Are you looking to get your business in front of new target audiences? 

Find out how User Generated Content is motivating purchasing decisions.

One of the best ways to showcase your offerings, differentiate yourself from competitors, and inspire customers is through user-generated content. UGC, any form of text or image-based content created by fans, consumers or potential customers. 

User-generated content is becoming a hot commodity in the hospitality industry. This makes sense, since travelers are visual decision makers, and 85% of consumers find visual UGC more influential than brand photos or videos.

Visit Owatonna has been using a UGC gallery on our homepage for a few months and has seen great results already. 

50 words for $50

Feature a special offer, an upcoming event or company information--but it must be 50 words. The cost to participate is $50.
