I recently returned from a trip to Veracruz, Mexico for the Adventure Travel Mexico conference, where I was honored to be a speaker discussing “How to use bloggers to help build and leverage your brand”. I spoke to a packed house that included international delegates, tour operators and tourist boards from the many different regions of Mexico. I was supposed to “speak slowly” for the Spanish translation, however, I was nervous, spoke quickly, and actually used the word “ginormous” during my presentation, which I’m not sure exactly how that got translated! Hahahaha! But, the rest of the presentation went over well, and it was great to not only work alongside fellow travel bloggers Matthew Karston and Kraig Becker, but to speak with an engaged audience who were looking for ways to help build their business by forming personal relationships with bloggers.
During my talk, I covered 3 personal, real-world examples of how different companies have used my services to help leverage their brand, including my work with the Bulgarian Ministry of Tourism and tour operator, Odysseia-IN, Seattle’s InnerSea Discoveries UN-Cruise in Alaska, and Red Sustainable Travel in Baja California Sur, Mexico.
Looking forward to forging new connections and working on more exciting projects in the future. Stay tuned!
