What is he principle of Influence Marketing in the travel industry?

It is based on generating content with an influencer and publishing it with their community. The content is what we call visual storytelling. It takes the form of pictures, videos and arcticles narrating the story of an experience. The content is distributed to a targeted audience, who will be receptive to the publication and who will share the information in turn through the viral marketing effect.

What is the advantage compared to traditional media?

The greatest advantage is that the content generated during the campaign is permanent. Influencers generate content before, during and after their trip. These publications are always accessible and easy to find online. Finally the stories generated have a very powerful human dimension because they are told in the first person by someone with whom the community has build a lasting relationship based on trust and engagement over time.
