      • how to land free trips

  • how to navigate every step of the process to land travel content marketing work, including phone calls and proposals
  • how to keep your hourly rate down so your bank account goes up
  • how to get work done on the road
  • how to write, step-by-step, 15 different types of travel articles
  • how to land guidebook and other traditional publishing deals

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 through all of them over the course of four months.

Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:

Monday, December 28, 5pm EST: How to Research on the Road and Find Saleable Ideas While Traveling

We have discussed how to get ideas for travel magazine articles from magazines and other types of research online, but some of the best ideas to report come from what you discover on your travels. Here is a look at how to use magazine pocket cheat sheets, getting lost on purpose, and hints of coolness from press releases and CVB sites to make sure you are gathering the most interesting and salable ideas on the road.

In this webinar, we’re going to break down specific techniques for idea capture and generation on the road so that you never find yourself staring at a blinking cursor and a blank email wondering what to pitch again.

Tuesday, December 29, 5pm EST: Fundamentals of Free Travel for Freelancers with Points and Miles

There has been a lot of talk in travel news in recent years about airlines cutting costs and taking away even the most basic amenities–including the value in their frequent flyer programs. But it’s actually become easier than ever to fly for free, thanks to another player in the points and miles market (credit card companies like Chase).

Before workshopping those joining us live and write-in participants, we’ll walk through a step-by-step plan to ensuring that your travel and spending actually result in free flights rather than points that never seem to do anything for you.
