Last week I told y’all about Vayable, my new favourite place to check out before going on a trip. One of the most intriguing things about Vayable, for me, is the MASSIVE side hustle potential it represents. It is also a brilliant way to market a tourism-friendly business. Let’s take a look at how you can easily end up with a fairly lucrative side-hustle through Vayable.
What do YOU like to do with your spare time, in your city or town?
Do you head to the Farmer’s Market every Saturday and know which vendors sell out first?
Guess what! That’s local, insider knowledge. It’s perfect to offer on Vayable.
You can share that and offer a curated tour of the market. See if you can get a vendor to throw in samples, just for your group, and start off with a nice beverage, included in your fee.
If you want to go all out, get reusable bags printed with a nice big, “I toured the Seaside Farmer’s Market with Anne of Sweet Market Tours.” Hand those out to your clients to use at the market for free advertising and as a memento. The more people who use them, the more likely you are to be able to get freebies for your future tour groups, from vendors.
Before you go all out, though, give it a try for a weekend or two. Worst case, you spend some extra time at the market on those days, best case, you cover your grocery purchases and then some!

There are some small details that can make a world of difference in the eyes of a client, like including transportation or pickup.

Free Credit to Use on Vayable
In the meantime, though, Vayable has a sweet deal for both you and me. If you create an account using any of the links in this post, they are going to give you a $10 credit toward a free tour, whenever you get around to taking one. Plus, because they’re great people, they’ll give me a $10 credit, too. Not too shabby, eh? Head on over and pop in your deets, you never know when you’ll come back to it in the future!
