Our 2020 co-op builds on the strong success of our 2019 program. Through August 2019, the co-op has delivered 89 million impressions and nearly half a million clicks to co-op partner websites! Our co-op partners have seen terrific assets created from our program’s updated photography, video and storytelling options. We are also excited by the opportunity this presents to grow our photography and video assets to use on our website, social media, and more. Similarly, we are pleased to be able to leverage the content developed by our storytelling partners for use on Ohio.org as part of our Travel Inspiration series.
Some of our outstanding 2019 partner content includes:
Captivating photography in Ashtabula, Trumbull and Medina Counties
Great videos of the Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course, Muskingum Watershed Conservancy District, golf in Trumbull County and more
Compelling storytelling for Lake Erie Shores & Islands and more
Lake Erie Shores & Islands saw 400K impressions, 4,800 clicks to their website and a click though rate exceeding the industry benchmark
Facebook event promotion ads generated a strong response for dozens of partners including Destination Mansfield, Visit Grove City, and Visit Fairfield County
Successful paid search campaigns for Castaway Bay, Experience Columbus and more
