You travel. You post. You tweet. You blog.
What would you say if you could get trips for almost nothing?
Shopping in Shanghai… You could be here for
nothing if you sign up for the SeriouslyTravel
Sponsored Travel course now.
Be honest. The only thing stopping you traveling more is the cost, right? What if you could book your next holiday today, knowing that it’s all paid for by someone else? What if it wasn’t just your next trip—but every trip you take for the rest of your life?
Travel more often, further, and for longer
—whenever and wherever you want—
without worrying about the cost.
Introducing the SeriouslyTravel Sponsored Travel course. A
comprehensive ten-part program that shows you precisely how to turn the travel writing and photography you do already into free or low-cost trips—and it’s unconditionally guaranteed.
IMPORTANT: PLEASE READ AND UNDERSTAND
THIS BEFORE YOU GO ANY FURTHER
First, this course is absolutely NOTHING to do with courier work: as always you should only EVER carry your own
stuff. Second, this isn’t an arduous travel writing course—although there are valuable tips included. Rather, in ten
parts, the SeriouslyTravel Sponsored Travel Course demonstrates step-by-step exactly how you can turn your
travel posts and blogging into expenses-paid trips, time and time again.
What is ‘Sponsored Travel’?
Sponsored travel is where a travel services or holiday provider gives away accommodation, upgrades, food and drink, facilities,
activities, entertainment and tours (for example) in exchange for positive posts about your experiences. You do not need a massive
following because quality of your audience is much more important than quantity of random people. If the travel companies wanted
that, they’d spend more on advertising and promotion.
Sponsored travel is:
It’s an exchange of services: the travel companies want to give you accommodation, upgrades, food and drink,
facilities, activities, entertainment and tours, in exchange for you posting, tweeting, and blogging about them favorably.
What’s more, you’re doing it already: so why not get something out of it? The SeriouslyTravel Sponsored Travel Course shows you
how, in manageable, actionable, enjoyable steps, all at a pace to suit you.
I highly recommend the
SeriouslyTravel Sponsored Travel
course to anyone who wants to learn
how to score FREE travel
accommodation, meals, and tours!

Shhhhh… This is our secret…
Why taking this course is worth so much more
than just saving money on travel
Consider this: when you book your first and
subsequent sponsored travel trips, the management
of the travel company will, of course, know about it.
They’ll know about you, what you’re doing there, and
whoever you’re taking along. What’s more, they’ll
make sure the staff know who you are too. See, if the
management and staff know who you are and what
you’re doing, they’re going to treat you like nothing
short of royalty. Get it?
It has been known for hotels to assign specific
staff—’handlers’—to give you that extra bit of love
and attention. The trick is to just be your normal polite
and courteous self as if you’re not doing anything
special (and we cover that in the course in Module 8 –
but you heard it here first).

Why we can GUARANTEE this course IS for you.
FACT: Travel companies are happy to give people like you free accommodation, upgrades, tours, and more, in exchange for your posts, tweets and blogs.
WHY: They know full well that it’s much cheaper and far more effective to give trips away than it is to spend money on expensive advertising. Plus, you posting positively about travel experiences is the next best thing to word of mouth.
FACT: One thing travel companies aren’t short of is space. They can afford to give it away because it’s there already whether or not it’s not booked.
WHY: Think about it: having housekeeping clean a room is a small price to pay for getting tons of personal positive publicity. The room (or suite or villa with a pool, come to that) is sitting there unsold so they might as well make use of it.
FACT: You don’t need a huge following on social to make what we’ll show you work.
WHY: The companies are interested in quality not quantity. It’s an immutable law of marketing that finding similar people to you is costly and very difficult. By posting and blogging—just to your friends—you’ve already done the hard work for them, see? The people you’re writing to are typically your friends because they at least have some interests in common with you. To the travel companies, that’s pure gold bullion.
You, YES YOU! You are already good at traveling and posting. You’ve got the likes, loves, laughs and comments to prove it.
We really can’t stress this enough: you’re already doing it. You already post, tweet and blog about your adventures. You’re funny and interesting and your friends love you for it. They tell you so! If they didn’t enjoy what you post, they wouldn’t say so. Nobody ever writes back: “Oh, man! That was soooooo boring.” Not to you they don’t.
This course shows you how to put the pieces together to turn your musings, descriptions and opinions into more travel. Do the course so you can do more of the same, at little or no cost to you. You keep your friends and fans happy. The travel company gets low-cost publicity. And you get to do what you love most: traveling and telling.

Sign up for the Seriously Travel Sponsored Travel course now.
Over the past ten years, I’ve been writing about and photographing all the places I’ve visited, but just to my Facebook friends and the people that bother to read my blog. Then I heard about SeriouslyTravel. Just the letter templates that show you how to ask and what to ask for are certainly worth the cost of the course on their own. I’d be posting about places anyway. Now I get an extra special welcome wherever I go. Not on one single occasion have I paid for accommodation this year and almost of all of my food, drink and entertainment has been totally free. FREE massage every day at my hotel in Bangkok? Well, it’d be rude not to…
