How To Start A Travel Blog – 4 Tips to Get You On Your Way
1. Take full advantage of social media
This will be one of the most important outlets for your content. Having an account on at least three of the most popular social media platforms is very important. Best ones to start: Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest. Pay a lot of attention to them and try posting at least to times per day on each.
Another good tip is to share not only your content but to share content from other bloggers. The audience will appreciate being able to find a lot of varied information on your accounts. It will allow you to get a wider audience much faster.
2. Learn all you can about SEO
Tons of people tend to think that figuring out SEO is extremely hard but once you start reading about it and practicing on how to do it properly you will learn that it is an amazing tool. The best part is that if you do it as you post each page and each post it won’t take too long.
In the long run this will help you get more visitors on your blog.
3. Post regularly
Come up with a posting schedule that you can easily maintain, try posting something new at least twice per week. This way your readers will be able to know exactly when they will find new content on your blog. Doing this makes it easier to build a loyal readership.
I also know that it is hard to be able to keep up the schedule. We are all human and we are all humans. So if you need writing help, there are tons of freelancers our there and companies offering to write them for you.
Another good option is asking a friend to do a guest post.
4. Create useful content
Telling all about your latest trip is fine. It can actually be really fun, but to really capture readers you should also include some information that readers can use to participate in that same adventure or any other useful facts that you can think of.
All of those are important however my most important tip is to work hard and to have patience. Success worn’t come overnight. It can take some time to build a blog that is large enough and important enough to get companies and brands to notice you. So don’t get discouraged. You will eventually start getting money and deals if you stay consistence.
