Identifying the Right Influencers and Ambassadors

Look for individuals who are genuinely passionate about travel, lifestyle, or the specific theme of your destination. Authenticity is key in establishing a meaningful connection with their followers.
Building Relationships and Partnerships
Approach influencers and local ambassadors with a genuine interest in their work. Seek to build authentic relationships rather than one-off promotions. Engage with their content, support their endeavors, and foster a sense of camaraderie before proposing a partnership.
