"How to Work with Travel Bloggers is an ideal introduction into the world of new media professionals and the relationship they have with brands and companies from the tourism industries. With the quick expansion (if not to say explosion!) of blogging and social media, this manual will provide valuable insights to those within the industry who are uncertain about collaborating with travel bloggers by giving them simple and indicative tools that will help them determine if, or rather why, working with social media specialists might be worth their while. And for those who already work with travel bloggers, it gives supplemental ideas of how to plan upcoming projects by setting up measurable goals and tips on how to find the right person for the right project."
~ Hugo Leclerc, Manager – Media & Leisure Market, Tourisme Montréal
