Rebranding/ Small Niche Big $

Is your blog heading in a new direction? Want to become niche in a sea of generalization? Or do you just need ideas to expand from hobby blog to income generating website? Get insight from Jody Halsted on how to rebrand and earn big money from a small niche.

In 2008 Jody Halsted’s blog Have Kid Will Travel was named the top family travel blog by Budget Travel. By 2010 there were over a dozen blogs using some form of her website name. Imitation is the highest form of flattery….

In 2011 Jody rebranded her blog as Family Rambling- and made sure to trademark it! Soon, thanks to strong readership and marketing, Family Rambling bypassed the success of HKWT.

In 2012, as the popularity of family travel blogs increased, Jody took a step to further re-brand and started Ireland With Kids (which became Ireland Family Vacations). As the only website 100% focused on family travel in Ireland, Jody has become the most sought-after expert in Ireland group travel. Her website has expanded beyond the blog and now includes ebooks, product sales, itinerary planning, and a podcast- allowing her to hire assistants and increasing the family’s travel budget!

In fact, Ireland Family Vacations is so successful that Jody recently sold Family Rambling to concentrate solely on her niche site! (It is also freeing up some time for Jody to launch a new niche site in 2017!)
