7 February 2023 – G Adventures in the US has partnered with Jerne, the world’s leading platform that connects content creators to experience providers, to streamline the creator/experience relationship from start to finish.
As travel begins to reach and exceed pre-2020 levels, G Adventures has revamped the process with which it will work with creators, focusing on specific geographical areas, themes, and experiences that dovetail into larger marketing strategies. Jerne offers an easy-to-use platform that ensures both sides – creators and providers – are matched in a mutually-beneficial relationship, clearly defining goals and responsibilities, and providing useful metrics and measurable results.
“We know that creators are a key piece in our marketing plan, and Jerne’s seamless platform will allow us to work more efficiently with new audiences to amplify how traveling with G Adventures can help make the world a better place,” Alex Sanchez, consumer marketing manager for G Adventures in the US.
According to a recent study by Adobe, there are hundreds of millions of influential creators around the world who are focused on sharing and engaging with their community of followers across a plethora of online platforms. Nielsen, in another recent study, found that 71% of consumers trust advertising opinions and product placement from content creators.
“When you combine the volume of creators around the world and the documented influence they have on buying decisions with a world-class product like G Adventures, the sky is truly the limit,” said Tim Morgan, Jerne’s CEO.
“As the pioneer in community tourism, G Adventures has long understood that building, sustaining, and growing a community is one of the most important ways that travel can be a force for good,” said Sanchez. “And it’s no different when working with the creator community.”
“As a leader in building community within its travelers as well as in its destinations, G Adventures is perfectly poised to realize the marketing opportunities associated with this fast-growing distribution channel,” said Morgan.
