We3Travel Family Travel Blog

We3Travel caters to an audience of global travelers, both Millennials and Gen X-ers, looking for fun, cultural experiences and outdoor adventure. Through destination guides, sample itineraries, reviews, and travel tips, we help answer the question — where should we go next and how?

Our goal is to provide actionable information that readers can use to plan their own trips. This is why our readers come back again and again when researching their next vacation or looking for inspiration.

We3Travel specializes in luxury, soft adventure, culinary travel, cultural/educational experiences, and emerging destinations.

In addition to We3Travel, Tamara is also the producer and co-host of the weekly family travel podcast, Vacation Mavens. Tamara is a member of the Society of American Travel Writers (SATW) and the Family Travel Association (FTA).

You can also find her freelance writing in Twist Travel Magazine, Ciao Bambino!, Family Vacation Critic, and other travel websites.

Audience and Reach

Since its launch in April 2013, We3Travel’s audience and reach has steadily grown and is currently visited by over 100,000 unique visitors per month, with over 160,000 monthly page views. In addition, I am active across social media, particularly Twitter, Pinterest, Instagram, and Facebook, with over 50,000 total followers (as of July 2018.)

Our readers are 80% female and 70% are married. Visitors to We3Travel are largely Millennials, with 35% in the 25-34 age range and 28% ages 35-44. The top metro areas of our website visitors are: New York, Boston, London, Washington DC, Orlando, Rome, Philadelphia, San Francisco, Chicago, and Los Angeles. Fifty-six percent of our readers have an average home value between $200-500k and fifty-five percent have an annual household income between $150-250k.

With a focus entirely on travel, brands can rest assured that all of our visitors are actively looking for travel information and inspiration — not traffic driven largely from recipes, crafts, or other topics.

Marketing & PR

Tamara has over 20 years of corporate marketing experience. This means you are partnering with a seasoned professional and writing professional who knows how to help you promote your brand.

I am happy to accept press releases or pitches about travel products, destinations, or programs geared toward travel. Please contact me to talk about how we can work together.

Press Trips

My goal is to provide actionable 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 sometimes an option. Accommodations, activities, transportation and some meals should be covered. In exchange, I will provide at least one blog post, a mention on the Vacation Mavens podcast, one Facebook post, and some Instagram Stories.

Content development fees/day rates are applicable for additional content development and social media coverage. 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: Travel Kansas, Experience Scottsdale, Tourism Quebec, Visit Florida, Southern Delaware Tourism, I LOVE NY, CityPASS, Visit El Paso, and others.

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.

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/co-hosting, 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 parents 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.

Case Studies

Shaw’s Gas Rewards

Goal: Generate awareness of Shaw’s and Star Market’s Gas Rewards Program in New England. 

Summary: Instead of just promoting the Gas Rewards program as a stand alone post, I proposed creating a post outlining how to take a New England road trip on a budget. I provided a sample one week itinerary with destinations and activity suggestions. In each destination, I highlighted some budget accommodation options and also pitched the Gas Rewards Program as a way to save money on the trip. I knew that focusing on the road trip angle would bring in more qualified traffic over a longer period of time, resulting in more awareness and results for the brand. I made sure to research the appropriate keywords and optimize the post to maximize the results. 

Results: Within one year, the post has generated over 21,000 page views. The post is ranking #5 on Google for “New England road trip” and has been repinned on Pinterest over 4,200 times. As the post continues to gain steam on Google and Pinterest, it is currently receiving between 3,000 and 4,000 page views per month. The post will continue to drive traffic through Google and Pinterest search.

Colorado Springs

Goal: Generate awareness of outdoor pursuits in Colorado Springs through a sponsored post on We3Travel.com.

Summary: Since we were already in the fall season, I decided to focus on what family-friendly activities you can do outside in the winter in Colorado Springs. I recognized that many people may not be aware that Colorado Springs actually has a milder climate than the ski towns that most people would think to visit in Colorado in the winter. Also, after careful SEO research I discovered that “Colorado Springs in the winter” was a keyword that generated substantial traffic but was still possible to rank for. Therefore the post was titled “7 Things You Didn’t Know you Could do in Colorado Springs in the Winter.”

Results: Within 60 days of the post going live, the post generated 3,176 page views and 290 social media interactions. It is currently ranking number one on Google for the keyword “Colorado Springs in the winter” and is one the second page of search results for “Things to do in Colorado Springs.” The post will continue to drive traffic through Google and Pinterest search.

“I enjoyed working with Tamara very much. 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.” – Carl Whitehill, Destination Gettysburg
