Work With Me

Indie Traveller is aimed at travellers looking for exciting experiences around the world on a regular person’s budget. My blog began (as many do) with a focus on backpacking and round-the-world travel, though this has gradually widened to include ecotourism, independent travel, adventure travel, and cultural travel.

In addition to covering destinations around the world I also regularly review travel gear and travel services here and on my growing YouTube channel.

You’ll find more info about my blog’s reach further down the page. I also have a Media Kit that I can send on request.

 


 

 

 

A quick guide to getting in touch

I get a lot of e-mail every day, so here are some pointers to help both of us out:

You want a quote or article contribution

Great, I love to do these! I’m happy to respond to media requests—I’ve been previously featured with quotes on Huffington Post and Bloomberg News, among others. I’m also happy to contribute to content marketing pieces (with something really nice) in exchange for a backlink to my site. In return I typically share or link to these articles. Feel free to get in touch.

You want me to review your travel gear

I regularly review items like backpacks and portable electronics here and on my YouTube channel. If you have a sample of a cool travel product for me to review, then I’d love to know!

You want to promote a destination

Cool! I occasionally work with tourism boards and other parties to inform my readers of interesting places to travel.

I’m aware that destination marketers often place incredible importance on social media, but I don’t buy fake followers or engagement. Please keep this in mind when checking certain metrics.

I like to cover places and experiences in ways that generate value and exposure for a long time to come.

Some previous partners:

You have a new travel planning app or social platform

Sorry, I can’t help you.

I get e-mails about startups in this space every week, with vague proposals about “working together” (translation: filling the platform with content for free). There’s a ton of these apps and sites being launched constantly and there’s usually little incentive for me to get involved, especially at the beta stage.

(If this sounds harsh then you’ve not seen my inbox… sorry again for being this blunt.)

You want to send me 5 automated reminders

Go away. This practice needs to stop. You’re not respectful to my inbox. One friendly follow-up is more than enough. Again, sorry, but acquisition emails have just gotten beyond spammy in the last few years.

You want to send me an infographic

I have a gmail filter set to delete any infographics. I know zero travel blogs that post infographics.

You see a genuine way for us to work together

Then I’d love to hear from you! And if your communication is to the point and respectful I will think very highly of you and your company. Thank you. 🙌 👊
