Before you start adding a ton of affiliate links to your blog, ask yourself what kinds of products might interest your audience. Affiliate Window and CJ Affiliate by Conversant: Affiliate networks like Affiliate Window and CJ Affiliate by Conversant are also great choices, because they offer a wide range of advertisers and agencies. The most popular pay-per-click (PPC) advertiser, also known as cost-per-click (CPC), is Google Adsense. Pay-per-view (PPV) advertising, also known as cost-per-mille advertising (CPM), are similar to CPC ads. The most lucrative form of advertising is to offer banner space and text links directly to advertisers. You can also show that you sell banner space by adding a box on your sidebar that says “Advertise Here.” Or consider adding an “Advertise” section to your top navigation. Another smart tactic is to visit other blogs in your industry and find out who advertises on their blogs. As your website attracts more readers, advertisers will also approach you about sponsored posts. If it fits your niche, you can write paid reviews about products that you think are of interest to your readers.
Sponsored Reviews is a popular site to find advertisers, who are willing to pay for a product review post.
Once you’ve built a readership that values what you’re saying, your blog can be a platform to launch products or services. Write an eBook: Launching your own eBook can be one of the most lucrative ways to monetize your blog. Consulting and coaching: If you become an expert in your blog’s field of focus, you can start offering consulting services. If there is one piece of advice that I always give bloggers who are starting out, it’s this: be active on social media from day one.
There are a lot of social media networks nowadays, but today the most important ones are Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Instagram. While following a lot of people can be time consuming, there are some great tools and applications that can help you build followers in a short period of time.
For Facebook, be sure to read my post on how to get more Facebook fans and grow your community.
The short version: if your social media profiles are popular, the advertisers will find you. I started my blog as a hobby, but today it’s providing enough income so that I can travel the world and write about the things I love. I interviewed Sabrina for the Travel Like a Boss Podcast after hearing that she was making $3,000 a month from her blog, and quickly used her tips on my own blog.
This is a great article that gives the reader a play by play of how to earn money blogging.
Once you create massive value through your posts, videos, and podcasts, and you connect with many leaders in your niche, you’re beyond golden.
Great article (like all of yours) told me everything i was looking for on one page!!Thank you so much. It’s the first time I see a blogger who actually SHARES the secrets of blogging and not only encourages to blog. I’m planning to start a traveling blog that focuses on Germany (for now), I wish that in one year from the moment that my blog is on air to thank you again, but not here, in my blog with many followers, including links to this article and your blog. Great article Sabrina not only to grow your blog but easy ways to earn money from people just visiting. As always, as always Sabrina.Your story never failed to push me harder to do better in future.

It’s starting to get weird just how many writers I meet that also have an overwhelming love for travel.
Because I unashamedly try to combine writing and travel as much as possible, I’ve produced an eBook about how to make real money from travel blogging. So if there are any aspiring travel writers out there looking to learn how to make money from travel blogging, here’s a free little extract on how to make money writing for other people’s travel blogs. You don’t particularly need to be out on the road to start writing for travel blogs; if you’ve been to a fair few places and enjoy the whole process of seeking out new cultures and landscapes then that should be enough to start writing for some travel publications on the web.
The fact is, travel companies need well-written and useful travel content for their ever-evolving websites and blogs and it’s not actually all that difficult to get paid writing gigs with many of them.
If you do have your own travel blog then this is the time to link to it to showcase your travel blogging talents. The great thing about everybody needing great content online these days is that not only does the content need to be quality, it also needs to be regular. As the travel blogger, you are the expert here so when you pitch tell them that their blog should be updated twice a week, or once a week at least, and that you’ll kindly take care of all their blogging needs for the fantastic price of ‘$X’ per week. If the travel company is large and uses lots of blog contributors then consider offering a series of posts so that you can rely on the regular income. So I tried to make small money using finance even if I don’t have any formal education. To enjoy the snow and successfully endure the freezing temperatures there are a few things you need to know BEFORE you go on a winter RV adventure. Skirting your RV – If you have an RV without insulated bays, or a trailer, you will need skirting in extreme weather. Cheap Heat Options – We’ve seen 2 options that seem to work well for heating the RV inexpensively in the winter (when you’re staying at an RV park for a month or more you will often have to pay for electricity, so space heaters might end up costing you some extra money each month in electricity bills). Legally you must carry chains to drive many mountain passes during snow storms (especially in California).
All 3 of our RV’s have been diesel, similar rules might apply for gas RV’s so ask the Mfr for advice.  Diesel fuel begins to gel around 20 degrees and can damage your engine.  I have received these tips directly from Fleetwood, Cummins, and Freightliner so this information is solid! Temps between 32-10 degrees Fahrenheit: Turn on block heater 4 hours before starting the engine. Temps below 10 degrees Fahrenheit: Turn on and leave on engine block heater until temps rise above 10.
In the winter you’ll notice condensation accumulating on the windshield, on walls, etc. The solids must be above 55 degrees Fahrenheit in order to compost.  If you have a composting toilet like us make sure the surrounding ambient temperature is at or above 55.
De-Icer, Snow Shovel, Ice Scraper, Jack Pads (to keep the jacks from freezing to the ground), Winter Wiper Fluid, and some warm boots and winter clothes of course! Don’t assume a campground will be open, make sure you contact the resort before you plan a visit. Last but certainly not least there is always the option to winterize your RV before you hit the cold weather. If none of my tips make any sense than I suggest you read the main part of the post below, we’ve stayed in freezing temps for years now, and we absolutely love the solidarity of cold weather camping.
I followed all my own directions as notated in this original post below EXCEPT for skirting.
Tom Conces is a friend we’ve bumped into on the road several times over the past few years. As you may know, this year we have been through snow and ice in 4 states, well 3 and 1 twice.
Sorry, I didn’t expect this to be so long but wanted to add to what you have done from the diesel perspective. Jason Wynn: Famous for my "how-not-to" videos, and typically the man behind the camera, sometimes I’m forced to be here in the “spotlight”. We simply run a small space heater in the RV wet bay while driving, you can get ones that will plug into a 12v outlet. I also had no problem (using furnace) plus leaving stove on low, 1 burner, sometimes 2, on LOW overnight. I came up with that solution when furnace broke, and gas valve was fixed within a few days, but had to make due with the stove alone for a few days.
I have looked into propane wall heaters (and used them in houses) and using in the RV, but for simplicity, the stove effectively is 100% identical. The electric blower motor in your furnace in your RV uses MOST of the electricity usage, in your RV, BY FAR.
By supplementing heat from stove top, you can also further reduce your electric usage, and when running on batteries, that is very important, especially if you dont recharge them often, (or move vehicle often).


Also strongly suggest if mobile & winter camping and only 1 or 2 people to go with truck camper as highly efficient, and a 11.5 ft long camper can be actually quite huge, as that doesnt include the over the cab bed in sq ft, only the floor of the truck bed. The humidity goes up when we run our furnace, its our experience and we have confirmed the same with the furnace mfr. My friend who used to live on a boat told me about Goldenrod heaters to remove condensation and keep mold from growing. Just remember to use advertisements and other revenue streams sparingly at first so that you can find the right balance and keep your readers as your top priority.
The amount you make for each click depends on several things, such as the value of the keyword associated with the ad and the location of the person who clicked on it.
If advertisers aren’t knocking on your door regularly, you can sign up for an ad network like BuySellAds. If you see one that might be a good fit, search for their contact information and send them an offer. These advertisers generally send you a completed post, including a link to a company website, asking you to publish it on your blog. Some frown upon the practice, but I have found sponsored content to be one of my biggest income streams.
Think about the things that you know inside and out; advice that friends and family always ask you for.
There are numerous companies that pay me to tweet or share a post on my Facebook Fan Page, simply because I have thousands of followers that value what I say. It’s a great website that connects influencers with companies that are looking for people to tweet about their products. Over time I’ve learned how to incorporate ads and sponsored content, while still keeping my blog personal, honest, and useful to my audience. Using a combination of Amazon and iTunes affiliate programs, linking to albums, helps bands and artists to sell their work. I’d say that creating massive value and engaging in serious blogger outreach will help you form bonds as much as any other strategy.
I wrote Blogging from Paradise the eBook, about 2 months ago, and since then it’s received an endorsement from a New York Times Best Selling Author, as well as a million dollar earning blogger. A year and a half is quite small in comparison to a lot of blogs that have been running for multiple years. There are a few other ways to monetize I think, but people need to think outside of the box. I have only just started and find promoting on Facebook and Instagram takes a lot of time but the results I have had so far are definitely worth it. Either it can be through various product promotions, pay per click ads, affiliate programs or even by shortening links. Due to the big profits from the travel industry, several international players have entered into the market and you can see some aggressive online marketing campaigns going on.
In fact, Hotels Combined is a unique search engine that travelers can take the advantage of finding hotel availability and rates, it also compares prices and offers from multiple hotels. Addition, you also get paid 70% of the ad revenue every time an user clicks an ad on their site.Cool eh! Newbies can start by making their own travel related blogs and seo them properly to get some traffic and then integrate the affiliate program.
I’ve written some of my best and highest paid travel blog posts while sitting at home in my pajamas dunking biscuits into coffee.
It’s just a matter of researching which companies you would like to work for and then pitching a few ideas to them via email (explaining why you’re the best person for the job of course). Not only will you get paid for your post, most companies will also include a link from their website back to yours, which is a great way to get additional traffic to your site. This type of work suits the intrepid vagabond lifestyle perfectly if you’re that way inclined – a blog post on the best ways to pack for an African safari here, a narrative piece on getting off the beaten track in Mongolia there. What are your thoughts on how to make money writing your own travel blog and that of other travel companies? When I first started blogging, I would do travel posts, but that approach didn’t really mesh with my author blog.
So please learn from our mistakes and heed our warnings, they truly come from the heart in hopes to make your Winter RV adventures run much more smoothly. Being slightly crazy we know there are tons of adventures waiting in the snow filled mountains. The majority of RV’s are not made for extreme cold so chances are if you plan to be in consistent freezing temps you should look into investing in this. We’ve used it in 20 degree temps and we can put it in the windshield, turn it on and it keeps the RV warm all the way in the bedroom!
We purchased a dual climate heated pad (not a heated blanket) because one of us is always colder than the other, it works like a champ. During the winter a vent cover is a must as it adds an extra barrier against condensation, and when there’s a pile of snow on the roof you can still open the vents while cooking (or if you need to let some condensation escape). Sure you can run your generator and use propane to heat the interior, but you’re gonna spend $20+ per day anyway so you might as well find a nice RV park and plug in.
I cannot guarantee that your RV won’t freeze, or that your vacation will go perfectly.
Arizona Does freeze, it may be rare in the valley but it does happen (and it happens often in the higher elevations). An overnight freeze will not burst your pipes, however multiple freezes without thawing can. Also if you want to learn a little more our friend Tom Conces left a very detailed comment in the comments section that you absolutely must read.
Smokey: a makeshift chimney from aluminum clothes dryer vent attached to the diesel burner exhaust and raised above the coach so the smell stays on the outside.
Keep the fresh water and pipes from freezing: In my humble opinion your tips and tricks are spot on. Skirting as you pointed out is an absolute must: I love the snow piled up, cost effective and highly efficient.
Insulation: We also use the reflective insulation for the front and rear over the engine vents and inside windshield.
This is all based on our experience over the past few years, read our disclaimer for more info.
When you see my face you’re probably reading something more technical than adventurous, but either way I do my best to tell it like it is and infuse my opinions into the commentary…after all this is a blog and not MSN.
I had 4 of the biggest deep cycle batteries walmart makes in my RV, each 29 size and each 125 amp hours, so 500 amp hours.
If you feel more confortable buying a wall heater, and plumbing the propane line and mounting it somewhere, fine too, but stovetop is a LOT easier, cheaper, requires no installation or storage of the heater appliance and same benefit. Yes, propane combustion does give off significant water vapor, however with a vented furnace (which most RVs have) all of the combustion materials including water vapor should be vented directly out by the furnace and never goes inside the coach: zero added moisture. You'll need to contact the mfr, and NOT a salesperson, to get the specific temperature ratings. Of course it varies based on the mfr, but no matter what if you plan to hit freezing temps you'll want to have some of the items we've mentioned on board. I'm a minivan camper and have not tried them yet, but would consider them if I did winter camping. If you focus on interesting subject matter, building an engaged community, and honest, passionate writing, you’ll build the trust and following you need. After one year, I was making enough money from blogging to give up all my freelance jobs and travel the world. It’s a performance-based marketing strategy, where a business rewards an affiliate—like your website—for each visitor that you bring them.
Sign up for their partner program, search products that you like or use, and mention them on your blog.
You get paid for your reach; the more popular your blog and the higher your PageRank is, the more money you’ll be offered for a sponsored post. If you do decide to go this route, you should always place a clear disclaimer on the sponsored post, so your readers understand that it is paid content.
Even more important is to write honest reviews; you never want to comprise the trust of your readers for a few extra dollars. It pays to build followers and fans, because the more people that follow you, the more influential you become. It’s a tool that will help you to follow hundreds of people and unfollow those who do not follow you back. As long as you love what you do and write high quality content, additional income will follow. She’s a talented photographer and web designer, whose blog posts and photos keep visitors coming back day in and day out. Make sure to check out the other post I’ve written, it explains how to reach more people on Facebook. Blogger outreach and having a neat story to tell helped me create this income stream, but getting that eBook published was the first step to set it all up.


Personally I’m not a fan of the whole eBook market, but I guess if its what you believe your readers will use, then why not? Out of this affiliate programs can really pull some big money if you can bring targeted traffic to your product page.
There are plenty of options for you to promote it in your blog, they have standard and advanced implementation methods including general and deep text links, static and animated banners, interactive search boxes, private branding (white label), XML data feeds, CSV data feeds and a XML search API.
In some cases if temperatures drop below 0 degrees you will need to run a space heater under your coach (inside your skirting) to keep it warm. If you’re plugged into shore power why waste your money running the propane furnace inside your RV? There are special water hoses you can plug in to keep warm, you can also make a heated water hose using Pipe Heating Cable (Heat Tape) and Insulating Foam Pipe Covers. Best part is the preheat function warms the bed quickly then continues with your original setting. If you can’t find winterized diesel you need to purchase an additive that will keep your diesel from freezing (you can find this at auto part stores and truck stops). We installed a new MaxxFan on the Fleetwood and it combines the vent cover into the fan, it seemed to hold up pretty well to the elements however we didn’t have a more than a few inches of snow at a time. Surprisingly a ton of State Parks close as soon as snow hits the ground, so do your research! If you’re new to winter RVing make sure you read the comments, there are so many great tips from our friends! This simple formula worked for us for several nights in a row of sub-freezing nightly temperatures. After surviving months in the Colorado Rockies without freezing, imagine our surprise when we froze solid in AZ! Granted they will help thaw the tanks, but when the temp drops near zero don’t expect those little heating pads to do much of anything. If you’re not skirted then any warmth that is generated under your RV will simply blow away.
I told him you’re crazy, then I said read our post on How to Prepare an RV for a Freezing Winter Adventure.
Similar to what happens when you turn your key and the engine manifold pre-heats fuel for your engine. I put snaps on the insulation so we can snap it to the existing snaps on the coach with keeps it from blowing away. I would NEVER put water in black tank in winter, only "flush" with RV antifreeze, poured out of the bottle, (the toilet kind, not the automotive engine kind fyi).
We have just started on our cold weather excursion (currently in northwestern Montana) and wanted to share what we did for sealing our windows.
You can also create a resource page on your website, where you list all the products you use. In my case, I often make videos for my readers, so I recommend the cameras that I use with a short description as to why I love them. Make sure your articles use the right keywords, because Google Adsense will serve ads based on your content.
So if your website has 100,000 page views per month, you would earn between $100-200 per month. But if you’re just getting started, I suggest you implement both on your blog and find out what works best.
Any links you include in these posts should also use the nofollow attribute, which is standard practice when linking to paid content. Thanks to the shares of huge pages of Facebook many of my posts went viral and I gained a lot of new readers. But now that I know more about blogging, I am once again feeling the itch to start a blog devoted just to travel. For sub-freezing temperatures we typically run 2 space heaters inside: 1 near the front, and one near the bedroom.
It pulls about 5 amps and keeps all my pipes warm (exterior temp 20 degrees, inside bay 50 degrees).
It’s easy to do, inexpensive, and maybe it’ll help keep the pipes a little warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer?
Before you depart your destination you should plug in the heating element found in your diesel engine (most diesel engines have a heated core that you can plug into a wall to keep them from getting too cold) to warm up your engine at least 4 hours before taking off. Of course this means when nature calls you have to high tail it through the freezing weather to use the Jon, but at least you don’t have to worry about your pipes freezing!
Skirting – Anytime the temperatures will be sub 30 for more than a half day adding a skirt is the BEST way to keep your RV from freezing.
Also when the sun comes out the bottom of your RV (where your tanks are likely located) is still in shade.
Cold air leaks in under the slides, permeates through the walls, and seeps through the windows.
Needless to say Tom learned a few things while freezing his tail off in the Midwest during Winter, so I thought he should share his experiences (from the horse’s mouth as the saying goes). I have ad a honda 1000 generator, but I found i never needed to use it, and the inconvenience of dragging it out, gassing it up, chaining it up, and then packing up and storing, was not worth it. For winter camping, you can not get better than a truck camper if just 1 or 2 people for ease of use and efficiency heating.
Hit up your petsmart on fridays or wednsdays when they get a fish shipment in and ask the manager if you can have them they just throw them away. Can a "cold weather package or winter package" be added after an RV is already built and what would that include? Alternatively, you can offer to write an article for the advertiser to make it a better fit for your audience—but it’s best practice to disclose when an advertiser is paying you to write something. I’d also make sure that your Twitter profile pictures look interesting to the average visitor. The heat is nice on our backs, then as the warmth rises its captured between the sheets and creates a nice oven effect.
If you decide to go this route make sure you stay in the site located closest to shower and bathroom facilities, you’ll thank me later.
If you plan to stay in freezing weather for an extended period of time locate those drafty areas and throw a blanket over them. Cold diesel doesn’t completely burn and the exhaust can be very smokey and very smelly. I would always seek other places to use restrooms whenever possible, but would use mine in a pinch. I DID however have zero guage wire from batteries to alternator in truck to recharge them that worked great. Normally, they are for use in a residential home, but we found them to work equally well in our 5er.
I've noticed some RV's that have a sticker that says winter package on it and we're wondering what that means.
Watch the two videos below on How To Prepare the Outside of Your RV for Winter, and then How to Prepare the Inside of Your RV for Winter…then read the post to get additional tips and tricks, and any updates about How to RV in the Winter.
For our Windy it’s amazing how much cold air comes in through the entry door area, so I cover the stairwell with a piece of board and my rug at night. The narrow widths can be used to skirt the sides and they can be held in place by the basement doors.
I would say infrared is better at throwing heat further distance, but they are identical as far as CO and humidity goes, because they are not vented and burning the same amount of propane for same BTUs output.
Using double sided tape around the frames of the windows, they make a tight, clear seal and both keeps the air leaks from coming in and forms an air pocket between the glass and plastic film that acts as an insulator. I find putting 1 gallon antifreeze in when empty is a good start and then add about 12 oz each time #2. Id reccomend the 29DC - MAXX not the regular 29DC, as maxx has 1 year warranty (used to be 2), and slightly more amp hours and better built. Also service on a pickup truck is a lot less at a local mechanic vs RV dealer or Diesel mechanic shop. SInce air is a poor conductor of heat, it makes a huge difference in keeping our RV warmer in the winter while still allowing full light to enter. In our case that prevented us from putting water into the tank and we ended up with a small crack in the tank.
Granted, we are from Florida, so I'm not sure who's going to take our advice, but we both did grow up in Colorado and Pennsylvania, respectively! Yes a 250 or 2500 series truck can handle a 11.5 ft camper, but if you can afford a F350 or 3500 truck, the extra 2 wheels in the back, DO add a lot of stability and allow much easier & safer & faster driving, think no body roll around corners and winding highways at speed.
