“I just wanted to quickly jot down how much I appreciate the content you’ve shared and the successes I’ve had from participating in this course. I’ve been going back to it repeatedly to remind myself of all the tips you’ve been giving. One of which is using social media correctly – I’ve joined many LinkedIn and Facebook Groups which have been building up my connections and I gained a guest post opportunity via Facebook and I was approached by Great Little Trains of Wales to see if I’d be interested in experiencing a couple of their train journeys and staying in their hotels in exchange for itinerary articles – all of which is paid. I also took your advice on pitching to brands, and I’ve landed two luxury hotels sponsorships!”

“Daniella’s confident approach inspires me to break free from any limiting beliefs holding me back, as well as to use my strengths and interests to compliment my journey. The bonus materials she provided gives me confidence to approach brands, editors, and PR agents, as well as help me be more efficient in terms or organization. The pitch trackers specifically help reduce unnecessary stress and save so much time. As a result, I’m able to focus on what’s important — travel for fulfillment and provide value in return. I’m eternally thankful for Daniella’s knowledge, patience, encouragement, and wisdom in helping other aspiring travel writers succeed. If your heart is made to travel, then Pitch to Travel is your jam! This course will teach you how to use your stories to make more memories all over the world. Because let’s face it, it’s a big world out there and it would be a shame not to experience it.”

Hi, I’m Daniella Schoeman, and I’m obsessed with pitching!
I firmly believe that anyone has the potential to become a successful travel writer who gets paid and sponsored for the work and the only thing holding you back is your pitching skills.
Case in point: I was landing travel sponsorships worth thousands of $$ less than a year after becoming a travel writer with a new blog, barely any audience and a brand new Instagram account.
“The course is designed to help with each step in becoming a travel journalist, starting with social media accounts, who to follow and where to post, all the way to developing pitches and contacting agencies for press trips. The mindset and preparation modules were key to allowing me to develop my portfolio and profiles, and successfully pitch brands, hotels and contacts. Thus, each step of the course felt like I was gaining something I needed as a travel writer. Having Daniella’s guidance on contacting hotels and companies allowed me to draft my own pitches which have actually led to a press trip to a luxury hotel in Ireland, post-Corona. Without Daniella’s tips, I would not have had the confidence to approach these companies, nor known what to say, and I am grateful for the specific examples she provided surrounding pitch email drafts.”
– Meghna Amin, Travel Journalist
“In taking Pitch to Travel, I have learned so much more than I originally thought I would! Daniella and Pitch to Travel have given me the confidence and skills to go from wannabe travel blogger to professional travel writer. Pitch to Travel has transformed how I write, post, and pitch and I couldn’t be more thankful that I found this course. Daniella is a true inspiration; she is so knowledgeable and it is worth every penny to take her Pitch to Travel course. The tips, tricks, and resources that are included in the course are priceless! I know that I will continue to use the skills I’ve learned from the course to be successful for years to come.”
