3 Simple Steps To Be A #DowntownBrockville Ambassador

 

 

1) An ambassador doesn't mean you have to be an expert
Even if you visit downtown every day that doesn't mean you'll have all the answers to tourists' questions! The most important thing is you know where to find the information. If you're ever stuck with a question, direct people to the tourism office (corner of Water St. and Market St. W). Even if you can answer their question, it's still a good spot to let them know about!
 
2) It all starts with you doing a good deed
Maybe you see someone who looks lost, overhear a conversation in a restaurant, or a tourist may even approach you! By positively engaging with tourists, it makes them feel more welcome and comfortable sharing our beautiful city! This encourages them to be repeat visitors. 
 
3) Share your experiences!
Talk to neighbours, friends, out of town relatives and anyone who will listen about the positive experiences you've had at downtown businesses and why you love to visit the downtown as a whole.
 
Talk online as well! Reviewing businesses on their social media pages, or platforms like TripAdvisor, helps other potential customers decide if that's the right business for them! 90% of customers value online reviews as highly as personal recommendations.
 
You can also make your own post about downtown and downtown businesses on social media! The more you share the more people care! Make sure to use #DowntownBrockville if you're on Instagram or Twitter, we love seeing and sharing your posts!
