Destination Marketing Campaigns
Our co-founder, Muthuri Kinyamu led the Great Migration Social Media Takeover campaign on behalf of Kenya Tourism Board in 2016. We have also worked with counties like Turkana County to position, promote and package the destination to attract tourists, investors and change perceptions. By leveraging the power of social media, stunning visuals and influencers, we deliver great campaigns to counties, regional associations and properties seeking a bigger piece of the pie.
Through our popular Instagram tours, we’ve built strong relationships with some of the best talent in the industry. They’re the top influencers, producers, and more so we can help you take care of all of the hard stuff required to make great content and execute successful campaigns at affordable rates.
We seek to collaborate with you in marketing your tourism product by creating content that will give you an edge in this fiercely competitive industry. The modern-day traveller has a wide range of tools to use in choosing their next destination, among them unfettered access to social media. Through social media and our ecosystem of content creators, we develop content such as blog posts, trending campaigns, HD photos and professional videos to appeal to this new age of consumers for whom traditional marketing methods just don’t make the cut anymore.

By 2017, online video accounted for 74% of all online traffic (KPCB).
A Nielsen global online study found that they continue to be most willing to pay extra for sustainable offerings—who are willing to pay more for products and services that come from companies who are committed to positive social and environmental impact.
