S3 E20: On Press Trips with Vicky Flip Flop

S3 E20: On Press Trips with Vicky Flip Flop

In this week’s episode, I chat with Vicky Flip Flop about the nitty gritty of going on press trips – what it’s really like, how to get invited on them, and how to provide value to brands.

We talked about:

  • Vicky’s journey as a festival blogger and how it’s opened her up to some “cheeky” collaborations
  • Whether it was easier for us starting out in blogging before everyone had slick websites with all the bells and whistles (check out Vickys blog post on this topic)
  • How Vicky knew it was time to take her blog full-time
  • The stress that comes with being a digital nomad
  • What it’s like to go on a press trip and why it’s not a free holiday
  • The things that provide value to brands and what could get you in trouble as a blogger
  • Why Vicky hates Instagram and my top tip for falling back in love with the platform
  • My conversation with Anna aka Ardent Wanderess 
  • How Vicky stays consistent with blogging three times a week
