Work with Us
Minimalist Journeys is a lifestyle and travel blog focused on simple, intentional living and sustainable travel. We offer practical advice, and tried and tested tools to people who want to
- create a more meaningful and balanced life, pursuing what truly matters to them and/or
- travel affordably, in a more authentic and respectful way.
With a combined corporate experience of more than 20 years in product management and management consulting, it may not come as a surprise that we research before we buy and critically assess products and services we come across.
As minimalists, our possessions are limited to those that give us true value. What we own and use every day has been carefully researched and is undergoing long-term testing. Likewise, as experiences are more important to us than material items, we are very tuned in to what does (and does not) comprise a good service experience.
So, how may what we do be applicable to you and how can we work together? There are a number of ways we can add value to your business (and at the same time help our audience).
Product and Services related Consulting
We are interested in working with organisations which offer products and services that help our audience simplify their lives/finances, live more sustainably, and/or travel in a more authentic and respectful way, and which continuously seek to improve their offering.
As long-term users of high-quality, technical clothing; light-weight, multi-functional travel gear, and a multitude of apps, we provide constructive feedback on the pros and cons of your product (especially in comparison with competitor products) and ideas for product improvements.
Minimalist Journeys accepts sample products on a select basis when we know
- we can utilize the product, and it may benefit our audience,
- we can seamlessly integrate coverage on our website (for example as a review or product round-up post), and
- sufficient supply chain screening is in place to ensure the product is sustainably and ethically sourced.
As full-time travellers who write about their experiences, we have used a broad range of transport and activities providers, and have stayed in hundreds of accommodations over the years. And until December 2020, we were guest accommodation providers ourselves, so we also understand the host’s perspective. We, therefore, believe we can comment on your service with a degree of authority.
We offer independent, honest, professional appraisals of travel and hospitality industry services to help providers create an even better experience for their guests.
Whether your product or service has been around for a while or has not been launched yet, we can provide valuable input. If your product/s or service/s could use a professional, unbiased assessment please get in touch.
We write articles not just for our own website but also contribute to other print/online publications.
Keen to further develop our portfolio, we are always looking for collaborations with
- print/online publications wanting to feature and
- tourism industry participants wanting to showcase
travel experiences (products/services) that take a holistic and inclusive approach to the environment and community they operate in.
Affiliate Marketing and Advertising
We are open to exploring affiliate marketing and advertising opportunities that are aligned with our common core values and Minimalist Journey’s philosophy of experiencing more by living with less.
In the first instance, these are products and services we already use:
- our gear and apps; and
- tourism industry services, including online booking platforms, accommodation and transport providers as well as activity and tour operators.
We only work with organizations which offer products and services we have used and are happy to recommend to our growing readership. If you believe your product or service might suit our audience please get in touch. While we are always scanning the market for products and services that better meet our (and our audience’s) needs, we may not be aware of your offering.
Affiliate Program Management
We help small business merchants through our proactive affiliate program management system and networks. Affiliates, like ourselves, are independent online marketers who, for a commission, promote products or services sold by merchants.
Small businesses do not always have the resources or experience to effectively grow affiliate programs, which is where outsourced program managers like ourselves can add value. If you are a small business interested in broadening your customer reach with your own affiliate marketing program please get in touch.
