Testimonials

Working with Sally was an absolute pleasure. She went above and beyond with the content she created and I wouldn’t hesitate to work with Sally again.  Everything ran smoothly, all work was delivered on time and to a high standard… She’s a testament to how influencer and business collaborations should run.

– Lucinda Hurst, Brilliant Social Media (National Holidays campaign)

We sent Sally off on a 5-day trip around Scotland and from planning, through the trip and to delivery of her content she was brilliant to work with. She’s professional, a good communicator and delivered a really solid piece of work for us. Working with someone like Sally makes my job 100 times easier. 

– Lynsey McCarthy, D8 (ScotRail campaign)

Sally was a delight to collaborate with, she produced high quality imagery, brand-friendly video and great written content within a tight timeframe and was super easy to communicate with. A real pleasure and we’d definitely work with her again in the future!

– Faith Blumberger, ThreePipe (Benecol campaign)

I’ve worked with Sally on a few travel campaigns and would recommend her to other agencies and brands. She’s always happy to follow a brief, her posts are well written and she’s very professional. She’s previously met all deadlines (even the tight ones) and is a pleasure to work with!

Ways to Work with The Getaway Guide

We can offer you several ways to promote your brand including press trips, reviews, sponsored posts, competitions and advertising.

Press Trips

My readers love exploring new destinations and learning more about familiar places. Sharing my personal experience through a press trip will help to increase awareness of your brand in a way that really connects with potential visitors.

When I visit your destination on a press trip, I will promote my visit on social media both before and during the trip.

Once I return home, I will then write unique, high quality reviews with plenty of attractive photographs. These posts will be also promoted on social media and will form part of my ongoing social media promotion campaign.
