Items of Note
BIA is the only organization marketing the town as a whole (read member benefits here), we do not control parking, garbage pickup or any other municipal action item.
The board has turned over (all positions including Chair and Vice-Chair) and new board members were voted in during the January AGM.
A substantial change in target market direction has happened, segmenting into three main focus categories: transient, local – on the island, and resident. This strategy and planning drive our marketing plan available here.
Many exterior marketing initiatives and events are planned/in progress, offering a different level of outward marketing then we have seen before.
A refocused look at generating traffic for both goods and service-based business is aimed at residents. See the article published about our Shop Your Town campaign here.
Additional member communication and interactivity is in the process ensuring complete transparency and initiative/financial knowledge available to all at all times. This includes a fully functional initiative listing visible to all members.
A comprehensive co-op program has been developed for members to advertise at a discounted rate and includes online, social, billboard, print and sponsorship available for viewing/download here.
