How does Barefoot Luxe influence readers?
People are savvy travelers and do extensive internet research before booking a trip, hotel, or retreat. Many readers of Barefoot Luxe’s retreat and hotel articles are impressed by what they read and subsequently make their booking decisions based on Barefoot Luxe’s reviews.
How do we know this? Through the booking links on Barefoot Luxe and from my own personal experiences. In my travels I increasingly come across people who instantly recognize the name Barefoot Luxe and say they had read an article on Barefoot Luxe when doing their travel research.
Readers have told me : “I do a lot of research before I travel, and I like the way Barefoot Luxe tells you what the real experience is like, and isn’t just a typical sales description of the facilities and services”. This directly leads to bookings to the places written up in Barefoot Luxe.
