LGBTQ Tourism Marketing Summary 2019
This summer, we've had the opportunity to work on some incredible LGBTQ tourism-focused campaigns, utilizing the full range of our capabilities, from hyper-targeting LGBTQ travelers living in specific parts of the world and wishing to travel to our client's destinations, to influencer and #ILoveGay marketing programs, leveraging strong content and the power of social media to spread our client's messages far and wide while still targeting LGBTQ travelers.
Starting with Seattle, we launched an #ILoveGay network campaign that helped keep key Seattle LGBTQ and LGBTQ-friendly businesses front and center with LGBTQ travelers to Seattle. We utilized their content, which included features of openly gay staff such as Executive Chef Derek of the Thompson Hotel. We were able to leverage these staff's following on social media to help amplify this campaign message even more.
We had the pleasure of working the Spain Tourism again this year, with an emphasis on content marketing and social media outreach. We monitored the Internet for articles, videos and blog posts with an LGBTQ angle to them. We also monitored social media, ensuring Spain Tourism was part of these LGBTQ social media conversations as well, including them with @VisitGaySpain, @ILoveGaySpain, @ILoveGayMadrid and @ILoveGayBCN, @ILoveLGBTTravel and more.
Lastly, we had the incredible opportunity to work with the team at VACAYA and their inaugural LGBTQ cruise out of New York, with stops in Canada, Maine and Provincetown! Our main focus was in vetting and putting a team of LGBTQ travel influencers together for this cruise, whereby this group was able to promote the cruise before, during and after the cruise, with the "after" part geared towards promoting upcoming VACAYA cruises in 2020 and beyond.
To get a sense of the content these influencers created, as well as how their social media performed, take a look at the video below. The campaign garnered several million LGBTQ social media impressions, as well as hundreds of thousands of video views and an engagement rate on some social media platforms as high as 20%!
