The Influencer-Audience Relationship
As a brand/advertiser, you don’t know if you are underpaying or overpaying Influencers you work with – and probably you never will. The problem in today’s social media world is that you can never quantify the value of the real connection between the Influencer and their audience because with one-click, anyone (even your company) can simply buy followers.
At P.S. I’m On My Way, actual engagement is proven and tested.
True story: Trisha’s followers booked a ticket to Tel Aviv to visit her. Her powerful writing made them do it! Click here to read the full story.
From the moment I started reading your blog there was a certain spark in my heart that I have never felt before, I always describe you as a ray of sunshine over the dark clouds, your optimism and drive through life is crazy infectious that I also would like to leave everything behind and get my backpack and just experience life through travel but not only because I have my own fair share of bucket list but because there are just so much to do and know to each places you’ll reach. You made me so excited of what’s to come without worrying so much, so we gonna dance and drink and celebrate life over a million of sunsets and sunrise!
You really make it spectacular to a reader like me. Your writing is always an inspiration, and my word of mouth when it comes travel and individuality to my fellows. It not about tips, but the encouragement and empowerment of every story you have that moved me.
My boss found my addiction during break time at work, reading your blog, and when my inspirational tank is critically down, just go read again over and over! It’s totally FREE. Thank you, amazing Trisha! I’m forever grateful, and cheers to many P.S. I’m on my way adventures, superb article, more girls rising up. 🙂 All the love and force be always with your purpose.
Your blogs are witty, fun and inspiring! The first blog that I read from you was the article 10 reasons why you shouldn’t date a Mexican. It reminded me of past experiences and haha made me wish I had dated more Mexican guys in the past. But, then, reading more of your blogs about your travels and experiences helped me dream and learn about a different way of living. I’m still trying to figure out how I can make a similar lifestyle work for myself. But I did make one great decision from reading your blog: I left college and moved to Colombia.

We’ve worked with over 130 online influencers from all over the world, and I can safely say that Trisha is one of a kind! Not only is she incredibly savvy in social media influence, she is also very dedicated and caring about her customers and is truly committed to their success. She is honest, straightforward, professional and creates excellent engagement with the target market she is tasked with reaching. I would not hesitate at all to work with Trisha on any project that can bring her strengths to the fore, there are not many like her out there!
There are a lot of great digital influencers in the world, or in Southeast Asia to be specific (based on my last project with Trisha), but Trisha is truly one of a kind. She’s more than a girl with a great and lively personality and she pours her soul in every write-ups, in every digital strategy that she’s developing. For that, you can definitely find professionalism, creativeness and inspirations working with her. Looking forward to work with her again and will definitely recommend her to anyone!
Trisha is an experienced, knowledgeable and professional advocate for Israel who was a pleasure to work with from start to finish. As an experienced traveller as well as an in country expat, her local knowledge and contacts were vital to the smooth running and success of a recent FAM trip to Jerusalem, and she remains a staunch proponent for the many positive benefits of travelling to or working in Israel. On a personal level Trisha is a warm, spirited and passionate woman who I can trust to deliver a wide range of expert services, and I would not hesitate to work with her again or recommend her to any future clients or colleagues.
The best thing we love about Trisha is that she doesn’t take campaigns and products because of the monetary reward. In order to have a successful campaign, she prefers to work with brands and companies that she believes in. There are many young people out there who believe in what she does, who follow her travel life on a daily basis so she is very careful in selecting the people she works with. Her readers are engaging and you can see that she really took care of her audience by having a personal relationship with them. I kid you not, if you want to have a genuine and effective social media campaign, Trisha is your girl!
Despite the geographical and time zone difference, Trisha makes you feel like she’s just in the next room answering to your queries. Working with her was one of the highlights of my profession for this year (2016), she is approachable, professional, and makes sure everything is in order before the engagement even starts. She makes it a point to deliver relevant and timely responses, and content which is beneficial both for her and the client. I am hoping and looking forward to more collaborations with her, and hopefully to meet her in person and get my fan sign! *wink*. Working with Trisha will be one of the best decisions you’ll ever make.
I am so happy I was able to meet Trisha on her most recent trip to Israel! Her energy is truly inspiring, and her love for people and what she does is something to be noted. Trisha has the ability (and I truly don’t know how she does it) to give every person that she meets personal attention. She can connect with everyone and loves to offer her help and guidance to any that ask. Working alongside Trisha was such a good experience, I learned a lot from how she goes about running her own business, connecting with others, and delivering great results! Connect with Trisha – it will be super fun and meaningful.
Showaround has worked with a countless number of travel bloggers and digital influencers globally and Trisha has definitely stood out. I highly recommend working with her; we loved her distinctinve way with words, high-quality photos, as well as authentic insights, which she provided us when writing about her experience in Tel Aviv. She responded very quickly to all the inquiries we had and not only followed instructions but also made an extra mile. Professionalism, accuracy, and passion for her craft are the three features that, in my opinion, best describe Trisha’s work.
Working with Trisha was such a lovely experience! Being a peer-to-peer RV rental company, she really tailored to our needs and made sure we were happy the entire time. RVshare has worked with several partners in the travel industry and Trisha is definitely one of our favorites! She is super quick to respond and the love for her work is very apparent. After our time with Trisha, we look forward to following along with her travels. She’s a great person to work with and we very much recommend her.
With thousands of bloggers out there these days, Trisha is definitely one myself and Glamping Hub recommend working with. Being very communicative and easy to reach even in the most rural of destinations, Trisha is hard-working and professional, making sure all deliverables are received in a timely matter, giving her honest testimonies of both the experience and stays, as well as providing fun and engaging content. Whilst bouncing from country to country, she makes sure that her projects and responsibilities to her partners never go unmissed.
Mid-April, I received an Email from Trisha, asking me if I would be interested in hosting her in some of our hotels in exchange of social media coverage. I tend to be hesitant when receiving such demands, as we are not yet totally accustomed to these partnerships in Morocco. However, the email was detailed and very professional, leading me to agree on the spot to work with Trisha. I have not at all regretted my decision, for I met a young, cheerful, outgoing and mostly very precise and professional young lady. Trisha is respectful of the staff and the culture. I remain very positive and patient to receive the rest of her social media coverage to share it with all those who were glad to meet her during her stay.
We were expecting a conference in the Maldives for Social Influencers. Trisha was the first person to contact us and i really liked the way her work was presented. It was very detailed and professional. She is definitely the first few social influencers we have had whom is really dedicated to her craft and does her best. She also introduced to us the remaining members of her team whom were really a great team put all together. Kimi is professional and takes stunning pictures. Thomas takes some of the most beautiful pictures and he makes a great couple with Kimi! The entire team really complemented each other. Omri did a great little video of the water sport activities. All in all, truly an experience and wish their team all the best! Thank you for choosing Bandos Maldives and working with us! Looking forward to the pictures from the team to share with all our guests 🙂
Working with Trisha is a blast. She is a cheerful and experienced travel experts with fruitful stories to share. Trisha collaborated with EAST, Hong Kong by taking over the Instagram account for a one-week. The colour of her photos are stunning and eye-catching which gave a fresh look to our followers and generated lots of positive feedback.
Trisha – has been fighting against stereotypes with firm beliefs and a headstrong attitude. This has anchored her in breaking the conventions dictated by society. Taking the path less traveled is always daunting and Trisha’s blog has given us a peak to her own personal journey. She documents her experiences with such candour and wit that resonates with her readers. We had the pleasure of having her speak on this at our event which contributed to its success.
We had an awesome experience collaborating with Trisha. We throw her ideas for a possible workshop, and she’ll gladly fit us into her schedule. She’s easy to work and negotiate with. She’s willing to adjust to our needs and is really accommodating. With regard to the workshops we did with her, we can say that Trisha knows her thing. Her casual yet engaging style of imparting her knowledge and expertise is something we can commend. She knows when to be strict and when to have fun. We’d be thrilled to collaborate again with her!
Having the opportunity to work with Trisha enabled us to step into the world of travelling. Her passion gave us a glimpse of the fulfilment travelling gives. It was a pleasure to have her speak on Immersive Traveling in one of our workshops. Her love and dedication for what she does make it easy for the audience to grasp her words and interact with her. Her impact on us and on the audience proved that her influence goes beyond numbers and beautiful pictures, she’s a natural influencer.
I have worked with several influencers, as we call them, but personally I am starting to hate the term ever since it started to be all about the numbers. An influencer is someone who is able to affect the behavior or opinion of the people because of his/her credibility and authenticity, usually in the form of his/her work. The number of his/her followers or engagement is a by-product. I personally look for storytellers that are more excited to share their stories, stories that really matter to them vs those that will bring in the numbers, and likes. The world needs more authenticity. So my team invited Trisha to be a speaker in one of our pilot campaigns targeting digital nomads to talk about traveling as a way of life. We chose her not merely because of her followers or engagement, but for the vision and the story that she creates and shares to the world. She’s bold and authentic in all aspects of her life, something that I think brands and businesses should look for when they collaborate. She can be crazy at times, but aren’t we all?
