3 Quick Digital Team Tips
1) Find and share great content. There is a lot of great content about the Cook Islands on-line. From News/magazine articles, blogs and posts by visitors to the Cook Islands there is plenty to choose from. Utilise the search function in Facebook or share some of the great content on the Cook Islands Tourism Facebook page.
Bonus Tip: Don't be afraid to recycle great content from a couple of years back (if it's still relevant) under a 'Throwback Thursday or #TBT
2) Post as regularly as you can. Posting regularly keeps your page fresh and will place your content into your friends and fans newsfeed.
3) Utilise moving/video footage. Facebook is more likely to place a video in a users newsfeed than a static image. Videos loaded natively on Facebook (ie not a link to Youtube or Vimeo etc) will perform better and will keep people on your page.
