Today on the podcast I’m interviewing Jeremy and Stephanie from RV Family Travel Atlas.
Jeremy and Stephanie wrote the book on RV Vacations (literally). Earlier this year they published the Idiot’s Guide to RV Vacations with Penguin Random House and have built up their blog and podcast network as a reputable source of information in the RV industry.
Jeremy and Stephanie have a background as educators. When they started RVing a few years ago with their kids, they naturally shared lessons and mistakes they’d made during their RV travels and turned them into valuable lessons for others.
Over time, they found two large needs within the RV industry they wanted to help solve through their blog:
- There wasn’t enough helpful content for other families who wanted to hit the road in an RV for vacations and extended trips
- Most RV companies weren’t doing a great job at content and social media marketing
Several years later, Jeremy and Stephanie have went above and beyond in solving both of these needs. They regularly contribute content to some of the most well known brands in the RV industry and have one of the most well known RV family blogs on the internet.
A few things we talk about today on the podcast:
- How sponsorships have changed over the past 5-10 years
- How to approach new client relationships
- How Jeremy and Stephanie built the RVFTA brand to provide value and attract relevant opportunities
- Potentially hosting an “RV Entrepreneur Summit” sometime in 2017
Today’s episode is sponsored by: The Inn Town Campground
The InnTown Campground is located in Nevada City, California. The InnTown Campground was started by a couple named Erin and Dan, who originally got the inspiration for their campground while traveling across New Zealand with their kids.
New Zealand has a great system of holiday parks for travelers and they wanted to bring that same feel of community and family-oriented camping to the US. Earlier this summer they achieved that goal and launched The Inn Town Campground in Nevada City. Their 15 acre campround not only features tent, glamping and RV spots, but they also have a building called The Commons which has a communal kitchen, living room, and a dining area.
