As philosopher Confucius said, over 2,500 years ago, “Choose a job you love and you will never have to work a day in your life.” Wise words from a man who lived thousands of years before the Internet, mass communication and the tourism industry. A man who had no idea about the vast amount of choices that many people would have today when it came to their career, lifestyle and travel opportunities.
Today, the likes of Tim Ferris with his book ‘The Four Hour Work Week’ and a host of other Internet whizz-kids who call themselves ‘Digital Nomads’ have become famous for promoting the concept of pleasure over grind. Use your time doing what you love rather than toiling away in an office and spending just four or five weeks a year living the way you really want to.
As our friends over at We Love Travel tell us: ‘Stop Dreaming. Start Doing.’ But is it as easy as that? How do you fund your life of adventure?
We Love Travel have developed a unique concept, which brings together people with a passion for travel. They create and provide websites for these people allowing them to spread the word about a special place that they love, whilst giving them the opportunity to make a little (or a lot!) of money out of the website through affiliate marketing.
It works like this. Do you just love [ _______ ]? [Replace with your own personal paradise] Have eaten at every restaurant, drunk in every bar and danced in every nightclub? Do you know every adventure there is to do, even some hidden gems that only the locals know about? Then you could be the ideal person to promote the destination to fellow backpackers and tourists!
As you share blogs, reviews, events and insider tips – the more people that are interested in your destination and the more people you get visiting your website and booking hotels etc. – the more income you can potentially make to keep on living in the destination of your dreams!
You, or yourself and a group of friends, can buy one of the ‘We Love Travel’ websites for a one-off fee – and for this, the company will set up the website, give you full training on how to use the ‘Content Management System’ and three months support on how to drive traffic and make money from your site. After that, you have total control of your website and any affiliate sales you make (anything from hotels, to insurance, clothing and tours!) is 100% yours! Check out the destinations page now to find out what locations are still available to buy.
We Love Travel was founded three years ago by two English guys, Ryan and Jonathon with a huge passion for travel, in particular, South East Asia. The whole concept began with the very first website We Love Koh Lipe in 2009. Both Ryan and Jonathon had been living on the paradise island for a few years and were totally head over heels in love with the place. It seems that everybody at some point during their lives finds that one special place that is close to their heart.
The clear turquise waters of Koh Lipe, Thailand – easy to fall in love with!
Following the success of ‘We Love Koh Lipe’ they received requests from fellow travellers who wanted to replicate the website for their favourite destination and share their passion for the places they loved. Who could be better qualified to promote a destination than the destination’s biggest fan?
And that’s how We Love Travel was born; now covering 20 destinations online from Sydney to the Maldives! And that’s the beautiful thing about travel – each person falls in love with a different place. So, tell us – where in the world have you fallen in love with?
