All-Travel, a member of Signature Travel Network, has been awarded TravelAge West’s Trendsetter Award for Best Use of Social Media. The award was given to All-Travel’s David Van Ness, Vice President, Marketing, and Dave Goodman, Marketing Director, during the TravelAge West Wave Awards Dinner last month at the Four Seasons Hotel Los Angeles at Beverly Hills.
The award was presented to All-Travel for demonstrating both an innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that allows them to adapt to new business landscapes, which is fundamental to the ever-changing and dynamic travel industry.
Eric Maryanov, President of All-Travel, attributes their success to their efforts in building a community that brings together travel tips, vacation ideas, special offers on both land and cruise vacations, like Apple Vacations, Club Med and Crystal Cruises, and more by encouraging interaction directly with the All-Travel staff through social media channels.
“A large amount of fans interact with our postings and give us feedback, which is very important and great to see. We set out not just to put out our offers and specials, but rather to serve as an online resource for those looking to travel. Yes, we want to sell them travel, but we knew that was the wrong direction in the social media world. In this case, we want to be an inspiring friend, not a storefront. We want to introduce new destinations and travel tips and inspire people that traveling is one of the most rewarding experiences in life. And when they’re ready to purchase it, we want them to think of us immediately,” says Maryanov.
As a result of All-Travel’s social media efforts, revenue, in addition to customer loyalty, brand awareness and fan base, has measurably increased in just a few months.
