Seekers Media Establishes An Influencer Network

Seekers Media welcomes to its growing network The Collective — an influential group of Canada’s top bloggers and social media enthusiasts. 

The Collective was brought together by Jim Barr, CEO of Seekers Media, to continue the growing reach of its content across Canada by collaborating with some of the country’s leading writers. 

Each person in the collective has an extensive social media following. The list of Seekers’ award-winning social media influencers includes: — Jeff Bartlett — Adventure travel photographer and writer, based in Jasper, AB. Bartlett has more than 120,000 followers on Instagram and has travelled the world.  — Rebecca Bollwitt — Award-winning Vancouver-based travel writer and blogger who has been blazing social media trails for 14 years.

Awards include Best Blog Canada West (2014) in B.C., Best Local Twitterer from 2010-2013, and #1 Best Vancouver Blog 2009-2014. — Leigh McAdam — This curious travel and outdoor adventure expert is a multi-award winning blogger (Top 5 Blogs in Canada, 2015, Group of Seven Best Canadian Travel Blogger, 2015). She has 10,000 and counting followers on Twitter and averages 50,000-plus visitors per month to her website. McAdam is also author of Discover Canada: 100 Inspiring Adventures. — Mike Morrison — Since 2006, Morrison has been entertaining his fans with engaging, funny and insightful content.

He loves to travel and record about off-the-beaten places and experiences with photos and words. – Matt Mosteller- Powder Matt is hooked on Powder! Skiing has been part of his life for 40yrs! From ski racing to backcountry touring there is not a part of skiing that he does not like- in fact he will often say that spending a day in the mountains ‘Life is good when you do what you enjoy’ or refer you to his motto Eat.Sleep.Ski 

“The goal of The Collective is to always tell the best story from their unique perspective and make their audiences want to have that very same experience,” says Lisa Monforton, Editor of Seekers Media.   

Seekers also works with a long list of experienced writers and digital producers across Canada, including: Joanne Elves, Liz Fleming, Lisa Monforton, Chris Wheeler, Rebecca Coleman, Mark Sissons, Crai Bower and Paula Worthington.   

Monforton says when the bloggers were introduced to the Seekers’ network, the company asked them what kind of travel and experiences most appealed to them. “With that information, we try to make sure they get to experience and talk to people who can give them the best inside information on all of the festivals, destinations and activities we are covering,” said Monforton.   Once they’ve written their stories and taken their photos, the bloggers and writers do what they do best — spread the word on their adventures and stories through their individual websites, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+. Their goal is also to engage with the people they are writing about — from destination organizations, to festival organizers and musical artists headlining music festivals.   

The Collective adds tremendous value to anyone using the Seekers Media network amplifying reach. To find out more of how to leverage this tool, contact Jim Barr.
