What's Your Destination?


Do you know where you're headed? Maybe you need some fresh ideas — a bit of inspiring travel content. Perhaps a new strategy for connecting with travelers via social media. Why should you contact Mark, of all people?

Consider this:

• Mark knows how to connect with audiences. He recently made two presentations at the New York Travel Festival (watch the video of his consumer travel presentation and also his travel industry presentation) and also presented at LGBT Confex, an international tourism convention in Mexico (watch that presentation here). 

• When CrowdCompass, Cvent and Meetings & Conventions Magazine needed a freelance moderator to host a special Webinar, "Capitalize on the Evolution of Mobile Technology," they called Mark. Casa de Campo made the same choice when they needed a moderator for a special webinar about bringing the sporting life to meetings

• When Brocade, the networking solutions company, and Sanborn Media Factory, the multimedia marketing agency, were hankering for a voice to bring new life to their services, they chose Mark to do the voiceover

• Mark has been working with the U.S. Travel Association for nearly a decade, producing strategic content to promote and support its annual IPW (formerly International Pow Wow), the nation's largest tourism convention. And when the World Travel & Tourism Council needed a writer to create attention-getting, up-to-the-minute on-site content at its first-ever Americas Summit, they hired Mark. 

• When the Mexico Tourism Board and Northstar Travel Media, the nation's largest travel trade publisher, needed to create multi-platform copy and engaging content to spark renewed interest in the destination and combat negative press, they hired Mark — and he continues to produce high-quality custom content for both entities.

• When American Express Custom Publishing was in search of a seasoned writer, editor and project manager to handle content for its Travel Insights Website, which targeted its top-level Centurion "black card" members, they hired Mark. Twice.

• When Orbitz Worldwide needed fresh, concise online content to drive traffic and build sales in the business travel sector, they hired Mark (the articles he wrote over his one-year gig, in fact, consistently ranked among the most-viewed original content on the entire site).

• When the owners of the stylish new boutique hotel El Ganzo in Los Cabos needed a unique voice for its Website debut, they hired Mark to write copy that lived up to the decidedly cool hotel's ambiance. He came up with all the copy you see on El Ganzo's Website

• According to the Internet analytics site Alexa.com, Mark's own blog — LatinFlyer.com — now outranks long-established media including Business Traveler, Business Travel News, Premier Traveler and Vacation Agent Magazine, in terms of U.S. rankings for Web visits. It also ranks very closely to TravelAge West in U.S. visits, and beats most of the travel trade sites in Latin America in terms of global visits. If Mark can accomplish this all by himself with one blog, imagine what he can do for you!

Whether it's copywriting, custom content, social media management or insightful travel writing, Mark is ready to help you reach your next destination.
