Boston…New Media Travel Founder and CEO Kaleel Sakakeeny has begun linking the popular, one-minute, sound rich Travel Video PostCards (TVP) to the company’s Foursquare travel account. (

Sakakeeny said, “Adding location-specific video to the travel tips enhances the value of Foursquare and New Media Travel to the traveler seeking the newest and best information with unique images and timely tips.”

Fun and offbeat tips include:how to foil pickpockets in major tourist destinations; and the best attractions for experiencing London with young children.

Typically, Sakakeeny says, the travel tips are located in highly-trafficked places like airports and hotels and have quickly generated a significant group of followers.

Emerging Technologies and Location Based Services Strategist Eric Leist agrees. “Adding the Travel Video PostCards to Foursquare puts New Media Travel ahead of the curve because we recognize consumers are embracing mobile technology more and more everyday.”

New Media Travel is poised to offer this new social marketing tool to the travel industry to increase traffic and customize the travel experience. These Foursquare campaigns are the newest elements in the New Media Travel robust offering of social networking and marketing content and services.

Sakakeeny believes that Foursquare-driven tips coupled with quality, brief location-specific videos makes a strong marketing tool for destinations and the travel industry in general.
