Digital Marketing for Your US Travel Brand

When it comes to digital marketing for US travel brands, the consumer journey is just as important as the destination. Aside from complimentary snacks and beverages, today’s multi-touch, multi-device consumers want a seamless, integrated experience that makes shopping and booking a breeze: otherwise, they might jump ship. For example, 83% of leisure travelers have encountered a travel site that was not mobile optimized or friendly, and only 23% of those travelers actually pushed through1.
