  • Becoming an affiliate
  • What is MondoExplorer?
    • MondoExplorer is a platform of travel information, which supports itself on 3 major pillars:
    •  1 ) A common proprietary back office system for all MondoExplorer sites, built on the premise
    • that any affiliate can use it directly from a web browser.
    •  2 ) Unique original content is developed by chosen affiliates who are connoisseurs:
    • “ mondoexplorers” are seasoned travel experts, local experts, who write TRUE travel advice
    • and experiences: 2.0 technology taken to the next level.
    •  3) All sites share image, structure, and content quality guidelines, so that clients get
    • the best of both worlds: access to local know-how in a recognizable, trusted way.
  • What is MondoExplorer? (cont. 2)
    • Network  MondoExplorer is a network of online travel guides for cities around the globe where each guide is operated by a local expert, or City Operator, who has access to inside information about a particular destination and is passionate about sharing their knowledge to curious travelers. Each City Operator creates and manages a city guide that offers comprehensive information about the particular city, including a hand-picked selection of its best hotels, restaurants, nightlife spots, events and all other specific venues, activities, or businesses that it offers. The fact that all of these city guides are under the same online network, MondoExplorer, means that every page and every piece of content that is added to the site by the City Operators boosts the entire network's visibility, helping the network as a whole to generate more traffic.  
    • Community  MondoExplorer is an online community of travel writers, city experts and connoisseurs who enjoy sharing their passion for travel by becoming City Operators and creating their own unique city guides. It is a closed community of investors and operators and is invitation only. MondoExplorers put special emphasis on selecting the appropriate people to contribute to the city guides in order to ensure that the information provided to customers and travelers is reliable and maintains MondoExplorer's high professional standards.  
  • What is MondoExplorer? (cont. 3)
    • Technology MondoExplorer has developed a new kind of content manager systems (CMS) that allow City Operators to manage all of their website content and features online so that they can exercise efficiency and creativity when creating their city guide. As a result of the CMS, it is very easy for City Operators to add and modify any and all content added to their city's website. For example, City Operators can easily and quickly upload photos, hotel and restaurant entries, or descriptions of their favorite spots. It is completely SEO-friendly and reliable, and, because of this, City Operators enjoy FULL CONTROL over their city's website.

  • City Operator Responsibilities
    • We look for City Operators who exhibit self-starting, entrepreneurial spirits since the business gets as big as each person's potential.The business operators have two important roles to manage: content and commercial development.
    • Content for the website:
    • Some city operators take pride in writing the exclusive, upscale information themselves and constantly include new original content that makes the guide special for travelers. In some cases, City Operators get creative by offering talented university students the opportunity to write about their favorite cities in return for course credit and a by-line on the city's website. We even know of a professor who includes it as a writing assignment for a class and chooses the best work, who then gets recommended to our site.
    • Once the site is populated with all important information, there is not much more you do with it aside from updates or creating new forms of revenue by adding tourism related tabs.
  • City Operators Responsibilities (cont)
    • We look for City Operators who exhibit self-starting, entrepreneurial spirits since the business gets as big as each person's potential.The business operators have two important roles to manage: content and commercial development.
    • Commercial Development:
    • City Operators are responsible for the negotiation of as many tourism products as possible, such as tours, restaurants, hotels, hunting trips, medical trips, ect. 
    • Hotels:  In the case that the hotels are not under contract directly with the City Operator, a commission assigned by international hotel operator (from1.5% to 5%) will be received for each reservation.Preferred spaces can be sold to venues for a small fee, this allows the business to have a more detail space, with more description, videos and pictures. Also, they can click "reserve" and be forwarded to their own reservation site or a form that goes directly to them.  
    • The same thing can be done with other venues, like attractions ,  restaurants, bars and nightlife, sports venues, theater , etc.
    • An important form of revenue is B2B negotiation with tour operators, and it is usual to negotiate commissions starting at 10% and up. In some cases, they just want to get the publicity with a banner on the site, which they pay a fixed price for.
    • Micro-sites:  The back office offers a good platform to sell micro-sites within www. mondoexplorer.com , For example, we are already under contract for a golf-related micro-site in Argentina. Another one is up for temporary apartments in New York, and other could include, medical trips, religious trips, school trips, graduation trips, etc. We encourage the City Operators to be as creative as possible and use the MondoExplorer backbone or back office as a solid but inexpensive way to generate business.
