Destination Marketing that Inspires and Motivates

Catchy slogans set to kitschy music and travel brochures that only list facts are a thing of the past when it comes to destination marketing. Today’s travelers want something more. They want to feel a connection to the destination beyond what they can pull up on their smartphone. They don’t want facts and figures. They want to hear the stories… and get an authentic look at all you have to offer. That’s where we make a difference. McD Marketing paints such a true picture of your destination that people not only come visit, they start seeing themselves living and working there, too.
