American millennial travellers are relaxed, romantic and embrace #YOLO

American millennial travellers are relaxed, romantic and embrace #YOLO | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it

Millennial travellers in the U.S. embrace the ‘you only live once’ (#YOLO) mentality, take risks, and focus on crossing things off their bucket list, while Gen X prefer relaxing trips and visiting family. The findings, from a survey we conducted with Northstar Research Partners, illustrate the distinct shopping habits, influences and motivations of travellers across four generations, including Generation Z, Millennials, Generation X and Baby Boomers. Across all generations, Americans are open-minded travellers who are deciding between two or more destinations and seeking help and inspiration during the travel planning process.

The rise of Snapchat in tourism marketing

The rise of Snapchat in tourism marketing | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it

MyTravelResearch.com says you need to be on Snapchat if your main market is youths and travellers in their 20s, especially if you’re trying to attract them in a cost-effective way. Research from MoffettNathanson shows 19.5 million unique female users over 35 in the United States in Q4 2016, up from 4.6 million in the previous year – a rise of 320%. That is momentum. However, Snapchat still only reaches about 8% of the over 35s in the U.S. By comparison 88% of people over 35 are on Facebook, 45% on Instagram, and 42% on Twitter. Furthermore, users over 35 spend about 30 minutes a day on Facebook, versus a mere three minutes on Snapchat. Find out more.

Bridging The Gap Between Travel Consumers And Marketers

Bridging The Gap Between Travel Consumers And Marketers | Tourism Social Media | Scoop.it

Understanding travel consumers and their purchasing process is certainly not a day at the beach for marketers. A travel consumer’s journey is extremely complex due to a number of factors. First, it’s important to consider the reasoning behind travel consumers’ interests and behaviors and how they differ across devices. Are consumers researching upcoming trips to take soon or dreaming of a future “bucket list” journey? How long will it take them to actually book a trip? What devices are they using to research their options and what devices are they using to book travel? Travel marketers need to view the entire panorama of possibilities.
