About

Our influencer marketing network is made up of more than 100 popular travel bloggers with a strong social media fan base, but we are not some venture-funded faceless database. We are a group of passionate travelers who bring enthusiasm to everything we write, led by three veteran industry leaders.

The three principal partners in the 360┬░ Travel Network have more than 45 years of travel writing, editing, and blogging experience between them. They frequently appear in the media as travel experts. They fixtures as speakers and panelists at travel industry conferences in North America, Asia, and Europe. They serve on the advisory boards of industry groups and in key positions to be networking with the top travel bloggers on a regular basis.

In short, these three influential editors can get your brand, travel service, or destination in front of the right readers on a regular basis over a sustained period by being your ambassadors and influencers. They will coordinate coverage with multiple other travel blogs, increasing your reach, your traffic, and your customers while saving you valuable time.
