The video content is a key component of the marketing plan. Sharing success stories on our website, partner websites and via social media is not only driving a considerable amount of traffic to the website and increasing new leads, it is getting positive feedback and changing the narrative within the region. People are excited over the opportunities here and encouraged by the growth that is currently happening in Niagara.  The most popular video to date is Jordan’s Story –

Challenges & Changes made
Timing was a critical component as development dollars were tied to funding criteria. Proper scouting, scheduling, story boarding and planning with multiple stakeholders needed to be perfect to ensure the final production and editing could stay on time and budget.
