Our Travels: Montpellier, France

It probably comes as no surprise to you that the World Words team has a serious case of wanderlust. After all, it’s those itchy feet that led us to specialise in travel content in the first place. We don’t just love to write about global destinations, we get out there and explore them for ourselves, which is what makes our content so well informed.

The Our Travels blog series gives us the chance to share our very best travel stories with you each month. Our jet-setting writers and editors have visited worldwide destinations as varied as Oman, Estonia and Quebec City.

In this month’s blog, World Words content writer Ruth heads to the sunny south of France to explore Montpellier…

Making the Most of Your Ideas: How to Turn One Concept Into Lots of Content

Content marketing is not a sprint but a long-haul journey. It requires you to create consistently engaging content on an ongoing basis, which means coming up with idea after idea after idea after idea – not always an easy task.

But coming up with one idea doesn’t necessarily mean only getting one piece of written travel content. In fact, if you’re only getting a single article, blog or other piece of travel content out of each idea that springs to mind, you are wasting your time. Of course, every piece you write must be original and distinctive, but this blog will explain how a single lightbulb moment can light up a whole room full of content concepts. Scroll down for our expert tips.

Our Top Winter Travel Content: Part Two

More than a month has passed since we the first part of our top winter travel content series… so here’s part two.

Last time, we only scratched the surface of winter travel content we’ve completed for our clients, so this time we are diving a little bit deeper. We’ll start with a piece we had published on Run in the Dark Edinburgh, a night-time jogging event in the Scottish capital. Meanwhile, for anybody needing last-minute ski holiday inspiration, we have pulled out features on Canada’s Mont-Tremblant and the Swiss mountain resort Zermatt. And, because we know that some of the more forward-thinking among you may already be planning your summer escape, we have also included a destination guide we produced last year on the Languedoc region in sun-drenched southern France.

Last but not least, for those wanting to improve their written travel content in 2016, we’ve also shared some of our top editing tips with Media Kitty. So what are you waiting for? Scroll on down to read a short excerpt from each.
