The Travel Side (B2C)
We are the wellness travel experts (10+ years of experience) - we help customers to find their perfect retreat based upon their actual criteria. No more endless searching on the internet & trailing through booking sites (and not being able to get advice from someone who's personally been on a ton of retreats!).
Booking a retreat is not like booking your average holiday or a 'book now' process. There's a lot of research that goes into the thought process and we help customers identify which retreats would suit them best through a series of questions - such as do they prefer the mountain or the beach? Are they looking for a more solo experience or wanting to meet new friends? How long are they willing to travel for (door to door)? To start off we ask them to fill in the tailor made form. We then continue the conversation one to one and send them a list of options based up their criteria. We also go that extra mile and help with their travel arrangements, look for flights and even organise a pre or post retreat stay in a hotel should they need to or wish to add that on to their trip.
We are looking to hire more wellness travel experts in the industry who can deal with these enquires and to also send more journalists & bloggers out to the retreats to experience them first hand & write a review!
Our vision is to create a Tripadvisor meets Airbnb style platform to help a person find, discover and book their perfect retreat.
We are looking for funding for the development and tech to build a new beautifully designed and high functioning and optimised website.
The Media Side (B2B)
We offer a commission and fee based ecommerce model for vendors (group leaders, organisers & teachers) who wish to advertise retreats on our platform.
We also offer bespoke advertising packages / media campaigns such as a ''retreat of the week'' feature, sharing the event across our blog, newsletter & social media platforms for added exposure across our network (30k+ users/subscribers).
We like to personally meet with our clients & experience their retreats directly, so that we can share that with our customers on our blog.
New Developments & areas of scaleability
1. Wellness Travel Shop
We've integrated an affiliate based wellness travel shop - listing products that customers would buy for their 'what to pack for a retreat' items.
We are currently leveraging on this by creating direct partnerships with brands, offering banner advertising and product links.
2. Sponsored Content Opportunities
We are registered with AWIN and have recently been approached by Jet2.com Holidays to create sponsored content on our website.
3. Venue Listings
We have recently added a new directory based business model for venue listings - for retreat venues to advertise their spaces towards teachers/group leaders looking for a property to host their retreats at.
3. The Find Your Perfect Club
Currently working on developing a subscription based wellness travel membership club.
