Introducing 4 HUGE updates in your Tourism Tribe community
Tourism Tribe celebrated it’s first birthday in July 2016
We (the founders) have had a great time full of rewarding moments. This included huge smiles when you’ve told us that you’re finding the Tribe valuable to you and your business but we’ve also had a full year of learnings and brainstorming solutions when things we’ve tried just haven’t quite hit the mark!
From the bottom of our hearts, thanks for your feedback along the way.
We always knew the first 12 months would be a test and an important value in our business is continual evolution. We want Tourism Tribe to remain contemporary and meaningful to our members and for the Tribe to keep growing, because the more engaged members on the platform, the more questions and knowledge will be shared and the entire industry will benefit. That’s why we’re really pleased to be announcing new features to enhance value for Tribe members and a flexible membership model with options that respond to your feedback.
Feature 1 – The Zoom Room
The last 12 months have shown that one of most used feature of Tourism Tribe were our help forums! Well, we’ve taken the concept of ‘post a question and get an answer from an expert’ one step further and created an online Video Conference Room! We called it the Zoom Room (as in get the answer you need instantly!)
Tourism Tribe’s Zoom Room is open every Thursday at 11 am Queensland time and hosted by one of our Tourism Experts.
You can just ‘rock up’ (using your computer), don’t need to RSVP and pick the brains of our Experts.
Access to the Zoom Room is covered by our No Brainer and Platinum plans. Our No Brainer Plan is $199 per year and will cover you for 50 Zoom Room Brain Picking sessions. How great that for value!!
To upgrade to the Zoom Room visit our membership options page and ‘sign up’ for the new plan. You will only be charged the Pro Rata amount until your new billing cycle.
Feature 2 – Post a job request on the Job Board
We’ve seen in the forum posts over the past 12 months that sometimes our members just don’t have the time or skills to accomplish a specific task or project themselves and ask for recommendations of suppliers on the forums.
We’ve thought long and hard about how to ensure you get sufficient quotes and offers and have developed the Tourism Tribe Job Request Board. The job request board can be used for anything tourism or digital related.
You can post a job request here and view the whole job board here.
When you post a job request on the Job Board, our Tourism Tribe Trusted Experts will instantly be notified and be able to get back to you with quotes and plans to get your task completed. This is a much better process than posting on the forums as your forum post may not be seen by everyone!
Remember, Tourism Tribe Experts have been hand selected by ourselves and are industry experts. They are the guys who actively participate in the forums and help out with everyone’s questions.
Accessing the job board is free for all Tourism Tribe members.
Psssst: we will soon also include our Tourism students on our job boards, allowing them to respond and complete your project as work experience. So look out for that announcement.
Feature 3 – Recommend Tourism Tribe and get rewarded
We’re so confident that Tourism Tribe is valuable for the industry that we don’t want to keep it a secret. There are more than 700 of you now in the Tribe and the feedback has been so positive that we’re asking your help to get the word out there so more tourism businesses can benefit.
If you know a tourism business or local council or tourism association that has people working in it who you’d like to enable to develop their skills so they can be more successful, then we’re empowering you with the tools to easily invite them to join Tourism Tribe and we want to reward you for helping us get the message out there. We’ll pay you $10 for every sign up, directly into your PayPal account!
To make this happen you’ll need to head to the Tribe’s affiliate area (once logged in of course) https://www.tourismtribe.com/affiliate-area/ and register for your affiliate account. We will in turn send you a personalised link to use to refer the Tribe, as well as logos if you wish to put them on your website. It’s that easy!
