Flinja Success Story – Student Guided Tours
So simple and effective, Flinja is the only place I recommend to my friends on campus.
Courtney, a student at UCLA, talks about her experience using Flinja to really boost her summer tour guide business.
I am a campus tour guide, and during the summer months I also run my own tour guide business in Los Angeles. Nothing has been more thrilling than seeing how my business has expanded since joining Flinja.
After working my first year at UCLA as a campus tour guide, I decided to start my own local tour guide business to show students and tourists around LA.
I loved the flexibility of being able to make my own hours, but getting consistent work was harder than I had imagined – there were weeks when my tour calendar was completely empty.
Feeling dejected over my part-time business, I called up a close friend, and fellow UCLA student, to discuss my state of affairs. He laughed and immediately suggested I hop online and sign up with Flinja where he was getting more jobs offering his services as a computer repairman than he knew what to do.
Now, not only has my business grown hundredfold in such a short amount of time since signing up on Flinja, but I’ve also personally hired other Flinjas – the quality of students and alumni to choose from to get the job done is remarkable!
As a female private tour guide, safety is always a concern, and so I’ve never been a fan of using Craigslist to get more work. But with Flinja, I love knowing that my clients are in the UCLA network and that I can see who they are as well as get to read their reviews and ratings. The well-thought-out secure payment system is also awesome, as I never have to worry about whether or not I will get paid.
Flinja has created an experience that is beyond compare!
