Divergent Travelers is an established brand that reaches more than 5 million people every month through our blog and social media accounts.
Our followers and fans are travel enthusiasts, adventure fanatics as well as regular people that dream of doing more and traveling wide. We have a connection with our readers that you can’t get from traditional media; we interact with our readers. We understand what a traveler wants because we are travelers ourselves.
Our written, photo and video content is designed to engage millions of travel enthusiasts and adventure dreamers every time they visit our site. It’s shared socially through reader networks and often featured in mainstream media outlets.
We’re also obviously passionate about travel – and more importantly inspiring others to travel. So our content is equally about our far flung adventures as well as resources, brand product reviews, tips and ideas to get others started on their own journeys.
Our content is featured regularly by prominent mainstream brands in the travel industry.
We are one of the best in the industry.
Divergent Travelers has worked with destinations around the world showcasing their beauty and adventure to their readers. Each campaign is tailored to the destination and we work hard to build an itinerary that shows off the destination and appeals to our readers.
We’ve developed long term campaigns lasting several months, recurring campaigns where we revisit different destinations with the same company and have taken part in shorter one-off advertising initiatives to promote an event or activity.
We work with brands in several capacities from short one-off campaigns to ongoing partnerships. That said, we will partner with companies in all capacities. We believe in building relationships and will take occasional press trips and product sponsorship or travel in exchange for media coverage should the brand suit our niche.
Every campaign is designed to suit the company’s needs and to optimize engagement and motivate readers to take action.
