If you’re in the travel and tourism industry Tourism Currents offers fantastic social media training from a couple ladies who are intimately familiar with the unique challenges of your industry.
Now some folks may find it strange, seeing that I have a social media training product on the market, that I would recommend what cold be seen as a competing product. And normally I’d agree with them.
However in this case I can make an exception.
For starters I’ve know the founders of Tourism Currents, Becky McCray and Sheila Scarborough both for years now. Not only did I meet them at the first SOBCon, a conference I helped found back in 2008. But even beyond meeting them in person, I was on a mastermind call with both of them for the better part of a year.
So I can say with full confidence that they know their stuff when it comes to blogging and social media.
Different people resonate with different personalities. As much as I hate to admit it, there is a possibility that there might be some folks out there who don’t resonate with my personality. (Shocking, I know!)
There is no reason why that should keep someone from learning how to tap into social media for their business.
Because there is plenty of business to go around. For all of us.
I believe there is something to be said for niche specialties too. While the basic principles and best practices of social media marketing hold true no matter what market you are in, having someone who is familiar with the ins and outs of your business can sometimes be a big help.
Becky & Sheila are very knowledgeable in the travel and tourism industry. Becky is a longtime entrepreneur with four businesses currently who has been working with small city governments on project planning and grant writing. Sheila has been a freelance writer, both in print media and on the web, specializing in the travel and tourism industry.
Social Media for the Travel and Tourism Industry
The bottom line is, whether you work for a chamber of commerce, a convention and visitors bureau, work in hospitality or the restaurant? business, these two ladies at Tourism Currents are perfectly positioned to help you tap into social media and attract more people to your business (and to your community.)
