TRAVEL CONTENT & WRITING GUIDELINES
So, what is it that we are looking for at Beat My Path? As we mentioned above, we have some fairly strict guidelines, and we can only accept bloggers and content that meet our high expectations. Please review our requirements below, prior to submitting your application. We will not respond to questions that have been answered in the content of this page, nor will we accept anything, or anyone, who doesn’t meet our guidelines.
First things first, we do not accept single articles. In order to be paid for your content through our travel blog, you must provide multiple articles on a destination that you have travelled to, or that you live in. Each blog article provided by you must be travel related, and each of your articles must also be related to each other in some way, through an attraction, a city, a country, or a region.
We only accept content in blocks, at the following minimum levels.
ARTICLES WRITTEN ABOUT A SINGLE CITY – Minimum of 5 Articles.
ARTICLES WRITTEN ABOUT A SINGLE COUNTRY – Minimum of 10 Articles.
ARTICLES WRITTEN ABOUT A TRAVEL REGION – Minimum Of 10 Articles.
This means, for example, that if you are writing about the country of Australia, you must provide 10 separate articles about Australia. These articles can be about any city or attraction in Australia or can be a compilation of cities or attractions in Australia, such as “The Top 20 Thing To Do In Sydney”, or “The Top 10 Beaches On The Gold Coast.”
PLEASE NOTE: You cannot “mix-and-match.” For example, we will not accept 3 articles about a city in Europe, and 7 articles about a country in South America. In this example, we would only accept 5 articles about a city in Europe, 10 articles about a country in South America, or 10 articles about either Europe or South America. You must also submit your articles together, at the same time. We will not accept articles that are provided “one by one.”
In order for each individual article to count towards your content block, it must adhere to the following standards;
- Each article must be well-written and engaging to the reader.
- Each article must be detailed and informative.
- Each article must be a minimum of 1500 words, although we actually recommend more.
- Each article must have a structured layout and utilise headings and sub-headings throughout the content.
- Each article must contain a high-resolution featured image (Minimum 2000px x 1000px). This image must be original, and it must have been taken by yourself.
- Each article must contain a minimum of 5 high-quality engaging images throughout the textual content. These images must be original, and they must have been taken by yourself.
- You must have experienced the subject of your article for yourself. We will not accept articles about subjects that you have not experienced for yourself. Verification of your experience may be required, through photos, tickets or receipts.
- You must be willing to make edits and changes to your content, as required.
- Each article must contain NO HYPERLINKS to external websites.
PLEASE NOTE: Articles will not be accepted if they have been published in any other place online.
FOR MORE INFORMATION: Please read the Essential Travel Blog Writing Tips page on our website.
ACCEPTABLE TOPIC EXAMPLES
The topics you plan on writing about should always be pre-approved by us – prior to commencing the article – in order to provide clarity on what will or won’t be accepted before you spend hours writing your content. However, as a guide, we encourage articles around the following subjects;
- Best Countries to Visit In…
- Best Cities to Visit In…
- Top Things to Do In…
- Best Beaches In…
- Best Bars & Nightclubs In…
- Where to Eat When Visiting…
- Best Places to Shop In
- … and the list goes on!
There really is so much to write about that you shouldn’t find a problem finding the perfect subject for your articles, but when in doubt, please contact us for clarification and further guidance!
PAYMENT FOR APPROVED CONTENT
Payment for approved articles is made through PayPal, into your nominated account, at a rate of $200 per article. In the event the content you provide is exceptionally mind-blowing, these rates may be negotiated.
