Quadra Island Tourism - Social Media Campaigns

If you're reading this online chances are pretty good that you are also active on social media and almost certainly social media is a part of your business promotion and customer engagement strategy. Quadra Island Tourism maintains a presence on several key platforms and encourages our community and local businesses to support one another in enhancing our collective social media profile.

If you are not familiar with Quadra Island Tourism's social media profiles we encourage you to take some time to visit our pages and see what sorts of posts and content works well in illiciting engagement.

Our main public profiles are: Facebook> | Twitter>| Instagram> | YouTube>

Quadra Island Tourism also has a closed FaceBook group for local tourism professionals, business owners etc... to discuss tourism related matters. Find and join the group here>

Instagram Campaigns

In 2016 we will initiate two (potentially long-term) parallel social media campaigns to engage our visitors and help foster a sense of connection with the Quadra Island community. Both will focus on Instagram with supporting presence on FaceBook and Twitter.

#myquadraisland - encourages locals, visitors and anyone with an interest or connection to Quadra to share their photographs & videos with accompanying captions/stories with the hashtag #myquadraisland. Additional hashtags circulating and encouraged include: #myquadra, #quadraisland, #quadrarocks

It's important to link our local campaign with other Instagram accounts & hashtags, some we've identified as being valuable to associate with include: #explorebc, #pnwlife, #sharethecoast, #vancouverisland, #explorecanada, #ilovebc

To see this campaign in action click here>

#peopleofquadra - a photographic portrayal of Quadra Islanders engaged in their jobs, community work or other situation they're known for. This campaign will be actively moved forward on Instagram with contributions linked by #peopleofquadra

Stay tuned for more information on these campaigns and if you have ideas for improving them, contributing etc... please get in touch and participate in upcoming round-tables.
