If you are interesting in write down them all, you can then decide to sell your experiences and start getting money.
Never underestimate your stories. No matter how simple they are and how bad you are thinking about the way you are writing them, there will still people who are happily to find them. Because your stories can be the same with the others or the things you are considered as the simple ones could amaze people in unimaginable ways you have not been thought of before.
The interesting part about your special interest stories are, it is in a special topic or niche which is about traveling. And there have been many line of businesses especially those who are developing the travel websites want to hear more from the journey and adventures you have been through before. They are even openly publishing the information in the sites with certain menu or element to encourage the readers to send their stories right into their inbox.
Start selling your travel stories the right way to get money
Getting money selling travel stories need preparations. You needn’t only to write the stories down, but you’d better preparing the other relevant resources that can make your travel stories powerful. The first things you will need is the best image, video or other graphic resources.
Even, writing down about the travel experiences nowadays is so much important that you have the unique and high quality images. An article can contains some images and can be added with video if needed to make story understandably and to make it easy for you in delivering the messages.
Images and other graphic resources are powerful in getting reader’s attention, so the story you are sharing will be read by many people and the website owners will get the benefits in getting more page views. As the feedback, the travel site will gaining more money through ads network or any monetization methods they are using.
Look, I may not need to teach you how to write the super and wonderful article in here, you can actually do it yourself or there have been many online guides for that. So, I will only have to tell you how to monetize your travel stories.
The second things you will need to do to start trying to get money from selling your travel stories is to find the sites that are openly encourage their visitors to sell their story assets as I have been said before.
And it is really simple to do that just by the help of a Google and the right keywords to type. For the keywords formula, you can try to type these on search engine:
- Freelance writer + travel (it is your niche).
- Get paid travel writing.
- “get paid writing”+”travel”, etc.
All of the above keyword combinations will help you to find the lists of site articles along with the travel sites themselves that are offering the travelers to sell their travel stories to them.
If only I can give two recommendations for your writing, both would be; Write longer and write stories that are worth sharing. That’s it.
Another think you will need to prepare is your blog link so people can get to know about the writer which is you. But it doesn’t always the important requirement form the website owners. Sometimes, if you have only a social media profile, that will be good as well.
Selling travel stories through the above ways are possible to make money from as minimal as $50 per article and even up to thousands of Dollar depending on how your story is powerful. If you are in a trip for a week, let’s say that you will have 7 article inspirations and actually will be more than that. If there will be the websites that will buy them all with the above minimal price, then you will end up holding $350 in your bank account. What if you are able to get more than that?
Selling travel stories online have been the old opportunity to get more money. I won’t say it would be easy, but Ix think it will really be a worth-trying thing to do.
