Report OverviewThe entire discipline of marketing is in the midst of a sea change. Changing consumer attitudes toward advertising, combined with the growing importance of social media, are forcing marketers to adapt to a new reality. For the travel industry, this means focusing on the creation and promotion of content, a discipline that is seeing huge increases in budgets, interest, and attention. Marketers say the inspirational appeal of such content, combined with its increased credibility, helps it succeed with travel customers. But even as content marketing becomes the travel industry’s dominant approach, lots of concerns remain about how to make and measure great content. Figuring out what type of content to create remains an open question, even as images and video continue to grow in popularity. Finding great content creators is another key challenge. Many travel marketers say they are spending more time partnering with so-called “influencers,” though doubts remain about how to measure their effectiveness and ensure high-quality results. There are also larger questions about how to measure the ROI of content marketing and where it should sit along the traditional marketing funnel, plus a growing need to localize content for new audiences in places like Asia, the Middle East, and Latin America. Because of the growing popularity of content marketing, there are nearly as many approaches to executing such programs as there are companies in the travel space. That said, several new approaches and trends in content marketing are gaining widespread appeal in 2017. Among those trends, more brands are bringing their content creation efforts in-house, more traditional travel media firms are becoming hybrid content marketing agencies, and travel brands are experimenting with old-school media formats like TV advertorials and magazines to cut through the digital clutter.
