Social media and its various platforms continue to provide its users with new experiences. Allowing individuals to live through others, through various tweets and videos. Social media is becoming a new avenue for traveling and vacation ideas.
Individuals and company’s both have the opportunity to use these platforms to either share their vacations or show potential customers a dream trip. Brands can also influence potential customers as they research their potential vacations. Humorous posts nudging readers toward taking vacations, posting breathtaking images, interacting with consumers who reach out, and creating brand advocates are all great ways to engage users and potentially push them toward your brand.
Individuals now have the ability to share unique trips and give viewers an inside look to trips that most individuals will never get the opportunity to take. Adrian Ballinger and Cory Richards are a perfect example, as they plan on climbing Everest without any bottled oxygen, while documenting the entire thing on Snapchat.
Anyone with a Snapchat can follow them through their account @EverestNoFilter and see regular updates of what it takes to climb the world’s largest mountain. Their stories consist of everything from the substantial amount of snow falling on them to the PopTarts they are eating as a snack. Allowing many enthusiasts with real time updates of the struggles and tribulations of the hike.
With this easily accessible technology everyone will be able to see and share their trips with the world. If you have an itch for traveling look to these social media platforms to help best plan your next trip.
