Letter from Florida Sale Trail
Welcome to Florida….
We are a small Florida-centric company that can easily assist Red Lion develop out your Florida brand awareness at much lower costs than what it would cost even an intern to perform at the corporate level. Why because we are Florida entrenched….we don’t promote ourselves – we work behind the scenes to promote cities (and just recently launching businesses) across Florida.
A bit about me: I am a former Florida city manager and understand the culture of how cities need to present themselves in a non-commercial way to the visitors and to prospective residents. A former publication marketer/owner has worked a long-time presenting Florida successfully in Florida. For years we operated a very popular FloridaView (which is being redeveloped online soon) and are just building a new Florida-based resource FloridaProud.
But over the last 2 years we have slowly converted everything online initially behind the scenes niche but bringing out own “overlay” brand public now…but still focusing on being second to the “community stops” and “business spots” we represent. But we know Social Media very well – all Florida – all the time.
As you know, at any given second about 6,300 new Tweets are created while almost a billion people log on each day to Facebook. Our Trail Sale Florida event is fairly new and will be held in November – when much of the summer tourism is gone and before the high season tourism traffic….benefits all of Florida.
*Facebook – FloridaSaleTrail also has a very interactive Facebook Business Fan page as well as a popular Profile page with over 1,500 friends and growing quickly.
