Quick Tips for surveying:

As a reminder, successful Hosts tend to:

  • Share their survey link ongoing across Instagram, TikTok and Facebook
  • Speak directly to the camera
  • Link their survey in social bios
  • Drop hints about potential destinations
  • Use clear call-to-actions
    • Ex: "Help me design our next trip!"

Take Advantage of Video Text Overlay

Video outperforms static content every time!

  • Get your face on cam with a clear call to action to get your followers engaged with what you're planning.
  • Use text overlay to get the message across even if a viewer is on mute. Use captions like:
    • “Help me design our next trip”
    • "Where do you want to travel in 2022?"
    • “Come travel with me!”

Post Across Multiple Platforms

Spread the word and get maximum reach.

  • Get your survey in front of as many eyes as possible. The more viewers, the more likely it is that some will become your future Travelers.
  • You can also share your link with anyone you would want to travel with! Friends, family, clients, your professional network, sports/hobby groups, email lists or your broader social media audience.
  • Platforms we've seen work well for survey promotion include:
    • Instagram
    • TikTok
    • YouTube
    • Twitter
    • Pinterest
    • Blogs
    • Podcasts
    • Website mailing lists
    • & more!

Utilize Interactive Features

Get your audience engaged.

  • Features like Instagram Q&A or polls are a great way to get your community involved and excited to travel with you.
    • Use this as an opportunity to answer Traveler questions and get connected personally.
  • Share your responses to your story to educate other viewers and generate more buzz.

  • Direct viewers to your link in bio where they can partake in the survey.
    • Be sure to leave your link in bio for 48+ hours.
  • Engage in the comments to connect with your audience and boost hype.
