You’ve created an amazing experience for your guests, but not enough people know about it. You’re confused about where to spend your time. Between social media, emailing, writing blogs, paying an SEO company — there are so many different things you could be doing. But even once you choose an area to work on, how do you know it’s having an impact?
There are more than enough shared resources online, but it would be amazing to know exactly what to do for your tour. Would you sell more tickets if you had someone to review your task list, ensure you are being productive, and help you find the areas which will have the biggest impact? Whether that’s helping to increase visibility online, getting more corporate events, or even just understanding where to find new guests.
Over the course of six weeks, we'll meet on video chat 11am CST every Wednesday. Each course is a combination of teaching, answering your questions, and reviewing live websites together. All sessions will be recorded and available online if you are unable to attend. Office hours are 1hr video chat times that do not have an agenda. They will be available as Q&A time to answer any questions you might have.
Learn to use Joe's 6-week cycle system. Plan your tasks and time available each week using his unique setup.
People don’t buy your tour because it logically makes sense - they buy based on emotion. This week we’ll look at some of the ways to use emotion to help sell more tickets.
What you say on your site is more important than how it looks. During this week we’ll examine site content. You’ll also learn the 2 words to change on your site that could show a 20% increase in revenue.
We’ll look at a private tour sales process and find ways to adjust your sales process. We’ll discuss the use of landing pages and online systems to make it easier on you.
From system emails to lead magnets to your monthly newsletter. You’ll get my templates for planning newsletter campaigns, what to write in confirmation emails, and a guideline for creating a website lead magnet.
Now that we’ve improved your website to sell more tickets, refined your private tour process, and created effective email campaigns — we’re ready to drive more traffic to your site. If we drive traffic before addressing those items you could be wasting a lot of money.
You'll be paired with other tour operators to meet on video chat. Groups will consist of 3-5 people to help you further implement the items covered in the masterclass.
The next cycle begins Mon, Jul 15th and ends on Fri, Aug 23rd.

A lot! One of the great things about 6-week cycles is the ability to move at a pace that works with your availability.
Absolutely not! Now is the best time. We're not rebuilding your marketing, we're improving what you already have. And if we can start improving now, we can increase the number of tickets you sell this summer.
I am not. BUT! If there is something I don't know, I will use my resources to find out.
1hr per week to attend the live video chat, or to watch the video recap. There will also be some homework that could take a couple hours some weeks. However, I'm also going to encourage you every week make time to plan for the week using the 6-Week Cycles system.
You'll get video replays of any session, I'll also be offering office hours. Office hours are 1hr chunks of time that will allow us to connect and answer any questions you have. These times will be variable based on the location of attendees. If you're not in North or South America, I will do my best to allow for office hours that work with your timezone.
Even once we complete the six weeks, you'll still have access to all recordings and templates to work through when you have time.
It is. The items we'll be covering are core to all levels as it focuses on task/priority management and foundational marketing principles.
I combined productivity techniques with marketing, sales, and user experience. Getting a strategy in place is a small part of the work. Knowing what to work on and following up to make sure it was completed is how we make the most out of our time together.
Over the six weeks you’ll acquire stronger skills in time management using a framework I developed with my team over the last 3 years. It’s the same framework from my book, 6-Week Cycles, centered around a stronger work/life balance through planning, visualization, and results-oriented goal setting.
These courses are only being offered one cycle at a time. There is no guarantee that future Masterclasses will be offered with the same focus on productivity and marketing at the current price.
