Do You Want to be the Next BootsnAll Travel Writer?
Way back in February, we announced the launch of the BootsnAll Travel Writer Platform, a partnership with travel writers who are passionate and excited about sharing their expertise. After sifting through a few hundred applications from talented and well-qualified writers, we finally selected our fabulous first five: JoAnna Haugen for WhyGo Las Vegas, Christine Cantera for WhyGo France, Nellie Huang for WhyGo Spain, Brooke Schoenman for WhyGo Australia and Amiee Maxwell for Travel Gear Blog.
Since May, they’ve been the embodiment of the BootsnAll spirit – providing useful and inspiring information and advice to travelers around the world. And now, we’re looking for more passionate travel experts to join them.
This time, we’re narrowing the field of destinations and themes for which we are looking for writers. So if you have expertise and passion for London, Ireland, New Zealand, Thailand, Brazil, Canada, Portugal, Vietnam, Mexico, Hawaii, business travel or adventure travel, we want to hear from you.
So, what does a BootsnAll Travel Writer do? Well, obviously, writing is a big part of the job. Each writer will be responsible for a set amount of blog posts per month, offering information on things to do and see in their destination, tips on scoring cheap flights and advice on the best hotels and hostels for travelers. But it doesn’t end there. Every BootsnAll Travel Writer needs to be an accessible expert who is available to answer questions and help travelers plan a trip to that destination.
The ideal candidate is not only an excellent writer who is passionate and knowledgeable about the destination and who is already familiar with the technical aspects of blogging, he or she is also an established member of the travel community, actively participating in social media.
There is work involved here, and we’re looking for people who will make a commitment to us to make these sites successful. BootsnAll will also be making an investment of both time and money in the sites themselves and in the writers with whom we’ll be working. What kind of investment, you ask? It will differ somewhat depending on the site, but the base monthly pay will be in the $500 range ($10-$25 per post, plus up to $200 per month for social media efforts) with a profit sharing system that will give the writer 30-40% of the site’s profits.
We think the program is unique in the travel world, and we’re so excited to expand it with another round of five writers. If you think you’ve got what it takes to join the team, we want to hear from you.
