Are you on the front lines of Copper Country tourism?
Believe it or not, you are the “local expert” to the visitor who asks you for advice. What you tell them matters! It can make a memorable family vacation or bring a customer back to do business, or encourage someone to resettle or bring opportunities to the community. The Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau created a fun on-line program to prepare you for the question “So, what's to do around here?”
A new website called Copper Country Certified offers three simple open-book, multiple-choice quizzes about what to do and see in our community. There's no need to study and all the answers are found at Keweenaw.info.
Residents who complete the quiz are then 'certified'. Individuals receive a certificate, and businesses receive a vinyl cling sticker to put on the window of their store if 80% of their employees get certified.
Feeling confident about the area's amenities projects a feeling of pride and warmth, builds customer relationships, and goodwill between local businesses. Visitors remember the local places that were enthusiastic about their hometown and helpful in matching a their interests. It's free and can be done from your home at any time of day.
Next time someone asks “where can I get some sandals and find a beach” don't be caught flat footed. Log on to coppercountrycertified.com or stop by the Keweenaw Convention & Visitors Bureau for more information.
