Oh Say Have you Seen….. MARYLAND

This coming spring, Jmore and PressBox will again be dedicating our annual travel issues exclusively to the State of Maryland. The issues will contain a full section of travel destinations and events, all focused on keeping travelers in-state and reaching those in nearby states with great vacation ideas. Our travel content will emphasize key visitor experiences such as Maryland’s trail system, the Chesapeake Loop, Indigenous Peoples and the Underground Railroad.

To expand the reach of our Maryland Travel section, our ‘brother’ media company, County Sports Zone will also support the program with content and promotion sending visitors to the exclusive Maryland travel sections to be found on our web portals, JmoreLiving.com/travel and PressBoxOnline.com/travel. In total, will run in print, social media, video, streaming radio / podcasts and three websites with additional support using Facebook and Google Adwords campaigns placed by our partner Enradius. The campaign generated over 4 million impressions in its first year and is expected to generate over 5 million impressions in the coming year, all for the benefit of Maryland tourism and our participating sponsors.
