Boy, am I glad it’s April. We’re that much closer to summer in Milwaukee, I’m heading to Cruise360 in Fort Lauderdale and I’m going on vacation at the end of the month! Seriously – it feels great to have these exciting things to look forward to.
This month also brings us our family travel campaign, meaning we’ll be focusing on family travel from now until late April. What this means for you is a bundle of super helpful family-focused articles on The Compass (including some crowdsourced content from you and your peers) plus sweet family deals from some excellent suppliers are ready for you. Some of my favorite family travel articles are:
But wait, there’s more! We’ve got more family articles publishing and I’ve got more to talk about.
April on The Compass is also dedicated to Europe travel. We’ve seen a sort of tide change in the industry, and have heard from many of you, that travelers are looking to Europe more than ever. Of course we love Mexico and the Caribbean, but cities like London, Paris and Barcelona are making their way onto travelers’ bucket lists. So we’re arming you with content, lots of it shareable and full of travel inspiration, for destinations across the pond. Get a millennial’s perspective on Berlin. See what European hotels my beloved Real Housewives have stayed in and book them on VAX for your clients. And stay tuned to see the other awesome Europe stuff we’ve got coming for you.
There’s one more thing I’m excited about: hearing from you. We launched our Perspectives category on The Compass in February, and we’ve already published some really captivating pieces right from you. And we’re publishing even more this month. Hear from an ex-cop who retired to start his own agency and two of our contributing editors, who are some of the most motivated millennials I’ve ever met. I put them in the same category as Krystal Aziz, the millennial agent who shared her story with us last month. Millennials, man – we are not messing around.
If you feel inclined to share your story (and we really want you to), send us a note at firstname.lastname@example.org. Share your story not just for yourself, but to help me out so I don’t get in trouble with my publisher!
