Copywriting and Content Writing for Travel Websites That Drive More Traffic and Sales

Content marketing now opens the door for more two-way conversations and relationships with customers than ever before.

No surprise there, right?

You also know content writing that actively engages, informs, and entertains is vital to your content marketing efforts. As is persuasive copywriting.

That said, how is your content writing performing? What about your web copy? Are they getting the results you want?

If not, one reason might be that your content marketing strategy needs more work. Without a solid strategy, your travel business is going to have a hit-and-miss impact.

Travel Content Writing That Sets You Apart

So here’s something to consider.

Maybe your website’s content writing isn’t any different than that of your competition. A lot of content writing out there is way too general, repetitive, and uninspiring.

In other words, it just doesn’t engage your audience or clearly show how your products and services differ from (are better than) those of your competitors.

If that’s the case, here’s how to immediately make your website’s content writing (and your travel business) stand out:

Speaks to a specific (niche) audience
Relevant to audience needs and interests
Can’t-find-this-anywhere-else-original
Appeals to emotion
Thought provoking
Conversational tone
Well researched
Consistently tells your business story

Together, they’ll help give your travel brand a clearly defined voice and personality.

Travel Copywriting That Moves Your Audience

 

 


The power of carefully chosen words elevates the ordinary and can move your audience to action.

Now, what about your website copywriting? Does it really ‘ignite desire’ (you know, sell)?

The thing about web copy is that it should be seductive in its selling – in a good way. Not slick. And remember, web readers are scanners. Use familiar words. Talk to them, let them get to know you. And always use a call to action!

When you combine authentic content writing with compelling copywriting readers will heed your call.

They’ll click on that link to get your new travel itinerary. Or they’ll share that inspiring adventure travel article with others on social media. Better still, they’ll want to buy your latest tour package or travel service.

Rapport, trust, and sales. When all is said and done isn’t that what you want?

Copywriting and Content Writing Services That Give You a Leg Up

You could say that managing a travel business is a lot like climbing a mountain. Sure, you don’t have to deal with ropes, ice axes, or Elvis leg (unless, of course, you offer mountain climbing tours!). But it does take courage, grit, and strategy.

Specifically, content marketing strategy using copywriting and content writing services that give you a leg up on your competition.

Top Tactics for More Sales

The writing services I offer include the top content marketing tactics for B2C and B2B travel businesses. They’re tried-and-true ways to generate more leads and sales for your business. Which ones are you looking for?

Articles

Business blogging continues to grow and longer, article-style blog content continues to perform better in search engines.

A typical blog post length is now (2019) more than 1,100 words. These posts have a much more reported-story, magazine feel with solid research and interviews.

The more you blog content of this kind, the greater likelihood your posts will get shared and generate more leads. In fact, companies with blogs produce 67% more leads than those without a blog (Demand Metric).

Blog posts are one of the best ways to redirect visitors to other website content like your e-newsletter, case study, white paper, etc.

e-Newsletters

E-newsletters are a great way to build a community of loyal fans and followers with high-value, free content emailed on a regular basis.

They can be as simple as a one-page format that focuses on a single topic. Freebies like destination guides, travel deals, and exclusive offers give your audiences incentive to subscribe right away.

Case Studies

B2B case studies are similar to word-of-mouth testimonials by customers who love your services or products.

They’re best-suited to creating awareness of a problem and how it was solved for a client. They also offer consumers a show of trust in your business and your clients benefit from mention in the study.

White Papers

White papers are different from case studies. They’re in-depth reports that use research to help B2B prospects better understand a problem. Or, they outline new trends and opportunities.

They also position you as an authority which is why 71% of B2B businesses surveyed use them to market their products. (Content Marketing Institute, 2017)

Ghostwriting

Consider a ghostwriter who writes content that you publish under your own name. If you’re a busy travel business exec with no time to write blog posts or thought pieces for trade and industry journals, this could be the way to go.

Website Copy

The whole idea of website copy is to persuade your audience. It works together with content writing to build rapport, trust, and sales.

That means your copywriting targets your ideal customers. It entices them with features and benefits because, hey, customers only care about what you can do for them. Strong headlines with simple-to-scan text pulls them even closer to the sacred bottom of the sales funnel.

Great copy is also optimized copy. Using search engine optimization (SEO) techniques raises your website’s online visibility to make it easier for your ideal travel customers to find you.

By the way, I specialize in search engine optimization and my own site ranks on page one in Google for many of my keyword phrases.

Freelance Writing That Engages, Informs, and Inspires

Like most of your travel marketing colleagues, you find there’s never enough time to create quality written content.

As a result, you’re constantly under pressure to produce content that resonates with prospects and customers alike. Above all, it’s got to be original, informative, memorable, and persuasive if you want to build leads and sales.

Thinking Like a Content Marketer

That, my friends, is when a freelance writing professional can really help you.

One who thinks like a journalist and crafts engaging content that educates and informs. One who also thinks like a content marketer and inspires your audiences to take action with compelling copywriting.

And especially one who’s passionate about travel. I know, for example, that a double open-jaw isn’t a dental procedure. And a mattress run bulks up points on a hotel’s frequent stay program. By the way, when was the last time you felt an afterglobe?
