How To Become Travel Blogger

Hello, Today, I'm going to talk to you about how to start a travel blog. That helps you travel for free or get little freebies. Here and there but a travel blog that is a real business, that makes money, that can change your life.

Travel bloggers out there the following tips will help get you started with your very own blog the first step is choosing your passion it seems pretty and blogging has to keep your interest.

How To Become Travel Blogger

And talk about the top 10 things that you can do to have a successful travel blogger. Most important thing number one about building.

A successful travel blog is, be original. The most important thing that you can do is develope your unique niche.

Yes, there are thousands of travel blogs but if you think about it, there are also thousands of restaurants all over planet earth.

Does that mean you shouldn't start and open a restaurant? Or that a new restaurant can't be successful? No.

Travel blogging is a super young industry.  It'sonly been about a decade now that people could actually make solid money with a travel blog.

So, when you think about it that way, if you can innovate and come up with a really clever niche then you've got a really good chance of succeeding.

Really think about what is the one thing that you love so much that you're obsessed with it.

Write Guest Posts

So, when you're first starting out, use that extra time to your advantage by writing amazing content for other sites that points back to your site.

This helps for search engine optimization. This also really helps for getting an audience.

Now, the best way to approach people with your articles is to, number one, have something really special that you've already written that has amazing images to go along with it and that goes with the subject of their site.

Create a blog website

Building your social media followers. So you start at the blog you know what you're blogging your how and you invested in it and you want to get people to read your content of course. So what do you start building yourself up on social media ?

Social media is key Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and YouTube get all the social media channels you can and pour your time into it. If you're going into travel blogging instagram is so important because Travel blogging is all about transporting your readers to a different destination and photos and videos are credible for that.

So definitely embrace Instagram it's one of the easiest ways to gain a following quickly and to drive people to your website and definitely look at Twitter and Facebook as well to share your posts.

Create Your Social Media Platform

And lastly, make sure that you give the person time to respond before you approach other people with the same article.

You don't wanna look spammy and like you're just trying to get backlinks because trust me, whoever you're approaching gets a lot of emails that are like that.

So, you just wanna make sure that you come across as genuine, that they know that you're also a travel blogger, and that you're not trying to sneak a link in their for a company and that what you're providing is going to give them value.

Serve Your Audience

You should focus on serving your audience. And this is really good advice because if every time that you get started on something you think about how it benefits others, you're more likely to find success.

Think about it. If you write an article that is just about me, then other people might not necessarily connect with it in the way that you're hoping for.

In order to have mass appeal, you wanna make sure that you're really providing something of value. Maybe that's something that's funny and makes people laugh and just brightens their day a little bit.

Maybe that is the end all be all guide for whatever it is that you're writing about. Another way is to make them feel really good about themselves and to be relatable. 

So, if you write something that people can really connect with here, they're more likely think about you long after they've read the post and to wanna go back to your site to see updates. Put some soul into it and make it something that is appealing for people beyond just yourself.

Do Learning

It should be really obvious that you need to have a clear reason why you are blogging but a lot of people simply don't. Don't be afraid to spend money. Because businesses need money to grow.

It takes you through the basics of how to build and start a travel blog using WordPress, how to grow website with  search engine optimization and social media, and how to really approach it from the right angle from the beginning.

Become Part Of The Travel Blogging Community

Not to pay attention to your competition. In the beginning, I do think it's important to do some market research.

See what other bloggers are doing that works for them, ask questions in the Facebook groups, become part of the community so that you atleast have an idea of what the current environment is like.

But once you establish yourself, don't pay attention to what anyone else is doing anymore. It can kill your creativity when you're comparing yourself to other people and no matter what.

Logging into Facebook or reading other blogs. I'm not saying you should stop reading blogs for pleasure.  I am saying that there is a line at which point it starts to be unhealthy for you and your brand.

Instead of trying to do what everyone else is doing, do you. Do what you do best and don't worry about the competition.

Best of luck!
