Today we have the chance to share the success story of one of our students, Arianny Rodriguez of prepandshine.com
Arianny’s story is one of our favorites because she has taken ALL of our courses!
Arianny began by taking the 5-Day Email Crash course to get her blog started. Knowing that she wanted all the information she could get to make her blog a success, she signed up for the 30-Day Blogging Blastoff Course in April of 2018, and then jumped right into the Travel Blogging Fast Track in May.
At the time of sending us her story, Arianny was taking the initial steps of reaching out to PR companies/reps, Travel Bureaus, hotels, and resorts.
As an NYC resident, she has been invited to attend a new attraction in Time Square with her family (for free of course!), attend a press luncheon for a new travel website, and even was invited to meet a celebrity chef in his kitchen.
Most recently, Arianny was able to land a spot with a luxury tour service in NYC for her and her husband. The luxury culinary experience took them to 3 Michelin star restaurants that provided exceptional food and wine pairings, a special access tour at each of the restaurants, and a black car service around NYC!
She also landed a trip for her and her family for a weekend at Hershey Park with media rate hotel rooms and comped tickets to the amusement park.
These opportunities all came about because she learned the importance of joining PR lists, making connections, and pitching to brands/businesses by taking the Travel Blogging Fast Track.
Arianny also received a comped stay for her and her family at an all-inclusive resort when a visitor bureau reached out to her directly. In addition to the stay, her family is receiving comped meals & activities. The fun's just beginning! After sharing a post on a local amusement park, she was offered an ambassadorship including multiple visits, hotel stays, and more!
When asked what she thinks people considering taking one of our courses should know, she said “Since both of these courses are so well rounded in what they teach, I feel extremely comfortable that I have more than enough information to start with. As of yesterday, I went from a demanding full-time job, to an easier part-time job so that I can focus more on my blog. Eventually, I will do this full-time. I’m looking forward to the little things like being able to take my kids to school!”
I am sure we will hear more great stories about Arianny's adventures in NYC and beyond!
