You can also add this experience to your CV / resume and we can also provide a reference and advice about making a career in travel writing. If you are good enough, we will pay you to write for our website.

Due to receiving sub standard articles in the past we are unlikely to pay straight away. If you have no experience, no published articles or are not willing to demonstrate your writing style then please don't expect us to pay you to write for our website. We do pay for articles which add value to our website and to writers who we know are of a good standard. 

Other Options for Payment

  • We offer companies the chance to pay and sponsor articles, if your article gets chosen to be sponsored we will provide a revenue share.
  • You could independently contact companies seeking sponsorship, for example write a commerical article eg. the best hostels to stay in Sydney and then contact accommodation providers in the country to advertise.
  • You could write a promotional or commercial article e.g. '10 best hiking shoes to buy', 'Top 10 hotel comparison websites', '10 best hostels in Australia', 'How to Travel Cheaply Across the USA', '5 best online TEFL courses' or anything similar. We will then add relevant affiliate banners (if we have any) and if anyone clicks through and buys anything we again offer a revenue share.

Testimonial

"I would like to write this little note to say, thank you. I really appreciate the opportunity you gave me to have work published on your website. Amazingly, it has lead to other work in the meantime, and I would not have had these opportunities if you had not first accepted my writing for World 365. Your help and support have made a big difference to my (now actual) writing career." - Jade Rudnyckyj
