Build a tourism brand that stands out so you get more customers, faster than you thought possible.

Do you often find yourself fumbling your way through marketing, driven by fear of missing out you try to do everything, which results in nothing being done well?

Not knowing what is truly right for your business, all this effort is put in for very little result. Simply because no one showed you a better way.

I work with tourism brands like yours to make them look and sound like an absolute must-do.

The shot above was taken on a photo shoot above the spectacular, Dundee Beach, NT.

So, before you waste time, money and resources on the doing you have the clarity you need to focus your efforts and finally get results.

More bookings, more enquiries, more tours; whatever ‘results’ look like to your tourism business.

Don’t you want to finally get off the marketing hamster wheel and make your biggest problem working on creating an amazing product or experience your customers will rave about?

It’s time to build a tourism brand people love, pay more for and rave about.

We recently ran a Google Ad campaign for a tour company, that averaged less than 50c per click thorough.

Working with hundreds of tourism brands over the past ten years, and more recently extensively travelling Australia, has provided a unique opportunity to see exactly what the best tourism brands do to become a must-do in their region.

Working closely with less than a handful of tourism businesses at a time. Together we improve your brand, how you talk about yourself (messaging), the look and feel of your website, update your photos in line with the brand you want to build, and capture compelling video content to support the story you’re telling. Or some mix of these things.

Results like this happen when you nail your brand, messaging and offer. Only then can you do less marketing and still get a better result.

If you’ve worked with marketers or web developers before, and you were, well… let’s just say, underwhelmed.

Not this time. This time you’ll leave feeling confident you understand your brand, your marketing, and that you’re in command of an exceptionally high quality (looking and sounding) tourism business.

You’ll leave finally feeling things are actually different.

You’ll leave looking and sounding like an absolute must-do experience in your region. Your biggest challenge will be to delight every new customer that walks in and delivering on your new brand promise.

Always. Capturing. Content! This time, in Alice Springs, Central Australia.

When you nail your brand strategy and messaging, the customer feels something. You stand out and people are compelled to act.

He’re an example from a great business I worked with a business in Central Australia. A remote business that relies on being a destination within themselves.

To do this they need to sell a story that attracts visitors that might otherwise miss them altogether or choose somewhere else.

We created a brand strategy to lead decision making in the business. We developed marketing messaging that leans into their new brand strategy AND their website now makes them look like an absolute must-do.

Now, they look and sound amazing (they always were, they just needed to communicate that better).

They appeal greatly to a specific type of customer. They’re finally communicating just how good they are, in a way that attracts more of the right type of customer.

 

 

Must-Do Tourism Brands, Sound Very Good

Almost nothing… nothing at all, sells without words.

The words you use to describe what you do, differentiate you, attract your ideal customer, raise your value, and sell what you do; all at once.

Sounding like every other brand in your segment does nothing to achieve any one of those things.

Using language which leans into your brand personality while also speaking to the wants and aspirations of your ideal customer is critical to look like a must-do tourism brand.

After all, you’re not a must-do tourism brand, until someone decides you’re a must-do. Convince them, through words.

We’re talking copy. Marketing messages. Understanding your customer’s problems, needs and wants, and being able to describe them back to them better than they could.

Take the pain out of copywriting and attract more of your ideal customers. Book a conversation to find out what the process would look like to get a framework for your marketing message, so you sound like a must-do tourism brand too.

Must-Do Tourism Brands, Look Very Good

Nothing inspires action quite like imagery.

Whether you’re travelling the country, visiting a destination for the first time, or even if you’re a local, nothing compels as imagery does.

You can’t look like a must-do tourism brand if you don’t look like a must-do tourism brand.

About seven years ago I saw an opportunity to help clients look better, through quality imagery that showcases their personality and brand. That’s when I picked up a serious camera for the first time.

I was with clients all the time. It was hard to know when or who to call on to help with photography and even harder for video. So I learnt to do it myself.

Wind the clock forward those seven years and I’ve got a massive portfolio of images and videos after working with hundreds of tourism brands, right around the country.

From underwater videography of dolphins to creating a safety video for a ferry operator, I’ve shot so much content. Communicating a brand’s story through video and photos has become one of my favourite parts of my job.

Nothing makes a tourism brand look like a must-do quite like imagery can.

This shot was taken as part of a broad-scale content grab in Queenscliff, Victoria, where I photographed lots of businesses and the destination in general. The images that were taken were all made available as an image library for the businesses involved.

Working closely with Tourism Greater Geelong Bellarine over a number of years saw me capture many planned and unplanned moments for them. A partnership that produced much quality content for the region.

My daughter standing in front of one of my favourite shots I’ve ever taken. This was a candid moment (my family) which I caught in Central Geelong, Victoria. Images from this set have been used on a magazine cover, small billboards, and social media for the region. Not bad for an unplanned shoot!

Ultimately, building an online presence that generates a rapid and significant increase in enquiries and bookings, requires alignment of your brand, marketing and offers. But if you want to start with something small so you see real results that build your confidence to do more, let’s do that.

Knowing what must-do tourism brands look and sound like, isn’t just theory to me.

Not only have I worked in tourism marketing for nearly a decade, I’ve also travelled throughout Australia experiencing how the best do it.

For two years from 2020-2022, I travelled Australia with my family. Experiencing everything from the culturally rich Northern Territory, to the glamour of the Gold Coast and the amazing marine environments that is the Western Australian coast.

After leaving Victoria and two years on the road we settled again in the Clare Valley, South Australia. A new place to call home.

During our time on the road, I had a unique opportunity to interact with and assess an enormous number of destinations and tourism operators from the perspective of a visitor and tourism marketer.

Learning what actually makes them look and sound like a must-do, so I can replicate what I’ve learned for my clients.

What makes a tourism brand look and sound amazing isn’t just theory to me. I’ve lived the visitor experience and worked with operators right across the country, in a huge variety of destinations, geographies, and visitor economies.

This is the first step to look and sound like an absolute must-do and rapidly increase enquiries and bookings.

An Absolute Must-Do, the Book.

A concise framework to build a tourism business that people love, pay more for, and rave about.

I wrote An Absolute Must-Do to help small tourism businesses do MUCH better marketing without the need for help. Even if they don’t have any experience at all.

The book presents a framework anyone tourism business can follow, to achieve brand clarity and build a remarkable tourism business.

Most advice, training, and help tourism businesses receive focuses on tactics (the ‘doing’).

This book shows how starting with tactics is a flawed approach, and demonstrates how starting on strategy instead will provide the direction, clarity and differentiation tourism businesses need to stand out and become An Absolute Must-Do in their region.
