Two years removed from a major social media fail, Sunshine Village really gets it. With 51,000 Facebook fans, 15,000 Twitter fans, 302,143 YouTube views, and 1,500 Google+ followers, Sunshine is doing a lot right. Any social media channel they are on, they optimize and use it to the fullest. And in all instances, Sunshine shows off its snow with rulers and familiar or funny objects.
There is a large core of dedicated skiers and snowboarders aged 18-34 that use social media daily. This audience relies heavily on social media content and opinions from friends and brands to help decide their ski holiday destinations. We saw this audience gave us the best opportunity to enhance awareness and engagement.
The resort now is among the leaders for both social engagement and growth—that’s quite a turnaround.
Sunshine got clobbered on Facebook in 2011, so it was heartening to see it learned its lesson well. Sunshine’s “Ski the day before we open” Twitter draw could only be won through participation, and as a result it had a very strong viral component. From moments after the launch until the drawing of the 20 winners’ names, Sunshine was trending in Alberta on Twitter. Sunshine used the promotion to tout the Sunshine-Marmot discount cards, and invited media to join the winners. The end result was a huge jump in Twitter followers, 500 entries, a seven percent increase in Twitter followers and Facebook fans, a great news story for the media pre-season, and 20 advocates who had a fabulous first day. The resort now is among the leaders for both social engagement and growth—that’s quite a turnaround.—M.R.
BANFF, ALBERTA, May 01 (MARKET WIRE) -- Editor's Note: There is a photo associated with this release.
Sunshine Village Ski & Snowboard Resort in the Canadian Rockies has been handed another prestigious award, this time from Ski Area Management Magazine. Sunshine Village won the Best Use of Twitter, and particular accolades were given for this season's new Ski the Day Before We Open Sweepstakes, which had Sunshine trending in Alberta on Twitter.
Facebook latest redesign for brands provides ski resorts with a lot bigger space to showcase their resort in the timeline cover. Some good uses of the timeline cover include: snow reports uploaded daily, upcoming events, focus on night life or show village activities. I see a lot of creativity from ski resorts and some really cool images are popping up on Facebook.
Below are my favs and an example of what not to do.
The best use of the Facebook timeline image in the ski industry comes from Sunshine Village Ski&Snowboard Resort from Banff (Alberta) Canada. Each day they feature a new image of a fan on their Timeline under the clever name Sunshiner of the Day.
Shawn Alain puts GoWowMedia on hold for 18 months. His goal right from the start was to create a social media agency, and although there are many similarities his decade long experience in the publishing industry gives him when it comes to social media, he wanted some real hands on experience. Sunshine Village had just suffered a major social media crisis that made international news. They had a good product, but a poor online reputation. They had a small but hostile social media presence. Shawn accepted a position of Social Media Specialist for a term of 18 months. In that time he guided them out of the crisis and won the four major social media awards including: - Slopefillers Award December 2011: Best ski resort twitter campaign - Ski Area Management Magazine May 2012: Best Use of Twitter Award - Travel Alberta November 2012: Marketing Excellence over $25,000 - Travel Alberta Alto Awards - Ski Area Management (SAM) Magazine May 2013: SAM Award for Best All-Around Social Media Execution
In 2010 current owner of Viral In Nature, Shawn Alain, leaves The Valley Sentinel but continues to manage the marketing for a few clients under the name GoWowMedia. This also includes publishing the Official Peachland Visitor Guide for the Chamber of Commerce. However, Shawn's sole focus is now on creating a social media agency.
