With so much opportunity for adventure tourism, due to the loosening of COVID-19 restrictions, it’s important to look at ways business operators can capture the attention of new prospects and convert them into customers.

In this blog, we take a look at a few of the top adventure marketing solutions that can help generate more bookings. 

1 - A photo sharing and marketing platform that uses memories to enhance outdoor adventure marketing strategy

All too often, at Fotaflo, we find that adventure marketing strategies don’t optimize the power of customer photos. That’s because businesses are instead trying to sell photos to their customers. 

The problem is, not only is selling photos expensive and time consuming for your business, it prevents adventure tourism brands from accessing the benefits of photo marketing.

That’s why a photo sharing and marketing platform is a critical adventure marketing solution that operators need to use. By providing photos to customers for free through a photo sharing and marketing platform, adventure businesses can benefit in the following ways.

  • Enhance the guest experience and gain a competitive edge over other brands in their space.
  • Gain referral leads by encouraging past customers to share their photo memories across their social media channels.
  • Increase the quantity and quality of online reviews.
  • Identify and engage their top advocates.
  • Build a successful remarketing strategy that encourages past customers to rebook again with their business.
