'Unmistakably from this place': as the fantasy ends, Tourism New Zealand launches next iteration of 100% Pure
16 years ago, the 100% Pure slogan was born (after being conceived by an Australian agency). And, despite a few naysayers pointing to the fact that it's not entirely true, it's widely recognised as one of the world's most successful tourism marketing campaigns. For the past three years, it's had a distinctly fantastical feel as part of the 100% Pure, 100% Middle Earth campaign, but rather than chuck it all out and start again, it's decided on an evolution, both in terms of the comms and the visual identity. PLUS: Andrew Fraser on Tourism New Zealand's growing digital focus.
Devin Graham, an American videographer who produces adventure and extreme sport videos under the name Devin Super Tramp, has become one of social media's biggest names, with more than 2.9 million YouTube subscribers and over 530 million total views. Tourism New Zealand got him to come for a visit and it ended up being the most successful social influencer work it has done to date.
For the third year running, Tourism New Zealand has reworked its 'more magic every day' campaign in a bid to attract Aussie skiers across the ditch for a winter holiday. The latest iteration of the ongoing campaign by Whybin\TBWA Sydney sees the Kiwi tourism body partner with Air New Zealand, Flight Centre, Instagram and the ski industry in New Zealand to drive holiday visitor numbers. And while Tourism New Zealand has previously collaborated with the other parties, this marks the first time that the organisation has partnered with Instagram to promote New Zealand through paid imagery and video content. PLUS: StopPress chats to Tourism New Zealand director of marketing Andrew Fraser about the organisation's digital strategy.
There's plenty of discussion about whether the 100% Pure campaign has had its day and the country appears to be reaching peak Hobbit, but there's no doubt New Zealand's clever tourism marketing tactics over the years have done the business and attracted more tourists to these fine lands.
Ever felt the urge to go for a casual skydive, snowboard, mountain bike, bungee and jet boat ride all in under an hour? Did you know that this was even possible? Well, a new video from Tourism New Zealand confirms it most definitely is.
Touchcast will work with Tourism New Zealand to zjush up TNZ’s digital brand asset management platform that helps all New Zealand's various tourism activities appear unceasingly epic to the world. TNZ has large image and footage libraries online that currently tourism industry businesses can apply to use, as long as it is used to promote New Zealand as a holiday destination, is mostly be distributed outside of New Zealand, and is not used in paid advertising. In the last year over 65,000 downloads were made from the system.
Adding to the avalanche of selfies, 'dronies' might soon be saturating the social media feeds of snow-goers, with a camera-equipped drone hitting the South Island ski slopes in Tourism New Zealand’s latest stunt.
