3 INTRODUCTION The following plan outlines our approach to deliver on SLO TBID s Strategic Clarity goals for Following a successful and accomplished , BCA & StudioGood are primed to capitalize on our discoveries about what works, what doesn t, and what s next. Before we dive into our plan, take a look at a snapshot of the past year s progress. SNAPSHOT OF Rebranded San Luis Obispo Vacations & ShareSLO Restructured ShareSLO.com and refreshed SanLuisObispoVacations.com Developed new print & digital advertising campaign Re-launched ShareSLO campaign with new approach Redesigned and re-launched San Luis Obispo Vacations E-Newsletter Coordinated strategic partner outreach, management, and fulfillments Attended 3 tradeshows & Celebration Weekend Implemented SEO recommendations Managed social media paid advertising campaigns Participated in events to increase brand awareness Designed and produced new swag, including sunglasses, t-shirts and Savor bags Increased TOT each month Identified and managed team of ShareSLO Influencers Developed new social strategy and handled daily community management of ShareSLO social channels NEW OPPORTUNITIES FOR Integrated, responsive San Luis Obispo Vacations website Unique collateral New videography & photography Research new tradeshow possibilities Integrated PR effort with Chamber 3 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

5 OUR APPROACH We ve spent the past year learning the ins and outs of marketing the City of San Luis Obispo. We ve celebrated our successes and what has worked, and noted the areas for improvement and new opportunities. Moving into the fiscal year, we are using our experience, the goals outlined in the Strategic Clarity Plan (specifically, delivering smart growth, developing the SLO brand and contributing to an unforgettable SLO experience) and research on the leading industry trends to shape our plan for the year. Our approach includes Simplifying the SLO TBID digital experience Leveraging video, the must-have asset of 2015 Enhancing our social media presence based on current trends, more organic content Coordinating with strategic partners to maximize everyone s marketing efforts Making SLO TBID mobile friendly Exploring external markets not previously targeted Evaluating the ROI of events and tradeshows 5 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

6 DIGITAL Currently, the digital landscape for the SLO TBID consists of three websites: SanLuisObispoVacations. com, ShareSLO.com, and m.sanluisobispovacations.com. With three websites, the brand messaging is fragmented and less effective. In addition, the mobile experience leaves users wanting more information, but unable to access it. On April 21st, 2015 Google released its latest update that negatively affects search rankings for sites that are not mobile friendly. To top things off, research shows that the number of individuals using their mobile device to do travel research will increase from 55% to 62% from 2015 to Given this information and the mobile experience metrics presented throughout the year, addressing mobile is the top priority of In alignment with the Strategic Clarity Plan, we also want to continue to strengthen and develop the digital presence of the SLO Brand. The best way to do this and address the mobile issue is by simplifying the digital presence of the brand consolidating the three websites into a single, fully-responsive website. WITH A SINGLE, COHESIVE WEBSITE WE Unify branding and messaging Optimize for search from the ground up Build it mobile from day 1 Integrate social sharing throughout Enhance design and user experience based on modern web design Develop a custom dashboard for content updates Create a cohesive content strategy Amplify the ShareSLO campaign 6 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

7 SOCIAL To avoid boring our fans, we will continue to provide them with new, engaging content, while maintaining the voice, tone, look and feel of the campaign that we developed in Our content plan will continue to include links, and photos, but will place a large emphasis on video. Whenever possible, we will include video content on social media. Whether that is our own video or user generated video content. OUR PLAN IS TO Move away from excessively-branded imagery. Using other destinations as an example, we want the photos we use to be more organic in appearance, keeping the bright and cheery look established this year. Revise the content strategy to include - More unique SLO features and fun facts Capture the SLO Life Real-time posting of organic, in-the-moment content Photo and video contests to entice fans Guest posting by local and external Influencers Enhance YouTube presence Increase frequency of posting on Twitter & Instagram Explore additional platforms such as Snapchat to capture a new audience Increase real-time engagement with visitors by commenting, liking and sharing their posts Incorporate more social media campaigns throughout the year 7 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

8 #SHARESLO We kicked off the restructured ShareSLO Influencer program in September of Since then, people have been sharing and using the hashtag daily. Our Influencers have helped us spread campaign awareness by attending events and sharing their experiences through social media and the blog. Now that we have created buzz around the campaign, we want to move away from focusing heavily on events to promote ShareSLO, instead emphasizing attractions and activities that visitors can find in SLO all year long. We will continue to provide event tickets to Influencers as we receive them and encourage them to continue to ShareSLO, but there will be no formal group of Influencers. HERE IS HOW WE SEE SHARESLO EVOLVING IN Feature blog content from locals, industry experts and external Influencers. Per our digital strategy, the blog will be included on the single SLO TBID website Utilize SEO research to forecast and plan blog content based on search trends Coordinate with the San Luis Obispo Chamber of Commerce to identify and host Influencers from external, target markets This strategy would include - Using SEO research, find Influencers with domain authority in external markets Through Chamber outreach, invite them to experience SLO. Possibly pair them with local with similar interests to show them around SLO Require them to share their experience through their own blog/website, social media channels and the ShareSLO blog 8 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

9 PAID MEDIA Paid media efforts in were very successful. We monitored and reported the highest impressions and click thru rates, and will shift media buys accordingly in to maximize performance. We ve seen very healthy interest and results from our geo-targets. We see value in continuing the push in LA, San Francisco, San Jose and also in expanding and testing a few more geographical areas, such as San Diego, Palm Springs and Phoenix. SEO and SEM continue to be key to our efforts to increase qualified, organic traffic to the website. Mobile rules! Industry standard shows 60% of travelers are using mobile devices to shop, book and navigate trips. Invest large portion of media spend in mobile advertising. 9 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

10 STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIPS SLO TBID s strategic partnerships allow the marketing agencies to build relationships with the organizations below, elevating the destination as a whole. Promotional opportunities with each organization gives SLOTBID new platforms and audiences to build brand awareness. Chamber Partner with the Chamber to manage external Influencer strategy Leverage Chamber media FAMs, tradeshows, and earned media mentions Cal Poly Plan additional events surrounding presenting sponsors games Work with Cal Poly to increase San Luis Obispo Vacations presence on their websites Expanded partnership opportunities with other university departments including Cal Poly alumni, parents CCTC Leverage new co-op opportunities, i.e. Canada outreach Increase monthly blog content by adding SLO TBID-sponsored event promotions Coordinate with rep to keep events listing up to date Downtown Association Partner with the Downtown Association to provide #ShareSLO collateral for downtown businesses Consider business partnerships as part of #ShareSLO external Influencer strategy SLO Wine Specify presence on SLO Wine website based on domain rankings Update site banner ads to reflect upcoming SLO TBID-sponsored events & promotions Continue to provide monthly content for SLO Wine e-newsletter Promote SLO Wine events in accordance with SLO TBID s event strategy guidelines (see addendum) SLO Airport Identify opportunities for ad placements Add a link to San Luis Obispo Vacations on the airport website Visit SLO County Include more SLO specific content on the site Visit California Ongoing coordination to keep SLO specific content up-to-date and relevant 10 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

11 EVENTS In , your marketing agencies attended, promoted, or organized Influencer attendance to more than a dozen events of different shapes and sizes. With our new insight, we ve developed an event strategy (see addendum C) to ensure all SLO TBID-sponsored events are well-aligned with the SLO TBID/ ShareSLO brand and expectations and best practices are clear. These new guidelines will allow us to reach visitors before, during, and after an event takes place, which in turn arms us with the tools we need to leverage events to put heads in beds. Provide TBID with strategy for brand presence at events (see SLO TBID Event Strategy addendum C) 11 Receive goals and outcomes from all SLO TBID-sponsored events Continue to support TBID in growth of sponsored events Continue to research potential new events that SLO could host Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.

12 SWAG Create unique and desirable giveaways Create specific collateral for events and tradeshows for maximum exposure and visitor engagement Grassroots efforts to get the brand integrated into the City of SLO Window clings Flags Hotel pieces Table tents TRADESHOWS Take an objective look at the value of currently attended tradeshows and make decisions based on prior year s attendance, specific numbers, demographics and quality of audience.

13 CONCLUSION BCA and StudioGood will update the SLO TBID Marketing Plan each fiscal year. We feel that it is imperative to acknowledge trends, be observant of growth or decline and make changes according to the current tourism climate on an ongoing basis. The SLO TBID Marketing Plan coupled with the SLO TBID Strategic Clarity Plan provides a foundation for building the City of SLO brand and establishing real tactics for consistently improving tourism in the City of San Luis Obispo. 13 Copyright Barnett Cox & Associates.
