I recently started a blog where I want to share all my traveling experiences. I am planning to travel the world and my goal is to inspire people by sharing what I learned and experienced.
I do not intend to make any money with my blog. You can find the reason for that in this post where I have introduced myself (as you can guess I am kinda new here).
I know this forum is about making money (although I am more then willing to share my experiences about how I made my fortune), but its also about internet marketing and I really wish to promote my blog the right way.
Does anybody here have tips about where I can reach people on the internet that are interested in traveling? Budget is not really a concern for me, but since I don't plan on making any money with my blog, I am not to keen on spending thousands of dollars on Google advertising just to get visitors.
In the past I always used youtube advertising and adwords to promote any services and products that I wished to sell (later I was able to hire a internet marketing team to do all the advertising for me).
Pretty much in any case it would cost me thousands of dollars before I saw a return in investment and it took me quite a few years to build a customer base that was profitable enough to make a fortune. Quote honestly, if I was not so madly passionate about being rich then I don't believe that I would have spend so much time and energy into becoming successful. It took a crazy amount of time, energy and effort to get where I am today.
With that said, as you can understand I do not want to spend that much money, time and energy on building a following for my blog when all I want to do is inspire people.
My question is are there ways to promote a blog such as mine without having to spend a lot of money, time and energy?
