Happy New Year, followers and friends. It's been a great (but busy) holiday season for our team, as we completed the Guidrr iOS app soft launch and testing - all the while keeping a limited-time free holiday promotion live so that more people could experience the peer-to-peer knowledge of our awesome creator community. Some killer stuff (pun intended) also happened when right after our Product Hunt shout-out, we were also featured on KillerStartups.com.
Today, after a two-week holiday thank you period, we turn back on creator pricing, to fulfill our goal to help influencers benefit directly from sharing their hard-earned travel knowledge. We take seriously this #TravelTuesday J.RR Tolkein quote shared on the page of someone we follow online - Matthew @HimelandStein:
As a startup seeking to change the way online travel influencers benefit from and interact with the world's largest industry, we know our big vision will happen little by little. We are already seeing some exciting success and traction. Our goal with Guidrr's #NewTravel platform is to directly reward peer travel influencers for their knowledge and inspiration. To further this, we're already focusing on some important enhancements to our powerful platform for on-demand experiences and partner app (which will release version 1.30 shortly).
So what's new? Starting this month, creators can not only continue to create and share step-by-step experiences that combine their own photography, content and tags anywhere in the world to followers via a mobile app, they also can leverage our our special deep-linking process to directly share specific created experiences to social following, or directly market their entire Guidrr channel to targeted audiences and gain insights from the conversion of their followers to engaged users and buyers. For something that doesn't cost approved creators a dime upfront that's pretty powerful stuff, in our humble opinion!
Guidrr is designed to be a more powerful way for online travel influencers to engage in mobile story telling and the result is deeper engagement & reach. It's available to approved creators as part of our free, application-only program.
So, here's to doing big things, little by little.
And here's to NewTravel!
