What TBS members are saying…

Alex Hammett“I have loved being part of the group for the past few years, and although I discovered I am not the best travel blogger (great traveller, not so much the blogger), it was actually this group that got me started in setting up my own business and aspiring for a lifestyle that can enable more travel.”

— Alex Hammett, Lemon and Lime Business Solutions, August 2017

“As both bloggers and travel industry professionals who hires bloggers, Travel Blog Success is an invaluable resource.

Via the TBS Opportunity Board, we have yielded three valuable staff members and at least a dozen suitable influencers for a variety social media marketing campaigns.

It is one of our first stops for recruiting, as we know that TBS members are largely knowledgable and true to their craft.”

Feedback on Bloggers, Brands, and Tourism Boards: A Guide to Successful Partnerships

Feedback on Blogger to Bylines: A Guide to Freelance Writing

“This course has changed my life. The only thing I knew about freelance writing before I joined was that I wanted to do it. I literally had to ask Britany what a ‘pitch’ was. I started making money almost immediately after signing up and I’m only getting busier and busier. Businesses are SEEKING ME OUT now instead of the other way around.

I can’t thank Britany enough for everything she has done and continues to do for us every single day. Because of Britany and this course I am well on my way to finally quitting my crappy 9-5 and becoming location independent (the dream!). Joining Blogger to Bylines was hands down the best decision I have made in years!”

— Ashley Smith, My Wanderlusty Life

“Everything is in great detail and explained in layman’s terms that anyone could understand whether you have a previous knowledge of filmmaking or not. It was also a great overview for me and brought me back to my days at film school.”
