Each month, the PBM Tourism Marketing Program newsletter is distributed as follows:
- E-Mail Marketing Campaign - this newsletter is distributed to our LGBT e-mail list of over 175,000 recipients. All are double opt-in and have signed up specifically to receive these LGBT newsletters.
- Social Media Campaign - the cornerstone of marketing initiatives we have been developing for the past 5 years. This newsletter will be distributed on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and more. We will be targeting LGBT travel groups and fan pages, as well as key influencers in the LGBT travel community as identified by Klout.com, with each campaign reaching approximately 500,000 viewers in one month.
One of the keys to success in our PBM Tourism Marketing Program marketing program is the "content creation/story to tell" aspect of this campaign, as it is a cornerstone of a successful online marketing campaign, combining some of the traditional aspects of marketing and PR and merging them with some of the latest online marketing techniques found today, both on community-based websites and social media.
- Search Engine Results - as Google and Bing integrate more and more social media trends into their search results, the PBM Tourism Marketing Program marketing program becomes even more important, putting your company up front and center in search results influenced by Facebook, Twitter and Google Plus. In addition, the newsletter and subsequent blog that form the two cornerstones of this marketing program are optimized for search and integrated into websites with strong search engine ranking, ensuring your message is seen by anyone searching for your company's LGBT opportunities.
In addition, this PBM Tourism Marketing Program page will remain online for a minimum of 1 year, guaranteeing that your message and outreach campaign delivers for full 365-degree marketing experience.
- LGBT Travel Community Websites - In addition to GayMonde.com, this marketing program's content will be featured on the entire Pink Banana Media network of LGBT websites, including PinkBananaWorld.com, GayMonde.com, GayRelevant.com and more. It will also be featured on some of our partner LGBT websites as well, including Navigaytour.com, SouthFloridaFun.com, GayWhistler.com and more, with a total reach of more than 200,000 unique visitors per month.
- Mobile optimization - this newsletter and marketing program will also be mobile-optimized so that if anyone is viewing from a smartphone or similar device, they will view a version that not only fits their screen, but is also easy to navigate by touch and links directly to your mobile-optimized pages as well. The technology we use converts the newsletter to a "web app", which can be easily viewed on an iPhone, iPad, Android phone, Windows 7/8 phones and Blackberry, just to name a few.
When we do mobile optimization, we also make a secondary web app layout for tablets, which include Samsung Galaxy (Android) and iPad. Tablets are a hot growth market right now so including them in this marketing plan and strategy at this time is of a high priority.
- Monitoring of Conversations - we will be setting up for each featured destination a daily monitoring of any and all conversations that are going on based on selected search terms, such as "gay California travel" for example, as well as other more specific search terms, including our marketing program partners' names. This monitoring will take place using Google Alerts, as well as a Twitter monitoring service, from which we would "retweet" any and all conversations that were relevant to bringing more awareness to our featured business partners and driving qualified traffic to this marketing program.
- Location-Aware Social Media - we will be posting "tips" and other shout-outs that take advantage of the new technologies introduced by FourSquare.com, Facebook Places, Gowalla, SCVNGR and more. All of these merge the real world of business and places with the social media world, and have become quite popular in the past year.
In the LGBT Travel World, location-aware social media can be closely integrated with sites such as GayCities.com, offering additional event and destination exposure through the activities of LGBT users of these services who are sharing their activities online.
