To kick off the summer, Sunrise Corner held a launch for our new marketing plan Friday, April 26.
Those who came out to Zhoda for our public event were treated to a recap of videos from past seasons, hotdogs and refreshments, a fun outdoor scavenger hunt and a summary of the new marketing strategies Sunrise Corner hopes to implement in the coming years.
Sunrise Corner’s goal is to promote the nature, culture and events here in the RMs of Piney and Stuartburn. Through the funding from Partner for Growth and the marketing firm Changemakers, we have researched and polled to come up with strategies to grow and develop our reach.
Here are a few marketing objectives that are currently being worked on:
- Changing our logo to be more readable and to contain the word ‘tourism’ for more clarity
- Creating partnerships with local organizations and businesses who also want to attract visitors
- Promoting positive conversation about our corner of Manitoba – focusing on our nature, our heritage and our events
In the future, Sunrise Corner hopes to continue:
- Bettering our website and social media appearance
- Growing our library of professional photos
- Standardizing our ‘brand’ layouts and logo usage on print and online materials
