After ten years away from Dickinson County, Julie Roller Weeks returned with a renewed enthusiasm for making Abilene better. In this presentation, hear firsthand how rural communities can share their stories by using earned media, social media influencers, and travel bloggers. By creating partnerships with others to help tell their stories, rural communities can attract new visitors and help residents see their hometown with a fresh perspective. This out-of-the-box, work harder, not spend larger approach maximizes budgets and yields big results. Every town, regardless of its size and location, has something to offer. In this talk, Julie discusses how embracing tourism can help sustain our rural communities for future generations. Presented by Julie Roller Weeks.

This program will be conducted online! Contact the library for more details.
