Issue #92: The 5-Step Sales Process for Travel Writers
December 14, 2015
Greetings Fellow Travel Writers and Bloggers!

Selling your travel articles can be a daunting task, especially when you’re a novice. It seems like there are so many things to do to pitch an article, and so many questions about each step!

This week’s article is for beginning travel writers who aren’t sure what steps to take to sell your stories and get them published. The article explains the best sequence to follow - and there are only 5 steps!

It’s a simple series of steps. But I’m often surprised at how many writers do them out of sequence, or skimp on some of the steps, and then quash any chance they have of getting their stories published.

Read the article to make sure you’re doing it right …

The Complete Travel Writer's Marketing Workshop: Save $250

If you can’t sell your articles, you don’t get to write them.

Most travel writing workshops leave out some important details. They don’t show you how to successfully sell your stories so you can get paid and get some travel perks.

If you’re looking for a workshop where you will learn how to sell your stories successfully, from pitching and selling your travel articles to requesting comps, my Complete Travel Writer’s Marketing Workshop is for you.

Leap past all the beginner writer’s mistakes with query letters, working with editors, wrangling travel perks, and the myriad other hurdles that crop up in freelance travel writing.

This is not your everyday, run-of-the-mill travel-writing workshop. It’s not for dreamers - it’s for people who really want to launch their travel writing business and take it to a new level.

I have intentionally scheduled this workshop early next year so you can use it to plan out your story ideas, get assignments and line up some perks for your 2016 travels - and I will help you do this.

You won’t find this kind of guidance anywhere else.

If you enjoy learning in a small, supportive atmosphere, and you like the opportunity to ask questions - and get them answered - this workshop is for you.

Is it time to invest in yourself so you can reach your travel writing goals?

See how far you can take your travel writing in 2016.

‘Friend’ Me!
If you haven’t already done so, please ‘Friend’ me (Roy Stevenson Freelance Writer) on Facebook. My posts are generally travel writing-related and I try to keep it fun.

My Saturday morning ‘Where’s Roy’ Facebook post has been particularly popular! I post a travel photo—usually with me in it—and you have to guess where the heck I am. A few friends and subscribers have proved particularly adept at this.

That’s all for now.

Until next time, you keep pitching....
