Email from my readership
Checking my emails the other week and one with the subject line "We love your work" caught my attention enough to not include it in the delete list.
On opening it I found it to be a genuine enquiry. The last line of the third paragraph had me thinking... "Really". Quote...
" Before covid-19 hit us last year, Colombia was one of the fastest-growing destinations for international tourism, and 2020 was going to be the biggest to date. As we are now starting to receive inquiries for the 2nd half of this year, we have absolutely no doubt that the continued interest in this beautiful country will continue. For this reason, i am reaching out to make contact with the best blogs in the world to offer this alliance ".
The best blogs in the world !.. a bit of flattery goes a long way I guess... but I have only done one travel article ( more as an exercise), but I thought it to be below par, so I have it well hidden in my main blog site. So much so I have trouble finding it sometimes.
The last paragraph had some extra sweet bait to get a response from me.
"As well as this we are also planning a Press-trip into the Colombian Coffee Zone for early 2021. This is something that is obviously invitation-only and is also only available to our affiliate partners".
Hmm, a good paragraph to get a positive response. We call it a CTA. (Call to Action).
Never the less he wanted to have a chat and discuss the possibility of forming an affiliate alliance with his company, Which we settled yesterday when he returned a copy of the signed contracts back to me.
I have now registered a new domain and will begin work on it this week. He has also provided me pre written articles (most only about 150 words), from which I can use to build on.
Sometimes in blogging the unexpected can happen. I am looking forward to setting up a new blog.
All the best with your blogging.
