    So, you're thinking about becoming your own boss and starting a Tour Operator Business.
    I'm going to cover the four essentials you need to start thinking about now,
    and then when you're done, head over to the Checkfront blog to read our complete
    step by step guide.
    First thing's first. It's pretty likely that you're going to be talking about this tour all
    day, every day, so it has to be about something that you love.
    If you love the outdoors, go and explore the best hiking or kayaking trails.
    Or if you just can't get enough of your city, plan a walking tour with
    unique stops like the best taco truck in town. The opportunities
    are endless, so make a list of your interests and what your location has
    to offer, and start diving in. Go, and make connections,
    find out if there's high competition in the area. If the markets saturated, it's
    still possible, but you're going to have to go the extra mile to really make a dent.
    Next, design your tour. This is the really fun
    stuff and probably why you wanted to start this venture to begin with.
    Not only plan your resources and route, but think about unique
    things that you can add to the tour. Make sure you have plenty of
    great photo opportunities. And not just landscape or architecture,
    but think about unique things that you can add, like maybe a random
    graffiti wall or a colourful staircase.
    Now let's talk about your name. This could be the easiest, or the hardest
    part, but the one piece of advice that I have to give you is make sure
    your name is easy to pronounce and unique. Having a unique name
    will make it easy for people to find you when they search for you online.
    You could even consider combining two words. Take us for an example.
    'Check' and 'front' are both two pretty common names, but when
    combined it creates something unique and it really helps cut through the noise
    when people search for us online.
    With a name set, it's time to create your business plan. This includes your
    Company Description, Market Analysis, Partnership
    Opportunities, Marketing Plan, and a Financial Forecase.
    That's a lot of planning, but you've got this. For your next steps
    keep on reading. Thanks for watching!
