How do you see the role of the Tour Guides in creating and strengthening Guiderr?
We recognize the importance of making you, the tour guides, our partners in creating Guiderr.
We are providing guides with more than an online address.
Besides the fact that our smart technology helps match you with clients that are searching for your unique culture and experience,
we are also giving you a platform to manage your business in one easy online location.
How do you decide which guides travelers will see?
Are smart technology matches the travelers with tour guides and/or itineraries that correspond to their unique requests.

What reviews can you give me as a guide to help me get clients?
We recommend creating a website that is professional, personal and (importantly!) dynamic.
A site that has a lot of dynamic information, which can be created by adding articles and new itineraries will not only look great,
but it will also present you as professional and dependable and will validate you as an expert in your field.
Search engines like Google will also more likely recognize your site as legitimate.
And will help our system to know you and will cross-referencing between your knowledge and expertise to the needs of travelers.

Do I need to pay to register as a Guide?
Gosh no! We wouldn’t expect that. You can register and create a website for free.
You can use your guiderr site as you would a regular website.
Why do I have to create itineraries in my profile? Isn't it enough to fill the basic data?
You don’t have to add itineraries. However, we highly recommend you do.
1. Itineraries provide clients with a showcase of your skills, ideas and unique qualities.
Anyone can create a profile, but not everyone is a professional tour guide with creative ideas and itineraries off the beaten track.
2. The more information we have about the better our system will get to know you and will cross-referencing between your knowledge and expertise to the needs of travelers.
3. The more materials you have the more online presence we can give you. Including social networking, SEO keywords, articles and other professional sites.
What is your vision business model?
We are testing a business model based on three stages.
The speed from which we advance from each stage depends on the success and adoption of Guiderr by tour guides and travelers alike.
Stage one will require us to charge a minimum commission from guides’ transactions with their clients.
We realize that you work hard to earn your income, which is why we are also working hard to keep these charges to a minimum.
We are committed to keeping this under 10%. With the projected increase in traffic and users to our site, we will move to stage two, which will see us acquiring revenue from other sources such as advertising.
This will allow us to lower the commission fees even more. Stage 3 will cement our partnership with you, the guides, by providing you with opportunities to earn commissions from products and services that your travelers decide to use,
such as flights, hotels and admission costs, through your Guiderr website.
