Digital Promotion Opportunity on VisitCapeBreton.com
Destination Cape Breton invites you to participate in our new digital marketing initiative – Enhanced Featured Listings. The initiative will provide an enhanced online presence for businesses to showcase their package, experience and/or event to a wider audience via VisitCapeBreton.com and our social media channels.
As pictured above, a slider deck of displayed listings will be top-of-page and randomized across a selection of landing pages on VisitCapeBreton.com – homepage, things to do, places to go, accommodations, trip ideas and events. Each displayed listing will include a photo, title and a brief description related to the experience, package and/or event and the option to click through for more information. A user can click through to more information which will be hosted on a new listing that will highlight a photo, title, description and all operator’s contact information (website, social, phone number, etc.).
In addition to the top-of-page slider deck, your main business listing will also be sorted as a featured listing, which gives priority over our alphabetical sorting in respective category and sub-categories.
Each business participating will also receive a featured post on our social media channels.
In 2022, our website sessions hit a new record, eclipsing 1.43 million, a 32% increase over 2021. Our social media reach extends upwards of 160,000 followers.
The fee to participate is an introductory investment of $300 plus HST and the deadline to register is Friday, April 22, 2023.
Sustainability in 2023
As mentioned in our 2023-24 Strategy, one of our goals is “To make substantial strides in becoming a sustainable and inclusive destination.” As the world becomes more aware of the impact of tourism on the environment, there has been an increasing push towards more sustainable tourism practices. As a result, we have made the decision to move away from mass print material distribution. We are taking components of our beloved Experience Guide and moving it into Enhanced Featured Listings.
