HomesteadMag.com, the online counterpart to Homestead, went live today with a collection of new content. The 10th Anniversary Issue of Jackson Hole’s premiere resource for art, architecture and interior design hit shelves earlier this spring, and now readers can access the same original articles and resource directory listings online.
I just wanted to let you know that the videos you created for us have been a more successful addition to our web marketing than we could have imagined. In addition, I thought I would share a couple of stories with you.
Last year at one of our cookouts we were talking with a guest who has been returning consistently for the last few years. He was so excited to be at the ranch again and he told us that in the two weeks prior to his arrival, he visited our web site daily to play the videos so he could see and hear the ranch.
The following month we had a single mom from New York bring her teenage son to the 4UR for a special vacation. She shared with us that this type of travel was a bit frightening and not a normal occurrence for her. However, after viewing our videos she wasn’t afraid to come all this way as she felt she already knew the people she would be visiting.
We could never have predicted this type of positive interaction and it’s impact on our guest’s experience. Many thanks again to you and Circumerro, and good luck to you in “rounding up” more guest ranches for your business.
Recently we were shooting and helping to cross-market our two clients Field & Stream Brand Clothing and EpicQuest in Alaska. The end of March and first of April you tend to find the who’s who in skiing congregating on Alaska’s coastal maritime snowpack. Athletes, filmmakers, photographers, guides and helicopters all come together to produce much of what we media junkies consume.
Chris Owens, vice president of operations for EpicQuest, hosted us for a small dinner with Chris Davenport and Stian Hagen who where in Girdwood shooting with Warren Miller for next season’s film. You might have caught the April article in Outside Mag on skiing first descents in Antarctica. Pretty cool meeting these guys and sharing some PBR together.
I would say if you love skiing a trip to Alaska and with EpicQuest/Chugatch Powder Guides should be on your bucket list and you never know who you just might meet in the bar.
