Rocket Ship Twitter Following Growth with Tweepi

Acquiring new Twitter followers is one of those great mysteries that seems impossible to crack.  Around the blogging circles, I always hear “I really need to work on my Twitter following” or “It’s so tough to build followers”.  I too had the same thoughts running through my mind as I was ramping up.  Growing at 100-200 followers a month was great and all but at that rate, I calculated that 3 and a half years to get to 10k followers.  That was completely...

Using Twitter Analytics to get deeper insights into your numbers

Twitter recently made their analytics dashboard completely open for all members of Twitter.  Now you can get quick and easy access to information that other third party sites have been leveraging for years now.  Although not perfect, it gives you some pretty good snapshots of what’s going on with your Twitter account. I’m a numbers junkie and I’m not ashamed of it though sometimes I wonder if I spend too much time hitting the refresh key. Accessing your dashboard Make sure...

How to Properly Format Your Blog Post with Headings

Today I talk about a seemingly trivial topic but I’ll be honest, figuring out to properly format my blog post took over half a year to figure out. Having a properly formatted post has many benefits that aren’t really apparent at first.  Although creating a blog post on WordPress may seem like exactly the same as how you’d write a document in say Word, it’s actually a bit more involved than that. Not quite like Microsoft Word Alright so let’s go back to my example...

Creating Your Media Kit in 10 Easy Steps

If there’s one thing that’ll make your travel blog stand out from the crowd to a sponsor and convince them to spend hundreds of dollars on you for their next campaign, it’s the media kit. As a travel blogger, having that polished media kit will easily give you the edge in securing sponsorship over others that haven’t caught on yet. The media kit is an integral part of any blog when you’re at the point when you want to reach out to brands, PR, agencies and other...

Facebook Groups Travel Bloggers Should Know About

When I first started blogging, I had the mentality of “if I blog it, they will come” but was disillusioned when I realized this wasn’t the case.  As awesome your content is, building a following and readership just doesn’t happen overnight.  Does that mean things are hopeless and you have to rely on SEO?  The answer is NO. In the past I talked about the importance of getting yourself out there and meeting other travel bloggers through local events like Travel Massive...

7 SEO Basics and How To Rock At It

SEO may seem like a mystery for some but the honest truth is that when you’re starting off and don’t have much of an audience, SEO matters.  At the beginning you won’t be able to rely on a steady flow of loyal readers.  If your blog is anything like mine, at least 60% of your traffic will all come from Google.  That wasn’t by some sort of fluke but putting some stuff in place to make sure you can rock at optimizing for search engines. SEO Basics Search Engine...

TBB 001: The Inaugural Travel Blog Breakthrough Podcast

Welcome to the very very first episode of the Travel Blog Breakthrough.  This little idea has been in my head for the past couple months and I finally got around to making it happen this week.  As with most of my success so far, it’s always been a mentality of “just get it done and out there”.  If something just stays in your head as distant dream, it’ll often stay that way. Who knows how all of this will go down.  Will I even make it past 10 episodes?  I certainly...

Travel Bloggers get out and join your local Travel Massive

If there’s one thing I learned from blogging all these years is the power of networking, being part of the larger travel blogging community and making friends with so many others that are doing what you’re doing.  Coming from the startup world, I’ve been a huge advocate of “getting out and meeting people” and as you’ll learn below, Travel Massive is simply amazing for travel bloggers.

Automating Twitter

When I first started blogging, I barely used Twitter.  It wasn’t because I didn’t want to try new technologies but it just wasn’t something any of my friends were on nor something they understood when I asked them about it. So as I learned more about what was going on in the travel blogverse, I warmed up to the idea that “man I really need to get on this Twitter thing”.  I’m sure a lot of you are or were in my boat. Now Twitter alone is a massive topic...

Ways to Make Money Travel Blogging

As travel bloggers we all love to travel and I think for most, if not all, that’s the reason why we start writing and sharing our stories.  Eventually things get a bit serious and aside from building a following, getting more viewers to your site (i.e. religiously refreshing Google Analytics) and well travelling some more, the only other thing is this… The ultimate question: “How do you make money while blogging?” That’s a gosh darn good question and to be honest...

How to Set Up Twitter Cards

We all know the power of social media, Twitter, building a following, pushing out content blah blah blah.  Today is not one of those days where I talk about that.  Instead, I’m very excited to tell you guys about a new feature that Twitter launched:  Twitter Cards.  I had a whole bunch of other topics I wanted to get to but this honestly just couldn’t wait. I first found out about Twitter Cards actually through one of my SEO plugins I use called All in One SEO.  One of the...
