June 2018, Atlanta, GA: Spyhop received recognition from the Hospital Marketing Nationals with two top industry awards—the Gold Award for Best Television Campaign and the Gold Award for Best Print Campaign—for Medium, Small and Rural hospitals nationwide. Both campaigns were produced for Effingham Health System.
New York, NY: Savannah Hauntings, a web series produced for Visit Savannah, received a Platinum Adrian Award for Digital Marketing at the Hospitality Sales and Marketing Association awards gala in New York City. This coveted award recognizes the most effective global marketing campaigns for major travel and hospitality brands.
Spyhop teamed up with Visit Savannah to launch a Holiday marketing campaign that helped the tourism marketer make Swift.com’s “Top 10 Travel Destinations on Social Media” list (Oct 2014).
“It’s interesting to note that Travel Oregon and Discover Los Angeles were knocked out of the top ten by the smaller visit Brussels and Visit Savannah…Visit Savannah published 25 videos on YouTube in October — nearly quadrupling its monthly production rate — beating Visit Florida’s 24 videos per month average. Most of the videos promoted Savannah’s Festival of Lights and the winter holiday season, a month ahead of schedule.”

Spyhop’s “Tacos & Coffee” received Convene Magazine’s BEST IN SHOW Destination Video honors. Watch the video.
From Convene: “What are three things you don’t necessarily think of together? Okay, probably lots of combinations — but “tacos, coffee, and Savannah” is particularly out there. Which is what makes Visit Savannah’s video so much fun. Part of #TrendingSavannah, a series of culinary-themed videos, “Tacos & Coffee” profiles Foxy Loxy Café, which serves … well, take a guess. “First, we wanted to expand people’s knowledge about our culinary experiences,” said Jeremy Harvey, vice president of communications and marketing for Visit Savannah. “We’re well known for our awesome Southern and coastal (seafood) cuisine, so this video gave us a chance to highlight some creative offerings outside of those more well-known options. Second, we were hoping to expand the experience of a Savannah visit to outside the traditional ‘historic district’ boundary. Foxy Loxy Café is in an area south of our historic district’s southern border of Forsyth Park, in an area called the Starland District, and we want visitors to extend their visit by going off the beaten path a bit. Third, we are looking to attract Millennials and other younger demographic visitors, so this video focusing on those regulars [at Foxy Loxy] and coffee/tacos worked well to tell the story of where locals who fit that demographic like to hang.”
Visit Savannah received the top Georgia honor for Tourism Marketing Initiative from Governor Nathan Deal during the 2015 Georgia Tourism Conference. We were excited to learn from Visit Savannah that it was the brand video content campaign that earned them the Governor’s Paul Broun Award!
One more example of how top marketers are looking at video as the marketing medium of the future.
