Get Paid to Write About Points and Travel
I’m putting out a call for contributors to all TPG readers who have something valuable to say. My managing editor, Eric, and I are looking for experts on different airline, hotel, car and credit card programs who want to share their insider tips and tricks - and make some cash while doing it.
I will still be blogging daily with my take on the best promotions and expert tips, but I personally believe there are so many insider tips out there that I simply cannot be the expert on everything. I am looking for a few great points pros to become the TPG in-house experts on various loyalty programs as well as travel niches such as business travel, expat travel, meeting planners, family travel and more. Contributors will be paid per post with the potential for bonuses and columnist opportunities.
Now, before we get inundated with ideas and fully written articles, there are a few things to keep in mind.
If you’re going to write about any points program, you must:
1. Know all the ins and out about the program you are writing about. Please tell us why you are an expert in the area you'd like to write about.
2. Have something completely original, timely and interesting to share that we haven’t seen all over the other blogs … or here on ThePointsGuy.com (so read my backlog of posts).
We are ONLY looking for new material, secret tips on acquiring and using points that you won’t find anywhere else, and above all, a unique professional take and tone. We will discuss pay once we've identified you as a potential writer for the site.
You can direct your ideas and submissions to Eric: firstname.lastname@example.org. I suggest pitching us an idea first before you put the time into writing a post and Eric will work directly with you if it is something we decide would make sense for the site.
As always, feel free to ask any questions, but I look forward to amping up the content level on the site and hearing what you have to say!
