What is a PTM Microtour?
To host a PTM Microtour is an opportunity to share your world and meet curious new people, and make money in the process. This can be done in three main ways: a Home Tour, a Business Tour, or a Walking Tour. You are also welcome to combine these types of tours for a more complete local experience. All tours are limited to an hour or less in duration, and must include a beverage. This can be a host favorite, even if it’s not produced locally.
As a guest on a PTM Microtour, you’ll be invited to taste the local experience in a way that conventional tourism can’t match. You’ll hear first-hand from the people whom live and do business in an area about life in that area. You’ll try a beverage they love, maybe at the very place where it’s produced. You’ll connect with the people, the area, and the stories, and get localized in a unique way, in an hour or less.
A Home Tour is an opportunity to invite a guest into your home for a beverage and some stories. They are there because they want to experience how people from your area live. What makes your home interesting? Show them around. How is it different from where they’re from? What’s something they might not know or expect or find in a travel brochure about life in your area? What do you love about your city or town?
A Home Tour is an opportunity to connect with people and places in an intimate way, sharing a drink with and hearing the stories of the people that live there.
A Business Tour is an opportunity to connect with customers, and give them an intimate behind the scenes experience that will inspire them about you and your brand on a personal level. It’s also an opportunity for presales, to offer discounts or other valuable incentives to build a relationship with your business. Even being listed on our platform is a free form of advertising and extra visibility for your business.
A Business Tour is an opportunity to get an insider perspective on an establishment you have been meaning to visit, or already love.
A Walking Tour is similar to a Home Tour, but outside the home. What are you passionate about in your area? What do you wish people knew more about, or just think would be really cool to show new people? Visit a monument and explain why it’s important to you. Share your world and your personal local perspective on a neighborhood or landmark. Take a walk and tell a funny or heart-warming story from your life in the place where it happened. Don’t forget to stop for a beverage, perhaps in coffee shop, along the way.
A Walking Tour is an opportunity to stretch your legs and take in a perspective on a place that might not otherwise be available to you.
Throughout the year, PTM will feature an artist in our Artist Series. This will be an opportunity for artists to showcase their work in collaboration with PTM branding in the form of PTM Merchandise available in our Merch Store, where we offer a variety of exciting items.
