About this event

This August join us for an insightful talk all about cross-pollinating blogging and freelance writing with longtime blogger and veteran travel & finance writer Nora Dunn.

With over 10+ years as a successful writer, working with editors, and creating a sustainable living as a freelance writer, Nora (@hobonora) will share her best tactics and take you step-by-step in this talk "How to Get Lucrative Freelance Writing Gigs and Simultaneously Put Your Blog on the Map".

This session is for Beginner to Intermediate level bloggers and freelance writers who want to take their craft and business to the next level. Nora will share specific strategies for how to get the most leverage out of your travels or press trips and have editors banging on your door to write for them.

While Nora will touch on many elements of being a successful freelance writer, it’s worth noting that this is NOT a comprehensive freelance writing tutorial - which is a workshop unto itself! Instead, Nora will show you how the combination of blogging + freelance writing can be instrumental for your career, branding, and income, with effective strategies to make the most of it.

Nora will be a guest speaker at TBEX 2019 North America. In this talk, she gives us a special sneak peek into her presentation before the conference!

What You Will Learn:

- How to make your blog SEO-tastic
- Strategies for selecting and developing separate niches to cross-pollinate so you're not "just another travel writer"
- What to put on your blog to make editors want to work with you
- How to negotiate a freelance writing gig that pays well, provides backlinks and even affiliate income
- How to use social media to drive traffic to your freelance gig AND your blog

This is a FREE event. Massive thank you to @hobonora for sharing her time, knowledge, and professional expertise for our community, as well as our host venue @flightcentreCA.

To show our appreciation please help share the love.
