Here’s an interesting take on what is innovative integrated marketing applied in today’s multi-channel world of buying. What I consider especially relevant in a tourism destination marketing context is the following part:

Web sites should be ‘lifestyle’ destinations. With today’s increased Internet use, this is an effective strategy.

I have long wondered, why there are no true “lifestyle” websites with a built in travel element, after all interest in many destinations are stimulated by what can be considered non-travel elements, such as culture, food, fashion, music etc. Prime examples would be Italy and France. It will be interesting to see if any destinations or travel sites will take this approach.
