Advertising Co-ops

An essential component of TourismOhio’s success is establishing and marketing private-sector partnerships. These partnerships have a proven track record of developing and funding effective advertising campaigns that encourage travel within Ohio’s borders and promote tourism within the entire Midwestern region.

The co-op features a variety of advertising opportunities and a wide range of budgets to benefit organizations of all sizes.

Please contact Lauren Seckel, TourismOhio Marketing Manager, 614.387.1498, if you have questions or would like to participate in our co-op marketing opportunities.

    Take advantage of the tangible benefits the co-op program can have for your business.  For instance, during 2016 a resort in northwest Ohio dramatically lowered their cost-per-acquisition by participating in the co-op paid search advertising opportunity.  Prior to participating the resort paid $350 per acquisition.  The co-op search campaign lowered their cost to just $50 per acquisition and generated over 200 bookings in the first two months!
