Special Covid Tourism Recovery Program for NYSTIA Members: $600 net/participant
This program will create a centralized NYS destination content portal acting similar to a “virtual travel show" with dedicated travel guide and destination microsites pages for each of the participating NYSTIA destinations hosted on www.travelguidesfree.com. Participants will receive validated active traveler leads, weekly lead reports, opt-in requests to build their email lists and generate traffic to their website.
NYSTIA will create a portal page on the NYSTIA site linking directly to the special NYS destination section on www.travelguidesfree.com, and all partners and participants will promote the special section.
These pages will provide travelers with more content, images, and insights on what they can find and experience, and inspire their decision to visit. Travelers can request digital and/or print guides of interest and click out to the specific tourism website to find even more information. The result is increased awareness and engagement of travelers and influencing their inspiration and planning to a decision to come visit.
"Working with the team executing the Travel Guide Program was a wonderful experience. Directions were easy to understand, questions were answered quickly and the best part we already received quality leads and feedback. This program just goes to show how well NYSTIA and their partners adapt to the changing marketing and tourism landscape.
If this was an online rating of the program I'd give it 5 out of 5 stars!"
