In fact, a 2014 Google Travel Study revealed that 65% of leisure travelers are inspired to travel by what they see online, primarily on social and video sites. Although many DMOs use visuals in their marketing, many have underestimated the influence authentic and aspirational photography can have on motivating people to visit their destinations.
