#TownsvilleShines Social Media Experiment in Townsville, Australia
Townsville City Council Launches Twitter Campaign
Townsville City Council launched a social media marketing campaign today to encourage visitors to Townsville to spread the good word (images and videos) about our wonderful city.
Townsville is just about to move into a very busy 2-week tourist period with the jet boat races this weekend, the show during the week and then the V8s Townsville 400 Festival. This is an ideal time to get Townsville the global recognition it deserves.
The campaign will include impromptu events and competitions across Townsville for those followers of the hashtag #TownsvilleShines. Besides, it’s also a great way for Townsville business to ride the social media wave, and participate in the promotional campaign, and potentially reach an audience not normally accessible for traditional medium.
So it’s worth taking the opportunity to learn all about this thing they call twitter. If you need help, or want your business setup on Twitter FAST to take advantage of the social media buzz, email us at Tracy@TownsvilleSocialMediaMarketing.com and we’ll get a profile setup for you quick smart.

EXERT: MY COMMENT TO THE TOWNSVILLE BULLETIN LAUNCH ARTICLE:
Well, I might be biased, (Townsville Social Media being my ‘thing’), I think this #TownsvilleShines idea is great. Townsville has a great opportunity with the upcoming events, to capitalise on the buzz, and what better way than using the ‘buzz-isphere’ social media. Now, we just need to tell the rest of Australia and the world to follow the #hashtag #TownsvilleShines , otherwise we’re just preaching to the converted. Good Tweeting… http://TownsvilleSocialMediaMarketing.com
