The other day, I got into a conversation with Matthew Barker from I&ITravelMedia about his post over on Tnooz that says “Travel Marketing Is More Frustrating Than Ever” (or, as originally written over on Medium, his post “Travel Marketing is a Bitch”). When I tweeted a link to Matthew’s article, I added, “Yes and no, tbh,” which prompted Matthew to ask: “Curious. Which one of my three observations do you disagree with?”

The short answer to Matthew’s question is “None of those observations.” Every point that Matthew makes is spot-on and worth considering as you market your hotel or travel service. The long answer? Well that took an 8 tweet mini-tweetstorm to explain and you might find it interesting. So, without further ado, here’s my reply to the question, “Is Travel Marketing More Frustrating Than Ever?” Enjoy:
