There is SO much information out there, and before you know it, all those paid, monthly services can start to add up! On the flip side, there are also a ton of FREE resources to help catapult your travel blog without breaking the bank.
My favorite social media platforms include Pinterest, a search engine with staying power for promoting blog posts, Instagram and YouTube. I also recommend PLANN, an app to organize and breakdown your social media strategy. My go-to tools include Canva, to create pin-worthy images; Lightroom, to make your photos pop; and HARO, an online query sent out by reporters looking for a story on a specific topic.
And my newest favorite, Tailwind, a powerful app where you can schedule a whole weeks’s worth of pins in minutes. With Tailwind you’ll also know exactly when to schedule your pins for the best engagement, learn how to grow with Tribes, maximize evergreen content, and have access to in-depth analytics that will help you drive traffic.

What is the Best Social Media Platform to Promote My Travel Blog?
From Instagram and Facebook to Pinterest, YouTube, Twitter, and more, it is A LOT to learn. Instead of spreading yourself thin and doing a lot of things sub-par, I recommend starting with one platform and mastering that before posting to others.
