If you have an active blog or website, we ask that you post about your experience within 2 weeks after your trip and send to taylorc@firebellymarketing.com for approval before publishing. All content should be published within 3 weeks of visiting.

Please include personalized UTM link when Visit Bloomington is mentioned on your blog or website. Email taylorc@firebellymarketing.com if you don’t already have this link.

Post channels: Blog/website, Instagram and YouTube, if applicable

  • Blogs & videos shared on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest, if applicable

We will send hotel information, UTM Link and travel scavenger hunt information after you submit this form.
 

Preferred Post Format

We are looking for authentic posts most importantly. Natural light photography and videos preferred.

Do’s: Show the energy of a place, not just the people. Show the experience, not a stiff pose. We are interested in your character coming through, not models.

Don’ts: Selfies that only feature your face.
 

Messaging

Engage your audience in a discussion about Bloomington, having weekend adventures, and local cities that are worth visiting on a road trip.
