Increasing role of video in travel-related decision making process
Eight leisure travel sites have recently joined the Fliqz partner network in an effort to capitalise on the power of online video to fully showcase destinations. (8/17/2007)
Fliqz, which provides full-service, plug-and-play video solutions, shared that the sites are BootsnAll.com, TravelBlog.org, Travellerspoint Travel Community, Ker & Downey, Slowtrav.com, 1000wines.org, Incredible Adventures and TheGreatWallNut.com.
The Fliqz video service gives sites of any size the ability to offer full video functionality and as a result, promote their brand more completely.
Currently, the Fliqz customer network consists of more than 350 sites in the travel, family, classifieds and blogging/emerging media spaces.
“We’re seeing phenomenal traction for the Fliqz video service in the online travel and leisure space,” said Benjamin Wayne, President and CEO of Fliqz.
“Video helps these websites to fully showcase destinations and to differentiate potential travel packages in a way that static photographs and websites cannot. We are committed to helping our partners take their sites to the next level by broadening both reach and sales with new technologies. We’re also helping them to further expose their brands with viral community features built into the video experience. Our work with partners in the online travel and leisure space adds a new dimension to planning a consumer’s next vacation,” added Wayne.
