Clickside Digital Communications’ client “Sunshine Village Ski & Snowboard Resort” wins coveted 2013 SAMMY Award from Ski Area Management magazine.

BEST ALL-AROUND SOCIAL MEDIA EXECUTION: SUNSHINE VILLAGE, ALBERTA
Two years removed from a major social media fail, Sunshine Village really gets it. With 51,000 Facebook fans, 15,000 Twitter fans, 302,143 YouTube views, and 1,500 Google+ followers, Sunshine is doing a lot right. Any social media channel they are on, they optimize and use it to the fullest. And in all instances, Sunshine shows off its snow with rulers and familiar or funny objects.

It uses eye-catching graphics and treats the page with the same care and attention that they would a glossy brochure. When not posting new images, the area posts videos—mini movies that seem carefully thought out, yet spontaneous at the same time. And the cover photo features a “Sunshiners of the Day.” Plus, the area takes advantage of every Facebook app space to promote or encourage a purchase. —S.R.
