2021 – Year in Review

"RV websites served 
+750M average monthly visits worldwide. With 9 BILLION for the year"
"That's a larger audience than Vox, Buzzfeed, Complex, Bustle, Pop Sugar, Mashable, Variety, and Rolling Stone 😱"
"That's 100 times more visitors a month than Disney World."

Quote "One of the Top 20 US 
multi-platform digital media properties in the world" Attributed to Comscore.com

Quote "The largest digital media company in the US" Attributed to the New York Times
A newspaper stack beside the caption "did we mention we made the front page?"
"One webby award. Shout-out to C-net's Claire Reilly"
"1 New 
Corporate Website. Built by a small team of engineers  (most of whom learned to code at RV! 👏👏👏 )"
"about 40k pieces of content published. All aimed at helping people make life’s most important decisions. 💪"
"18k Media Mentions. People be talking about us 👀"
"More than 1.3M Product Clicks on Cyber Monday. That’s the same as the annual visitor count for the Space Needle in Seattle"

Our Brands: Evolving Around “You”

Several RV brands launched major initiatives, all focused around our shared purpose.

Bankrate For Every Next
C-Net For You
Lonely Planet: For explorers everywhere
The Points Guy app
U-Switch Stay put campaign

A Force for Good

RV Brands used their platform to give back:

"Healthline Transform"
Gamespot logo + Able Gamers Charity logo, along with the caption; "Raised $155k"
TPG & Rainbow Railroad
"TPG matched dollar for dollar up to $100k
Amount raised: $105k (105% of goal)
164 supporters"

The Multiplier Effect

And often collaborated together to make a positive impact:

The logos of both Bankrate and Best Colleges in collaboration
The logos of both Lonely Planet and Healthline in collaboration
The logos of both C-net and Next Advisor in collaboration
The logos of both Best Colleges and Golden Door Scholars in collaboration

Our Culture

"Virtually the same. Important Additions:"
"We added 4 new ERGs, totalling 7."
"25+ company-wide events were held virtually"

Leaning into HYBRID

One of our belief statements is we believe everything is written in possible – but we never thought that would apply to the way we work.

"2000+ Employees invested in their WFH setup. We promise it was all necessary"
"970 new RVers onboarded,
and 98 interns interned virtually"
"Slack Messages sent: Over 44m. & One dog rescued via slack (shout-out #rv-pups channel)"
"We connected in more than 8500 community-related Slack channels:About running, music, work, and (1) channel entirely devoted to Trader Joes "
"We joined more than 700k Zoom meetings. Let’s try less next year, OK?"
"Meeting minutes: over 100m. More than half of which were not on mute*
*We’re pretty sure"

Our Impact

194 RVers actively volunteered with the two nonprofits RV supports: Road to Hire and Golden Door Scholars.
