As a Tattle Host, you want to create the best possible experience, impress your guests, and get better ratings and reviews from them – because that’s what will make you stand out. Here’s some ways to do that …
Top 6 Tips and Tricks
6. Give your guests extra information
During the experience, give your guests additional information about the area that they can use on their own. Chances are that the end of the experience may not be the end of the guests’ day, and as such they will be looking for more things to do – especially around the area where the experience itself ends. It could also be a great chance to learn more about your guest (as you can ask personal questions about things like food preference or favourite activities) and form a better connection with them through casual, but helpful, conversation.
5. Offer early discounts
Reviews are important in the decision-making process for potential guests. People want to know they’re getting the best experience possible, and often their only way of identifying that is to read the opinions of those who did the experience before them. So if you’re just starting out – consider discounting your price until you have a solid number of positive reviews. You won’t make as much in the early going, but in the long term, good reviews will improve your chances of getting bookings and make you even more money!
4. Under-promise and over-deliver
This is an easy trick – when you write the description for your experience, it sets expectations for your guests. If you surprise them by going above and beyond, people will walk away feeling like they got much more value for their money – leading to more favourable reviews!
3. Do something unique with your experience.
The top performing experiences across all platforms all have one similar aspect – you can’t find someone else doing things the same way. Whether that comes from your passion and experience in the subject or simply the execution of the experience, it’s important to do some research into similar experiences in your city to find what you can bring to the table that they don’t!
2. Tailor your description for your audience
If you’ve ever applied for a job, you know how this works. You want to think about the kind of person you’d like to have go on your experience. For example – If you’re trying to market a photo tour to creative people, you could write your description in a more casual, free-flowing tone to appeal to their sensibilities. This also applies to languages – if you can speak Japanese and want to target tourists from Japan, you could write part of your description in Japanese.
1. Be yourself.
When someone books a Tattle experience, they don’t just do it for the activities – they want a host that they can relate with and enjoy spending their time with. Let your personality shine through on your written content so that the guest can easily get a glimpse of what you’re like by reading it. After all, this is your experience – and you are the key that unlocks the door to a whole new perspective.
