My Personal experiences and tips

I have 3 Decades of rich experience in the Tourism Field and am passionate about Marketing.

“I write about various destinations based on my experience and share marketing tips which can be used by Small to Medium companies without breaking the Bank.”

With Marketing It is possible to 10X your Small to Medium Business in as little as 1 Year. You just need the right Tools and the right approach and the right “PROCESSES”

A Travel Company that is struggling today needs to ask itself a Simple Question

Why is it, that the OTA’s that didn’t exist a few years ago are leaders today?

What are they doing right?

They have a Process and a Plan, the Marketing Tools and Automation. Scaling up your Business today is all about having the right tools in place. Your customers not only expect it they demand it.

I also concult small to medium companies largely in the Hospitality space to help them grow.
