ComeMakeWeGo

Destination Marketer (Online and Offline)

Leveraged digital and social media, as well as the traditional form of marketing to plan, develop and execute marketing initiatives to sell Ado-Awaye as a destination-of-choice for hikers in Nigeria.

I proactively engaged with stakeholders to drive a consistent and consecutive increase in visitor arrivals and expenditure over the last 5 months, while also significantly promoting and lifting the destination’s profile across all market segments for investment purposes. 

Within the first 4 months, with strategic partnerships, the destination got over 800,000 reaches across web platforms and a physical visit record of 400.

Visitor’s database has also been introduced to keep a proper record and make better investment choices.
