When thinking of monetizing a travel blog, most people think of Amazon affiliates, advertising, and other “passive income” strategies. But these aren’t the most efficient if you’re trying to build up revenue early on from a travel blog. Those strategies are fine, but they take way more time, knowledge, and skill than most people have or are willing to learn.

Sorry, but true.

There is a more realistic and efficient way to monetize a travel blog, which is to actually have something of value to sell from the very beginning (service or product).

In today’s 10 minute podcast with Bryanna we talk about how she was able to craft a full-time income around her virtual assistant services while continuously building an influential travel blog (and how these two things work together).
