I wanted to tell you a bit more about how I ended up creating a travel website. It is thanks to Travelicious, (check there website here). They are looking for freelance travel writers all over the world to create a revolutionary travel website/community. And they pay them!
How to write for them?
The process is super easy. Just apply here. Once your application has been validated, you’ll receive an email explaining you how to create a website. It is way easier than I expected. But yes you’ll have to pay… It cost me around 14€ for the domain name and web hosting.
You’ll also receive access to The Writers Academy learning program. It gathers all the information you need to know about blogging and managing websites.
I think it’s a great investment. Managing a website is a basic skill everyone should learn about.
Once your website is ready, send it to Travelicious for validation. And as soon as they accept it, you’re good to go : start writing – or typing !
I received my money on Paypal (40 AU $ = around 25€) even before I got published, so it’s not a scam.
But there’s always a but…It seems that you can only write one article for them. So don’t get carried away and start counting how much money you can make in a month – as I did. I tried sending emails to Travelicious but I guess too many people did the same and no one answered me yet.
However, I still recommend the Travelicious writing program. Indeed, it covers the costs of creating your website and helps you in the process. And without it, I would never have taken the plunge!
Update, August 2016
After some of you contacted me, I thought it would be good to update this article. It has been published in June 2016. We are now in August and I haven’t been able to write another article for Travelicious… If someone has a solution, please share it! 🙂
Update, October 2016
For those wondering… still no news 😉
