August 2021 SD Missouri River Tourism Report
Time To Plan for 2022!
Reports coming into our office indicate that everyone is busy with tourists. Here at the Oahe Visitor Center that is very true! We are busier than we have ever been! And all of that is good! So, it’s hard to believe that it’s time to start planning for 2022! It will be here before we know it and you won’t want to miss out on opportunities for marketing your business or community.
At SD Missouri River Tourism we are getting ready to send out our dues invoices and advertising opportunities for the upcoming year. The good news? We are not increasing the dues rates. And there are a couple specials on the advertising side that you might want to take advantage of.
It’s tough to decide what a business or community should do for marketing - but the one thing that should stay constant is continuing your marketing! We are here to help you with that! We are planning our sports/vacation shows for 2022. All indications are that shows will be extremely busy this coming year. We also plan on doing additional social media marketing to get the word out for our members and advertisers. As partners we can make our money go farther and reach the people we know are interested in the river area. Our marketing outreach includes MN, IA, WI, NE, MO, ND and SD. Statistics show that these target markets are where the largest majority of our visitors come from.
If you are interested in being part of SD Missouri River Tourism marketing, please contact us for membership and advertising opportunities. Call the office at 605-224-4617 for information.
In the meantime – as busy as everyone is, you need to remember to take care of you and your staff! It is becoming stressful with the shortage of employees, so you need to try to lessen that stress as much as you can. Exercise – maybe a “quick exercise time with staff” – even a few minutes of laughing can help! It’s time to talk to ourselves – yes we all do it – and give ourselves permission to take a couple minutes to just relax! Be positive! And, remember to let your employees know you appreciate them.
If we can help in any way – please give us a call! We want you and your business or community to be the best it can be!
