Knack Factory Winter CAMPAIGN

Winter Promotional Videos

Regional content created to promote shoulder season

To kick off the year, we partnered with local media company Knack Factory to shoot a winter video series in late January and early February. These videos will be promoted on social media and YouTube encouraging shoulder-season visitation. The videos have all been shot and are have been released on our YouTube channel. A coordinated marketing push will be executed in the Fall/Winter.

The goal of this campaign was to showcase the region during the cooler months and to inspire travel during a time when local businesses could use a boost. It is no secret that Portland is quieter in the shoulder-season months, however there is no shortage of places to stay, eat, and play in the region.

We shot at numerous partner locations, including: breweries, restaurants, hotels, shops, and attractions. To engage with as many people as possible, we worked with different types of visitors, from a family with young children, to a young, newly married couple. We wanted to show how Portland is a destination for everyone to enjoy, and represent all kinds of visitors.

These four videos are going to be rolled out in the spring and promoted later in the year with a targeted digital marketing push. We are very excited to showcase these videos to attract more visitors all year long!
