Starting a travel blog can be daunting but if you have the right tools, time and dedication, you will be glad you started a travel blog.
In this post, I will share the right tools that will help you start your travel blog the right way.
The first thing you need to consider when you want to start a travel blog is the goal you want to achieve from your travel blog. If your goal is to share your passion for travel with the world and earn from your travel blog, you might want to read my post on What is a travel blogger is paid?
Let's dive into the tools you need to get started the right way.
If you want to start your travel blog the right way, you need a great website hosting service. I have used iPage for 2 years and I must say the customer service is absolutely brilliant. They are the best hosting service for new bloggers and they go through every question you have. Click here to sign up for iPage web hosting.
There are many bloggers out there offering courses however many of these courses are incomplete or touches just the basics. I took this training offered by Wealthy Affiliate and I must say it was the best training I have seen. It teaches you everything you need to set up your blog and also how to get into affiliate marketing. You can get a free 7 days of training here.
Email Marketing Service
As you set up your blog, you will need to start capturing the subscribers to your website so that you can create your community. To do this, you need a great Email Marketing service. I use Get Response and as the name suggests, I also get a great number of people opening my emails.
If you want your readers to come back again and again, your sentence structure must follow and this is why you need a tool like Grammarly. Grammarly has a free version as well as a pro version. At the beginning of your blogging career, you will need Grammarly to tie all the loose ends of your content.
If you want to take your blogging to the next level, you will need to do a keyword search in order to show up on search engines like Google and Bing. A keyword search tool is necessary for this purpose and I use a fantastic tool called Jaaxy. In my opinion, it is the best keyword search tool out there that helps you spy on your competitors and ensures you choose the best keyword every time.
Here you have it. This is a simple guide to starting a travel blog the right way. If you have any questions or if you will like to know more, leave your thoughts in the comment section.
