Today I’d like to present a now successful 31-year-old businessman, born in Scotland and now based in New York, Jeremy Jauncey. This is the man behind one of the world’s most popular travel inspiration accounts on Instagram, Beautiful Destinations.
He has not only made a career from traveling, but has also inspired millions more to do the same. In fact, due to a huge diversification of his account and different social media profiles, now as a CEO, he is searching for talented photographers and videographers to take part in his successful account, as he presents it: “The World’s Coolest Job”.
With 450.000 followers in his individual Instagram account and 7,4 billion followers in the Beautiful Destinations account, Jauncey, besides having Youtube and Facebook accounts, his job is centered on Instagram, which made him famous. As I said, now based in New York, his job takes him traveling all around the world almost every week and shows every place he goes to posting pictures and videos in all his accounts. He is keen on using either reflex cameras, professional video cameras or even drones in order to catch the best shots.
Starting the popular page in 2012, with the aim of celebrating the beauty of the world and inspiring people to travel, he focuses on featuring the most stunning travel photographs, along with captions so followers can find out more about the area. From employing the top photographers and meticulously choosing every picture and video post, Jeremy Jauncey’s team has helped other companies in the industry. For example, his popularity rate helped Las Vegas’ Bellagio Hotel’s Instagram account to double its followers, or even the iconic sail-shaped Burj Al Arab in Dubai going from 6.000 followers to 65.000 under the team’s campaign. So is not just his own company that is benefiting from his Instagram expertise but also other travel businesses boosting their own social standing thanks to Beautiful Destinations.

So, getting you inside the magnificent work of this Instagram businessmen, I’d like to finish with a quote from an interview with the Daily Mail on traveling and his experience: “I always have a sense of excitement and anticipation that I’m starting a new adventure! For me, travel is all about people and culture. I really enjoy building relationships, learning and having new experiences. Travel broadens your horizons and teaches you so much about yourself and others that I find it incredibly inspiring.”
