      Hotels and restaurants that have been shuttered for a year are starting to open! Jump on this restart of tourism by learning about a new way to give tours.

      Act quickly and sign up for this virtual demonstration taking place MONDAY, APRIL 12 at 7:00 p.m. and led by CTPA Certified Guide Kelly Kniewel.  It should last less than an hour and could pay future dividends to you!

      There is a lot of talk these days about “revenge” tourism and pent-up consumer desire to explore new things after months of quarantines and limited interactions for over a year.


      Do you give a unique tour of Chicago?


      Maybe a tour of an outlying neighborhood or a themed tour of some kind?


      Would you like to have an on-line tour on demand that could earn you income without having to show up?


      Would you like an opportunity to show off your personality and knowledge about Chicago that might reach new audiences and point consumers to your website and/or your in-person tours?


      If you have a little time on your hands, the eAtlas platform is paying content creators to launch their first and second tour if they do so by 4/21/21. $125 for the first tour and $100 for the second tour approved by 5/28/21. This is all part of a push prior to consumer promotions on social media, tourism entities and possibly public TV.


      You already know Chicago facts. The next step might be less time consuming and easier than you think. One Chicago guide took about 6 hours to put together a 10-stop virtual tour, incorporating facts, photos, and stories. You can even enhance the tour with video or audio clips, along with or instead of photos.


      The eAtlas platform software is intuitive and easy to use. Demos and tutorials are available.


      When people take your tour, eAtlas takes a portion that is used to help continue to market and develop the software, and the rest is sent to your bank account​or via check, your preference. Weekly.


      Don’t delay because for just a few weeks longer, eAtlas will actually pay you to add your tour to their APP!
