Our Methodology

There are many ways in which we’re able to produce outstanding content.

Firstly by assembling a dedicated and talented editorial team with a passion for travel and creating inspiring and beautiful stories that delight readers.

In addition, our team is also adept at understanding that each client is unique and, as such, face unique challenges in the marketplace, because of this, we’re able to create bespoke content that reaches your target audience with pin-point accuracy.

Every project we do follows our 8 step methodology:

1. Content briefing and strategy

Within this, we consider:
What are the objectives?
How is success measured (is that the right measure)?
Competitor analysis and strategy recommendation

Confirming the metrics by which success is measured

3. Content calendar

What content and when is it to be published?

4. Content creation

5. Content publication

High quality content optimised for the platform delivered to the right channels, at the right time

6. Content amplification

Our Services

Content campaigns partnering with the leading travel publishing brands

All branded content is designed with the same high standards as our editorial assets, this means everything is reader-focused, honest, well-researched, and reliable. Our editors work on the content with the same attention to detail and care as they do for all content published under our brands. While they retain editorial control and sign off, our editors work with clients to create a suite of editorial we are confident readers will enjoy and adheres to our brand values of connecting people to unique experiences.

Content for Clients to publish

We work directly with clients to deliver content that will engage they’re customers and potential customers and move them to take positive steps along the path to purchase.

The initial phase is to decide on the style of content required including which medium; text, photography, video or audio.

We then optimise all content for the distribution medium, whether that be social media, blogs, print, broadcast, podcast.

Finally we establish the metrics for success and the ongoing performance measurement framework.

The projects are managed by the Australian Traveller Media project and editorial team.
