How We Make Money

UBGuest is a travel blog with a readership that continues to grow month after month. Through our content, hundreds of readers have not only learned about the most useful travel advice but also identified the best recommendations that give them the best value for their money. 

Our core value is to ensure we provide the very best content to our audience based on 90% of our experience and 10% those of other travelers. And given that our vision is to grow into a useful content hub for travel enthusiasts like us, we’ll continue to scale UBGuest to make it one of the best platforms in the travel space.

But How Exactly Does UBGuest Make Money? 

We don’t come across this question quite often, but that doesn’t mean it’s not important. 

As a reader supported platform, we believe it’s important to be transparent not only with our content but also with how we make money. Moreover, ads and affiliate networks requires us to clearly declare our sources of income as a way to enforce transparency and uphold trustworthiness in online business. 

Like many blogs in the travel industry, it wouldn’t be possible for us to make money online if we didn’t have a readership to our blog. And without money ploughed back from our effort to grow this blog, it would be impossible for UBGuest to exist in the first place. 

With that said, here’s the breakdown on how we make money as a travel blog: 

Affiliate Marketing 

UBGuest participates in recommending products sold by different networks. All of our recommendation pages include affiliate links to different platforms such as Amazon and manufacturer websites. When you come to our site, read our content, click on our recommendations, and then buy the products that we recommend, we will earn a small commission from the sale. 

One thing we need you to understand is that we do not in any way influence the cost of the product and the affiliate commission that we earn. That’s subject to affiliate networks’ discretion. 

Display Advertising 

In addition to promoting affiliate products, UBGuest also makes money via display ads. As you read a majority of our blog posts, you’ll see ads when you scroll down the page. Served by agencies such as Google AdSense, Ezoic, and Mediavine, advertising networks will track the impressions and clicks that he site registers and then reward us a certain amount of money based on their set cost per 1,000 views. 

We’re aware that advertising networks have policies that differ from one another. And as much as that’s the case, have tried as much as we can to comply with all of their rules. And we will never place ads above user experience of UBGuest. 

Sponsored Content 

Sponsored posts aren’t common on our travel blog, but we do occasionally make money from them. From time to time, blog and ecommerce website owners will contact us and ask if we would mind doing a sponsored post for them in return for a certain amount of money. 

We will always mark these posts as sponsored to maintain our integrity and transparency.  

Final Words 

Our travel blog continues to grow into a useful platform for our readers as well as us, and we can’t be more proud of what it has become so far. And as a reader supported platform, we just wanted to let you know that we’re grateful for your continuous engagement to our blog content. 

Our content and editorial team will continue to work hard to provide you with up-to-date and accurate information to help you become a better traveler.
