The Eternal City of Rome is crowded with publicized monuments, fountains, columns and ruins. You can’t walk the streets of Rome without accidentally tripping on something ancient every so often while trying to follow the tourist map in your hand,
working your way through piazzas connected by cobble stone, enjoying your gelato.

How to Choose the Best Marketing Type for Your Business

Hello All!

Welcome or welcome back, depending.  This week I’d like to expand on a subject we touched on before.  My first blog focused on creating a marketing schedule for the year to help you grow your business.  In that blog I asked you to include all of your marketing efforts for the year (direct, social, etc.).  And although making sure that you have a game plan  is great, I’ve still done you a disservice.   Because the fact of the matter is not all marketing is for everyone.  So to optimize your success you really need to focus your advertising based on a few factors.

Dominica was founded in 1493 by Christopher Columbus, who named it after the Latin for Sunday – the day of the week the country was discovered.   It is located in the Eastern Caribbean and is quite tiny -only 290 square miles.  Dominica’s main industry is the export of bananas; however they are trying to build their tourism industry.  So get to this up and coming vacation destination before it becomes a crowded tourist mecca.

You Want Me to Send Them Where? Or How to Become a Travel Rockstar by Sending Clients Where No One Else is Going: Part 2

Last week we looked at Bhutan (in the Himalayas).  This week is Kiribati’s turn.

Kiribati (pronounced Kir-ĭ-bahss) is a group of 33 coral atolls separated into groups –the Gilbert Islands, the Phoenix Islands and the Line Islands.  If you’re planning on sending your clients there, I would suggest doing so soon, since climate change (whether you believe in it or not), dwindling fresh water reserves, overpopulation and pollution are all driving the island closer to extinction.  Also be prepared, the island as a whole is poor so your clients should expect to see a lot of people living in poverty.  Despite these issues, Kiribati has plenty of positive experiences to offer visitors.
