- WSI Internet Franchisee, Andre’ Savoie, Works In Concert With Non-Profit Organization to recoup Tourism in Louisiana -
Toronto, Ontario, March 24, 2011 - Andre’ Savoie, an on-line Marketing Consultant with WSI, the world’s largest Internet franchise, worked with Louisiana Tourism Coastal Coalition (LTCC) to help the organization increase tourism following the BP oil spill accident in April 2010. By establishing an integrated social media marketing strategy for the non-profit organization, Andre’s’ objective was to help reduce tourism losses resulting from the oil spill along Louisiana’s coastal neighborhood.
Andre’ Savoie, WSI Consultant based in New Orleans (, says, “The oil spill affected a number of businesses across several coastal communities in the United States, Louisiana being one of them. The vision behind the Louisiana Tourism Coastal Coalition is to rebuild the reputation of the fishing and tourism industries that were heavily impacted due to this disaster. With my Internet franchise office located in New Orleans, this initiative was close to home for me. Therefore, I was honored to collaborate with this non-profit organization to implement an Internet marketing program that will help rebuild tourism in Louisiana”.
The organization, which already had a website (, started dealing with WSI to launch an integrated digital marketing campaign, which included social media consulting, split A/B message testing as well as the creation of custom social media profiles for Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and Flickr. Additionally, WSI developed and constantly handles the company’s blog where they publish regular posts about fishing and tourism possibilities in the region (
Part of WSI’s Internet marketing system included generating targeted traffic to the organization’s web properties using powerful, keyword-focused pay-per-click campaigns. Regional based ads were developed to market fishing and tourism, and conversion architecture-based landing pages specified to convert the traffic. To nurture the relationships developed online, WSI also implemented a monthly email marketing program for the LTCC.

“As a result of WSI’s efforts, the Louisiana Tourism Coastal Coalition has gone from having no social media presence to building their Facebook and Twitter networks to 500 friends and 400 followers respectively within 3 months,” says Andre’ Savoie. “Our marketing efforts have also resulted in almost 1,000 video views on their YouTube channel. Traffic to their company blog surpassed traffic to their website during the month of February, and WSI’s PPC campaign has generated more than triple the traffic they received over last month”.
“With the expertise and guidance of WSI, our social media experience has truly transformed from a world of confusion to success,” says Kristin McLaren Mickal, Executive Director of Louisiana Tourism Coastal Coalition. “Although we understand the importance of social media, WSI calmed the waters of the Internet ocean and made it easily navigable”.
