As a travel blogger, Instagram is perhaps one of the best tools at our disposal to building your brand. While it sounds easy, it is a heck of a lot more work than how easy it seems popular Instagrammers seem to draw in likes and follows. Not to fret though because I’ve brought in Melissa of A Broken Backpack to spill all of her secrets to success and how she was able to get to 10,000 IG followers in a matter of 6 months.

*madly typing away* – This is me trying my best to catch up. What I’ve learned from blogging is that no matter how much you seem to get done, there’s always more to do. I love that there’s always lots of content to create but at the same time you kind of wish things weren’t a frenzy all the time. I’m way behind on Travel Blog Breakthrough but I know there’s a lot of interest for these income reports so here we go with May.
You let things slide a little and it’s May already! I know many of you look forward to these every month and I have to apologize for not being able to keep up but as bloggers you all know that it is hard to keep up with just one blog let alone two. Not to worry though, there’s still a lot I want to do for you guys with Travel Blog Breakthrough and if you keep reading you’ll see what I’ve been up to. Without further ado, let’s look at the first four months of...
Chatting with other travel bloggers is always a treat. Each one of us have carved our own path to success and what has got them where they are to day is so different. While that’s the case, that’s not to say that we can’t learn from each other and that’s why these podcasts are so powerful. In this one with Stephen Palmer of Irish Around Oz, he shares his wealth of knowledge of Facebook ads and e-mail marketing. This one’s jam packed with information so...
Just like that we’re in 2016. Everything resets and it’s a chance for reflection and looking forward to all the things you want to accomplish. Set the bar high. Shoot for the stars. With one more income and traffic report remaining, this closes the books on 2015. I’m curious just as you are how I did.
As you start exploring different ways to make money travel blogging, affiliate marketing is something you’ll naturally encounter alongside display advertising. However, the story I hear time and time again from other bloggers is that because it’s hard to be successful at it, they end up giving up. There are a ton of affiliate marketing guides out there but none that are really focused on how it works for travel bloggers. With this new travel blogger’s toolkit article, I...
Happy Holidays everyone! This is going to be the last income and traffic report of 2015 so let’s make this a good one. This one is also going to be jam packed with information as I’ll finally have an opportunity to do look back at the last 12 months and see how it’s tallied up and things that I’ve learned this year.
Hey guys! Can you believe that it’s been one year since I started these income and traffic reports? With this being the one year anniversary, I thought I’d try to change things up. I don’t know about you but these have been getting a little repetitive so why don’t we blow it all up! For those of you that are just joining Travel Blog Breakthrough, first of all, WELCOME! And secondly, let’s do an intro of what these reports are all about.
Affiliate marketing is scary. I get that. I had trouble figuring it out and continue to learn how to do a better job today. With that, I thought it’d make sense to bring in an expert in the field to chat about this whole business of making money through links. It’s jam packed with info so hope you enjoy! : Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS
One of the first things that happened to me as a travel blogger that gave me feedback that I was heading in the right direction was when I was invited to my first press trip. This was in large part thanks to a referral from another travel blogger (again…the power of networking!) and I was excited as heck. Thing was, I didn’t really know what to expect or how to prepare. I ended up having to learn and improvise on the fly but you don’t have to. My interview with...
There are a ton of podcast out there and when Jason asked to interview me for his own show, I was delighted. The tables are turned this time around and I thought I’d give you some insight on some very relevant information about travel blogging. : Play in new window | Download | EmbedSubscribe: iTunes | Android | RSS
September was a kick ass month for Going Awesome Places all things considered. I cracked $1000 for only the second time this year. It’s not time to pop the champagne yet because there’s still a lot more work to be done! This month, I’m going to try something a little different. Instead of all the detail I’ve done in the past, I’m going to keep things higher level to get you the information you care about up front. Let me know what you think!
The month of August was another good month. While I haven’t been able to crack the $1000 mark, I’ve been happy with the consistency considering I’ve been basically blogging on a part-time basis. I think a lot of this has just come down to setting the right things in place and letting it run. With it being the summer, I was more than happy with this.
First of all, I have to apologize for getting the July income report out SO late. It’s been a whirlwind summer of travel and between this and Going Awesome Places, it’s definitely been tough to keep up. The good news is that the podcasts are going again and I’m catching up on these reports as well. So winding the clock a little, I had a chance to dig into how July’s performance was. While it wasn’t as good as I had hoped it to be, money still trickled in...
