WHAT WE OFFER
We collaborate with brands to draw awareness and boost excitement about their products or services by sharing them with our community of engaged adventurer lovers on Instagram. These campaigns include a combination of stories, reels, and in feed posts.
in-depth blog posts
An in-depth blog post is one of our favorite ways to connect with our community and share more details about our visits, interactions, and experiences. These feature articles always include high quality imaging, referral links, tons of information, and Pinterest promotion.
Looking to elevate your media and draw excitement with fresh new content? We work with brands to create content for their social media, websites, in-store banners, flyers, and email newsletters. These packages can vary in size and focus to best serve the needs of our partners.
YouTube is our newest platform and we are seeing tremendous reach and success so far. With over 85,000 views per month and counting, it is an excellent option for promotion. We are passionate about creating incredible videos that showcase a destination, adventure, or product in a relatable, fun, and entertaining way.
Would you like a promotional video for your website, Instagram, or for your YouTube channel? With a set up including a drone, a GoPro, and a full frame camera and mic, we are fully equipped to handle the media creation. We like to create a storyboard together before filming to ensure the best possible outcome.
Our Pinterest presence, which reaches hundreds of thousands of people each month, is a huge factor in driving website traffic and promoting our adventures. Included with each blog post is a series of at least 25 Pinterest posts with high quality images and referral links. We use specific keyword research to dominate the search results of each niche.
BOUTIQUE HOTEL GLACIER IN SWITZERLAND
During our honeymoon this fall, we had the delight of partnering with Hotel Glacier in Grindelwald, Switzerland. The wonderful combination of luxurious amenities, delectable food, and killer views left us in awe of each moment we spent here. We worked together with Maria to create a custom package to suit the specific needs of the hotel including a 4K photo and video bank, a YouTube video, a blog post and a detailed Instagram campaign.
“Boutique Hotel Glacier had the pleasure of welcoming David & Cayleigh from Made to Explore this September. It was an absolute pleasure to host this couple. How refreshing to finally have travel bloggers who take the job seriously. David and Cayleigh showed up early and late to ensure the best possible conditions for their photos and video content. The couple is very professional, easy to work with and the pictures and video was delivered as agreed and in a very high quality”.

savoy signature in madeira portugal
We had the pleasure of working with Savoy Signature to promote two of their six hotels during our stay in Madeira, Portugal. We worked closely with the PR team to showcase the desired aspects of each hotel while bringing our own personal touch to all of the content. From the incredible ocean views to the spacious rooms and luxurious amenities, we had so much fun sharing the gorgeous properties with our community.
“This partnership with Cayleigh and David with the goal of sharing their experience at our hotels —Saccharum and NEXT, both with distinctive characteristics— surpassed our expectations. They were professional and easy to work with, which lead to the amazing content they created for us! Every detail of the hotel was recognized, creative, engaging, and appealing. We are so happy on how the results turned out! We hope that one day we will be able to collaborate again!”
