to Calgary. Did you realize their website gets about 100 times the traffic of a typical business site in Calgary? Over 115,000 visitors a month! And people stay on their site awhile, looking for things to do in Calgary, and places to go. As a member you get a profile page within their site, and a link back to yours, which really helps your site rank better too. What’s more, it’s free to list your events, which gives people another reason to come on down and see you. And a final thought: Tourism Calgary is packed with hospitality marketers, who will give their time to you to help you make the most of your membership, advise you on marketing, refer you to other member companies with whom you can partner, and generally help you learn how to market your company (i.e. lots of excellent seminars)!" - Jacqueline Drew, CEO, Tenato Strategy Inc., a Calgary based strategic marketing company.
