You may have noticed that there is a new initiative promoting the distinctive culture and heritage of our area: Welcome to Finland (wtfinland.com). Welcome to Finland is meant to be Finland MN’s version of a local chamber of commerce, with a particular focus on building the online and social media presence of our unique community. Finland MN is made up of people who are proud to live here and be part of this community and its heritage. Welcome to Finland’s goal is to attract people who want to learn about and/or reconnect with our local culture and community. Wtfinland.com is about claiming our narrative in the digital world so that we attract people who are interested in the unique experience Finland, MN has to offer.
Though only recently launched, blog and Facebook posts have been very popular, reaching tens of thousands of people, and there are plans for many creative ways to promote our area online. Welcome to Finland is excited to have the support of a growing number of local businesses and organizations, as well as a Culture and Tourism grant through the IRRRB. In collaboration, we can help get the word out online about the great things that happen in our area throughout the year. Look for more info at wtfinland.com and www.facebook.com/wtfinland/ .
