I have been living in the Dauphin area of Manitoba for just over two years. I am enjoying this area of the province very much and I am always finding new things to see and do. Recently while reading the local newspaper, The Dauphin Herald, I came upon an article about a new social media marketing campaign launched by Tourism Dauphin. It is called "One Year Here" and the goal is to showcase what life is like for locals in the Dauphin area. The campaign runs one full year and offers the chance for residents to help promote all the great activities and events available in the Dauphin area. Participants can tweet using the hastag #1yrhere and apply to write blogs or articles about their experiences in the Dauphin area.
After reading the article about the new One Year Here campaign I knew immediately that I wanted to participate. Through this blog I have become passionate about promoting Manitoba, and I am very excited to partner with Tourism Dauphin to bring more promotion to this part of the province. I will be be blogging and tweeting about some of my Dauphin area experiences in the upcoming year. I encourage you to follow along with this campaign to learn more about the opportunities in the Dauphin area. If you live in the Dauphin area perhaps you would like to participate in One Year Here too - applications are currently being accepted! For more information visit www.oneyearhere.ca or phone Tourism Dauphin at 204-622-3216.
I truly have been enjoying my time in this part of Manitoba and I do hope this new campaign encourages others to explore the Dauphin area and all it has to offer. Stay tuned for more!
