BOSTON, MASS. - February 20, 2009 - Kaleel Sakakeeny, founder & president of New Media Travel and Travel Video Postcard, today announced the launch of the Travel Video PostCard scope of products and services.

Travel Video PostCard provides a custom one-minute video using natural sound, with Video Search Engine Optimization, which is published on YouTube to maximize viral distribution. In addition, Sakakeeny offers clients relevant blogs, analytical reports with viewer demographics, details on rankings and placements, and viewer comments. This consumer insight is valuable to travel marketers to assist them in shaping campaigns in real-time.

"As markets for my travel journalism began declining over the past several years, I saw a new way to engage my former readership," said Sakakeeny. "With the tools now available through Google, YouTube, and Yahoo, we can produce and virally distribute editorial-quality video globally," he concluded.

In recent AOL-AP poll, 34 percent of consumers reported they are basing travel decisions on video, as opposed to print, which is 14 percent. Travel Video PostCard is well-positioned to assist the hospitality sector in adding video and social media to their marketing mix to influence consumers, given this trend.

TVP Founder Kaleel Sakakeeny is a distinguished Boston travel journalist, with more than 20 years of experience at such prestigious traditional media outlets as NPR, Travel Weekly, and The Robb Report. Recently, he assembled a senior team in Boston of four experts to launch Travel Video PostCard as a new media outlet, understanding the shift from print journalism to social media and viral marketing.

Travel Video PostCard team members include Producer and TVP Co-Founder John Samellas, Chief Executive Med SelfEd; Travel Audio & Sound Engineer Bill Wangerin; National Travel & Lifestyle Journalist Julie Hatfield, long-time Boston Globe correspondent; and Photographer & Voiceover Artist Wendie Hansen.
