New Video Travel Guides Are Changing The Way Consumers Plan Trips

Share Article

Prior to any official announcement the traffic on began growing at over 100% per week. This tremendous "unintentional" growth demonstrates the high demand for better travel planning resources online.

This is truly an exciting experience

Travel planning has become much easier with the evolution of the internet and the numerous online resources. To date however, most online travel guides have continued to present material in the form of text and pictures. While a picture may be worth a thousand words, it's power pales in comparison to watching an online video.

"By initially developing a Free Video Travel Guide web site using video resources already available online, we are able to add several locations each day and quickly ramp up content" says Video Marketing Consultant Michael Peterson. Once the initial backbone of video content is in place the plan is to begin hiring human editors with knowledge of each destination. These editors will blend the videos with creative content and provide unique insights to each travel destination.

Each major travel destination will have it's own mini-portal featuring Hotel, Restaurant and Entertainment reviews blended with video content. Editors will also be able to direct visitors to specific videos that they find particularly useful for planning your stay. In most cases, you will be able to fully investigate your entire vacation prior to booking your arrangements. Being able to do this from a single comprehensive web site will save consumers both time and frustration.

"This is truly an exciting experience", says Peterson. "I have always enjoyed the travel industry and have been looking for a way to be part of it. Now with the apparent success of our design, I will be dedicating more of my time as well as company resources to the project."

Additonal mini-portals are planned that will feature videos of tourist attractions from each travel destination. The Florida Tourist Attractions web site for example contains over 30 destinations outside of Disney World or Universal Studios which are covered on the main site. Additional "Tourist Attraction" web sites are currently being built for New York City, Washington DC, Chicago, Philadelphia and any other destinations where consumer research patterns uncover a need.

As each week passes and especially once human editors start coming onboard in September, the depth of the travel content will continue to grow exponentially along with traffic levels. After all the major tourist destinations are covered the intention is to include hundreds of smaller destinations that the majority of travel sites overlook. There are an abundance of interesting places to visit in this world and the goal of this Video Travel Guide is to allow you to truly experience each of these destinations before you ever leave home.
