Someone or some people are possibly wondering how much money is potentially able to be earned from travel blogging and creative ways to monetize their self hosted WordPress travel related blog.
This is a very good question to ask about how much money travel bloggers make. Travel bloggers have the potential to earn an unlimited salary cap because the beauty of creating travel-related content is having fun at the same time while creating content and making money from affiliate advertisements. Many people in their daytime employment or currently unhappy with their jobs and wonder how to get out of it and do something at the same time that they love. Monetizing a travel niche bloggers and really not that challenging as most people think. The first thing you have to do in order to get started as an aspiring travel blogger is purchase a domain name that has keywords in the domain related to travel. Once a person has that established, they have to reserve dedicated web hosting to host their WordPress blog on. The reason why a person wants to have their own hosting plan is because starting a travel-related blog on a free blogging platform such as blogger opens you up to having your content owned the moment you publish it to your blog. In other words, If you don't have your blog content backed up using a free blogging platform such as blogger and someone flags your content objectionable even though you wrote nothing wrong, you run the heavy risk of having a Blog deleted and all of your content erased and having to start over again from scratch. When you have your own domain name and dedicated server, you have complete control and functionality over the look, feel and administrative privileges with your blog.
Now you're wondering how travel bloggers make money, right? Travel bloggers mostly make money through affiliate marketing. There's affiliate networks across the internet any blogger or dedicated internet marketer can join free of charge. All you need to do is perform a search and your favorite search engine for more information on high paying affiliate marketing networks and you should see something that would possibly attract you to join that particular affiliate marketing network as a publisher. Travel bloggers earn substantial amount of money simply because they use their camera phone or some type of digital camera to take tons of pictures of locations they vacation at and record video and upload to YouTube.com. So really there's no definitive answer to this how much travel bloggers truly earn. They monetize their blogs through Google AdSense, affiliate marketing networks, and selling sponsored ad space on their blogs.
Selling sponsored ad space basically says in order to have your ad in a certain place on that travel bloggers blog, the person wanting the ad spot must be willing to pay x and x amount of dollars in order to secure that spot. So that's three ways mentioned. One is Google AdSense. Two is joining affiliate marketing networks as an Affiliated publisher. And 3 is selling sponsored ad spots.
Last but not least, you definitely need to create quality content for your blog and at least post once a day in excess of 2,000 words or more 5 days a week. The more content you post to your blog, the more you're able to earn from affiliate marketing, Google AdSense, sponsor ad space increase, and improve your search engine rankings while getting more prospects to purchase ad spots on your blog.
