As a business owner, it’s in your nature to be competitive — especially when it comes to other similar businesses in the tour and activity industry. Sometimes it can benefit you to partner with other tour and activity operators who offer the same experiences around the globe. We take a look at how to build referrals through marketplace.
Are you wondering how this could benefit you? Here’s an example to consider. Perhaps you are a tour guide who takes your guests on local hikes throughout New Zealand. The travelers who book with you likely book hiking excursions around the world, utilizing other tour companies such as yours. When you connect and partner with these tour operators in the same niche sector, you can actually build a pool of referrals that helps you increase your bookings across new market segments.
