A sophisticated customer relationship management system (VISITS) and one of the most comprehensive and interactive travel sites on the Internet are just two reasons the Montana Office of Tourism is a recognized leader in the area of online marketing.

In order to maintain this competitive advantage the Montana Office of Tourism uses cutting-edge technologies to create state-of-the-art information dissemination systems. These systems are designed to complement Montana Promotion Division’s traditional consumer marketing efforts. Electronic marketing has proven to be a cost-effective way to disseminate timely information to Montana residents and potential visitors and will continue to play a crucial role in our marketing efforts.

The major goals of the Electronic Marketing group include working cooperatively with local communities and regions to gather information, build a comprehensive database of tourism related sites, services and events and, utilizing emerging technologies, develop innovative systems for disseminating Montana travel information.
