Website Creation + Digital Marketing

Your destination’s personality is defined by your website. This portal is your front door – an inviting place for visitors to find information and tease them to experience the real thing.

Flying Compass has developed numerous destination websites by integrating content that uniquely defines the area. Our digital perspective is vastly different than many because we’ve sat on your side of the table. Because tourism marketing is all that we do, we know the industry inside and out. Lastly, we love to travel, explore and experience new places, too.

Travel Photography

Your destination is ever changing and the need for fresh photos is ongoing. Winning images sell what makes your destination unique - your people, places and experiences. In a 2017 travel study, 87% of the respondents said photos influenced them when booking. This further confirms the adage a picture is worth a thousand words.

Flying Compass has long understood that photography is key to selling every experience and why we’re fully equipped for the assignment. Capturing a sense of place is what we do and what we enjoy. Reach out to us to let us know what you think is missing from your image library. We’re here to help by giving you a quote.

Photo Retouching

To effectively sell your CVB’s destination you need and demand strong imagery. It’s what makes people say, “That’s where I want to go.” We’ve found that sometimes your favorite image is less than perfect.

With Flying Compass’ years of experience in photography, we have skill sets to take that so-so image and turn it into your signature image by removing power lines and seaweed, adding more vegetation or replacing a gray sky. Send us a jpg image with a hit list of changes and we’d be happy to provide feedback and/or a quick estimate.
