Thinking of working with me? Great! My life is a road trip but my business is to inspire others to travel. Here are some ways we can work together, details about my brand and audience, and lots and lots of numbers.
audience and demographics
why partner with me
We are becoming more dependent on a virtual landscape than ever before, especially when it comes to travel. Often times when planning a trip the first step will be to conduct an online search. Other times it was a social media post that inspired the trip in the first place.
With that being said, here are four numbers I feel that make my brand at Southeastern Traveler stand out:
With a Domain Authority of 36 I have a good chance of ranking on the first page of search engine results against hefty competitors. With 14,000 Social Media Followers across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest my posts are earning at least 1,000,000 impressions per month and about 100,000 engagements. All of this combines with a decent click-through rate that brings 15,000 Unique Monthly Viewers to my website.
But these are just numbers. Numbers can be manipulated. Numbers can be lies. If you really want to know why you should work with me just ask my followers. My first social media account was ten years ago and some of my followers have been with me since then. I have a large “regulars” crowd who purposefully watches for my blog posts, high quality photos, and travel inspiration.
Inspiration is what it’s all about. It doesn’t matter how many social media followers I have or how many people visit my website. If they are not inspired by my photography, recounting of my adventures, or guides to road trips across the country then I have failed.
P.S. I don’t fail.
collaboration and services
how we can work together
Everyone has their own ways of working. These are the ways that have worked the best for me over the years. But don’t let this stop you from suggesting something new!
Media/Familiarization Tour – Invite me to visit your destination! Find a good place for me to stay, build an itinerary, and let me loose on the town. I require a minimum three days, prefer seven days, but I’ll settle on five days to explore your area.
Photography – I always slide a few photos your way after finishing a media tour, but there are others way to get my high-quality travel photography. Hire me at a day rate and set a schedule of what you would like me to shoot, or you can license the photography I captured on my own while visiting your destination.
Sponsored Post – The best way to get more of my audience to visit your online accounts is to sponsor a post I have written about your destination. You can have editorial control over the final content, up to ten no-follow links to your website and social media, a destination intro box, and much more! Each sponsored post is good for a year with the option to renew indefinitely.
Giveaway Contest – These are fun ways to get people excited about visiting your destination. The giveaways are hosted on my Facebook page, last for two weeks, and coincide with new content for my blog about your destination.
cvbs, magazines, and companies
who have i worked with
I have worked with a lot of convention & visitor bureaus, state tourism agencies, magazines, and tourism companies over the years. I’m not about to list them all, but here is a pretty good list to give you an idea of how diverse my work has been.
where can i see more
In 2019 I debuted this newly-designed website with more features and opportunity than ever before. One of the things I wanted to add to this site is a Past Campaigns sections.
In this section I will put together past campaigns I have done for CVBs, magazines, and tourism agencies. Each campaign will include links to blog posts and social media posts. There will be numbers to show how many people I reached and how many were engaged.
I will update this section as often as possible until I have all past campaigns completed. Bookmark this, come back once a week, and you’ll see some changes!
