What our previous clients say…

“Pete and Dalene Heck were a pleasure to work with and easily stand out among the crowded travel blogger group. Their professionalism combined with impressive reach and more importantly, engagement with their audience, puts them in the top tier of all bloggers. Because their blog posts were well written, accurate, and heartfelt, they were some of the most popular posts written about Maui and therefore, elicited a genuine interest from readers expressing a desire to visit the island. I would jump at the opportunity to work with them again.”
Wendy Harvey | Visit Maui
“Your posts are my favourite this year and I’d say that in the face of every blogger or journalist who’d ask me.”
Hugo Leclerc | Tourism Montreal
“Working with Hecktic Media Inc. and the travel blogging community has been the best marketing investment we’ve made to date. The authenticity of the bloggers, the natural synergies between our audiences, and the connections we’ve made have helped us to grow and engage a passionate community of travelers in a way that we have not found via other marketing channels. After many months of working with HMI, we continue to find their guidance and expertise in blogger relations and marketing of the highest value.”
