Marketing your challenge course or zip tour || Live Q & A session

by Julia Barrero

Your marketing questions answered

There are some great online marketing resources out there for tour operators (like this one *cough* *cough*), but nothing beats an in-person explanation.

When you have one-on-one time with a marketer that can listen to your unique circumstance, understand it (this step gets surprisingly overlooked sometimes), and offer actionable advice, you leave with a confidence you can’t always get online.

The problem, of course, this consultative work usually costs money–and often more than your marketing budget can absorb.

But you’re in luck: for 60 minutes, I’ll be answering any of your zip line and challenge course marketing questions alongside Mandy Stewart and Ed Caplan, two of my colleagues from the Association for Challenge Course Technology (ACCT).

Did I mention it’s free?

What to expect

If free marketing advice isn’t already worth an hour of your Tuesday evening, let me give you a few more reasons why you should join us on November 10th.

1. The hosts

Between them, Ed Caplan and Mandy Stewart have decades of experience in outdoor education and facilitation. They both serve on ACCT’s PR and Marketing Committee where they combine their expertise in the challenge course industry with digital know-how.

Good things happen when you bring smart hosts together for a conversation, but even better things happen when even more smart viewers spur the discussion further. That’s what exactly what all the veteran members of ACCT bring to the table. Get ready to explore numerous perspectives to every topic as “guest hosts” from the audience jump in with Mandy, Ed, and myself.

3. The topic

When it comes to marketing, we’re jacks-of-all-trades. From web design, to video marketing, to digital advertising, and more, give us your challenges. Your hosts will start the conversation off with a popular marketing topic and then open it up after just a few minutes to your inquiries. Your interests will shape the remainder of the discussion.
