JOIN THE GIPPSLAND TRIBE
YOU'LL GET ANSWERS HELP AND SUPPORT TO GROW YOUR BUSINESS ONLINE
WHO SHOULD JOIN?
The Gippsland Tourism Tribe special offer is for Gippsland tourism operators who are running a tourism business and trying to keep up with ever changing technology.
Have you got excellent customer service skills, love the industry but you struggle to get your head around all the web marketing techniques?
You don’t have time to attend workshops, but when you do you enjoy the networking opportunity and you learn a lot. However, when you get back to the “real world” you rarely have time to implement all the ideas you heard about.
Sound familiar? Then the Tribe is for you.
Do you work in a state, regional or local tourism organisation? Do people in the tourism industry come to you for advice on “everything”. The Tribe has also been created for those who are in the business of supporting the tourism industry. We know you’re busy enough, but you need to be on top of your game and at the very least, know all about digital.
Let us know via live chat when you sign up and we’ll give you exclusive access to our ‘Destination Champions’ forum where you’ll be able to learn from other tourism organisations.
Do you work as a consultant or organisation that helps tourism businesses with online marketing?
If so, then this offer is not for you, it’s for tourism operators. However, we’d love to see you participate in the tribe and we’d love to hear from you! Contact us today.

Frequently Asked Questions
Is there a free option?
Tourism Tribe has been developed on a community basis with the co-founders volunteering their time and resources to its set up and maintenance and coaches are also volunteering their time to moderate the forums and run online training sessions. All participants are asked to pay a contribution so we can keep the platform and content current and useful.
Doesn’t my web person look after that?
Your web developer looks after the development and look and feel of your website – that’s their specialty. Tourism Tribe goes well beyond that and focuses on enabling you and your staff to take your business to the next digital level.
Can I still access the Tourism e kit?
Most certainly! Once you are an active Tribe Member you will be able to view the updated Tourism e kit tutorials AND ask questions on the live chat and forum.
Can I sign up as a company?
As this is a coaching platform, the membership is ‘per staff member’. If you have a company that requires more than five memberships please contact us so we can work out the best plan for your team.
How quickly can I get an answer?
The forum and live chat hotline are staffed every weekday. You can expect an answer within three to five hours. If you require an immediate answer you can schedule an immediate call.
