I am greatly looking forward to moderating a panel this coming Saturday, March 9th, 2019 at the British Columbia Travel Writers Symposium on ‘Monetizing Your Storytelling Content’.
Building sustainable funding models around storytelling projects is a topic that I am researching and exploring at the moment for a Master’s project with Mary McDonald (and some non-Master’s help from Lori Yearwood). Our plan is to give StoryToGo a much needed redesign and share the Case Studies in Sustainable Funding Models for Storytelling here in the StoryToGo Community, with all of you.
Saturday’s panel features three smart and successful storytellers and entrepreneurs from Vancouver’s travel media community. They include Vancouver blogger Miss 604 Rebecca Bollwitt (who is a pioneer in turning blogging into a business), popular YouTuber Josh Rimer (who also happens to be Mr Gay Canada 2019), and cross-platform storyteller Claudia Laroye The Travelling Mom (who has successfully bridged the worlds of traditionally and digital media in her storytelling).
So this brings me to my question to you, what questions would you ask these three around monetizing your storytelling content and building a sustainable funding model behind your storytelling?
Looking forward to your thoughts and including what I can into the panel. I will be sharing what we learn from our panelists over here at StoryToGo in the coming weeks.
