It’s time to start planning for video if you haven’t already! Let’s get serious about video in 2018, and aim to create at least one video per month.

If you have never had a video strategy, here are some ideas to get you started:

  • A general welcome video to your destination
  • Unique dishes within your destination
  • A video on outdoor recreation for each season
  • Video with directions to hidden gems
