At GoBicycleTouring, our mission is simple: we connect individuals who are actively looking for guided and self-guided bicycle tours to participate in with the best bicycle touring companies in the world.
But how exactly do we do that?
In this article you will learn about the three most basic ways we deliver new customer leads to the bike tour companies we work with.
First of all, the website at GoBicycleTouring.com allows people from all around the world to search for their ideal bicycle tour by location, price, difficulty, average daily distance and total tour distance.
After searching through the related tour listings, an individual may wish to learn more about a particular bike tour and will click the orange “Request More Information” button that appears at the bottom of that individual tour description.
When the individual clicks that button, a form pops up that says:
The person then enters their name, address, phone number and email address and clicks the “Please Contact Me” button once complete.
Once they’ve done this, the contact details they just entered are automatically sent to the appropriate tour company via email in a message that looks like this:
Once you receive this HOT LEAD email, you can then follow up with this individual (by email, phone, or by mailing them some additional information about the specified bike tour) and begin working to immediately convert this interested individual into a paying customer.
Another way that GoBicycleTouring works to send you leads for your bike touring business is through our sister-site at BicycleTouringPro.com.
Every single day, readers at BicycleTouringPro.com fill out a long and detailed survey that asks them all sorts of bicycle touring related questions. Questions like: How did you first learn about bicycle touring? Have you ever been on a bicycle tour before? What is your biggest fear about traveling by bike? Etc.
One of the questions in this survey asks, “If you could conduct a bicycle tour in any country in the world, where would it be?”
The person then has the choice of choosing any country in the world from a simple drop-down list.
Let’s imagine for a moment that the individual filling out the survey says that their ideal bicycle tour would be in “Iceland.”
Later in that same survey, the individual is given a choice:
“Check the box below if you would like for a tour company in the country you indicated as your ideal bicycle touring destination to contact you about future bike tours in that area.”
If the individual leaves this box unchecked, nothing happens. The survey is completed and that’s the end of it.
But if the person checks the box that says “Yes, please contact me,” that survey has now become a new lead source for GoBicycleTouring and that person’s contact details are forwarded to the bike tour company that best fits that individual’s wants and desires in a guided or self-guided bicycle tour.
Finally, we collect leads from people who contact us via email from both the website at BicycleTouringPro.com and here at GoBicycleTouring.com (and from our affiliated social media websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, etc).
Quite frequently we will get an email that says something like this:
“Hello, I’m looking to conduct a bicycle tour in Iceland. Do you know of a good company in Iceland that you can recommend to us?”
When we get these emails, we simply refer to the bike tour companies listed on GoBicycleTouring.com and forward these emails straight to the bike tour companies that we work with.
Here’s an example of a recent email we received. The name and contact info has been blurred out for privacy purposes:
After receiving this email, I simply looked at the database of bike tour companies we have at GoBicycleTouring and saw that we are currently working with a fantastic bike tour company in Thailand. So I forwarded the email to Dave, the company owner.
Dave wrote me back a day later and said:
And that is how GoBicycleTouring brings new customer leads to bike tour companies all around the world.
