Did You Know These 7 Types Of Indian Travel Influencers?
Different types of people have different takes on traveling. Some like to stick to local places, some like being adventurous, while some just want to book a hostel in the mountains for a month and have the hills as the backdrop for their laptop. Traveling is a gateway to stress relief. But picking places to travel to, setting the budget, matching up to it without compromising the quality of your experience, can in fact add to the stress. In that case, these travel influencers on Instagram will help you sort everything.
From travel agencies to travel influencers
Before travel influencers or bloggers, there were travel agencies, some highly textual websites, and old school pamphlets that helped us made out travel plans. The Gen x and millennials know what we are talking about, right?
The rise of influencer marketing and social media platforms brought these travel influencers in the limelight. They make it possible for us to make our travel plans without involving a third-party. Sure, there are exclusive advantages to going in groups through travel agencies even today. But unlike 2 decades ago when it was the only resort, today, it’s an option and a matter of convenience for most.
What do travel influencers do?
We have all wrapped our heads around the modern day idea of ‘Build a career that you do not need a vacation from’ and believe that this is the philosophy of becoming a travel influencer in India or abroad. But in fact, to become a social media influencer or especially a travel influencer means that you are always working. You have ditched the regular 9 to 5 to work around the clock.
Travel influencers collaborate with brands that are relevant to their niche. That’s one way for them to be able to afford a lifestyle that revolves around travel. Aside from that, they also collaborate with properties in the travel industry like airlines, hotels, restaurants, etc.
Collaborations and sponsorships are how social media influencers make money. But every travel blogger does not necessarily have a full-time job as an influencer. During the pandemic, remote working enabled anyone to become a travel influencer while working full-time.
This increased the diversity in this niche of influencer marketing. No wonder why we have so many types of travelers today.
