#Stellenblog Stories: Our campaign through the eyes of our influencers

by Destinate News on 24.05.2016

You might have been following our #Stellenblog campaign on social media, enjoying all the beautiful pictures and micro-stories popping up in your Twitter, Facebook and Instagram feeds. As the social media aspect of the campaign wraps up, it's time to delve deeper and read the stories of Stellenbosch on some of the world's best travel blogs.

Our approach to the campaign is two-fold. The first tier encompassing all of social media, on-the-go-sharing and micro stories, while the second tier involves creating detailed blog content which will live on long after the campaign has wrapped. 

Through this double-pronged approach, we achieve the following: pre-campaign hype and interest - urging followers to tune into the conversation, continuous content sharing during the campaign - with images and micro-stories being shared daily, and long-form stories - which drive SEO and conversion, with detailed information on how to book, get around and make the most of a visit to the destination. 

Through working with a dynamic team of multi-skilled influencers, we harnass the power of their multiple talents. From impressive social media reach to beautiful photography, emotive storytelling and video...our team covers it all, from various angles. 

A few of the first stories from this year's #Stellenblog campaign:
