How can I monetize a tourism information center to create a profitable business?
Hello business experts, can anyone help me to know how I can run a tourism information center as a profitable business occupation in my homeland? It's been a challenge for me to figure out how I can monetize/charge tourists who visit my center for information.
Hello Samwel, it looks like you are new to this industry. Have you considered hiring a professional who has vast experience in the tourism industry to work for you? We believe that the boss doesn't have to be capable of doing all things but should focus on what they are good at, and hire the right people to run and grow the venture.
We'd be interested in discussing a partnership with you.
As you are running a tourism information center, you may have a website. For monetizing your business, you can collect sponsored ads from travel agencies, hotels, resorts, airlines, etc. There are many airlines offering affiliate programs. You can apply for affiliation. After getting approval you will get a link. You have to market that link. You will get a commission for each sale on that link. You can offer a tour operation also.
If you give tourist info about good hotel then create partnership with good hotel, take a commission in exchange for sending tourists. This applies for other info you give.
