Take Foreigners On a Journey in SA with Voicemap

South Africa is a popular tourist destination. Over 16 million foreign tourists visited our country in 2017. Moreover, analysts say this number will grow to 19.5 million in five next years.

This business idea is about making money with a small portable app called VoiceMap that is helping tourists have more fun while traveling to another country.

What is Voicemap?

Voicemap is an amazing app for travelers that was created in South Africa. With it, a journey becomes more than just a list of destinations.

Basically, you’re listening to a storyteller while following the route.

How to Make Money With VoiceMap?

Making money with VoiceMap is quite interesting. Would you like to get paid for walking and telling? Well, with VoiceMap it’s possible!

Here is how it works:

Go to a VoiceMap website and make a tour. Just click “Create”:

voicemap create

You’ll be invited to create a VoiceMap audiotour.

Type the name (the more attractive, the better), your city or region, price and mode of transport needed to take it:

voicemap audiotour

As you see, this business idea is about creating a passive income stream. You create a tour, upload it to VoiceMap and get paid everytime someone purchases it and have fun travelling according to your instructions. VoiceMap will take care of tracking your customer’s location using GPS.

Most visited cities in South Africa

It’s quite obvious that the more tourists visit a certain city, the more chances you have to sell your audiotour. Here are the most visited cities in South Africa:

  • Johannesburg, Gauteng;
  • Cape Town, Western Cape;
  • Durban, KwaZulu-Natal;
  • Pretoria, Gauteng;
  • Port Elizabeth, Eastern Cape.
Tip

It’s highly recommended that you create only quality tours, personally visit all places, and script your audios before you hit the “Record” button.

If you visit a crowded place, purchase a lavalier microphone for your smarthpone. Here are some of the most popular ones:

  • Rode Smartlav +;
  • Shure MVL;
  • Boya BY-M1.
Go global!

In case you travel a lot and decide to create tours for other cities and countries, here is the list of most popular tourist destinations in the world:

  • Bangkok, Thailand;
