Reflecting on TBU in Innsbruck

Innsbruck Hofgarten
I just got back from a Travel Bloggers Conference in Innsbruck. TBU, Travel Bloggers Unite, and that`s what is was, travel bloggers from all over the world united in the capital of Tirol.

Even though it was a business trip, it was also lovely to meet up with old friends and getting to know new friends. Being surrounded by likeminded people always gives me an extra energy boost that I`m doing a good job and I`m following my true passion: traveling & discovering the world while trying to be an inspiration to others.

What I`ve taken away from TBU Innsbruck

A few things keep lingering in my mind: create a media pack, pitch to PR and that I want to improve my writing with the writing tips from Abigail King. All workshops I attended brought me something! And for those who couldn`t attend the conference I included the links to slides or videos of the talks :)

Email Marketing: “Building Your Email List is a Marathon, Not a Sprint.”
By @andrewghayes – slides

Monetizing: “Be Creative” and “Value Yourself”
By @velvetescape and @solotraveler – video

Travel Writing: “Experiment – Play around & Enjoy”
By @insidetravellab – slides

Pitching to PR: “Do your research”
By @Ruth_Elizabeth for FourBGB – slides

WordPress: “Taking control of WordPress”
By @Johnonolan

Other than the workshops, there were two interesting photo tours with @KenKaminesky giving photography tips and @KirstenAlana getting everyone excited about iPhoneography.

There were also two panels, one about “Finding your niche” and the other one about “Blog Trips” with yours truly ;-) ~ Video

Lots to take in after this conference and then I haven`t even talked about the lovely location we were at, but stay tuned, because there will be more to come!
