CNTB released four new videos as part of the #CroatiaLongDistanceLove communication concept

first_imgAnd the same content would be good for all tourists to share through their channels, because that way the campaign as well as the message spreads, which enhances the positioning as well as the chances of creating motives for the trip. Communication is always, let alone now in this crisis situation, crucial. But I must also ask the question: Is a mosaic video campaign enough? Promotional activities in the next period will take place in the four mentioned segments, and the first one was published on social networks. video on the topic of Croatian natural beauties.  The whole campaign #CroatiaLongDistanceLove it is based on mosaic video frames, which again have no or no narrative and story. Ok, we are beautiful and beautiful, like many other destinations, but that is not enough in today’s 21st century, let alone now, when we talk about the promotion of tourist destinations. If we all share content – the message and campaign is stronger and more effective The video was shared by numerous county and local tourist boards, agencies and hotel houses, as well as private renters, and well-known Croatian athletes, foreign bloggers and journalists and the European Travel Commission, who shared the video on its website, also took part in sharing the messages. The Croatian National Tourist Board has prepared four new videos for activities on social networks on the topic gastronomy, natural beauty, active tourism and culture through which he continues to implement the new communication concept #CroatiaLongDistanceLove.  More, much much more is expected from the CNTB as the main promotional platform. Especially in this crisis situation, where in addition to the promotion itself, it is necessary to further activate the “internal” communication with the entire tourism system. People are confused, waiting for information, they do not know how and in which direction to go, how to communicate, what to expect, both from the tourist boards and from all entrepreneurs in the tourist mosaic. The video launching the #CroatiaLongDistanceLove concept has so far been viewed by over 500 million users, according to the CNTB, and most views and comments have been made in nearby markets such as Germany, Italy, Austria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Slovenia.  Publishing a video and inviting people to share photos is a long-outdated concept of promotion, (only in the case of only one segment of the broader concept) a concept that has no head and no tail, nor is it a complete story. Not to mention a campaign that stands out from the crowd, that is different from the long ones, that is unique, that requires real interaction and that attracts attention.last_img read more

Paterson strike sinks Russia

first_img It was the least his energetic and passionate display deserved and he might have had another when his 58th-minute header was chalked off to a tight offside flag. The day had started inauspiciously for the hosts, with Manchester United defender Jonny Evans missing from the squad due to a stomach bug. Craig Cathcart was drafted in at centre-half as a result, with Jamie Ward and Paterson given the attacking roles in place of Lafferty (Achilles) and Chris Brunt (suspended). Northern Ireland started with intent as Ward, McGinn and Paterson all got shots away inside the first five minutes. None caused Igor Akinfeev serious concern, but it at least showed belief. Russia responded with a couple of early counter attacks – one falling to Aleksandr Kerzhakov in the area and the other seeing Alan Dzagoev line up a shot from 10 yards. Gareth McAuley ended both, a brave block and a sliding tackle keeping his side in it. McGinn produced a dynamic run from the right wing in the 13th minute, going past two men and cutting into the box only to take one touch too many before pulling the trigger. Press Association O’Neill’s first nine matches in charge of the national side had yielded five draws and four defeats, but his first taste of success at the highest level was a sweet one as his men got the better of former England boss Fabio Capello and his highly-rated charges in Belfast. The tireless Paterson, only starting because of an injury to Kyle Lafferty, delivered the result by nodding home Niall McGinn’s 43rd-minute cross – his second goal for Northern Ireland and first in competitive action. Ward was showing plenty of nice touches in the number 10 position, linking well with Oliver Norwood in midfield and looking to play Paterson into space. With a fully-fit squad, he may have been confined to the bench but he was making the most of his chance. Norwood was caught in possession on the half-hour and the alert Dzagoev responded by setting Kerzhakov free, but his deflected shot looped over. The breakthrough almost came in the 41st minute when Ward collected Danny Lafferty’s quick free-kick, carried the ball a couple of paces and then rifled a low shot against the post from 25 yards. Paterson tried to turn home the rebound but could not get any power on his touch. Northern Ireland may have been frustrated but they responded in the ideal fashion. McGinn was the provider, getting in behind his man and chasing the ball to the byline, where he hit a first-time cross towards Paterson. The Huddersfield forward timed his leap and directed a fine header into the far corner. Capello made two changes at the break, replacing Kerzhakov and Dzagoev with Artem Dzyuba and Denis Cheryshev but the latter lasted just six minutes before limping off himself. Russia were forced to use their final substitute as a result, Alexander Samedov entering the fray. With 58 minutes on the clock Northern Ireland – and Paterson – were agonisingly close to a second. Shane Ferguson’s deep corner was steered back across goal by Cathcart and headed in by Paterson, only for a marginal offside flag to cut short the celebrations. An injury to McAuley allowed both sides a chance to collect themselves and receive instruction from the sidelines, Capello getting the chance to earn his near £8million-a-year contract. But it was Northern Ireland who had the first chance after the resumption, Ferguson’s quick feet giving him room to cross for Paterson. He challenged Akinfeev hard but was unlucky to be booked for his efforts. As the game entered the last 10 minutes Roman Shirokov started to take the game to the hosts but his runs were not enough to unsettle a back line marshalled calmly by McAuley. With nine minutes left, McGinn made way for the defensively minded Corry Evans and Brentford’s Will Grigg joined him as the exiting Paterson was awarded a hero’s reception. Four tense minutes of injury-time prolonged O’Neill’s wait but Russia went limp as the time ebbed away. Martin Paterson’s first-half header ended Northern Ireland manager Michael O’Neill’s long wait for a victory as his side recorded a well-earned 1-0 win over Russia at Windsor Park.last_img read more

GPL Review: Players, coaches react to matchday 6

first_imgWe brought you the review and the stats pertaining week six of Ghana Premier League, now what are the reactions of the main men involved?HERBERT ADDO BLAMES HIS SIDE’S DULLNESSWe did not play as we should have played. We were too dull and not sharp enough and Dwarfs were sharp so the result is what is expected. If you are not prepared to fight, and the other team is prepared to fight, then you get into a real fight. Dwarfs did well, their tactics worked and our central defenders did very well. They did very well and good luck to them.ANTHONY COMMEY HAPPY DESPITE HOME DRAWWe played the game alright, creating chances but failed to score. The game was not bad, they got the goals from the chances they created but this is a starting point. AMOS ADEPA CREDITS HIS SIDE’S DETERMINATION IN WIN OVER HEARTSIt was our determination and focus that gave us the victory. We have planned to be in the top four so it is our focus and preparations that gave us the victory over Hearts.KENICHI WANTS HEARTS TO MOVE ON I understand their frustration but I don’t think it should have been done that way. I don’t think we should blame the referee and his assistants. I was frustrated as much as the fans were but we were still playing. We were still determined as we could see with the players in the middle of the pitch as they came strong. We really wish we could have another game.AND HIS CAPTAIN BELIEVES THE RESULT WAS ONLY A BLIPIt was not a bad game. We came all out for a victory unfortunately we did not get it. We are not down because we have more matches. We are going back to correct our mistakes. Our next game is away and we hope to deliver. STEPHEN ADAMS ASSURES ADUANA STARSThe fans should keep supporting us because all is not lost. We lost our first three matches but under our new coach, we are unbeaten in three. They should keep supporting us.BASHIR HAYFORD FORESAW A BAD DAY FOR HIS SIDENothing went right today from goalkeeping to attack. From the beginning to the end, nothing went right. When you do your homework and this happens, then you take it as it as. Once the same people will be playing our next game, we have to put this behind us and go back again and prepare. We prepared to come and win not to lose but when the game started, I could see the day is not good for us. We have played six matches, we have now lost. There is no pressure on us.  –Follow Kweku on Twitter: @nana_odum. Get more updates on Facebook/Twitter with the #JoySports hashtaglast_img read more
