Hi,

i arrived here mostly by surprise. I was actually looking on Internet to start a travel blog. I wanted to do this for years, but now i think i'm finally ready to do it.

My favorite thing for sure is travelling and i would like to blog about it, to share experiences, tips and advice on travel, reviews of accessories for travelling (tripod, camera, gears, bag pack...).

I'm really motivated to learn about all of this and get started. I'm reading a lot to see the big picture of this. I already have lots of idea to add to my blog.

Also i'm french so i hope it won't be a problem to get some help.

Here's my travel blog : http://lesdeuxpiedsdehors.com

Hi and welcome to WA, Thanks for following me back.

Thanks ;-)
For example, if i want to do affiliate marketing with Amazon, do i need to have some contents already? I mean the difficult part is don't have anything for now, except my "about me" page!
So i will have to write some contents first with keeping in mind affiliate link, as you said. But my free account will be finished in 4 days and, at this time, i won't have much of contents. Maybe i need to take some times to write some contents first and then i'll go after here, and go into premium. Does that sound dumb?

I hope things are going well. I know you are getting rolling within the training and there is ONE thing that always tends to confuse people and that is "what is my niche?".

I know, same thing happened to me when I started.

I just wanted to reach out and let you know that I am here if you ever want to run any niche "ideas" by me or you have any questions about finding your niche.

Get back to me when you get the chance! :)

Thanks Kyle to stop by. :-)

Actually, as you said i'm rolling with the training and learning lot of stuffs.

About my niche, i asked already on WA and already got an answer. I had actually the idea before coming here to write about traveling on a budget and photography when you travel. I'm not sure yet i can't be only a niche or if i can put them together though.

What aspect of the travel niche do you want to help people with? There are literally 1,000's of niches within these categories and you will want to narrow it down. Where specifically? What type of travel? What aspect of travel?

Your niche ideas are definitely viable directions for your niche. You need to choose one when starting out, what are you most passionate about?

When deciding on a niche and trying to narrow down to a more specific niche, I recommend you ask yourself the following question:

I want to help people that ______________.

Fill in the blank and you are going to be much closer to a specific audience. After you do this and if you want to run any further ideas by me, let me know and I will give you a hand. :)

Hi Kyle,
Thanks for all the information and the help about founding my niche. Even if i do understand what is it, I actually don't understand how targeting a more specific niche of travelers could help your for monetizing a blog for exemple ?
Usually when you see a travel blog, it always look like this with this menu (and I thought more or less doing the same)
- destination menu, to tell stories about where they went. It will include (now that I know what it is) affiliate links to hostel, restaurant, company etc.),
- tips menu : including accessories review, tips about what to bring over there, how to do it, where to buy etc.
- philosophy menu : usually just talking about why is good to travel, how you can do it, why you can change your life etc.

Someone from WA recommend this famous website : nomadicmatt
Or something like this : heynadine

So if I was thinking of your sentence, that would be, I want to help people that "don't know anything about traveling yet and looking for some tips to help them take the forest step". Or it also can be people that "are looking for some inspiration to start traveling (on a budget if you don't have a lot of money)".

It will include mostly my type of travelling, so travelling on a budget, everywhere in the world. When I was telling you that I don't understand here when you need to be more specific, it was because the same persons (I'm actually one of them, as I'v travelled for a long time) looking for tips to how to travel, where to travel, what to bring over there, tips of visa, bag pack, credit card, what to read when you're traveling etc. It will be for me the same people.

I'll explain. If you want to qui your job and start travelling worldwide, or if you want to do a 3 weeks vacation somewhere on a budget, or if you want tips about how to choose your back pack, this same person will be interested to have all of this in one website.

This will not include person travelling with lot of money because they won't come here looking for answers usually.

I'd really love your opinion, am i off tracks here or does it make sense?

Yeah, don't look at a broad travel blog, they often times have many employees (100's) if they are broad.

You could go much more targeted, you could target something like "travelling to Venice". Choosing a travel back-pack and backpack reviews could be a niche. Backpacking in Australia could be a niche. Or you could target something like "cruises in the bahamas" and be very successful, it is the experts these days that gain the most trust within their perspective niches are those that succeed at the highest rate.

Thanks Kyle for the answers.

i'm not thinking of a broad travel blog as you said, but a travel blog for back-packers around the world. That's my ultimate goal, but i understand what you're thinking.
In fact i thought about all this and i was thinking of targetting niche into categories of my website?
Ex : i will have a category "review" where i will test bag-pack, camera, gears etc. -> 1 niche
i will have an other category "tips for travelling on a budget" -> an other niche here.

So you see where i want to go?
But i could start with a small niche of "travelling on a budget in French Polynesia" for ex and then expand to some others.
Reply
Kyle Premium
Yeah, that is most definitely the direction you could head with your niche. If this is something that you are passionate about, definitely go for it Sylvain!
Reply
Sylvain34 Premium
Which direction,
- traveling on a budget in French Polynesia niche? For starters and then expend?
- or targeting few niches into categories of the website?

Thbaks for your help anyway!
Reply
Kyle Premium
Sure, that could be a direction you head. You can always expand on this in the future or be involved in many different niches, but that can definitely be a BIG niche as you dig into it.
Reply
Sylvain34 Premium
You're right, i'm going to start with something at least. And then i will expend of course, but yeah it's going to be a big niche and it's going to me difficult as there is already have some many blogs talking about travelling on a budget.

Anyway, i need to start somewhere right? ;-)

And i will try to follow as you said :

Step 1: Choose your niche
Step 2: Build your website/content
Step 3: Get rankings in search engines (leads to traffic)
Step 4: Monetize your traffic (the make money part, through affiliate programs, etc!)

*And they wonder why I love WA so much* LOL !

Hi Chris,

Even if it was an automatic presentation, I’m actually glad I came here. For now, I really don’t know where to start first because I’m new at this.
To tell you about me quickly, I have traveled a lot these past few years but I want to it more often. I still have a great job but, at term, I’ll like to live from my travel blogging.
For now, I’m a little septic about everything I read, I mean you need to be because there is a lot of garbage on Internet and mostly, people will always want money of something. It’s the same for you actually trying to convince me to achieve my membership in WA and it’s also the same for me, as I want to live about this, so I understand perfectly everything.
Right now, I will start to look for answers, as I have so many, so I won’t bother you to actually ask a few of them.
I don’t know much about monetizing a blog even if I have an actual travel blog for friends and family mostly. So, writing won’t be a problem with me but it might be in English though as I’m French and my English fluent. I also know, I will have more chance to have a good traffic on my blog if I write in English for sure. So, I’m gonna ask a question anyway, no two ;-) :
- Will it be better to start a blog in your native language (French) and then ask for a translation to someone or a website and start doing a blog in French/English?
- Will it be possible for me to start on a free wordpress blog and then move the contend to my official blog (domain name etc.)? What will you recommend?
Anyways, I’m not even sure, you’re going to answer me! So I will stop here and do some research
