Encourage your visitors to blog about their experience to a huge online audience! Tourism BC offers an easy and free way for your visitors and locals with inside knowledge to blog about your community, destination or travel experience on its popular HelloBC website.
The HelloBC Blogs allow people who have had a great experience, adventure or holiday to tell their story and post a photo or video to tell the world.
This gives communities and tourism businesses in the Thompson Okanagan the potential to gain valuable word-of-mouth exposure to the more than seven million travel consumers who look at the HelloBC website each year.
To view all blogs on the HelloBC website, go to: www.hellobc.comBlogs. You can filter the hundreds of blog entries by Location (a Communities list), Activity and Media. To see blogs about visitors' travel experiences in your community, just select your community on the drop-down list at the left. If your community is not listed, choose a nearby community or type in your community name in the search bar on any page on the HelloBC website.
Hello BC blogs specific to your community can be displayed on your own community website through simple HTML code, which uploads a HelloBC blog widget onto your community website in the location you choose.
