Conceptualization: We’ll start with a personalized consultation about your destination, determining your needs, including the markets you want to reach and the stories you want to tell, to create an outline for creating your destination’s one-of-a-kind press kit.
Compelling storytelling: LRC’s team and network of professional travel and lifestyle writers, produce content in the traditional and “new media” style, making it easy and attractive for editors and writers to use the materials. Sometimes, a simple cut and paste from your Travel Media Press Room is all it takes for a writer or editor to turn your content into a published story.
Dynamic photography: Keeping fresh, professional quality high- and low-resolution, captioned and credited images in front of the media also drastically increases the opportunities your destination will have for coverage. Editors and writers tell us finding good photos for illustrating their stories is often the difference between a mention and a full-on feature. (and that accessing these photos in the correct format is a number one frustration? Just send us images to populate your media room with or we can arrange for and manage a professional photo shoot customized to your needs.
