The demand for an effective Canada Travel Influencer continues to grow and evolve, so too are the number and ways in which tourism, travel and adventure brands partner with influencers to promote their services and products. However, all influencers are not what they seem, so do your research. Many have inflated followers and boast false claims. Here in Canada, the Canada Adventure Seekers, are one group of influencers who produce good results on search engines and social media.
A travel influencer, in its traditional form, is an Internet personality that creates social media content about travel, tourism, adventure and culture. Their created content is considered a resource of knowledge, expertise therefore influencing their readers' opinions and perceptions of places to stay and things to do. However, the Canada Adventure Seekers provide their influencing skills to more than just social media, they position on first pages of search engines and publish content on a national award winning website.

Content marketing can target specific groups and tourism markets that your website cannot. Content marketing in the travel industry can significantly contribute to bookings and reservations while helping you set your brand apart from competitors. This, and many more reasons, is why it's one of the most sought-after tourism industry marketing services.
A Canada Adventure Seeker is a step up the chain of travel influencers because they have better distribution channels, better training (every month they meet for training on new technology and techniques) and better long term results. Content created by Seekers provides allot more eyes on your brand and for a longer period of time. Most Canada travel influencers, write an article and post it on a social media channel. One and done. This is not the mantra of a Canada Adventure Seeker.
