IDM Südtirol - Alto Adige

Online World

It is important for South Tyrol to have a digital presence wherever its target audiences are in the world. South Tyrol’s online presence ranges from websites with regular email newsletters to smartphone applications and selected social media channels. These activities are supplemented by market-specific and thematic landing pages for promotional campaigns.

Stories from South Tyrol storytelling platform

Content marketing has been at the forefront of IDM Südtirol’s marketing activities since 2014. The online platform Stories from South Tyrol (German: Was uns bewegt and Italian: Storie da vivere) publishes tales about people from South Tyrol who each have a particular burning passion. The articles consist of editorial content of a high-quality, journalistic standard. By publishing reports, interviews, videos with an emotive documentary style and infographics, the South Tyrolean tourism industry is making a conscious effort to use Stories from South Tyrol to present itself as a brand. The content only indirectly mentions travel-related topics like hotels, ski resorts and hiking routes. Instead, the platform provides a collection of stories from the people of South Tyrol – stories which take readers to specific corners of the region, presenting particular ways of life, as well as stories which build bridges between tradition and design and nature and culture, ultimately asking what it means to lead a good life. The content on Stories from South Tyrol centres around topics which highlight South Tyrol’s strengths: “Food”, “Sustainability”, “Balance” and “Made in South Tyrol”. Universal in nature, these topics are just as important to readers in Milan, Berlin or London as they are to South Tyroleans.
Much of the content published on the platform has also been available in English since 2016.
