Here’s what we’ve got for you this week:
Monday, February 4, 5pm EST: How to Build Serious Business Partnerships at Travel Conferences
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’ll 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’re moving 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’ll handle how to navigate the transition.
In this webinar, we’re wrapping up our series on specific ways to move into travel content marketing and moving past the landing-the-gig stage and into the what-to-do-once-you’ve-got-the-client phase.
So many small travel businesses, whether tour companies or concierge travel bookers, are built around the judgment and expertise of the owner. A blog showcasing those unique advantages is a no-brainer for these companies tomorrow build trust with prospective customers, but the owner rarely has the time–or the writing chops.
We’ll unpack the process of creating ghostwritten content for your travel blogging clients.
As a freelance travel writer, your days are composed of some balance of three things: marketing your travel articles, writing the articles, and traveling to commissioned research articles or those that you’ll pitch next.
In this webinar, we cover are approaches to partitioning your time on the road, maximizing efficiency in times that don’t at first look like work opportunities, and tricks for being productive anywhere.
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.
