TOUR OPERATOR FINDS CREATIVE NEW WAY TO UTILIZE ONLINE MARKETING

POSTED BY JAMES MELCER

 

Harlem is one of New York’s most popular neighborhoods for worldwide accommodations leader Airbnb, and one creative local tour operator has found a way to turn this into a major marketing opportunity for her business.

I Bike Harlem founder, Maxine Daniels, describes exactly how she is marketing her business through Airbnb below...

"Airbnb sends out a monthly newsletter to their network of hosts in the neighborhood and they always include I Bike Harlem in their newsletter, asking hosts to make sure they invite their guests to take tours with us and they also do social media posts promoting us."

Talk about smart marketing!  Way to go Maxine!  As the tour and activity industry continues to evolve smart and creative online marketing, like what Maxine has done, is helping companies get an edge over their competition.
