Christine Hughey’s started her Downtown Nashville food tour, A Little Local Flavor, with the goal to put at least $1million dollars back into locally owned businesses (with a $0 ad budget and 136 other tour companies in the city).
So she decided what would be most important to her to stand out— extremely high-quality service.
Pre-pandemic they were rated 5 out of 152 tour companies in Nashville. And in August of 2020 on TripAdvisor, they ranked in the top 10% of attractions worldwide.
She accomplished this all with word of mouth, five-star reviews, and a five-star experience.
In today’s episode, we are talking about the little things in your business.
How they add up, why they matter in your business, and steps you can take to earn those raving reviews.
And specifically, how your street cred can carry you through any difficult season in your business—even a pandemic.
