I was reaching beyond my comfort zone to contemplate a day at a luxury spa. For me just the idea of it is terrifying. I would much rather go for a jungle hike. But I think it is something I would need to tackle to be niched as a travel and lifestyle writer.
Neither of my ideal readers would be as put-off by such an indulgence when on vacation. They are not the types to treat themselves on a more regular basis.
Would they hire me as a freelance writer. Yes, or recommend me for a nonprofit’s newsletter. More important to me long term, they would both recommend my blog to others and share my posts and podcasts…most likely via email. They would be more likely to subscribe to my email list. And they would be interested in knowing if I had a book launch. They would be likely to fund an Indiegogo of some adventure travel I might do…if they could ride virtual-shotgun.
So it’s percolating.
