Travel Writer Dreams to Soar Profits to New Heights

Updated: Mar 28th, 2010

What’s faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, and can leap tall buildings in a single jump? A travel writer who takes off by leaps and bounds and crosses all borders. He bounces from opportunity to opportunity and can give Tigger from Winnie the Pooh a run for his money!

Remember what Randy Pausch, asked in his “last lecture” asked “are you a Tigger or an Eeyore?”

Many opportunities exist for travel writers. It’s possible to soar in the direction of your dream, succeed, and reap the rewards. The question you must ask yourself is “do I really want this for myself?” If you answer with a resounding YES, then continue reading. If not, stop and go read something else.

One way to soar profits to new heights is through affiliate marketing. You could market Travelocity, Expedia, and Priceline. In fact, you could book a vacation through Travelocity, Expedia, or Priceline and then write about the experience. You will be an authority on booking online vacations.
