Finstrip - information travel blog can bring 150 thousand rubles!

A bit late, but I post Finstrip forAutumn and the beginning of winter 2013. Why are these months and not current? Because at this particular time I have a surge in earnings. Probably, you have already noticed that my Finstrips are traditionally published during this period. Yes, there are still summer Finstrips, but, on the contrary, they are “failures”. Somewhere in February, earnings begin to fall, reaching its minimum in April-May and lasts so until August. Earlier, there was a rise in earnings in the middle of summer, but there was little summer traffic, because I’m writing a little about this topic. Thus, the next finistrip with the minimum earnings will be published on the blog closer to the end of the summer.

UPDATE. Earnings from tickets fell (details here), but other affiliate programs are still working less or less well.

How so?

You ask me how it happened, where did such a serious surge in earnings come from? And I answer, I do not know :) Believe it or not. Yes, increased attendance, but not so much. By the way, here is the average for the month, but actually rose to 7-8 thousand per day. Most likely, a planned activity in one direction is bearing fruit, even if I do not use the seo and business approach (all kinds of sales). I don’t have any advertisements here for any kind of weight loss diets or e-cigarettes, there are no these terrible popanders and a large number of blinking banners, I don’t sniff anything and do not sell them. But there are Aviasales (with their Travelpayouts affiliate program), which I always use myself, Liberty Insurance, which I arrange for myself and my family on trips, contextual advertising, to which I personally got used and it does not annoy me either on our website or on others.

My conclusion so far is that I am quite longdeveloped the Thai theme, wrote a lot of articles and after a while went to the top for these requests. That is, as I wrote above, went in the same direction all these years. Of course, it is somewhat easier for me, I started even when the competition in Thailand was not so high. On the other hand, the spring-summer period is not at all profitable for me, and I have to master some other country in an amicable way, exactly where they are going at that time.

And yet, you can consider it a superstition or something else, but perhaps this is due to the fact that I registered SP and started paying taxes. Whatever our country, I am now clean before it, and the Universe decided to give me such a gift.

Message to different categories of people

To well-wishers

Anyone who can be glad for us, thank you! After all, this is thanks to you, too, thanks to your support. Special thanks to those who understand why this blog is being kept at all and what is the use of it. After all, it is not straightforward for the sake of money, and initially there was no income at all, they started with a complete zero and even a minus. And it turned out what happened. In my opinion (even if it will not be too modest) a well-deserved reward came after hard work, and now for a while our family can take a little breath and make their lives a little more comfortable (as far as possible with Yegor), having lived in Thailand in good house, with a rented car :)

Those who fail

Guys, everything is real! Perhaps you don’t succeed now, as I do, but there are no ready-made solutions for everything in the world. I have repeatedly written that my activity is not very effective, such earnings can be achieved much faster if we apply the laws of business and analytics. It's just that my way is creative and time consuming, but the most important thing is that I like what I do. In general, I want to say that try further, do not be afraid to take risks, and do not give up! But most importantly, do not forget to include your head and intuition, because it is not always possible to just repeat for someone. Well, keep in mind that for the first two years I sat at a computer for 15 hours a day, and even now I often disappear so that my family does not see me all day. And yes, blogging is not for everyone, freebies are not there.

An important point. Our blog is not quite a classic travel blog; it’s rather an informational content project interspersed with personal themes. As you know, these are different formats and different monetization. Read my posts:

Affiliate programs not for travel blogs


I thought for a long time, whether to post this post or not,because for certain there will be envious or detractors, but it would be dishonest to keep silent with regards to regular readers. So, I would like to say to all those envious who came here enviously that a disabled child goes to such a bonus with all the consequences (terrible sleep, a lot of nerves, expensive spending, visits to doctors, etc.). So envying us, you risk getting not only the advantages of our life, but also the disadvantages. And I’m sure that if it were not for my special son, nothing would have happened, maybe I’d spit on everything for a long time. Well, you can be a little happy, because this income is not constant and now it has already fallen to the level of summer 2013. Will it increase by next fall, I do not know.

P.S. Finstrip is not written to boast, just by tradition I post it 1-2 times a year. In fact, there is nothing more to boast about, given the work I have now, it doesn’t differ much from regular work. Well, not all stable.

Life hacking 1 - how to buy a good insurance

Choosing insurance is now unrealistically difficult, so to help all travelers, I compile a rating. To do this, I constantly monitor forums, study insurance contracts and use insurance by myself.

Life hacking 2 - how to find a hotel 20% cheaper

First, choose a hotel on Booking. They have a good offer base, but the prices are NOT the best! The same hotel can often be found 20% cheaper in other systems through the RoomGuru service.
