REACH TARGET AUDIENCES
Travel Salem offers many different ways to reach your target audience. You can have a listing on our website, post an event, advertise on our various platforms, and be included in our Visitors Guide or Visitors Information Network.
We are also proud to announce our new Referral Program, which is a way for Members to support each other and encourage visitors to stay longer and explore other Member businesses. Travel Salem will provide you with a business card and one-page flyer to distribute to visitors, which will include additional attractions and businesses they may want to visit. Interested in providing a discount or an incentive for visitors? You can offer that through this program, too! Registration for the program is included with Membership at no additional cost. Contact us for more information and to sign up!
Travel Salem is also here to help your business succeed. We host monthly educational and networking events where you can learn from experts, get industry updates, and meet new people who can help you thrive. You can see the list of upcoming events here: (Save the Date Document)
We also offer a wide range of tools to assist you. You can access our Marketing Toolkit, which will provide practical tools and resources to make sure you're getting the most out of your marketing efforts, ask for a review of your marketing or public relations plan, or receive help with your event.
