I'm sorry Tourism Tenerife but you have it wrong again. The way to promote #TenerifeGolf  to the uk market is from within ..by generating great content, using blogs and social media to share and engage with the golfing community. Bring the players, Hotels, golf shops, courses, tour operators into line with 'new rules marketing' strategies.

Tenerife Golf can't afford to rest on it's laurels! New competition is coming online soon. 

"There are now over thirty golf courses in Morocco and a dozen others are being developed, most of which will be inaugurated in 2015." (Gold European Magazine). 

The problem is the people in decision making positions don't understand new rules marketing. You don't have to contract a PR company in the UK that knows nothing about Tenerife Golf to promote to the UK! The game has changed, marketing has evolved! 

Great content strategy = #Blogposts  #Videos #Photos #competitions #engagement   #makeitfun  #socialmedia #collaboration #partners   #changethechip   #realtime   #wififree  #community #teneifegolf  Sir Old Golfer Golf Del Sur Tenerife Golf +Golf Las Américas

You're so right Mike. I think putting resources into a small core team with the courses etc helping out, that would be so much more effective. I remember a few years ago they outsourced the twitter account @visittenerife to a UK PR agrency which knew nothing about Tenerife.

Story
Tagline
South African living and working in the Canary Islands! Love to play Golf. Passionate about interactive marketing and real time media.
Introduction
My childhood was spent in Durban and the Eastern Cape. After college (Dale College) I worked as a cricket coach in Exeter, South England and then moved to Tenerife, Spain.

I studied Marketing and Business Management; in 1999 I set up an Internet Marketing company called SortedSites.com where I still work with a great bunch of guys. 

I'm really enjoying all the challenges and opportunities while working as the online community manager at Sands Beach Resort in Lanzarote. It's a great resort with a fantasitc team behind it!

Of all my life experiences, I am most proud of my wife Hellen, my daughter Gabriella and our latest addition Vincent.

I'm extremely disappointed with Moviten Adeje (vodafone)! We moved over from Movistar (Telefonica) to Vodafone after the attractive sales lady Caterina showed us how our business can save up to 30% off our phone bill... 18 months on when I compare what we spent the previous 18 months with Movistar (Telefonica) we have actually spent 30% more!!! Reasons for total dissatisfaction: 1. They could not guarantee the ADSL connection speed that they promised and suggested that we remain with Movistar, this means we could also not save on the costs of a fixed IP. 2. When we call out from the office line it shows up as a mobile number, it also means that if someone has to call us back it's on a mobile rate! They promised us that this would be sorted within a month....eighteen months on this is still the issue. 3. In the quote it shows a one off fee of €15 per an extension, we have X5. However in the 2nd month they billed us again and said this is in fact a monthly fee. WTF!!! 4. After the sale was made Catrina did not want to deal with any of our issue's, we were passed on Noelia who has not shown the slightest interest in us. 5. I asked Noelia when our contract expires or how much it would be to buy ourselves out she replied our contract is for 18months and we would have to pay over €1,000 to come out of the contract because each extension is treated as a separate contract! 6. Not even Noelia can make sense of the way the Vodafone invoices are presented, it is totally unclear with all the discounts and packages to get a true reflection on what you are paying. 7. Today I visited the Moviten office in Adeje and asked when our contract expires and was told that it has just been auto renewed until 2012...again WTF!!! I can go on and on about Moviten and Vodafone but to be honest they have just worn me out I don't know what else to do other than waste my time to write this and warn other people about another useless Telecom Giant!

This has to be one of the best golf Hotels in Europe! Where else can you drive your buggy straight from the course into the Hotel and leave your bag in a locker.
