Tips To Find Sponsors For Your Blog Trip To Europe

If you run a travel blog which is fairly new and doesn’t help you land into many FAM trips, then do not worry. Travelling the world on FAM trips isn’t a big deal. In fact, the reality is, if you continue blogging and gaining more followers everyday, even if on a slow rate, you’re eventually going to end up attending FAM trips. Brands and travel boards are constantly looking for bloggers, in new markets, to deliver their brand message and convince more people to visit them and buy their services. But are they contacting you? I guess not! So, as I always say, and do, why not you contact your potential partners. Send them an email introducing yourself and your blog, tell them about your/your blog’s reach, and how you/your blog can help redirect your readers to their website and social media accounts. Do not forget to share a Media Kit though. [Read: How To Prepare A Media Kit For Your Travel Blog] Tips To Find Sponsors For Your Blogging Trip To Europe Europe is …

How Blogging Helped Me Travel Europe For 2 Months, In Less Than 70k Rupees

One question I was particularly asked, after returning home from my two-month long backpacking trip across Europe, is how did I afford to travel in Europe for so long. People around me wanted to know how do I afford to keep travelling, despite not having a job for the past many years. Those who knew me personally and had a little idea about how blogging and travelling-in-budget help me altogether to do this thought that I still have my dad or someone else in the family supporting me financially. A few high-school buddies even mocked, stating that I might be into smuggling drugs or busy working illegal ideas, after repeating, yet once again, the usual family sponsorship thing. And when I spoke in defence, furthermore, and confessed of my innocence, declaring “it’s my blog that supports and I try not to spend too much while travelling… and that’s how I’ve come this far” they called me a Dishonest Don. “We all know your stories fucker, now tell us how you make money in simple words,” …

How Much It Costed Me To Run A Blog So Far And How Much Has It Helped

The ideal way to calculate the usefulness of a business or a product is by comparing the total effort and money invested in it with how much you gained from it. It has been approximately one and a half years since I’ve been blogging now. During all this time I’ve personally calculated the benefits of blogging almost every day, but it would be only unfair if I kept the secret to myself and not shared. Though of course, it’s practically impossible to go back in time and share every tiny detail of my personal blogging-benefit, moreover asking someone exactly how much money they make is very personal, and it’s not something I’m entirely comfortable posting, but I’ll still give you an idea. Three Ways How My Blog Helps Me… Direct Earning Since the last six months or so, I’ve been earning somewhere around 10-30 thousand Indian Rupees a month, from my blog. And to do so, I use a mix of different revenue sources — ranging from sponsored posts to running Google Adsense to affiliate links …

How To Start A Travel Blog In 7 Easy Steps

Travel blogging has given me the freedom and the financial help I needed to make travelling a full time career! Before I start, let me warn you that travel blogging isn’t as easy as it looks. Bloggers like me rarely share the huge amount of behind-the-scenes fuckups that go into making this lifestyle possible. My journey, too, has been a rollercoaster ride – but to tell you the truth, all the efforts were totally worth it. Travelling is already an interesting profession, and blogging makes it a little more exiting, and motivating. Moreover when you want to make travelling a full time career, you need to look for ways to make money out of it. To me, there seemed no better option other than blogging. It has taken me more than one year to become a professional blogger – professional in the sense that I’ve now started making money out of it. So today I want to share a useful guide about how to get started with blogging, including a few important tips I didn’t know when …

Getting Your First Few Sponsorships

I know I took a long time in delivering my promised tips on How to Score a FAM Trip. And I apologise for that. The problem is, I am one of those unskilled writers who need some inspiration, a fresh perspective perhaps before they can pen down their thoughts. And I got my inspiration just a couple of days few, hence I am writing. What inspiration, you asked? For my Europe backpacking trip, which is happening sometime between March and April, next year, Basel Tourism Board (in Switzerland) and German Tourism Board, have just confirmed that they’ll be supporting FootlooseDev, on his trip. Though they’re not paying me any money (I did not even ask for it), they’re offering a few days of free stay, transport, guided tour(s) and activities – in short, they’ll put a complete itinerary in place. Isn’t that awesome? It sure is. Blogging itself is awesome, and rewarding if you know how to do it right! It has been 11+ months now since I’ve been blogging. And I’ve started getting amazing free …
