Why a CVB should be on Twitter

In 60 seconds, Beth Conway from the St. Joseph, Missouri CVB@StJoMo on Twitter – explains why Twitter is NOT about what she had for lunch….

(Here’s the direct link to Beth’s video on YouTube, and here’s the Tourism Currents YouTube channel.)

Thanks Signalfire for featuring the video in their blog post about why social media works for CVBs and DMOs….this demonstrates why you should allow your CVB videos to be embedded on other people’s sites; it helps spread them to a wider audience.

When you make a video, always include a URL in the title or credits, so that those who see the video out on the web can find the rest of your work if they’re interested.

    Great video – nice to see you, Beth 🙂 For anyone still not convinced, please, go and do some searching over at http://search.twitter.com. I think you may be shocked at what you find people saying about your region/destination.

    Hard to believe there are still dmos that don’t use Twitter and other social media. Thanks for the tip on including a video link – never thought of that, duh.

    Hi Andy, That’s exactly right; sometimes the only way to convince people is to show them what’s already being discussed (with or without them) and if that doesn’t work, show ’em what their competitors are doing.

    Thanks, Lara, I’d almost published the post when I decided to throw that tip in there, just in case someone might find it helpful. Voilà!
