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 2, 5pm EST: The Secrets of Six-Figure Travel Writers
As a travel writer earning six figures for several years, I used to get a lot of questions at industry conferences about just how exactly I did it, so I started coaching new, struggling and transitioning travel writers along the journey.
In this webinar, we explore the misconceptions that keep people from achieving their income goals as a travel writer and you’ll leave with tools to increase your income right away.
Tuesday, September 3, 5pm EST: How to Become Part of an Editor’s Stable
To have a stable source of recurring revenue–the best way to build a sustainable, worry-free, forward-looking freelance travel writing career–writing for magazines, you need to stop writing for a magazine just once and focus on long-term relationships.
We look at how to build those relationships with editors with copious quotes right from the sources that I’ve drawn from editor panels at recent events with major newsstand titles represented.
Wednesday, September 4, 5pm EST: Annual Review Part 1: What is Standing Between You and Your Travel Writing Goals Success
As the beginning of our series on working through a comprehensive inventory of your business, where it’s going wrong, and a clear tactical plan that fits with your life to move you through the next year, we devote a full hour to discussing the most common issues that keep travel writers spinning their weeks and how we will chart a course through them in the coming weeks.
Thursday, September 5, 5pm EST: Annual Review Part 2: How to Clearly Catalog the Work and Opportunities You Have Now to See Where You Need To Go
This week, we dive headfirst into an honest look at exactly what each of you has in your income, relationship, and opportunity inventory as we continue our series on annual reviews as a travel writer.
We not only walk through exactly what data on your business to collect for your review, but also how to draw conclusions from it as to what you need to do differently or more of in the year ahead.
*BONUS* This work will also give you a huge leg up on your taxes, in addition to positioning you to be just the helper your favorite editors need this time of year.
Friday, September 6, 5pm EST: Annual Review Part 3: Taking Stock of the Past Year: How to SWOT Yourself Into Shape
In the previous webinar, we gathered the data we needed to really see what happened in your last year as a freelance travel writer and began to dive into what conclusions and next steps you could draw from there.
This webinar takes things a step further, adopting the SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, threats) business analysis for the travel writer to uncover what steps you should look to include in your plan for 2018.
