Celebrating The Best Mommy Bloggers, Instagrammers, & YouTube Channels

Mothers are powerful figures, both as the matriarchs of our families and as engaging bloggers and top social media influencers who use their platforms (traditional blogs, Instagram accounts, YouTube channels, or a combination of platforms, networks, and apps) to give advice to and influence the decisions of millions of other family-oriented social media users. Because mothers tend to make the majority of household purchasing decisions—in 2015, eMarketer reported that moms make around 80% of purchasing decisions, accounting for $3.1 trillion in spending—collaborating with the best mommy bloggers and family-focused social media influencers provides the best way for brands to reach this 85-million-strong consumer demographic (Pew Research).

Travel Marketing & Digital Influencers: A Perfect Match

Popular adventure publication Outside Magazine recently published a piece entitled "The Big Business of Adventure on Instagram" wherein the article's author, Grayson Schaffer, describes the popularity of today's top Instagrammers or Instagram influencers (the names for Instagram's most-followed and/or most popular content creators) as "a seismic shift in the media world: the rise of individuals as brands unto themselves." Though Schaffer's article focuses primarily on the Instagram influencer revolution as it pertains to adventure sports, he hints at how the prevalence of digital influencers in mainstream culture is affecting travel marketing as a whole.

Because more and more consumers are taking social cues (including where and how to travel) from popular social media stars, travel brands—from airlines to national tourism departments to hospitality companies and major hotel chains—are revamping their marketing strategies and reallocating advertising budgets toward the development and implementation of influencer marketing partnerships and campaigns.Read More>>
