We are now embarking on a ramp up of our social media presence to help build a strong bankspeninsula.kiwi community of groups who will contribute towards growing domestic tourism.
The bankspeninsula.kiwi facebook page (facebook.com/regenerativetourism) is designed as an adjunct to the web site and fulfills a promotional role. As such, it is the first step in implementing our media strategy involving social media. Over time it will change emphasis and become part of our domestic tourist outreach efforts.
There are some excellent, well established and very well visited Facebook pages out there, but they fill either a much broader role or the narrower role of a local social club or residents association. Some of them are private, some of them public pages. Some of them have taken on the role of a buy & sell exchange and some are more focused on providing trades contacts and promoting specials to residents and general entertainment.
Rather than list them all here they are mostly found by a Facebook search for Akaroa, Lyttelton, Little River, Pigeon Bay and so on.
