Welcome to Mallory Media. I’m Michael and I’m just a regular guy who loves travel, even though I don’t get to travel as much as I’d like. I have a family and a full-time position in another industry, so right now this is a sideline for me.
I started my own business years ago as a travel photographer. I ended up being a wedding photographer for a number of years, which gave me lots of insight into the hospitality industry. I’m not a professional photographer any more, but still do it as a hobby when I can.
I have a great deal experience with business branding, personal branding, marketing, and promotion from running my own business, but I don’t really consider myself an expert, although I have some expertise. I follow the quote from the great artist Michelangelo, “I am always learning.” You should be, too.
I’ve written several books, and I’m working on many more. I’m always learning and testing the latest promotion techniques, as well as testing traditional techniques that still work. It’s not all about social media, either, as many of the “old school” techniques work better and aren’t affected my algorithm changes.
The focus of my blog will be to bring interesting travel-related stories and information, blended with personal branding and “influencer” training, to help you better promote yourself and/or your business.
I have few different books and upcoming programs. I’m also potentially available to come speak to your group or organization, if you have one.
If you are a travel writer or blogger, feel free to contact me and we can either do an interview, or you can submit a guest post here. (I will review them, so it’s not guaranteed, but as long as it’s useful, I’ll probably let it be here.) If you have one, I’m also more than happy to review your book for you and post reviews here and on the book sites where it is sold.
That’s Mallory Media in a nutshell. If you have questions or comments, please post them. And please share anything you like on social media. Feel free to re-post any article I post here, as long as you credit me and provide a link back to the original article. If you’d like a quote or would like to interview me, please feel free to contact me using the “contact” page. You can call, but given time zones and other obligations, it may go to voice mail. (If you are with a news organization and leave a message, I will call you back within five minutes. I’m no stranger to deadlines and will help you meet yours, if I can.)
Thanks for visiting.
