Tourism Oxford offers several opportunities for businesses to work together on advertising and promotion. All businesses that participate in one partnership opportunity annually receive a listing on TourismOxford.ca. Tourism Oxford then looks to these listings when developing online content. So many businesses are selected to be featured in videos, social media posts and trip itineraries.
Every year the County of Oxford publishes a visitor’s guide providing inspiration on new ways to explore Oxford. This is a low cost opportunity to be featured in a print publication that is widely distributed (45,000 copies) locally, regionally and to tourism information centres across Ontario.
Digital Advertising Partnerships:
Would you like to advertise on-line but don’t have the time or know where to start? Tourism Oxford is looking for businesses that would like to partner in digital advertisements. Through this program Tourism Oxford creates the online content which can include live video and social media posts that drives traffic to a blog on TourismOxford.ca promoting your business/event. Space is limited and preference is given to partnerships that include several businesses, promote outdoors/environment and local food. Sign-up for our industry news emails to get details about our 2019 program.
Photography & Video:
Are you wanting new photography or video promoting visitation to your business. Talk to us about our photography partnership opportunities. You benefit from sharing the cost and the photographs/video with us so we can promote you better. Contact us for more details
Every year Oxford County hosts travel writers that want to explore and write about the region. If there is a writer you would like to work with or if you would like to assist with the cost of hosting a writer at your location (e.g. accommodation, meals, experiences) please contact us. We would be happy to chat. Please note we rarely plan last minute visits to the region, often working 6-12 months in advance of a visit.
