What exactly is a Travel Influencer?

A travel influencer is someone who has a personal brand online and influences purchase behavior related to travel. Hotels, airlines, brands, and businesses recognize travel influencers as content creators and marketing vehicles with loyal social media audiences so they pay to shoot campaigns and promote their location, products and services! 

How many times have you seen a place on Instagram and thought, “Wow! I want to go there!”, started researching the destination, and booked a flight – That’s the power of an influencer.

I can tell you first hand starting my influencer journey changed my life. And starting now will change yours too. This book teaches you more than how to land collaborations, it teaches you how to build your own online empire.

Luke landed his first collaboration after buying the travel influencer handbook

“I’ve traveled around the world for just under 3 years but since COVID started of course, nothing much has happened.

I started working on my account a couple months ago and then bought The Travel Influencer Handbook and landed my first collab! The first partnership is with a hotel in my neighboring town next week in South Africa. And then was able to get a two night collab in Cairo.

Super exciting stuff, thanks so much!!”
