Traffic doubles for Muskoka campaign “Take Back Winter!”

Objective: Develop a creative online social media campaign for Muskoka Tourism that would increase social media engagement and site traffic during the slower winter season, increasing traffic to conversion pages and developing into sales for their tourism stakeholders.

This should be easy — convincing winter-weary Canadians to go up north during one of the harshest winters on record, remember the polar vortex and ice storms? RadonicRodgers Strategy+ developed the creative campaign, branding, animation story line, digital animations, marketing phrase, copywriting and microsite, executed a digital media buy and social engagement.
