My post earlier regarding BKG’s recruitment campaign suggests the idea of setting up a Flickr account to “show the sites” of South Dakota. An even better idea is to see whether there are any Flickr accounts already doing this! I came across this Flickr Group. Enjoy the show.
It may be worthwhile to post a picture a day, or a week on their blog with some descriptive detail about it. It could be them having a client creative briefing session, a company pic nick, or a special Sioux Falls event showing community spirit…etc.
The power of social sites like Flickr expands one’s mind regarding how to show people what it is like to be involved in something like an event, a company, a community etc. YouTube is another example where a company, if it makes sense, can post videos that are relevant to a specific initiatve.
Let’s look at the BKG sponsorship on Across The Sound. Would it make sense for the Sioux Falls Economic Development department to post a video on YouTube showing potential businesses and professionals what it is like to live there?
[SIDENOTE: I’m trying to figure out how to embed a Flickr slideshow within WordPress. I’ll let you know when I’m successful]
