Travel Social Networks - Help Travelers Find Your Website

Social networks and online communities are the hottest trend in the industry. They allow you to grow your traffic economically by using viral marketing to create a community of travelers who promote your destination or travel service. Social networks also help to increase your search engine visibility, because Google, Yahoo, and MSN favor websites with frequently updated content. User generated content (like reviews and message boards) is a tremendous asset, because it enables your website to sustain itself.

A Turn-key Social Network Solution - You Have Full Control

One of the challenges with social networking involves controlling what the general consumer is saying about your travel brand. Travel Spike has solved that problem by offering destinations and other travel companies the ability to have their own social network within their own website!

Travel Spike empowers you to monitor and manage your social network to limit negative comments. You can steer discussions in a positive direction and generate some buzz about your destination or brand. You can offer a prize for the visitor who posted the most pictures from their vacation in your destination. You can even offer incentives to consumers who wrote great stories about their trip to your destination.

Travel Spike has spent the last 3 years creating the best social networking tools on the market. We can integrate them with your website and allow your site visitors to participate in your new online community. We also have the ability to personalize your social network so that your visitors can learn about interests like Wine, Golf, Family Travel, Skiing, Dining, etc.

"We did not have the internal resources to increase our online exposure, so we brought in the social media experts at Travel Spike. Their Web 2.0 team was able to get us a presence on hundreds of new social sites, blogs and search engines that we never appeared on. We look forward to doing even more with Travel Spike down the road."

“Before we hired the social media experts at Travel Spike, we only had a Facebook Fan page with 34 fans and no Twitter account. A few months later thanks to them, we now have 744 high quality fans and 3,176 Twitter followers. Sofitel's Miami Twitter account is today among the top 100 Twitter accounts with the most followers in Miami and it gained 20 places within the last 2 weeks. We owe this success to Travel Spike and we would not have been able to get such good results without them.

Travel Spike is very proactive and trustworthy regarding posting information about our property online, which results in an enormous gain of time for us. We value their true interest for the results they produce as they always follow up on every tweet or post.”
