Working with The Broke Backpacker has provided us with so many opportunities that we never would have had access to without Will’s expert knowledge and connections within the blogging world. Will’s expertise within social media and marketing proved instrumental during our company’s fundraising campaign, Will is a fun, enigmatic guy and the whole team at Tripeasel watches his adventures religiously.

Since we first started the blog, we have appeared in numerous ‘Top Blogger’ lists as well as being nominated for several awards, most of which we didn’t collect.

Due to the extremely large volume of emails we receive on a daily basis, please note the following…

  • We do not offer free exposure for start-ups, apps or anything else.
  • We do not share infographics.
  • We do not work for free – so don’t ask.
  • We do not work in exchange for products or services alone.
  • We very rarely take guest posts – if you’re gonna pitch, it better be one hell of a pitch.
  • Unless you have a budget of over $1000, we will not be able to work together on an advertising campaign.
