Social media marketing is making inroads on the island, slowly. Many businesses on the island, from villas to snorkel cruises, have FaceBook pages and Web sites. The Inquiring Iguana is most interested in what’s new, so static sites don’t catch his attention. He wants to know ‘the haps”!
One of the latest efforts comes from Grande Bay Resort, the condo/fractional ownership development at Cruz Bay (and an advertiser). Grande Bay is sending tweets several times a week, sometimes including photos of the islands, alerts about island entertainment events, and other times just sending best wishes to recently guests.
Islandia Real Estate has had a blog for several years. Sometimes there’s news, most often they’re pitching properties.
Caneel Bay’s Facebook page is updated a few times a week. The most recent post includes a photo of an annual staff party marking the closing of the resort until November 1st.
Do you know of other newsy blogs/Twitter/FB marketing efforts on the island?
