Do you like traveling? Do you want to get out of the 9-5 rat race and start making money online? Well, Jessie may have the answer. I’ve just found out about some training called “Ditch The Daily Grind: How To Create A Travel Blog That Makes Money”. So let’s take a look…
Product Name: Ditch The Daily Grind: How To Create A Travel Blog That Makes Money [Webinar]
Owner: Jessica Festa
Guarantee: Full 60-day money back guarantee
There’s something really refreshing about this because it’s not a dedicated sales website for the product. This training webinar is advertised on a page on an existing website called Jessie on a Journey, which is itself a travel blog. This is reassuring because it makes you feel that Jessie is walking the walk as well as talking the talk.
Who is Jessie?
She was born in New York, has a masters degree in Communications & Rhetoric, and used to be a sightseeing guide. She did try the whole 9-5 “real job” thing, but it just didn’t work out for her because she loved traveling too much.
She set up her website in 2011 so that other people could be inspired to also travel the world.
I was also interested to notice that she is into making ASMR travel videos. For those who don’t know what ASMR is, here is Wikipedia’s description:
“Autonomous sensory meridian response (ASMR) is a euphoric experience characterized by a static-like or tingling sensation on the skin that typically begins on the scalp and moves down the back of the neck and upper spine, precipitating relaxation.”
Here is an example of one of her ASMR travel videos:
How Does Jessie Make Money?
Well, she has adverts on her YouTube videos, so she will get a small amount of money from that. Not a lot, because her videos don’t have a huge number of views yet.
But going back to her website, Jessie has three different adverts in her sidebar:
- RoamRight Travel Insurance
This could bring in a fair bit of money. However, they are quite far down her sidebar. Also, if people are viewing her website on a tablet or phone, the sidebar won’t be displayed. So that limits the effectiveness of those particular adverts.
But I think her main source of income on the website is her affiliate links to Amazon products. There are various articles on her site about important gear to take with you on your travels. These pages are packed FULL of links to Amazon. So if this website does indeed get a lot of visitors, there’s every chance that Jessie gets enough people clicking through to Amazon and buying the products she recommends.
Other ways she appears to make money:
- New York City Sightseeing
- Brand Ambassadorship
- Freelancing/Content Creation
- Social Media Management
- Blog Consulting
- Social Media Campaigns
- Trip/Itinerary Planning
- PR Promotion
- Public Speaking
But I suspect that a large part of her money does actually come from the Amazon affiliate links. Of course, I could be wrong about that, but there are so many affiliate links on her pages that she must be earning quite a lot from them.
Also, let’s not overlook the obvious: another way she is now going to be earning money is by selling her training webinar.
Do I Recommend This Webinar?
Mainly, this training webinar is going to teach you about how to make money from affiliate marketing, but specifically for a travel website. If you like traveling and you want to make money by having your own travel website, I would say it is worth a try. Affiliate marketing definitely works, and travel is certainly a topic that a lot of people are interested in.
The fact that this webinar is shown on her own travel website is very reassuring. It shows that she walks the walk as well as talks the talk. Also, with the full 6-day money-back guarantee, you can’t really lose. If you try it and it turns out that you don’t like it, you can simply get a refund.
