Creative blogging and social media is considered one of the most prolific and effective ways to build a relationship with customers, creating an opportunity for genuine and tangible interaction with your company, services, or establishment.
Let’s be real…dull advertising is for chumps these days.
Email promotions and online advertisements are extremely linear and lifeless, lacking the ability to create a deeper and more meaningful connection with people.Bloggers — We tell REAL stories and describe REAL experiences.Stories have a life of their own; a soul which people can live vicariously through and become inspired by. And advertising on a blog can build the tangible relationship that you need.
Travel bloggers build relationships with their readers, and time and time again we reference old experiences with new ones; travel journalism typically ends after it has run it’s course, including the exposure for YOU!
Why this blog?
I believe in giving people honest and entertaining articles chock full of the best information about travel companies I love, the experiences that can be had through them, and why to choose them over everyone else.
Through retina rupturing photos, captivating and hilarious travel tales, entertaining videos, and an ever-growing social media presence, Lost Boy Memoirs is a fresh voice of travel in the blogosphere ready to take over.
In the past I have done everything from going down the highest raft-able waterfall in the world, swung through a canyon 200ft in the air, and bungy jumped off a bridge whilst dunking my whole body in the water — all in one day in the name of PR.
For the imaginative types, I traveled 3 weeks with a fake camel and invented a personality in which I wrote as if I were the animal; everything from kayaking to spelunking, partying to relaxing was written through Clarence the Camel’s eyes for Nomads Hostels. Now THAT garnered quite some attention!
All of these companies have grown to trust the blogs I write for to share epic stories as nobody has done before, and give travel companies the voice they never had.
Bottom line is: I will do just about anything for an awesome adventure, a good story, and to promote an excellent company. Lost Boy Memoirs offers a very unique blog; one that is entirely hand drawn or designed from the crazy parts of my mind, one that oozes with quirky and fun personality, and is packed with helpful tips for new and experienced travelers.
