May 3, 2024

Arya, a young entrepreneur from Bali, along with his friends, runs Bali Boat Adventures. They offer unique trips to the most beautiful small islands around Bali, accessible only by boat. Tourists usually book trips for 3-4 days, experiencing attractions like the pink beach, flying foxes, Komodo dragons, and other stunning sites. After struggling with traditional review platforms, Arya decided to try TopTips’ Premium Plan. Here’s how it transformed their business.

Owner's Perspective

As the owner of Bali Boat Adventures, I was looking for a way to stand out and attract more tourists. While we were listed on TripAdvisor, the competition was fierce, and our bookings were stagnant. That's when I discovered TopTips and decided to give their Premium Plan a try.

Implementing TopTips Premium Plan

We started by signing up for the Premium Plan II, which included several key features tailored for accommodations and boats:

  • Check Accommodation / Boat Button

  • Videos up to 180 seconds

Creating Engaging Content

With the extended video duration of up to 180 seconds, I began creating detailed and captivating videos of our trips. These videos showcased the breathtaking landscapes, unique wildlife, and the fun, adventurous spirit of our tours. Each video was an immersive experience, allowing potential guests to see exactly what they would encounter on our trips.

One particular video, highlighting the journey to the pink beach and the encounter with Komodo dragons, received an overwhelming response. It garnered thousands of likes and positive comments from viewers who were captivated by the beauty and excitement of the adventure.

Guest Engagement and Feedback

Our passengers loved the idea of sharing their experiences through videos on TopTips. They enjoyed creating their own content, showcasing their favorite moments, and giving us five-star ratings as a thank you. This user-generated content not only provided authentic reviews but also significantly boosted our visibility on the platform.

One of our guests, Lisa, created a video of her entire journey, from setting sail to exploring the hidden beaches and spotting the Komodo dragons. Her video quickly gained popularity, attracting more viewers and potential customers. The genuine excitement and positive feedback from our guests helped build trust and credibility for Bali Boat Adventures.
