Oban and Lorn Tourism Association

Digital and Social media campaigns


Our client, Oban & Lorn Tourism Association (OLTA), approached us and asked us to manage their Growth Fund campaign, match-funded by Visit Scotland. 

Campaign Objective:

To promote Oban to the millennial demographic through a digital and social media campaign – aiming to attract young tourists to visit the town.


Campaign activities included:


  • Researching the target market
  • Planning the campaign
  • Planning the storyboard for the campaign
  • Planning who and what would be involved in the campaign 
  • Liaising and organising video and photography shoots to capture young individuals, exploring and enjoying all that Oban has to offer – from water sports such as kayaking and seafari tours, to more laid back activities such as eating, drinking and ceilidh dancing. 


The wide variety of activities captured ensured that we were able to market to a variety of individuals within the millennial age range.

We then went on to use the images and videos to strategically implement the planned marketing campaign through a series of social media posts and advertisements, in order to reach the KPI’s set out by VisitScotland. We were also given a significant advertising budget to use through OLTA’s social media platforms. 


Other marketing activities undertaken within the campaign included:

  • Organised influencers to visit/stay/eat in and around Oban
  • Set up data capture competition with  – in line with GDPR requirements
  • Created millennial friendly itineraries – legacy material for future usage
