Tourism Jasper is the destination marketing organization that promotes travel to Jasper, Alberta, Canada. They’ve learned that tourists increasingly want to hear opinions and real stories from other travelers. This requires strategic social and digital media to support online conversations and fuel business growth. Using Hootsuite, they launched an ongoing campaign that would build a community around the hashtag #MyJasper.

  • 12,000 traveller-generated stories through instagram hashtag #MyJasper
  • 185% increase in social referrals to their website year over year
  • 211% increase in shareholder referral from social media year over year
