Darren, a tourism operator from the Surfers Paradise, has just joined Tourism Tribe and is now able to access the support from our experts via the live chat, forums and the Tourism e kit tutorials.

He asked me a question using the live chat and I thought others might have the same question and could benefit from our conversation.

Hi  Wendy, Where do I start?

My advice to him was to complete the digital check up it’s free and available for both members and non members. By completing the check up you be able to see the areas you need to focus on.   I invited him to complete the check up and then come back to me on the chat line to start planning his digital journey.

It then occurred to me that existing members may benefit from a few tips on how to use the Tribe.
