BCLCA Online and Print Marketing

Online and Print Marketing

BCLCA thinks marketing 365 days a year and we deliver information to consumers 24/7.  Our goal is to target people seeking the outdoor recreation lifestyle and drive people to make enquiries and reservations at member properties. 

  • Listing in Super Camping/Select Lodging Guide – 80,000 copies of the guide are printed annually, and the listing works for a full 12 months, (although the guides have a two year shelf life), all 4 seasons, to attract groups, families and friends, whatever their combined lodging and camping needs might be.
  • The BC Super Camping App is available to install for FREE from the Mobile App Store on IOS and Play Store on Android. All BCLCA members who list in the print guide automatically get listed on the Camping App.
  • Global online marketing through a responsive design listing on travel-british-columbia.com with over 500,000 visitors annually. The web profile listing includes contact information and a link to your website.
  • Online Booking reservations for lodging, campground and RV Parks – the website listing has a book now button for members directly from travel-british-columbia.com. Each year, BC visitors view more than 1.5 million pages on our travel-british-columbia.com website, while they are planning a trip. Our goal is to leverage these visits to generate reservations and revenue.
  • Check In Canada for lodging properties – Today’s consumers prefer to book directly with accommodation providers. However, until now, they could only shop for accommodations by searching passive listing sites, browsing Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), or multiple hotel websites. Through Check In Canada, consumers can perform a dynamic accommodation search and obtain results by accommodation, room type, and price
  • Camping and RVing BC Coalition – BCLCA is the lead agency for the Coalition marketing initiatives with staff and contractors employed year-round to manage and implement this annual $150,000+ cooperative marketing initiative. The call to action is the website https://www.campingrvbc.com and it lists all BCLCA campground/RV park members in good standing.

The second weekend after Labour Day is national Campers Appreciation Weekend. Members can participate by offering discounted stays and events or supporting Care Camps for kids – there is no fee to participate but you must be a member in good standing.
