Travel Advertising and Marketing – Why Advertise on The Travel Tart?
Interested in Advertising on this website? Please read the below first very, very carefully, and then Contact Me.
If you address me as ‘hey’, ‘dear webmaster’, or something that doesn’t include my first name (here’s a hint that makes it obvious as dog’s testicles – my name is somewhere on this page!), then I will return the favour with a *FREE* delete of your email and I’ll assume that you can’t read!
Secondly, don’t submit something offering ‘free content’ that includes a dodgey link back to shady website just because you want some SEO link juice. This annoys the living crap out of me and I’ll delete these emails as well!
I do feature funny guest posts and photos from other bloggers no worries at all and I’m happy to link to you, but if you want me to link to a business, then I treat this as advertising, and it better be good!
I receive heaps of crap emails about advertising all the time and most of them end up in the bin.
If you are interested in advertising/sponsored posts and don’t want to waste my time or your time, you MUST include the following in your email:
1) Who the advertising is for,
2) How long the advertising is for, and finally
3) How much (you know what your budget is – just be upfront about it!).
I’m not going to play email ping pong just so you can tell me you’re only going to offer double figures! Also, all sponsored links will be “nofollow’ because Google says so.
Anyway, this website is all about having a bit a fun – which is what travel is all about and attracts people with a sense of adventure, and possibly, a warped sense of humour.
If you target independent travellers, backpackers, flashpackers, gap-year students, campers, or travel bloggers, and you want to enhance your website or brand awareness, there may be an advertising opportunity right for you on this website.
I have also worked with a number of top Tourism Authorities and travel related companies who have benefited from working with me (more details here).

Payment and Advertising Options
Put it this way. My background is Sicilian. So please give me an offer that I can’t refuse! I’m not interested in pissy text links that pay bugger all – but I’m definitely interested in a long term partnership that benefits both parties.
Honestly, I’ve had enough of really crap offers from shady characters from all over the world. I’ve spent so much time deleting these annoying emails, and this is time I’ll never get back!
So if you’re going to make an offer, make it worth my time and be upfront about it!
Make sure you are a relevant travel related organisation or product. Advertising about gambling or adult products doesn’t really fit into the site.
Still interested? Well then Contact me now and make my dream of being a full time travel blogger a reality!
