#ILoveGay Marketing Program:
The hub for online content, business, community & social media interactions related to LGBT Life

Interactive Storytelling in 280 characters or less...
the "short form" done right leads to "long form" follow through!

What #ILoveGay does is bring together the conversations and relevant content related to LGBT Life, where we participate in and become an active part of these social media conversations out where they are happening live, in real-time on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc. As a business, we are participating in these conversations, identifying which individuals and brands are strongest in this specific niche market relevant to #ILoveGay, as well as determining who are the bloggers, vloggers, influencers and various video content creators dominant in this space. Our intent and our goal is to interact with, work with and leverage their activity and user-generated content for the #ILoveGay campaign, for both our site overall and on our advertiser's behalf.

What is our goal with #ILoveGay to Businesses? To be the Best Brand to work with when targeting the LGBT community online, blending influencer marketing, content marketing and social media, as well as traditional online strategies.

How Do We Do It? We find the right mix of curating, retweeting, and liking content, as well as following Twitter users, while staying "on brand". We promote content, including advertisers', at the social media post level, you know, just like an LGBT influencer would ;-)

We enjoy sharing our insights from all we've done right and wrong and aim to provide valuable stories and travel advice. For us, travel is amazing and life changing and we want others to get a taste. Though many people don't realize, travel is more achievable than they think and we want to prove that it's also possible to do without spending a lot of money. We hope to inspire those who want to travel to actually do it and those who already do to travel more.
