Turn Travel Blogging Into A Sustainable Career. It’s Not As Difficult As You Think

Tripoto

It all started when you began seeing a sudden spurt of travel blogs. And of course you couldn’t be left behind. You did some hard work and created a blog. And all the likes on Facebook made it worth it.

Cut to six months later. You haven’t been able to take a trip and your blog lies traffic-less. That’s the unfortunate reality of several online blogs. “Most travel blogs won’t last longer than a year,” says Matthew Karsten, a professional travel blogger.

But then there are also the few who are running a successful blog and even making money out of it. Read on to find out how to run a successful travel blog – whether as a hobby or a business.

  • Write what you want, but make it useful. Give information, take followers. That's how it works.

  • Don’t be generic, make your blog different. There's enough of duplicate content. Either be unique or get out of the race.

  • Never underestimate the reader. Write with integrity and truth. It's very easy to spot fake experiences.

  • To write interesting, be interesting. Roaming around at the mall won’t give you those juicy stories.

  • To grow, you need to identify your audience. Find them and promote yourself to them. Don’t be shy.

  • Be a social media rockstar. This includes regular posts and replying to comments.

  • Share your content on big websites. Take advantage of their large following.

  • Identify your true fans and build a mailing list. Reward them with exclusive freebies.

  • Learn the art of SEO – it sounds boring, but this is what will get you on the Google map.

  • Keep at it, don’t lose steam. Good things come to those who persist.
