We recently did a review of our membership packages and made some changes based on consumer demand and the increasing popularity of our GeoTour Creator. We found that GeoTour is used in two different ways; Sharing and Promotion.
We discovered that some members just built a tour or two to share with friends and family or to try the product out. These members also downloaded tours to their GPS device for their own enjoyment. So we classified this group of people as enthusiasts, users who love the cool concept of GPS tour creation.
We also found that we have some members who use GeoTour to promote a destination by selling a GPS tour or offering it as a free value to an existing product or offer. We called these people experts since they are more focused on a business model for marketing their tours.
So we were faced with accommodating two different groups with a functional product that would suit specific purposes. We did not want to create two separate products so we decided to categorize features of the product based on a tiered membership.
The new memberships allow an inexpensive point of entry for enthusiasts with the Lite and Plus memberships. And the Pro and Premier memberships provide a bridge into a more profitable business model to be used by entrepreneurs and destination marketing experts.
Here is a quick breakdown of the new memberships along with links to more details
