Social Media and Tourism: An Ebook to Get Started

I love to combine travel and social media. Here's an ebook to get YOU started, too! (photo by Sheila Scarborough, taken at Jelly Coworking Round Rock TX)Confused about the exact definition of social media, and how it can apply to your travel and tourism organization?

You’ll be happy to know that one of my own goofy definitions of social media is “blogs and stuff,” because I like to explain things to folks in plain English.

Want more help in navigating the two-way Web 2.0 world? My ebook is now available:

Social Media – What It Is and Why It Matters to Travel and Tourism

It’s the first in a series of ebooks I’m writing that will help bring focus to the power of Web-based communities in the world of tourism.

In this one, I explain:

**  Why —  why social media is a powerful communication tool.

**  What —  what are some of the social media platforms and tools, with examples of tourism organizations that are using Facebook, Twitter, etc. right now.

**  How —  how to get your tourism organization started in social media, either with baby steps or what we call in Texas “going in whole hog.”

The ebook only costs $9 because I want to make it affordable for the smallest travel and tourism company. I’ll take PayPal or any major credit card.

Please see the payment button below to buy it. Thanks!



  1. Thanks, Mary Jo and Sarah! It may not seem like much, but y’all just helped pay for a WAY-overdue haircut for me today. For that I’m honestly grateful, and so is my mirror and any stray cameras around….:)
