Wouldn’t it be amazing to get paid for travelling around the world? This is the reality for many ‘Travel Bloggers’ and ‘Youtube Vloggers’. There are many different ways that you can make money as a travel blogger/ vlogger on Social Media and Youtube. If you have plenty of views on your Youtube videos, you are already on the right path to becoming a vlogger. Youtube works by getting paid from brands who want to advertise their companies on people’s videos, and then Youtube will pay the vloggers who are in a paid partnership with them… but you do have to maintain plenty of views to start making a lot of money. If your passion is travelling – then this could be the dream job for you.
If you are a travel blogger, there are many companies that can pay you to write articles, for example, a travel company could be seeking a freelance content writer to write about their travel experiences. If you have a large Social Media following; being a Social Media Travel Influencer could be your ideal role; companies will regularly collaborate with popular Social Media personalities to advertise their brand for them on their Social Media platforms, and travel companies will even gift free holidays to Social Media Influencers for them to talk and post about their holiday experience.
There are many points to consider if you want to become a travel blogger/ vlogger, and one of those points is where to start? If you are someone who is more outgoing and confident behind the camera, then vlogging could be more your thing – the idea is to create engaging and creative content that will keep viewers coming back for more. If you are nervous behind the camera and tend to create dull and uninteresting videos, you will only get nasty comments and negative attention. If you are someone who is quieter and is better at writing engaging articles, perhaps being a blogger will be more your scene.
Another point to think about is whether you have the correct equipment? If you want to become a blogger/ vlogger you will need to make sure your content is the best quality that it can be, as taking videos and photos on your phone will not be good enough. You will need to invest in an SLR camera, or a high-quality Video Camera if you want to become a successful vlogger. Make sure you have the correct laptop for what you want to do, as you will need the best video or photo editing software. If you intend on becoming a Social Media influencer, you will need to access all of your Social Media apps on the go, so a top-notch smartphone is vital. Next, you need to plan where you want to visit; countries such as Turkey make for amazing and cheap holiday destinations, so this could be a good starting point.

Once you have begun planning your travel opportunities, you will need to think about how you are going to edit your videos and photographs; make sure to keep to a theme, and stay true to your branding. When visiting different countries, you need to keep in mind their cultures; research what you can and can’t bring along with you and think about how you behave in that country – you won’t be off to a great start if you end up getting in trouble.
