On today’s special episode of the Destination Marketing Podcast, join Adam and Stuart Butler, Chief Marketing Officer of Visit Myrtle Beach, as they take a deep dive into the world of owned media. In a new series inspired by their soon-to-be-published book, the duo explores the current marketing philosophy and why so many destinations aren't fully utilizing the power of owned media. The conversation explores the pressure to prioritize bottom-of-funnel conversions, the limitations of the last-click attribution model and the need to demonstrate immediate results. Stuart and Adam also delve into the importance of building trust and collaboration with stakeholders, as well as nurturing an engaged audience through owned media. By the end of this episode, you'll have a better understanding of how to harness the power of owned media and develop a marketing strategy that delivers tangible results.

"We have to change. If we don't, that's not going to be good for us as DMOs if we're putting all of our eggs in the paid media basket. What we're doing, and what I encourage all DMOs to do, is to shift, gradually and responsibly over time, a portion of our dollars from paid media to owned media." -Stuart Butler
