Hi, HeidiTown markets #Colorado festivals & travel. I can't choose a FAVORITE fest although @Biergartenfest is pretty good. #TourismChat
#tourismchat @tourismchat
Don't forget to use the #tourismchat hashtag in each tweet. Dashboards & tools like @TweetChat & @Nurph can help.

I'm participating in #TourismChat so if you see a steady stream of tweets from me for the next hour - that's why!

Here's Q1 - How can you promote a festival/special event BEFORE it happens? Online & off options? #tourismchat
Heidi Kerr-Schlaefer @HeidiTown
Keep the fest's FB pg active yr round so that you don't have 2 rebuild your audience every year. Keep your fest top of mind. A1 #tourismchat
#tourismchat @tourismchat
When tweeting responses use A1, A2, A3 for Q1, Q2, Q3, etc. That way we know which Q your A is for. :) #tourismchat
LauraBeth Strickland @lblyons
A1: Before our festival we place traditional and social media advertising as well as attend local TV stations' morning shows #tourismchat

#tourismchat @tourismchat
@stboyer Can you explain microsites to ppl who might not be familiar with them? Thx! #tourismchat
Tom Boyer @stboyer
@tourismchat #tourismchat Sure. Our web vendor allows us to make small sites within our site with separate nav. Works great for low $
