285 – Promote Yourself as a Destination Expert on Hearplanet

Podcast Number 285


Steven Echtman joins the show to talk about Hearplanet. Hearplanet is a personal tour guide in your pocket. Actually it’s a sophisticated app for your iPhone or Android powered smart phone. Geolocation along with powerful search features will lead you on a discovery of what’s around you, or what’s interesting at a destination your traveling to. There are currently over 500,000 audio files for locations around the world.

The benefit for the travel agent is that you can create audio files for locations you’re familiar with and add them to Hearplanet. A listener of your audio file can contact you directly from within the app. You become a destination expert on Hearplanet and listeners can contact you to book their next trip.

Steven Echtman is offering listeners to the Home Based Travel Agent Show a coupon code to obtain the premium version of the app for free. This offer is available to the first three listeners who sign up for an account on the website and create a listing. Send an email to contact@hearplanet.com when you create a listing and let Steve know that you are a listener of this show and you have created a listing. A listing may be an event as well as a destination.
