Rural Marketing - Rural (Tourism) Marketing

How is rural tourism marketing different? How can rural tourism be used as an effective tool to remove unemployment of rural people?

Rural Tourism as a Collective Endeavour

I see rural tourism as a community industry, rather than an enterprise/corporate initiative. Saw the potential for this in South Africa, Indonesia and now again in Russia.
The rural industry (regardless of country) will give the tourist a 'native/ethnic' experience, versus a 'western' experience in a foreign country.
The opportunities for a collective offering (even in urban environments) existed during soccer world cup in South Africa, but they were never developed. The same opportunities still exist, but will require greater marketing effort as they are unable to encash on the benefits of a global event (e.g. guerilla marketing).
