Now all you need is to meet, and have that first date, and the rest can, and will, be history. Are we talking about dating here? Or are we talking inbound marketing? One could argue - what’s the difference? Ok, yes they aren’t the same thing, but if we consider, for a moment, the similarities between the two, perhaps the path to achieving inbound marketing success will be clearer.

Your Property: ‘On Fleek’ With Millennials

What’s an 11 letter word, beginning with an “M” leaves many advertisers clueless? Millennials. The group of young adults currently between the ages of 18-34.

“Oh Snap” – Why the Hospitality Industry Needs to be on Snapchat

In the ever-changing world of social media there is a driving new force on the street that hoteliers shouldn't ignore, and that platform is Snapchat.

Content vs. PR. Is There a Battle Brewing in the Travel Industry?
