“After the past 20 years in Regional Tourism, as an Adventure Tour owner/operator including 13 years as marketing initiative founder (52+ Things to do in Greater Port Macquarie), I have seen the fast-paced change of how operators get themselves found (or not!) through good and bad advertising means.”

BookitDoit would like to invite you to join the biggest drive to support Regional Australian Tourism ever seen.
Our mission For Operators –  to offer a low cost comprehensive directory and booking platform creating a level playing field so small business operators have just as much opportunity as the bigger operators to get found and booked.

Why is BookitDoit needed?

Anyone living and working in regional areas know we live in the best parts of Australia, away from the hustle and bustle and our great land is our backyard. We welcome visitors from all over and take pride in our offerings of amazing experiences, natural beauty and relaxed way of life.
In recent years we as operators are fortunate to have the internet as a way of being found and booked by people all over the country and the world. However regional areas, the best parts of Australia, are mostly over-looked by the major (foreign owned) booking platforms who focus most their offerings to the capital cities and a handful of regionals areas.
I myself have been through the process of pitching to international OTA’s and whilst they liked the idea of my horse riding adventures many just said they don’t sell into areas more than 1-2hrs from an international airport! That experience was the seed of my idea of BookitDoit, a 100% purely dedicated platform focussing on Regional Australian Tourism with affordable and realistic commission rates and membership fee.
Twelve years ago I founded a marketing initiative called ”52+ Things to do in Greater Port Macquarie” with a mission to create awareness of the abundance of things to do in my region and a level playing field for operators where everyone was promoted equally, from a one man band Kayak tour to the major tourist attractions. Everyone paid the same and everyone was promoted in the same way, leaving it up to the visitors and locals to find and choose what they wanted to do. Often you will find the big businesses affording the big ads and smaller operators the small ads or not being able to afford to advertise at all, at least across all the media.
BookitDoit just has two levels of membership, Free and $10 per week, just 10% commission for direct bookings and 15% for the digital itineraries.
After 20 great years as a tour operator now it’s time for me to take a backseat role to spend all my efforts in creating and promoting our wonderful regions across Australia for travellers to find, book and do your experiences, sample your delights, stay in your unique accommodations and enjoy the natural beauty that is Regional Australia!
Best Regards,

How does commission work – why pay it?

Commission is a fee for a service we provided for your business.

  • It takes the hassle out of marketing, promoting and advertising your business
  • It Introduces new business not previously had {we connect new customers to your business}
  • This gives you more time to focus on running your business {time = money}
  • “Can you afford to give away sales”? You may not think that you can afford commission with your current sales, but the way commission works is that it is directly linked to your sales so if your sales go up {which they will when you sell your experiences through a third party} you can afford it. This works the other way also if sales decrease so will your commission payment (because commission is only paid if you sell something) .
  • Commission gives you more avenues for sales and does not limit current sales of your business.
  • You can build a portion of the cost of commission into the sale price of your experience sold on BookitDoit e.g Sell an experience on BookitDoit that you don’t normally sell on your own website, provide “add-ons” that are low cost to you but build into your sale price at a good profit which absorbs the commission of the sale, you can get creative (ask us how?)
  • Commission sales will also likely lead to more non – commission sales as you will get more promotion through us marketing your experience, reviews and word of mouth of customers by the commission sales will mean a greater awareness of your business. And therefore more sales overall.
