... anywhere across the globe, at any time - with the assistance of a
(Your Tourism Business) Green On-line Guide

Give your existing and potentially new tourism trade partners access to everything they need to know about tourist services you offer with a digital product manual that covers your business from A to Z.

Give yourself a chance to do more and better business with much better informed trade partners, to enjoy massive savings in printing/distribution cost as well as in time input for marketing activities, and to gain recognition for environment-friendly business practices.

Investing in a digital product manual that serves as an On-line Guide of your entire tourism business is an important step in creating a win-win scenario!

For first impressions of our On-line Guides, please take a look at these examples - YOURS will reflect the corporate identity of YOUR business:
Sam's Giardino On-line Guide - about a guesthouse in Swakopmund
Sasendle On-line Guide - about a specialised 4x4 safari operator  

Whether yours is an accommodation, tour or activity operator, hunting safari, car rental or charter flight business in Namibia, it can benefit from your co-operation with trade partners worldwide through an On-line Guide @ Publishing a digital product manual to explain the ins & outs of your own services   

... is 1. meaningful, 2. easy, and 3. affordable:

1. It's MEANINGFUL to Co-operate @

 - This Namibia tourism portal is the RIGHT PLACE & ENVIRONMENT TO CO-OPERATE with your
   international clientele
of tour and wholesale operators, hunting safari outfitters and similar
   who will find all they want and need to know about Namibia in one place - right here!
   Good co-operation with your trade partners also entails providing them with up-to-date
   information that is readily accessible any time, whenever it is required

   No printed product manual can ever be as complete and current as a well planned and
   well maintained on-line one - and as cost-efficient as well as environmentally responsible!

   And wouldn't you just love it to be able to refer your trade partners to a central source of
   information ... instead of writing the umpteenth email in reply to the same question?
   Your on-line product manual can be as comprehensive and big as you like it to be.
   Or start off small and add to it over time.
   If done right, all you will ever have to do in future for presenting your business in the best
   possible light is to email the hyperlink of your On-line Guide to your clients.
   We will assist you in getting it right, we will make your product manual look great, and we
   will show you how to put it to the best possible use for actively promoting your business
   ... or do it for you, if you so prefer.

- is also the RIGHT PLACE & ENVIRONMENT TO MEET with new tourism
  trade contacts
who will appreciate finding all the ins & outs of your products and services
  explained in one place
  - Potential trade contacts will know about your On-line Guide through our newsletters;
  - They will find it easily because this website enjoys top ranking in all major search engines;
  - They can get to know your business via the Internet instead of having to visit trade shows.
  Imagine the savings YOU will enjoy when embarking on a marketing mission to grow your
  business with a Green On-line Guide at your side to assist you.

  We could list a dozen or so more meaningful uses of and good reasons for having a digital
  product manual @ but until you
contact us for discussing YOUR
  particular promotion requirements, we'd like to leave you with this bold statement:
Your Green On-line Guide can be your all-in-one marketing tool
  & information manual when dealing with your trade partners
Now that we covered the meaningful aspects of co-operating @,
please see below how the EASY & AFFORDABLE parts work:
