Although it’s your responsibility to fill it in in the best possible way, we will share our best practices to guidelines to make sure your experience page looks perfect.
- Name (Title): This will become the title of your experience. It’s one of the most important fields of your experience.
TIP! See our article about best practices on how to create an effective title for your experience.
N.B. We will reserve the right to modify your title in case it doesn’t match with our standard and guidelines We do so in your best interest. If you have questions, please contact us.
- Address: This represents the meeting point for your experience. Be careful with, otherwise your clients will not be to find you.

- Lat/Long: Use this field to fine tune your exact position.
TIP! Useful in case your meeting point is in the countryside and it cannot be properly located via the address.
- Cover image: This is the image that will be displayed by default on search engines or on our website gallery of experiences.
TIP! Use a eye catching image of your experience. something that convey the essence of what you are proposing, ex. in a workshop you may want to show visitors active and participating in the class.
- Gallery: we always recommend to add 4-10 images. use these pictures to show multiple aspect of your experience.
TIP! Think about what your visitor interests are and not yours.
TIP! Don’t show a nice bucket of flowers that you and your wife are very proud of if it doesn’t add any value to the core activity you are selling.
- Categories: you can choose more than one category to assign to your experience. We have an extensive list of categories and subcategories that will be used in our search engines to display your experiences to the right audience.
TIP! Don’t be tempted to select all thinking that you will appear more often. People who are searching for Food and Wine don’t appreciate to be suggested a guided tour in the wood.
- Preferences: Help your visitors to find you based on key characteristics of your experience. Here you can indicate the intensity level of the activity, whether it is best reachable by car or walking, if it is appropriate for families or not.
In this section you will explain the inside out of your experience. Visitors, after been convinced to look at your experience by your cover picture, will start reading more about you.
TIP! Be simple, use short sentences and clear. Avoid ambiguity and clarify your points. Don’t assume that your visitors know what you know.
- What will you do: explain the what. It’s more or less the agenda of your activity.
TIP! Start your sentence with a reminder to the key elements of the experience. Repeat the keywords you used in the title mentioning the what and where. It helps boosting your SEO ranking on search engines.
- What you can expect: explain how your visitors will feel during the activity (relaxed, thrilled etc…), what practical information they should be aware of (crowded, active, supported) and the outcome of your experience (what they learn or will remember).

TIP! It’s a good practice to be very explicit about drinks, food or snacks, access to paid services.
- Exclusions: see above. same best practices.
