What is Guide Turbo?
Guide Turbo is a mobile app and website that helps guides manage their business and makes it easy for clients to find a guide. We are former guides, so we tried to build a platform that was practical for guides. What could be more practical than FREE?!
Guide Turbo is completely free!! Guide Turbo doesn't charge a fee or take a percentage for anything. If you're a guide, we know you're skeptical about this and might think that Guide Turbo seems too good to be true. Nope! We know how hard you work for your money. Guide Turbo's revenue comes from advertising. It's that simple.
Guide Turbo is here to change the guiding industry. Here is what Guide Turbo provides:
We designed our calendar to make it suitable for everyone (and that was not an easy task!), from the single fly fishing guide to the whitewater rafting company. A guide/instructor or outfitter can run their business from their computer or mobile device. We've packed Guide Turbo with practical features to help guides manage their business calendar.
Let's face it, having an online presence is more important than ever. Guide Turbo provides that presence for guides, instructors and outfitters to showcase their passions. Guide Turbo is great for the guide that does one activity in the winter and another activity during the summer. Guides build their profiles to highlight what they do and allow their clients to stay current with them. Guides can also recommend/endorse other guides, instructors or outfitters that will provide a great experience.
Guide Turbo's revenue is generated from advertising. It is in Guide Turbo's best interest to get as much traffic coming to Guide Turbo as possible. Guide Turbo will be leading a marketing and PR campaign to increase the flow of traffic to Guide Turbo, which means new clients looking for new guides and activities. Guide Turbo will continue a social media campaign to highlight guides. Invite us on an adventure! We will highlight you through social media and our blog.
If you charge $100 for a trip or class, you will get $100!! PayPal charges a 3% processing fee. The client pays $103. That's it. We don't take a cut of anything, and we don't take a % of the transaction. We have no hidden costs! Reservation software charges from 6% all the way to 20%. We just think we can do better.

Guide Turbo wants to provide a platform for clients to find all the cool things to do on their vacations, or right in their home town. On Guide Turbo, they can read the guides' description and read reviews. Planning vacation days shouldn't be difficult. We want to make it fun for clients to plan their vacation days with their friends and family. We want clients to be able to come back and take a trip with the same guides again and again. The first step is to download the iOS (IOS) or (Google) app.
Our platform is great for guides and great for clients. That means it's great for advertisers. Advertisers can reach both clients and guides in one space. Guide Turbo offers a platform that allows advertisers to reach specific demographics based on what activities they are searching for. If you are interested in advertising on Guide Turbo contact us.
