In the future, Greatcontent and TripsByTips will bundle their activities under the umbrella of the Greatcontent Group. As an established brand and specialist for touristic content, TripsByTips will complement the group’s travel offering with experienced authors and expertise.
As a result of the merger, the company with 40 employees in Berlin will offer customers throughout Europe a specialized tourism offering for the production of editorial marketing and SEO content in more than 30 languages. As a result, one of the world’s largest author networks with more than 30,000 special interest authors in travel, fashion, automotive, finance, casino and e-commerce sectors will be created. Adding experienced travel authors offers the opportunity to further strengthen Greatcontent’s existing tourism specialisation.
In addition to the tourism specialization, TripsByTips also contributes process-related know-how and new features “The bundling of our resources in the areas of production and technology will help us to streamline our processes and grow faster,” says Gereon Frisch, Managing Director of TripsByTips GmbH. In the course of the merger, Gereon Frisch will join the management of the Greatcontent Group as Director Travel Solutions and member of the Executive Board. There, Gereon Frisch will be responsible for travel sales and key accounts as well as technical product development.
“Together with the TripsByTips specialist team, we look forward to strengthening our travel focus in addition to our existing industries and see this as a consistent step towards differentiating our service portfolio and further growth in Europe,” says Daniel Förstermann, CEO of Greatcontent.
