Communication campaign for tourism in the Philippines: viral videos
Not disposing of a large budget to advertise, the Philippines’ Department of Tourism tried to differentiate itself from other countries, such as the Indonesia tourism campaign, and stimulate the buzz on Internet, with a “viral” approach.
So the “It’s more fun in the Philippines” campaign is especially targeted at younger people with a series of funny and emotional videos aimed at stimulating online activity and sharing. And it has been quite a success! Some of the Philippines’ tourism videos now count way more that a million views:
Popping the question is more fun in the Philippines
Parking is more fun in the Philippines
More videos can be found and embedded into your website or blogs from the Philippines’ Department of Tourism Youtube channel.
