Hey, Travel Massive Community,

I am working on our passion project, Palette, which was born from a BootCamp. I am looking to validate further and learn more about travelers. Where do you find people to chat with to learn more perspectives on travel, specifically travel planning, both online and offline?

Thanks!

Good question!

Offline: Attend business / startup networking events and ask people. "Hey, I'm working on a side project in travel, and I want to know what tools you use to plan your trip?". In person, people generally love talking about travel, so that bit is easy.

Online: It's harder to cold-contact people, and surveys typically have very low completion rates. You could do a call out in your own network on LinkedIn (similar to Camille's suggestions) and then people who know you are more likely to help. If you can boil down your question to single multiple choice the maybe you could ask on social platforms like X, IG and get people to engage.

Hope that helps and when you've progressed a bit more and ready to share Palette with a bigger audience then submit your project here on Travel Massive — that's also another way to ask for feedback from the community.

Hi Martin!
Aside from using costly user interview platform you can do some outreach on LinkedIn by searching people with specific job titles. This is what I did for a start-up I worked for who was operating on a limited budget.
I've worked in tourism for over 8 years in a variety of different capacities so I'm also happy to help if possible 😊

I have had great success finding people to interview for my IG live this past year just by messaging people on Instagram. I find it is so easy to connect with people there. Another way is on Facebook groups! I always help people validate their ideas on those groups :)

Feel free to connect with me: charmaine@thecanadianwanderer.com

Forgive me for pointing out the glaringly obvious lol - but I'm sure you can round up some names and emails here. I've found the TM forum a fantastic resource for all travel-related queries.
