Andrea Vetrano has become a name to reckon with in the industry as a successful influencer in the space of luxury travel. His brilliant captures of beautiful destinations and artistic showcasing of luxurious hotels have gained him recognition and a massive following on social media platforms. We spoke with Vetrano about his inspiration and career as a Marketing Expert.
Q:Hello, Mr. Vetrano. Please tell us about yourself.
A: I was born in Catania, Italy, and hold a degree in Computer Science. From a young age, I was passionate about photography and traveling. I loved to explore unknown places, different cultures, and gain new experiences.
Q: What inspired you to embark on a career as a Marketing Expert?
A: In 2014, I decided to combine both my passions and started traveling across the globe and posting pictures and videos from my sojourns. The pictures started getting noticed and appreciated for their creativity, quality, and mesmerizing visuals, which encouraged me to take travel blogging seriously. In 2017, inspired by pages of other travel influencers, I transformed my social media profiles to project a professional image and started posting quality content that caught the attention of various luxurious hotels.
In 2018, a hotel contacted me for a free stay in exchange for a review of the hotel. Thus began my journey in the travel industry as a professional Marketing Expert. Since then, I have been approached by several prestigious hotel brands for collaborations. I offer various services such as brand consultation, reviews, social media marketing, content creation, and sponsored posts on my Instagram page. My repertoire includes a partnership with Four Seasons, St. Regis, Aman, Kempinski, Ritz Carlton, Mandarin Oriental, and many more hotels all over the world.
Q: How would you define your life as a Marketing Expert?
A: The job of a Marketing Expert seems glamorous, but creating innovative concepts, shooting and editing photos and videos, and articulating captivating content requires immense hard work, discipline, planning, and strategizing. My passion is my driving force apart from my professionalism and creativity, which pushes me to challenge myself every day and provide an exceptional service that adds substantial value and increases the brand awareness of my client. I am constantly learning and improving my knowledge to excel at my job and elevate my reputation as a marketing expert.
