Why Trust Us?

We get it. There are thousands of gurus claiming to have the secret sauce when it comes to blogging, SEO, affiliate marketing, and other marketing strategies. So why should you trust us?

Because we are YOU. From 2014 to 2019, I tried everything to monetize my blog. I took course after course and did what the experts told me to do. From Instagram to Pinterest and everything in between, we didn’t make a penny from my efforts.

But in mid-2019, everything changed. I learned everything I could about SEO, affiliate marketing, and email marketing; it took me six months to go from 3,000 monthly readers to well over 50,000 monthly readers.

And we have the social proof to back it up. Here are a few of our favorite interviews and podcast episodes we’ve been featured in:


Our Favorite Travel Blogging Resources

Searching for top-notch travel blogging tools? We’ve been in the blogging game for quite some time, so we’ve got the inside scoop on what hits the mark and what misses.

Best Travel Blogging Hosting Provider

Above all, you’ll want to self-host your blog. This means that YOU are in complete control of your site. Every aspect is under your direct oversight, from customizing the design to managing the content. It’s like being the captain of your own ship.

Self-hosting also means you’re not tied down to the limitations or rules of a free hosting platform, giving you the freedom to expand, monetize, and grow your blog exactly as you envision.

Here are our two recommended hosting providers for new bloggers:

The #1 mistake I see new bloggers make is not self-hosting their site. We see a lot of new bloggers using platforms like WordPress.com, Blogger, or Wix. Unfortunately, these are NOT your best bet if you want to monetize your site. Believe me!

Best Blogging Courses & Coaching

Above all, you can’t go wrong with our #1 rated course and coaching package, Scale Your Travel Blog. It includes everything you could possibly need to get your blog started and monetized.
