Working with Pip and the City

I believe in long-term partnerships with tourism boards and travel brands. In fact, I have worked with the same travel brands and tourism boards multiple times.

“It was a pleasure working with Portia on her trip to Utrecht. Planning and executing the trip was easy and she posted coverage soon after visiting and followed up with impressive results and engagements.
I am looking forward to our next collaboration”

Simone Sagi

PR Manager Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions.

If you recognize the benefit of working with me on a campaign, I’m open to reach an agreement on how both of us can benefit from that relationship?

I’m happy to work with sponsors, companies and advertisers that are relevant to my website and to my readers.

How we can work together

  • Sponsored press trips and destination campaigns
  • Content writing
  • Podcast creation
  • Sponsored articles and social content
  • Photography
  • Sponsored Twitter chat hosting

Since I began my career as a travel writer, I’ve been continuously developing my storytelling skills and my SEO skills.

Writing captivating articles that also work for Google is a passion of mine and a skillset that I’m always looking to build on.

Promoting your destination

I prefer to focus on comprehensive and multifaceted destination campaigns, that allows me to properly explore a destination and create several pieces of content from one trip.

An example of that can be seen in my recent work with Rooster PR and Visit St. Pete/Clearwater.

I excel at destination guides, mixing itinerary-like information with storytelling, to create authentic images and relatable articles that connect with readers.

Who I have worked with

I can help you promote your business through articles, podcasts or via my social channels.

My channels have a combined reach of over 55,000, via Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest.

Below are some of the tourism boards and travel brands that I have worked with.
