You can grab access to all of our past webinars (and a ton of other resources you can’t find anywhere else) with a subscription to our Dream Buffet or grab them one-by-one when you need them in our On-Demand Webinar Library for a set with the video, audio, transcript, and slides.
But we also air a free replay of one of our travel writing classes each and every weekday.
Each weekday at 2pm PST / 5pm EST / 10pm GMT / 11pm CET (and 9am AEDT Tues-Sat), we show one webinar from our archives, rotating though all of them over the course of four months.
Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:
Monday, September 16, 5pm EST: Taking Control of Your Ideas, Pitches, and Follow-Ups
You can have all the article ideas in there world, but if you can’t find the information you need to pitch them to the right markets, you’re toast. We’ll explore how to capture ideas the second you have them, store them for later, and how to adapt best practices to what works for you.
Tuesday, September 17, 5pm EST: How to Earn Big with Travel Content Marketing
Have you had a blog at any time in the past? Even if you never got the numbers to where you felt like you could become a professional blogger, you have a valuable skill set that travel companies and tourism boards need.
In this webinar, we talk about the different opportunities for travel content marketing writing–from blog posts to content strategy to choosing and editing photos for Instagram–what kind of pay you can expect, and where to start looking for these opportunities.
Wednesday, September 18, 5pm EST: Tourism Board and Company Blogs vs. Personal Blogs and How to Make the Jump — With Special Guest from Visit Tucson
In this webinar, I bring in Dan Gibson, the director of communications from Visit Tucson. Dan himself was formerly a journalist before making the jump into the tourism board side, so he has a unique perspective on what you need to know to transition into this type of writing.
I go through examples of the content travel companies and tourism boards are looking for before Dan comes in to talk about his own transition and how freelancers can work with tourism boards like his.
In our initial series on finding travel content marketing clients, we looked in-depth at the process of identifying, pitching, calling, and writing proposals for travel content marketing gigs of all stripes.
But in this webinar, we follow up on our live call with the director of communications for Visit Tucson and discuss exactly what statistics and industry terms you need to know to get yourself in the door with, fielding assignments from, and signing recurring contracts with tourism boards and travel companies.
We continue looking at where the big money in travel writing is hiding in part two of our series on travel content marketing writing: how to identify the people you can approach for this type of work, whether companies or tourism boards.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
