Blog, Blog and Then Blog Some Moreā€¦

Producing Information

One of the biggest forms of web traffic in 2019 is through the pursuit of informational content. By providing a blog for your product (whether an agency, product or service), you will be drawing potential customers towards you! Plus, it makes your brand look like a travel extraordinaire!

Successful Travel Blogs

Parking at Airports is a good example of an online travel related business that has incorporated a blog into their site in order to gain some traffic!

Other Examples

Never Ending Footsteps is another good example, as well as Goats On The Road!
Taking a look at other travel blogs, the content that they write about and the searches that they are ranking for in search engines will help you to build a better blog for your own company!

Visual Marketing

Wow Them With Visuals

Marketing a travel-related business is always going to rely heavily on visual marketing. People want to see beautiful places, so show them some!

Travel Photos

There is a huge demand for beautiful travel photos online. Make sure you are always using high quality photos. If you can take your own then even better!

Travel Videos

Creating a travel video is another great way to score some stellar marketing. High quality videos are disseminated easily and are hugely popular, and if they feature your product then you may just be in for a treat!

Research, Research, and Research...

If you are selling a new travel suitcase then make sure that you know all the ins and out of your product. If you are selling an ebook about travelling to France then make sure you have fact checked and memorised your information.
