Issue #82: 4 Reasons to Get Published on Travel Websites
October 05, 2015
|Greetings Fellow Travel Writers and Bloggers!
It’s now been eight full years since I embarked on my travel writing journey. In that time I’ve had 1,001 articles published in just under 200 different publications. When I started this travel writing gig I started out by pitching primarily print publications, and occasionally tossed a random story onto a travel website, just for practice.
Then, in my fourth year, after several print magazine editors mentioned that they couldn't find much evidence of my travel writing online, it finally sunk in that I needed to establish a stronger online presence.
I targeted several travel websites with my stories and have since had exactly 100 stories published on 22 different travel websites. Apart from magazine editors requesting links to some of my online stories, there are other excellent benefits to this practice.
Today’s featured article explains my strategies for placing 10% of my articles online.
Read on to learn how this practice can help you.
4 Reasons to Get Published on Travel WebsitesNo matter where you are in the travel writing game, one thing that comes with big benefits is getting published on travel websites.
Travel writers come in all shapes and sizes. There are writers who only want to be published in print, and there are writers who are only published online. There are full-time freelance writers and there are dabblers, and everything in between. There are photographers who write, and travel bloggers who are photographers. The possibilities are endless.
Regardless of where you are on this spectrum, you should have some travel articles published online. Getting a few of your articles posted on someone else’s quality, respected travel website can benefit you in several ways.
Here's how it can help you:
Please share this e-zine with friends, family or anyone who may be interested in travel writing and can benefit from some free marketing and travel writing information.
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.
