Travel the World for Free: How to be a successful travel blogger / social media influencer and get paid to travel.
A Signature Workshop by Ajay Jain: June 20, 2015 – Kunzum Travel Café, New Delhi
Travel bloggers are a busy lot today. They are being wooed by travel companies, hotels, airlines, tourism boards, cruises and other service providers to write about them. Their trips get sponsored, and enable them to even make money.
Would you like to be one such influential travel blogger yourself? Ajay Jain, one of the world’s leading travel media influencers, will show you how in a full day workshop.
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
Anyone can be a travel writer. You can do this full time, or part time while you pursue a parallel career. You can do it for the money, or just for the joy of being able to travel. And you can start at any age – from your teens right up to your post retirement years. Your education and experience are no barriers either. As long as you have a flair to express yourself, and are willing to back it with research and hard work, you can make a go of it.
DOES ONE HAVE TO BE FULL TIME BLOGGER FOR THIS?
No, there are many bloggers globally who pursue their passion part time. They could be holding a day job, be studying somewhere and have other occupations. In fact, it usually works best to start blogging part time till you build good readership and revenues.
