BTB's New Local Tourism Blog & Online Social Networking
The internet has become a valuable tool in marketing Belize as a premier destination through websites, emails, and the use of popular social networking sites and activities.
One important and most useful internet component has become Social Networking and Blog Sites. To bring Belize across to potential visitors, the Belize Tourism Board has established an active presence online and invites local tourism stakeholders to follow online, become fans, and partner with the BTB to share the experiences, adventures, and information on BTB's activities.
Other online tools include:
On FACEBOOK.com the BTB's "Belize Vacation" invites visitors to become a fan and to keep current on interesting events in Belize, special travel offers; highlights of destinations and attractions in the country as well as trade shows.
BTB's TWITTER.com's voice "Belize Vacation" provides similar information in 140 word bursts that can be picked up by followers of the BTB as well as anyone who is monitoring a Twitter search for "Belize"
For local tourism stakeholders, monthly tourism activity updates and weekly mailers from the BTB are now being supplemented by a blog which posts news on BTB's activities as they occur, including updates from BTB personnel at international trade shows.
