Working with Amateur Traveler - Travel for the love of it

There are many different ways to work with Amateur Traveler. Contact Chris if you have questions at host [at]

Podcasts Advertising

Amateur Traveler podcast ads can be baked into a podcast episode when it releases. The typical episode will get around 11K downloads in the first month and 14-15k downloads by the end of the second month. I currently leave in ads for 3 months.
