The trend that is slowly happening across the country is entrepreneurs hosting national tours as an extension of their business. Also to reach a wider audience on a deeper level and solidify their brand as the top in their particular industry.
But what if you want to host a national tour and can’t figure out how to get it out there to your target market despite having the information?
The answer to that question is to not just attend others but to work behind the scenes if possible. There are many opportunities for you to learn if you do some research.
Here are 3 reasons why volunteering at a similar tour will help you:
1) You get ideas on how to structure your tour. If you never hosted a tour let alone an event then you may feel overwhelmed by the priority of what to do first and how it should flow. As a volunteer you see the hectic behind the scenes workings. As you watch what’s happening you should take notes. Especially on what not to do.
2) You get a first row seat to see how your target audience reacts to that tour. As you observe the audience’s reaction to how things are not only ran but the content shared, you should get a sense of what they expect and what they can live without.
3) You get to practice without investing your own money. As you volunteer, observe and participate you should have your tour outline streaming in your mind. Imagine where you are is your tour. You can catch the mishaps and dead spots before you spend money.
As you look for tours you can be a part of remember you’re not just there getting a tour planning crash course but you’re there to be of assistance. You never know if volunteering at another tour can help your tour have a running start to make a huge impact.
