Placement is fast approaching and it’s time to get my head in the game. I will be starting placement at Bay of Quinte Tourism in a few short weeks so I thought I’d do more research on where I should be pitching stories to promote regionally, provincially, and nationally.
Topics to Consider
Good Times magazine would be ideal to promote areas like Brighton, ON as a retirement community with much to offer. The Bay of Quinte can highlight local attractions, statistics, and profiles of residents who have moved to the area.
The wine industry in Prince Edward County is growing through improved promotion of the wineries and the variety of wines that wineries are offering. It could be worthwhile to pitch a feature article to Canadian Living to promote the Bay of Quinte wine regions. The link above for Canadian Living features a list of the best places to do a wine-tasting in Canada, and Prince Edward County made the list. This was likely not pitched, but the viewers are more aware of the wine industry so they would be open to specific information for the wineries.
Outdoor Canada is the largest fishing and outdoors magazine in Canada. Continuing to create interest for this magazine is crucial. Highlighting the freshwater fishing, arenas, and various locations in the area would help to promote the outdoors industry in the area.
