The other day I was scrolling through the Instagram page of a friend who is an avid traveler and blogger. A few photographs of the Alps got me completely bowled over. From that moment, I started searching for the best vacation plans to the Swiss Alps that could fulfill my Summer holidays. This should be the effect of great travel images. According to 32% marketers, visual content proved to be the most important form of content for the promotion process, blog posts being second to that. Sharing them on social media should attract travel enthusiasts like the “Pied Piper”. It is especially true for the travel business.

All the different graphics and other types of visual documents you use for social sharing build the backbone of your travel agency. Your business is not selling air tickets, bed & breakfast, tents, or vacation packages. It is selling the experience to cherish a lifetime. So, great images and visual documents created with them are the mirrors that engage your targets. To sell a great travel experience, you need to share it first. Hooking social media users is the key to success. If your archive doesn’t have a full stock of great images, use stock images from the internet, put them on document templates, and share them on social media.

Design a Beautiful Travel Logo

A logo is an impactful medium that is the foundation of your brand identity and thus helps in brand recognition. Most travelers will prefer booking their travel destination with agencies they trust. And your travel brand logo helps establish that credibility. Design a timeless logo that communicates the travel spirit and makes travelers choose your brand to enjoy their holidays.

DocHipo provides a wide range of appealing logo templates for your travel business. Choose the one that reflects your brand and its offers, and customize it to make it memorable and unique, just like your brand is.

Put the call to action for your destination marketing smartly and wait with an angler’s patience for travel enthusiasts to connect. Your job is done. 

You have to make the experience of traveling come alive right before the eyes of social media users. Your weapons are self-owned and user-generated content. By content, I mean written content or travel blogs too. Share effective user-generated content but rely on creating your posts too. 

Ideally, your posts should be accompanied by authentic travel photographs. Filtering images a bit here and there shouldn’t be a problem. The more beautiful you make the images, the more they attract curious pairs of eyes. In short, you should use destination images that make the trip come alive right before readers’ eyes.

What if You Tap the Offline Market with Travel Magazines?

Yeah, I know people frequently resort to travel blogs for information. Even I do so. But some people still have apprehensions about making payments to a blogger’s account for booking rooms or trip vehicles. That apprehension recedes to see payment details and business addresses on prints. So, try travel magazines for that section of prospects with orthodox ideas. 

You can publish a travel magazine with useful information. If you can publish beautiful travel photographs and interesting and useful articles in that magazine, its circulation will gain momentum. As a result, your tours and travel company will be able to make a mark in the industry. So, publishing a magazine with great travel graphics, information and a gorgeous cover doesn’t seem to be a wasted investment. Designing magazine covers is a tricky job. So, you can use templates like the one given below.

Win Prospects with Inspiring Travel Videos

Wyzowl found out that 66% of consumers actually collect information by watching videos and prefer that to reading about your service.

If you have travel videos in your archive, make them undergo a seamless editing process. There are plenty of video editing tools available online. It does not cost you much other than a little time. So, take the support of technology, make your videos look interesting, and upload them to social sites for video sharing.

How many travel videos are you watching every day? Watch more and more such videos. Gain inspiration from widely viewed and shared travel videos. It will become easier for you to create such videos more often for your users. You must show your visitors a place, frame-by-frame, through your eyes. That is how you sell a beautiful traveling experience.  

Many trip organizers might have plans for Maldives tours. However, yours must be the most eligible plan for a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Your video should vouch for that.
