Let Me Promote Your Company’s Bike Tours!
I make it easy for you to find new customers.
One of the most important aspects of running a successful bike tour company is finding new customers. But finding new customers isn’t easy!
What you need is a way to quickly and easily reach a large group of people who have already expressed some interest in participating in a guided or self-guided bike tour… and then you need to convince those people to spend their time and money participating in your unique bicycle tour.
Lucky for you, you’ve just stumbled across one of the largest and most passionate bicycle touring groups in the world!
Hello, my name is Darren Alff and I am the Bicycle Touring Pro.
For the last 10+ years I’ve been teaching people from all around the world how to conduct their own amazing bike tours and sharing the best bicycle touring destinations on the planet with my passionate followers from across the globe.
I teach by doing… and over the years I’ve built up a name for myself as the leading expert on bicycle touring – having cycled across more than 70 different countries all around the world, writing 4 how-to books on bicycle touring, producing my own bike tour videos, hosting my own bike tour podcast, and becoming incredibly influential in the process. I have so many people following my travels and advice now that If I go bicycle touring somewhere in the world, my readers follow!
Over the last 10 years I’ve worked with dozens of different bike tour companies from all around the world… and I’d love to work with you as well.
After you visited us in 2015, took beautiful pictures and videos, and wrote so well about our company, most of our customers have seen your blog. In fact, that is the main reason for most of them to join “The Fjord Cycling Route” bike tour. And more than 50% of our visitors have been from the United States – flying over to Bergen (Norway). We have doubled our number of visitors every year. Thanks a lot for all you have done for our business. It was great meeting you.

I’ve put this page together so you can see some of the marketing and promotion services I provide. Please read this entire page and then contact me directly to let me know how you think we can best work together in the future.
I’ve worked with dozens of bike tour companies all around the world
It’s true! Over the past 10+ years I have worked with dozens of different bicycle touring companies from all around the world.
Just take a look at this page: http://bicycletouringpro.com/bike-tours/ These are just a few of the bike tour companies I’ve worked with in the past to market and promote both their company and their tours.
On this page you’ll also see a large world map with clickable icons. This world map is an incredibly popular feature on my website and my Bicycle Touring Pro readers refer to this page over and over again when they are looking for a good organized bike tour to participate in.
Searching for an organized bike tour has never been easier! Simply click where you can to do in the world, search for any available bike tours, read my professional review of that tour, and then sign-up to participate in the tour yourself. My readers love it!
One of the best things you can do as a bicycle touring company to get more customers for your bike tours is to get your company listed on this page! Keep reading to find out how you can get your company and your bike tours listed on the world map and on my recommended bike tours page.
Would you like to have me promote your company?
There are three main ways I work with companies like yours to market and promote both your company and the bike tours you provide:
Simple Tour Listing
This is the fastest and easiest way to get your company in front of my readers. A small annual fee gets you listed on my recommended bike tours page. You’re company will be featured on the world map and given a photo/description listing on this same page. You can list as many of your company’s bike tours as you please, or you can create a single listing for your entire company.
The cost to promote your company with a simple tour listing on BicycleTouringPro.com is only $995 USD per listing/per year.
Featured Guest Posts
If you want to get a lot more coverage for your company, consider writing a featured guest post or article on www.bicycletouringpro.com. This is where YOU write an article for Bicycle Touring Pro about your company and one or more of the bike tours that you offer… and then I post it as an independent article on the Bicycle Touring Pro website. I also market and promote this article to my readers via social media, my email newsletter and via my regular search engine channels.
The main advantage to this type of marketing is that you can really take the time to explain what makes your company/bike tours unique. In addition, you can add photos, show videos, include testimonials, or whatever you want in your article.
The biggest advantage to creating a featured guest post on BicycleTouringPro.com is that the article you produce will remain on the website FOREVER. It will never be taken down and it will continue to bring you traffic and sales for years to come.
A featured guest post with BicycleTouringPro.com costs $2,995 USD per article. Please note that there will be a small disclaimer at the bottom of the article stating that it is a paid guest post.
Have The Pro Join Your Bike Tour
If you have a company that provides guided or self-guided bicycle tours and you’d like to have your business featured on the BicycleTouringPro.com website in the most amazing way possible, then you’re going to want to have me (the Bicycle Touring Pro) join you on one of your future bicycle tours.
I understand that there a number of different ways to market and promote a bicycle touring company, but what I’ve discovered over the last 10+ years is that one of the best ways to promote a company like yours is to have me actually participate in one of your bicycle tours and produce a whole series of photos and videos from the excursion, which I then share with my 1+ million annual readers on BicycleTouringPro.com, as well as on my popular YouTube channel, and through my various social media accounts.
In exchange for you letting me join one of your upcoming bicycle tours, I will provide you with the following:
Marketing & Promotion From Now Until The Start of the Bike Tour
As soon as we reach an agreement, I will begin marketing and promoting your company and your bike tours to my readers. I have 1,000,000+ annual website visitors, 20,000+ email newsletter subscribers, and hundreds of thousands of followers on my various social media channels (Facebook, YouTube, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, Pinterest, etc).
I will tell my followers about my plans to particulate in your bike tour and then ask them to join me on the tour themselves. This is one of the quickest and easiest ways for you to get sign-ups for your bike tours, as many of my followers either want to go bicycle touring with me personally or don’t want to go bicycle touring on their own. Something I’ve learned over the years is that if I go bicycle touring somewhere in the world, my readers will follow me!
I can’t guarantee how many tour sign-ups you will receive from my Bicycle Touring Pro followers, but I will do everything I can to encourage tour sign-ups over the months leading up to our scheduled bike tour together.
A Featured Tour Review On BicycleTouringPro.com
You will receive a featured review of your bike tour on my website at BicycleTouringPro.com. This review will consist of a full written article with photos from the tour. The review would be very similar to the ones I did here for the following companies:
- Bike Switzerland – Challenge Tour
- African Bikers – Garden Route Mountain Biking Tour
- Rad & Reisen – Boat & Bike Tour on the Rhine River
- City Bike Ltd. – Latvia and Estonia by Bicycle
- Berg Fritid – The Fjord Cycling Route
The review I write will be posted to the BicycleTouringPro.com website as part of the site’s regular content feed; promoted on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat and Pinterest; and will remain on the Bicycle Touring Pro website forever (which will bring you a large amount of website traffic and signups for years to come).
This is not just a one-time thing! The work I do to promote your company and your bike tours this year will continue to drive sales to your company for years and years to come!
Professional Photos From Your Bicycle Tour
During the bike tour I will take hundreds of photos using my Canon DLSR camera. After the tour is over I will provide you with copies of all the best photos that I took, which you can then use on your website, in your future marketing, or in whatever way you wish.
You could pay a professional photographer thousands of dollars to take these types of photos for your company, but you’ll get these great photos from me as a part of this arrangement.
High Definition Video + Aerial Drone Footage
Video is huge right now! – Which is why, during the bike tour, I will shoot one new video for each day of the tour and provide you with a copy of all the video files I produce at the end of the tour, which you can then use in the future to market and promote your bicycle tours.
I will use the video files I shoot on the bike tour to create several short videos for Bicycle Touring Pro’s Youtube channel (which currently has about 50,000 subscribers). The videos I make are extremely popular and are a great way to market and promote your bike tours in the future!
Plus, I will bring my DJI drone with me on the bike tour to produce some incredible aerial footage (so long as it is legal in your country at the time of the tour). The drone footage I’ve published in the past is among some of the favorite things my followers like to see when they are watching my videos. Plus, my drone footage is a great way to show off the landscapes your customers will be traveling through… and it’s a great way to drive sign-ups for your future bicycle tours.
Use Of My Name, Image & Testimonial
Finally, I will give you the right to use my name, image, and testimonial in any ads and/or marketing materials that you might wish to produce over the next six months. Imagine telling people that “The Bicycle Touring Pro” will be joining you on one of your bicycle tours!
Even though most of bike tours are only about one week in length, the work involved in marketing your company, asking my readers to join me on your bicycle tour, following up with any questions I receive from my readers, photographing and videotaping the entire bike tour, editing all the photos and video from the tour, and then writing and promoting my finished bike tour review will take me approximately 3 weeks to complete. This is no easy task and I take great pride in the work that I do.
This is why, normally, everything I’ve laid out here would cost approximately:
- Marketing & Promotion of your company and bike tours – $2,995 USD
- Featured bike tour review on BicycleTouringPro.com – $2,995 USD
- Professional photos from your tour – $2,995 USD
- High Definition videos + drone footage from your bike tour – $5,995 USD
- The use of my name, image, and testimonial for marketing purposes – $7,500 USD
That’s more than $22,480 USD of marketing, promotion and professional photography/video work. But I won’t be charging you that much for partnering with me on this project.
Instead, I simply want you to provide me with:
- A $7,995 USD fee to cover my transportation to and from the start of your bike tour + the work I will be doing to promote your company over the following months, take photos, shoot video, write your tour review, etc.
- Free participation in one or more of your multi-day bike tours. This would include covering the cost of the tour itself, lodging, food, bike rental (if you want me to ride one of your bikes – otherwise I can bring my own bicycle) and any other extra expenses that might come up during the tour.
Cost Saving Opportunity: Many of the tour companies I’ve worked with in the past have been able to obtain FREE food and lodging for me by simply requesting it from their food and accommodation partners (as I will be photographing, videotaping, and reviewing the food and lodging on the tour as well). This strategy, if successful, greatly reduces the overall cost involved with having me participate in your bike tour.
For most tour companies I’ve worked with in the past, if I can get them just 1 to 3 signs-ups, they will get back all of the money I am asking for my services. Which, if you look at it that way, makes my small fee incredibly reasonable! – Especially since the services I will be providing to you are worth far more than what I’m asking.
