Shepparton & Goulburn Valley Brand Industry Toolkit
Our new Shepparton & Goulburn Valley brand is the culmination of much consultation and brings the stories, experiences and attractions of our region all together under one distinct positioning that truly sets us apart within regional Victoria.
The purpose of this Industry Toolkit is to help all of our local businesses, tourism operators and community groups to leverage the brand imagery, assets and messaging to help promote your own offers.
Social Media Takeover Form
Each month, we will feature a different experience, event, attraction or business from our Shepparton & Goulburn Valley region on all our social media channels.
This is a great value opportunity for our community to share their stories and engage with new audiences, so it is important we work together to create content that makes people want to stop, read, share and act.
There is no monetary contribution required, simply the investment of some time to answer a few questions and provide a few photos, we do the rest. In return for your time investment, you're business can reach over 100,000 visitors throughout the month long campaign.
