San Marcos Convention & Visitor Bureau

1 of 4

Description: We partnered with Downtown San Marcos to drive visitors to the heart of San Marcos and experience what makes us truly unique. We wanted to show that “The Square” is more than just a fantastic nightlife spot (it really is though) by using imagery of shopping, eating, events, arts and live music to depict its status as the cultural hub of the city, and easily navigable.

Objectives: Increase visitor traffic to Downtown San Marcos.


Project Costs:$6,500

Experience Bryan College Station

Description: United & American Airlines offered direct flights from Alabama to Easterwood Airport in College Station for the weekend of the Alabama vs Texas A&M football game for the first time. To capitalize on this while reducing cost, we partnered with Easterwood Airport to purchase ad space in Alabama Metro360 Magazine, as well as Facebook ads targeted at Crimson Tide fans in Alabama.

Objectives: To reduce cost for both parties while increasing both flight & hotel bookings.


Project Costs:: $500 each

Beaumont Convention and Visitors Bureau

1 of 6
Description: Birding and beyond in the region between Beaumont, Texas and Lake Charles, Louisiana that serves as a critical stopover for millions of birds. We invite you to experience birding at 34 different hot spots within a 90-mile radius.

Objectives: Showcased birding festivals, hot spots and birding-related content in Birding Magazine and other publications. This cooperative marketing enhances the visibility of our destinations to a demographic that is willing to spend money, and stay a multitude of days within a destination and region. This partnership created a unique opportunity to work across state lines and show birders what is offered within a close proximity. Rather than driving days or flying from destination to destination. This co-op is the best of both worlds. It gives birders the opportunity a taste of Louisiana with a Texas kick.


Project Costs: $600 - Promotional
$4,800 - Ad Placement
$1,200 - Birding Festivals
