Tampa-based company promotes webcam mobile link to reassure out-of-state visitors of oil-free beaches and help to reduce cancellations.
Online PR News – 21-June-2010 – – TAMPA, Florida (June 21, 2010) – Tampa-based Mobilozophy is hoping that a little Mobile Marketing magic will reassure prospective out-of-state visitors that area beaches are free from BP oil and waiting for them.
“Like most Tampa Bay businesses, we are very concerned about the impact of the BP oil spill on tourism dollars for our community,” said Paul Wray, Mobilozophy managing partner. “We’re looking at every way possible to leverage our technology to help the businesses that serve the travelers that visit our beaches.”
The Mobilozophy team felt one way to do that was to allow prospective visitors to see real-time images of Florida’s West Coast beaches right on their mobile phones. So the company created a webcam beach link that can be accessed through text messaging. They are promoting the text link across the Internet.
“The idea is that those who have travel arrangements or are considering coming to the Florida’s West Coast beaches can see for themselves that our beaches aren’t impacted by the spill,” explained Wray.
Prospective visitors simply text the word BEACH to 28766 and instantly receive a link to the Beach webcam.
Wray said his team is looking at other ideas to spread the positive news about Tampa Bay by using the company’s mobile technology. “If we can save even one cancellation or be the reason someone decides to visit here, we feel like we’ve done something to help.”
