Why advertise on a travel blog?
♥ Tap in to a large social network with hardly any effort
The blogosphere is large and diverse, pulling in thousands of clients with varying interests. When you advertise on TV or in a newspaper, you reach an equally large crowd, but have no way of knowing if they are interested in your product or not. The beauty of advertising on a travel blog is that this field has already been specifically narrowed down by the blogger. You get the same large pool of potential clients, except that all of them actually already have an interest in your product, and therefore there is more chance that your product will be seen by your target audience at any time and any place.
♥ It’s cheap!
Advertising on a blog is a low-cost and easy option that will help you to create permanent backlinks to your own website at a fraction of the price you would pay to advertise elsewhere online. What’s more, the blogger – already working hard to promote their blog – does all the hard work for you. For sponsored trips, you only pay once to front the cost of the trip, but the blog post referencing your company stays online forever. As the blog grows in popularity and ranking, so will the link to your site.
♥ You can get up close and personal with your client base
With sponsored trips, the voice and information provided by the blogger gives readers an honest and dependable description of what your company is really like. Readers can get more of a feel of your company, and since they trust the blogger, they will trust their opinions on which companies are worth taking note of. As readers are also able to comment on content, you can use these comments to find out what people really think of your company, and learn more about your potential clients to enable better advertising in the future.
♥ It improves your SEO
The backlinks you will get as a result of advertising on an external website will help your own website’s google ranking to grow, therefore driving more traffic to your company.
Why advertise on Girl And The World?
♥ Large readership
Girl And The World only started running in November 2011, but it has already received over 10,000 views (true as of December 23rd 2011). That equates to 5,000 views every month from readers interested in what you have to offer. A figure that is constantly growing.
♥ Targeted content
Girl And The World is primarily about solo female travel within Asia. This is a niche subject, which all advertising content must fit into. If you advertise with me you get an extremely targeted audience of readers who are doubtless already interested in your product.
♥ Dependable reviews
Any sponsored trips or posts on Girl And The World are written impartially, providing completely honest reviews to readers. Since readers can trust the content of Girl And The World, they can trust that what is written about your company is honest too. My readers are my main priority, and I will never misinform them.
♥ Professional writing to improve your company image
I already work as a professional freelance writer in the travel and tours industry. I have written content for multiple travel companies in Sri Lanka, and am a published journalist, with articles in a number of international publications such as That’s Shanghai, Hull Daily Mail, Hullfire Magazine, and London’s Ribbed Magazine. If I undertake a sponsored trip with your company, you can count on me to produce a quality write up, with honest opinions and accurate information. I put a lot of time and effort into my posts, and will never produce any sloppy write-ups of trips.
♥ Your content will grow in popularity over time
Posts written about sponsored trips will remain on Girl And The World permanently. This means that your company will remain advertised on a blog that is continually growing in readership, allowing your content to reach a progressively wider audience over time. As of February 2012 I will be on the road full-time, with no other job to distract me for the entirety of the year. Blogging will be my primary priority, and I aim to increase the readership of the blog each month. Advertising with Girl And The World gives you the opportunity to jump on the back of a fledgling business and watch as it grows, allowing your company to grow with it.
