Cooperative Assets

It takes time and investment to build a library of quality video and photography assets, and we take pride in avoiding stock photography and utilizing authentically Oxnard imagery. Visit Oxnard contracts ad campaign video shoots and photo shoots throughout the year to tell the story of our destination through our tourism partners. Already have high-quality photography? Share your existing assets with us so that we can share them to our channels and promote your business.

Marketing Strategy

Curious to know how we do it? Each year, we prepare a carefully curated, data-driven annual Marketing Plan to identify markers for success. Within the Marketing Plan, we detail the personas of our target audiences and define our strategy for leading them through the conversion funnel. That means more consumers coming to town with purchasing profiles in alignment with your business offerings.

Performance Metrics

Each year, we present the City of Oxnard with a recap on our performance. The Visit Oxnard Annual Report reviews how our multi-channel approach played out for the year, travel impact stats and projections for the coming year. Data, data and more data on how we’re driving visitation to the community and local businesses!

Crisis Communications

As destination leaders, we have to be prepared for the unthinkable – and in a crisis, be ready to step out of our traditional role. Prepared with guidance from “Playbook: Crisis Readiness and Response” by U.S. Travel Association, the Visit Oxnard Crisis Communications Plan is a living document created to guide our team through an emergency. Know that you can rely upon us to communicate with visitors (and residents) in an emergency – we’ve planned for it!
