Work with Me

Working with We3Travel

We3Travel caters to families looking for inspiration and guidance when planning and preparing for family vacations. Through trip reports, sample itineraries, reviews, travel tips, and trip planning services, we hope to help families answer the question — where should we go next and how?

In addition to We3Travel, Tamara is also the producer and co-host of the weekly family travel podcast, Vacation Mavens. Each week, the Mavens discuss their current travel and interview either a destination specialist or family travel expert to offer travel inspiration and tips to get families out the door.

Tamara is also a contributing writer and Independent Travel Advisor for Ciao Bambino!, a luxury family travel website and Virtuoso travel agency.

Marketing & PR

I am happy to accept press releases or pitches about travel products, destinations, or programs geared toward family travel. Just keep in mind that I only write articles about products and destinations that I have experience with directly. However, I may share your news or event on social media so please provide appropriate links.

Press Trips

My goal is to provide useful information to families planning vacations; including suggestions on where to go, what to do, where to stay and places to eat in areas. Therefore, I am interested in participating in familiarization trips to review properties, destinations or attractions with a focus on family travel.

We prefer to travel as a family when possible, but group media trips are an option. Our coverage typically includes at least one post, plus social media coverage during and after the trip. Accommodations, activities, transportation and some meals should be covered. Content development fees/day rates are applicable for additional content/coverage and custom campaigns. I can also help you organize group press trips from my community of trusted family travel bloggers.

A few of the destination marketing organizations I have worked with include: Destination Gettysburg, Central Oregon Visitors Association, Tourism Quebec, Visit Florida, Southern Delaware Tourism, and Sonoma County Visitor’s Bureau, among others.

Sponsored Posts

Brands or destinations that appeal to family travelers can request a sponsored post on We3Travel. A sponsored post written by We3Travel will highlight the sponsor in a way that provides valuable information to the reader – either through tips or in-depth profiles. All sponsored posts will be clearly marked as per FTC guidelines and all links will be no-follow links.

Examples of sponsored posts include Pride of MauiMacacotour, The Ranch at Rock Creek, and Hurtigruten Cruises.

Social Media Influencer Campaigns / Ambassadorships

I offer a number of social media and content creation services including Instagram takeovers (including daily Instagram Stories), Facebook Live events, Twitter chat hosting, video production and social media campaigns. Please request my rate card.

I love to promote brands that I am passionate about. Let’s work together to create a year-long campaign including blog posts, social media campaigns, and content for your marketing channels.

Podcast Sponsorship

Vacation Mavens offers access to a loyal and trusting audience of women interested in family travel. We offer live read ads, podcast buyouts and other joint collaborations with We3Travel and Stuffed Suitcase.

Freelance Writing

As a marketing professional with 20+ years of experience I can adapt to your voice and audience to provide original content for your blog, newsletter, website, or marketing materials. I also work with a close network of other family travel bloggers who can provide content for your website, blog and newsletter, as well as offer sponsored posts and social media campaigns for nationwide reach.

Testimonials

“Working with Tamara has been a pleasure. She is a true ambassador for our destination, and writes about her experiences with the perfect blend of enthusiasm and practical information for today’s travelers. The amount and level of quality writing from social posts to blogs to videos raises the standards set before her. Knowing Tamara’s professionalism, I wholeheartedly recommend her to other destinations and brands, and look forward to a continued relationship for our clients.”

Eva Faircloth,  Global Marketing Solutions blogger relations for Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism

“Tamara’s travel writing is superb.  I have worked with many travel writers in the last 45 year and seldom have I found anyone who is so honest and accurate.  She writes with the right amount of enthusiasm and excitement about the destinations and properties she visits. In a style that makes the reader want to book a trip to experience what Tamara has experienced.

My clients were  over the moon with the results and the amount of social media they received. They asked that I worked with her again on other properties and trips. She is a joy to work with.”

– Florence Tambone, Tambone Associates Public Relations

“I enjoyed working with Tamara very much. As much as she knew about Gettysburg before she visited, she kept an open mind and let Gettysburg speak to her and provide her with an array of angles of which to approach with her articles. Because of this, she was able to not only compile multiple articles, but continually publicize her passion for Gettysburg through social media content. Tamara is professional, she is keen on experiences and keeps her audience at the forefront of her coverage.

Tamara’s visit to Gettysburg was very rewarding to not only Destination Gettysburg, but to the places she stayed, visited and dined. But, as importantly, Tamara didn’t just write about Gettysburg and move on – she keeps plugging her experiences through social media, which has proven to be a great success.

I loved working with Tamara and have encouraged other destinations to work with her as well. She travels with a critical eye and an understanding that great destinations can be found close by. She provided Destination Gettysburg with a breakdown of her articles and social media posts as well as their performance. In my seven years in travel PR, she is the only journalist to have done so.”
