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 23, 5pm EST: How to Craft a Travel Content Marketing Pitch that Gets Attention
In the third portion of our coverage on travel content marketing writing, I break down the steps of putting together your own pitch to send cold to companies and tourism boards you think would benefit from your services, including powerful statistics on content marketing ROI to include and just how much information to give away to keep your prospect interested without setting them up to go execute your plan without you.
Tuesday, September 24, 5pm EST: How to Close the Deal: Proposals and Phone Calls that Get Results
In the last few webinars we covered what types of opportunities are out there, how to identify the right companies to approach, and how to write your travel content marketing pitch so that people will be compelled to reply. Here we walk through how to qualify what a prospect needs on the phone and then put it into a tantalizing collaboration proposal.
Wednesday, September 25, 5pm EST: Pricing, Negotiating, and Contracts (for Travel Content Marketing and Magazine Writing)
In this webinar, in addition to covering the sections to make sure you include in your travel writing contracts, I cover general pricing and negotiation. Here you can find out what you “should” be charging in different situations…along with what you could be asking for when an editor names a price to you.
Made up stat (from covering conferences for magazines for four years and attending them for work for considerably longer), but I really think that only around 2-5% of people follow up with those they get cards from at conferences. And it’s on the decline. And those that do follow up by and large make it all about them.
In this webinar, you hear how to be the one that walks away with the juicy content writing gig, sponsorship contract, or kick-ass individual fam trip.
In this webinar, we move past the landing-the-gig stage and into the what-to-do-once-you’re-got-the-client phase.
Even if you’ve had your own blog for years, tune in to learn the best practices in blogging technique and style when writing for companies and tourism boards, which are trying to provide information quick to readers who may have never visited their site before and may never come back again once they’ve gotten what they needed.
It’s a different audience from a personal blog that readers tune into because they love your personality, and we handle how to navigate the transition.
Don’t be late! All the free replays start right on time, and the system isn’t able to accept late attendees.
