WEBSITE OVERVIEW


Keep Calm is a Travel and Inspiration website, created in 2012 to document my upcoming trip around the world, a passion that turned into a full-time job in 2014.

In just a little more than one year, Keep Calm saw an incredible growth in terms of traffic, engaged readers and subscribers. With almost 300,000 Page views per month, Keep Calm is now a well recognized and trusted travel blog worldwide.

 

I receive daily comments and emails from readers who decided to visit a destination or try a service/product because they have read about it on my blog.


We’ve had Sardinia on our list, but for some reason it keeps slipping down the list. Not now..cos we just found your blog, and it’s awesome!

-Rachel

WOW! I’m blown away from the detail of your response. That is so, so kind of you; I have never had such a detailed response from a blogger.

My blog is my full-time job, and the advertising and Affiliate links I place on it are part of my brand. This means that I DO NOT accept to advertise just any offer  for the sake of making money or scoring a trip.

Important Disclaimer on Social Media


Recently I decided to take a different approach with my social media accounts: If you are looking for bloggers with huge numbers (regardless of their engagement), then MY WEBSITE IS NOT RIGHT FOR YOU.


The “Twitter Case”: I cleaned my account to make sure that only people with real interest in what I have to say will stick with me. My aim is to create a real community of people who engage with my content. My motto is :

I was invited by Asus Italy for a 4 day trip in Morocco to promote the launch of their new mobile phone and reinforce the Brand awareness through a series of pictures published on my Instagram & Facebook account .

The campaign reached more than 80K people with 10k likes on social media only. The results were summarized in a presentation where I highlighted the best pictures on both platforms, a quick summary of the numbers and added an excel file with all the details for the client.

Please note that since the client is Asus Italy, the report is in Italian.

WORKING WITH TRAVEL BLOGGERS

Cooperating with a professional travel blogger is an innovative way to promote your products to the right audience! Some companies don’t trust working with bloggers, mainly because they don’t understand the full potential of this type of advertising.

The secret for a great partnership is finding the perfect fit for your brand: Find someone who’s professional and really excited about your product/service and you will see the results both immediately and in the long run!

Choose me only if you think I’ll be a good fit for you!

 

Being a professional travel blogger it’s a lot of work (even if people love to picture us on a beach), and I aim to ensure the best possible service for you. As I already said: Quality over quantity!

THE BENEFITS

  • TRUST: The readers tend to trust a person more compared to the traditional advertising options

  • ENTHUSIASMWhen you choose the right bloggers, they’ll convey real enthusiasm for your product/service

  • LONGEVITYThe content will stay online virtually forever (a huge advantage compared to other types of advertising)

  • GOOGLE FRIENDLY: If properly SEO optimized, your product can be in the spotlight for a very long time! (Make sure to clarify this with the blogger)

  • IMMEDIACY: Together with the use of social media, the voice on your services/products can be spread in real time
  • MEASURABLE: Your cooperation can be easily measured, as the bloggers can provide you with the stats on views, clicks and more!

THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME!

      Flo, parlarne in due parole sarebbe difficilissimo, posso solo dire che ci vuole coraggio, tanta passione e mai farsi abbattere dalle porte sbattute in faccia tante volte. Quando riusciro’ a creare il sito in Italiano ne faro’ un articolo semmai! 🙂

      Grazie Annalisa! Non conosco la tua storia, ma a me per trovare il coraggio ci sono voluti parecchi anni, quindi non demordere! 🙂

  3. Ciao Clelia, bella scelta di vita! Ho viaggiato sempre molto e a lungo da quando avevo 16 anni. Ora ne ho 64 e anche se sono diventato più “stanziale” continuo a farmi i miei giri assieme a mia moglie un bel po’ più giovane di me e a nostro figlio di 7 anni. Ti scrivo però per un altro motivo. Sono un omeopata e mi piacerebbe offrirti un trattamento gratuito per i tuoi attacchi di panico perchè so quanto sono spiacevoli. L’omeopatia funziona molto bene con questi malesseri. Fammi sapere se ti interessa che ti mando un questionario da riempire. Se non ti rispondo subito è perchè sono in partenza fra qualche giorno per Alonissos nelle Sporadi dove ha sede l’Accademia di omeopatia dove ho studiato e dove ogni anno torno. Te la consiglio è un’isola stupenda.

      Grazie Federico, appena ho un attimo di tempo la contatto! Ho gia’ provato con l’omeopatia (le ho provate un po tutte a dire il vero) ma con risultati altalenanti, pero’ un altro tentativo lo faccio sempre volentieri! Grazie ancora 🙂

  4. Hi I love your blog you are so informative and very helpfull. Where would you recommend to go in Sardina walking distance to a beautiful sandy beach, near places to eat, restaurants, supermarkets as we will NOT have a car. We would like to be able to walk and visit local markets, shops in a village/ small town and visit other places on the train or bus. On another note I would be interested in talking to you about doing some marketing for me if I was to get a holiday home in Sardinia. If you can get back to me asap thank you Sophia

    1. Post

      Hi Sophia, Thanks for your comment! Since you won’t have a car the places you could visit in Sardinia are limited but this doesn’t mean that they are less beautiful! The 2 places I always recommend to people who can only use public transport are :

      1) Villasimius: Easily reachable by bus from Cagliari and the town is in front of the beautiful white sandy “Simius” beach. If you want to walk to the beach you’ll have to rent a place or find a hotel that’s near the beach as the Village is pretty big and some locations are better than others of course! You will find shops, markets, restaurants, bars and everything you need! Also, from Villasimius there is a bus service run by ARST Sardinia and other private bus companies that will bring you to the nearby beaches and to Costa Rei /Muravera Village. If you didn’t already checked out you can see what properties/hotels are still available in Villasimius in here, as this is one of the most popular destinations in Sardinia and it can be difficult to find a suitable place if you don’t book asap.

      2) San Teodoro: Also good for transportation (I went there by bus and it was around 2 hours by bus, but a very comfortable ride), same applies in here. The beach “La cinta” is beautiful and at walking distance from the closest hotels and apartments in town. You can either relax or have fun in the many cocktail bars and aperitif places scattered around. Moving by bus in here is much easier than many other places in Sardinia and you could even get to Palau for the boat trip to the “arcipelago della Maddalena”, an activity that I highly recommend as it’s awesome and costs around 30/40 euros for 1 day trip including lunch. The plus of San Teodoro is also that it’s very close to Olbia airport and well connected to it, so ideal if you don’t have a car. To see the properties available in San Teodoro you can check it in here.

      I would also recommend Santa Teresa di Gallura, but it’s a bit trickier to move around without a car and only using public transports. It is still possible, don’t get me wrong, but compared to Villasimius and San Teodoro it is slightly trickier but I’d say you should consider it. It’s truly beautiful and you can reach Palau from there pretty easily and also the north-west coast, which is less crowded. The best airport is Olbia and it’s well connected to get to Santa Teresa.Check the availability for properties and hotels in here.

      I don’t know which month are you planning on visiting Sardinia but keep in mind that July/August is peak season and it’s going to be a lot more crowded in these destinations and also the availability (and prices) for the accommodation is going the scarce, that’s why I suggest you to book as soon as you can!

      Regarding a possible cooperation, you should explain to me what you need in more detail, you can use the contact form in here and I’ll try to get back to you as soon as I can (I’m about to leave for a week so now I’m going to be very busy, but I try to reoly to everyine when possible!)

      Thanks again for stopping by and I hope I was able to help you in planning your vacation!
      Cheers
      Clelia

      1. Hello, my name is Kevin Chambers and I’m currently working for a tech startup that has a great interest in working alongside bloggers to both help their articles reach new readers and to increase engagement with their current readers. Our application allows users to create links in 3D physical space. This feature, among many others, will make blog posts living things that exist in the real world, moving away from the ethereal white background of the internet.

        I am also a world traveller currently living in Seoul, Korea though our company is based in Ontario, Canada. I would like to discuss an opportunity for yourself and your network to have exclusive access to our application pre launch early in 2017. We’re confident that our platform will become an indispensable tool for bloggers and to others across a spectrum of interests.

        Please reply at your earliest convenience.

        All the best,


        Kevin Chambers

  5. Good afternoon,

    Next week we will be travelling to Sardinia for three weeks. I would appreciate it if you can advise me on good restaurants in the neighbourhood of Villasimius, Chia and Porto Cervo. We have a car so a bit further away is no problem. Thank you in advance.

    Kind regards,
    Joke van Deursen

      Hey Joke

      Regarding the restaurants, you can find some good info for Porto Cervo on my new guide here (it says it’s for couples but it really covers everything), for Chia there are no nearby restaurants, you’ll have to move a bit towards Santa Margherita di Pula, where you will find some good ones. Check out this link from Tripadvisor as I’ve been to the top ones (Bithia and Luna Tonda) a few times and they are quite good!

      For Villasimius I recommend Grill Su Gergenti, it’s a bit pricey but the food is good and the location is lovely, another one is Mesa the Janas, which has a great view and the food is delicious. Of course, you will find many other small local restaurant in Villasimius town (sometimes they change the owner so you better ask when you’re there if the food and service is still as good as always).

      Hope it helps and have a great time in Sardinia!
      Cheers
      Clelia

  6. Ciao Clelia,

    ho letto la tua intervista su ItalianIndie, mi sono un Fisioterapista e ho messo su un mio sito web, con Blog, da circa 2 mesi, in quanto un settore di nicchia spero di essere bravo e fortunato per almeno in parte realizzare quanto tu hai già fatto.

    Saluti

  7. Hi,

    I would love to write for See My Travels and would appreciate if you could send over some information on your sponsored post costs etc?

    I have a few topic suggestions:
    – splurge or save when choosing a hotel?
    – How to stay in luxury without breaking the bank

    Any thoughts would be great

    Thanks

    Melanie

  8. Cara Clelia, leggendo l’articolo su L’Unione Sarda mi sono ricordato di averti scritto mesi fa e ho pensato che tra l’altro non mi hai mai risposto.
    Bene, anticipavo i complimenti che ti avrei fatto dopo l’intervista che ho letto sulla carta stampata.
    Spero che ti abbiano fatto piacere.
    Erano sinceri, spontanei, disinteressati.
    Buona vita e buon viaggio.
    A°°°°°°°

  9. Ciao ho letto il tuo articolo, e volevo dirti che noi siamo una nuova ADV e ci piacerebbe collabborare con te
    in attesa di un tuo riscontro porgiamo i più cordiali saluti
    Peppe

  10. Hi Admin,

    I am interested to publish my content on your website, I have Travel, Places to see, Restaurant, Hotels related content. At least 5 articles for your blog, can I send some of them to you for your review?

    All are unique, fresh. Hope I will get a good response soon.

  11. Hi

    I am Jay I am an avid skier and author from Brighton I love to ski all over from the posh resorts in Chamonix to the budget options in Bansko. I am currently looking to write for you helping me showcase my writing and after publication I will promote the piece keepcalmandtravel.com with professional social media accounts. I can bring you lots of shares, engagement and build great value.

    I also write for great sites such as http://www.go-ski.co.uk, http://www.tipsfromthetlist.com, and http://www.alpinemojo.co.uk so I can get pieces from you published with relevant links back to your site.

    I am writing for rocketski.com at the moment, so am hoping that I can have a small relevant link back to them as well in my piece.

    I work very hard to make sure that the quality is at the top and I bring a great deal to the table for us. Some ideas for you to choose from for a piece would be

    Top Eco Ski Resorts for 2014
    Winter Olympics how to do the disciplines like a Pro
    Italy Coming Into its Own in 2014

    Please get back to me to discuss I am sure we can work on a great mutually beneficial deal. Content marketing is
    still a fantastic way to to build providing you keep everything quality and build relationships.

    Thanks

    Jay
