Yuba Sutter Lodging Association

Our partnership with Yuba Sutter Lodging Association has led to an ongoing, full-scale marketing effort: Visit Yuba Sutter. The goal of this campaign has been to increase tourism and encourage travelers to book accommodations when they visit the region. The partnership has included a complete brand overhaul, fresh logo, website redesign, compelling content and video media, digital marketing, and social media management.

What the Client has to Say

For years we have struggled to effectively market our region here in Northern California. This lack of consistent and ongoing marketing contributed to low numbers of visitors to the area. After forming the Yuba Sutter Lodging Association (YSLA), we engaged your team to help create our message, brand, and marketing strategy. I was amazed at how quickly the overall awareness of the organization as well as our region increased after your team partnered with us. I have already recommended your team for other projects in our communities, and will continue to do so. I haven’t been disappointed yet! If not for your team, our organization would likely still be floundering. Thanks for putting us on a great path and always making recommendations that make us remain relevant.
