The Cesme Marina social media competition first started in June 2014 to better engage with guests visiting Cesme Marina online and via social media. Guests and visitors to the marina are encouraged to share their pictures or video content via Instagram using the hashtag #Buradamutluyum and tagging in @iccesmemarina.
This hashtag is a Turkish translation of the English feel-good phrase, ‘I am Happy Here’ and the ‘happy’ memories of visitors and guests of the marina are communicated via their posts online.
Between 2-3 winners are chosen per summer season, with the winning Instagram post specially chosen by the Cesme Marina Board who believe the content posted best represents Cesme Marinas ethos of an enjoyable and beautiful destination in Turkey, further encouraging an online audience of visitors and greater tourism to Cesme Marina. The chosen winners per summer season, are offered a unique stay at the Cesme Marina Residence plus delicious dinner for two.
The content through Instagram can be viewed online by searching the hashtag #Buradamutluyum, with some of the most popular posts gaining plentiful ‘likes’ and ‘shares’, resulting in personal memories and experiences at Cesme Marina widely promoted for other Instagram users to see.
Can Akaltan, General Marina Manager at Cesme Marina comments, “Cesme Marina is a 5-star lifestyle destination, complete with shops, restaurants and boats visiting the marina. There is a family-friendly events calendar full of activity including sailing regattas, shopping events and even yoga and fitness classes to enjoy. The hive of activity taking place at the marina is one to be shared and we have found that Instagram is a perfect online and social media platform for everyone to share their own personal experiences. The competition is a great example of how we are dynamic in our approach to better promoting Cesme Marina and the experiences that can be enjoyed here. We are so pleased that many people share our ethos of ‘I am Happy Here’ and that it can be perfectly communicated in a fun and informal image library for all to enjoy via #Buradamutluyum!”
