A Six Month Roadmap to Boost Your Travel Blog’s Traffic


The other day I said something strange.

Getting traffic is easy, it’s building an audience that takes time.

People were stunned.

“Getting traffic is NOT easy,” they said. “Unless you’ve already got a huge blog… it takes a TON of work to get traffic!”

But here’s the thing…

Getting traffic is easy… if you have a roadmap.

The Shocking True Story Behind the Trekity Launch

My wife and I have been building online businesses for over five years now.

Things were going well: we were making a pretty good living online and worked on all sorts of interesting projects.

But something was missing

As much as we both love marketing, we weren’t working on what we loved more than anything: travel.

Our book, published way back in 2009!

In fact, we even published a book called Business In A Backpack which explained how to build businesses while traveling the world.

Here we were, working on different businesses while we traveled the world… but… we weren’t talking about travel at all!

Something had to change

You probably know the feeling: you start a travel blog, put your heart and soul into it and all of sudden the reality hits you: this is a lot of work!

It’s no longer just about travel… it’s about SEO, lead generation, monetization… all so you can do what you love for a living.

That was our problem, too.

Fortunately, we had a TON of experience before we launched Trekity.

Darcie’s worked in marketing and business development for years… and I’ve consulted large companies on how to further grow their business (some of that advice has resulted in six and seven figure increases for them). I’ve also worked as a market analyst for Google, then became a full time copywriter.

So we weren’t just “starting from scratch.” But still…

We started with nothing (just like you)

Before we launched Trekity, we had ZERO relationships in the travel market… ZERO content on the blog and ZERO links for that precious SEO traffic.

We had nothing… except a plan.

We gave ourselves 90 days to launch. During that time Darcie and I worked like dogs lining everything to go live at the same time.

And it was all worth it because we got…

8,370 Pageviews Our First Week!

Pretty cool, right?

In fact, I was so excited I published a case study outlining how we did it.

The result?

People LOVED it.

And then I created Travel Blogging 101 - a free 24 part course offering my advice on how to build and grow a successful travel blog.

And again, the response was very positive:

 Really loved your TBA series! - Caz Makepeace, YTravelBlog.com

Which got me thinking.

Since people really enjoyed that content… what if I created a six month ACTION PLAN which outlines everything for you?

Where you could simply follow along… do what we do… and increase your traffic the SMART way?

So that’s what I did.

Introducing: A Six Month Roadmap To Grow Your Travel Blog

This roadmap outlines a simple strategy that will grow your travel blog’s traffic over the next six months. And it’s not just “theory” - this is exactly what I’ve done with Trekity (and here at TBA) so I know it works.

Here’s a video preview of the member section:

Now I must be honest

I am terrible at social media. Terrible. I rarely use Twitter and - with the exception of one group - I never use Facebook. And I only teach what I know. So this course mainly revolves around guest posting, SEO and email marketing. Which - as most big-time bloggers point out - are the most effective ways to grow your blog. You’ll discover:

  • How to write posts that get links, shares and traffic for years to come
  • A simple formula to keep readers coming back for more
  • My step by step process for making your blog as “Google friendly” as possible
  • Copies of the EXACT emails we send when pitching guest posts (these are proven to work!)
  • How to create a “virtuous cycle” that grows your traffic on autopilot
I want you to focus on what really matters: growing your blog’s traffic. No more distractions or wondering what to do next… everything is laid out for you in an easy-to-understand way.

Here’s a month by month breakdown

Month 1:  SEO and content development

Now you can travel wherever, whenever

No more offices. Ever.

My last office job was at Google. Not a bad place to work, mind you, but I still needed to get out and see the world. Since then, I’ve been outside the “cubicle” for over three years now and I’ll never go back… … and while Darcie and I have been on the road we’ve done some amazing things:

  • Hiked the Annapurna Circuit (17 days) in Nepal
  • Meditated for ten days in northern India (while our businesses continue to run on autopilot)
  • Learned Spanish in Antigua, Guatemala
  • Lived on a tropical island in the Caribbean
  • Visited Machu Picchu in Peru
  • Lived in the best part of Buenos Aires

And we’ve done all of this while building online businesses. You can, too - all you need is a roadmap to get you there.

Darcie and I used this roadmap to appear on…

5 Reasons why this course will work for you

It’s built for travel bloggers.

To be honest, there are a lot of great blogging courses out there. But very few focus on travel blogs.

This roadmap is built specifically for travel bloggers.

It’s easy to follow. I explain everything step-by-step. And when we cover a new tool, I RECORD myself using it so you can see EXACTLY what needs to be done.

It’s proven to work. This roadmap highlights my own process for growing a blog from scratch. I’ve taken the “best bits” from our own strategies and compiled them into an easy-to-understand format. Remember, this is the process we used to get 8,370 pageviews our first week.

It’s created by an expert. Not to blow my own horn, but I’ve consulted large companies on how to grow their businesses. These companies make five to six figures in revenue per month… and they rely on me to help grow their business further. Frankly, there isn’t another course for travel bloggers created by someone with my level of experience and results.

It’s guaranteed. More on that in a second… but first…

How much is success worth to you?

As you can see from above, people have been blown away by the FREE material I’ve offered… … so you can imagine how in-depth the paid sections are.

I usually charge a minimum of $2,000 per month for my services (and even more for one-off projects).

But that’s not really a win/win for you, right?

After all, you need advice without spending a ton of money, right?
