Do you travel a lot or do you have plans on doing quite a bit of travelling? If so then you may want to consider making some money as a travel writer. Making some money as a travel writer is not that hard and there are a few ways to make some money from travel writing. If you enjoy travelling or plan on travelling and if you like to make money or would like to make money writing about your travels then follow the four tips outlined in this article. These four tips will tell you ways to make money as a travel writer.
Tip one- Sell your travel stories to newspapers and magazines that specialize in travelling. That’s right you could make some cold hard cash by selling your travel stories to newspapers and magazines for cash. There are a few ways to go about this and one of the ways is to contact the magazine of your choice and figure out what their interests are and then tell them that you are able to write an article about it and if they like the idea then they will probably agree to buy your article. Usually this tip works only if your articles are extremely well written or you have one amazing travel story to share, and even then you may not be able to make huge amounts of money but you could end up making some ‘ok’ cash.
Tip two- You could make some cash as a travel writer by simply writing travel articles for other peoples’ travel blogs or websites because websites and blogs are always on the lookout for new and fresh content so if you enquire to the website/blog of your choice and tell them you could write them articles for a set price or you could tell them you already have some articles that you are selling, either way just make sure you have a set price in your head ahead of time. This method can be a hassle at times but getting a few gigs this way can certainly add a few hundred dollars to your pocket easily.
Tip three- you could make money as a travel writer by simply starting your own travel blog and than blogging about your travels. You could then add Ads to your blog and make some cash that way. This method can take some time to get off the ground but the income potential for using this method is very good.
Tip four- You could write travel articles for writing project websites such as Elance as there are projects that you can complete and the payout can be very rewarding.
