Slow adventures

SMEs improved marketing skills

The SAINT project developed new marketing models that enabled SMEs to more effectively market their services. Due to the increasing popularity of social media, SMEs were trained in how to use digital marketing to promote their services. Through collaboration and visiting each other, businesses were able to develop new products and increased their competitiveness. In total, 53 collaborative products were developed and are available on the SAINT´s webpage. SAINT also prepared a guide for SMEs to show how to create and narrate slow adventure tourism products.

Syötteen Eräpalvelu

Participation in SAINT has created new ideas in the development of more slow content for Syötteen Eräpalvelu products including activities such as cold water swimming, tree breathing, foraging and cooking outdoors with customers. These have been spin offs from networking through SAINT. Inspired by the slow ideology, I have taken courses to become a tree breathing instructor and have already offered this new product to my customers.
