Influencer Marketing continues to be a great marketing tactic in 2020. It's a hybrid between content marketing, celebrity endorsements, and word-of-mouth marketing.
Brands can especially benefit from collaborating with travel influencers. Top travel influencers have million subscribers on Instagram and inspire their audience. Traveling more and crossing places off our bucket lists' are things that almost everyone aspires to do in their lifetimes.
Travel Influencers are some of the few people who actually accomplish this mission.
Their stunning pictures of gorgeous places around the world capture our "wanderlusting" hearts. They pull us in to watch their adventures unfold. They pull us into engaging with their content while triggering our own travel or lifestyle dreams.
Some of us consider travel as a hobby. Some need to travel for work. And others have even quit their jobs. They left everything behind to give in to their passion for discovering the beautiful world around us.
Regardless, every travel influencer has the power to reach a wide audience of "adventure-seekers". They leverage their passion to influence others to do the same.
Here are the top 15 travel influencers and hashtags your business will find on the Fourstarzz platform.
