Welcome to Mallory Media. I’m Michael and I’m just a regular guy who loves travel, even though I don’t get to take extended trips 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. Now, life gets in the way, and I ended up making most of my money from wedding photography, which did keep me in hotels a lot, but I still have a deep love for travel. I’m not a professional photographer any more, but still do it as a hobby when I can. I will be posting some general travel promotion articles, memes and quotes as well, from time to time.
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.
Here, I’m focusing my efforts on helping people in hospitality, travel and tourism write a book to promote some aspect of travel, or their own career in the travel field.
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.
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 writer, 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.) 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.
