I'm Glenn from Helping Hand Global.
I know that advertising, promoting and hiring staff can become very costly for a small business, especially a fledgling hostel. Well because I'm a travel lover, I am creating a platform as an alternative that can save you thousands and will make you feel good while doing it! And quite simply it's by using enthusiastic volunteers.
Every year millions of budget travelers and backpackers spend countless hours trying to find a way to stretch their budget during their treks around the globe. What if in exchange for a few hours of volunteering at YOUR hostel a day, you simply offer that traveler free accommodation and maybe some food in return? I promise many travelers would JUMP at that opportunity.
You would be able to potentially save thousands of dollars like I said and simultaneously help out someone else in need.
My new organization, Helping Hand Global, is currently building a platform that can connect you the host directly with potential volunteers. Two questions you might have may be...
Q. - Will I be charged?
A. - As a host you will never be charged for using the platform. Any expense will occur on the traveler's side.
Q. - How can I trust that the volunteer will honor his/her agreement?
A. - Volunteers will have profiles as well where you can view their credentials and previous host reviews. The platform will have an easy to use messaging and application system allowing clear communication of your expectations and theirs. We also charge volunteers a fair fee when an exchange is confirmed. This will help ensure they are sincere in their desire of the exchange.
If this is something that might interest you please IM me directly, comment here or email me at either [email protected] or [email protected]
I will then add you to the waiting list and give you updates on the progress of the website.
The first 500 hosts who declare interest will receive a featured host status on their profile once the website launches.
Thank you for your time and consideration!
