Instagram /mysticcountryct #mysticcountry
The popular picture-taking-and-sharing application is currently growing in popularity for destination marketing by showing, not telling, potential visitors what they’ll experience. A relatively new introduction to the Eastern Regional Tourism District’s social media lineup, Mystic Country’s Instagram goal is to share the eastern Connecticut experience – spanning everything from our unique towns, attractions and events both large and small – to the public as it happens. Use the hashtag #mysticcountry to give us permission to share your Instagram images.
When we’re in the field taking a photos for Instagram, we’re also checking in on Foursquare. This geo-location social networking application allows users to “check in” at venues using a mobile website, text messaging or a phone app. Followers discover new locations to explore and helpful tips and trivia to engage them when they visit.
