Everyone’s heard of ‘affiliate marketing’. ‘Digital nomad’ is probably the buzzword of the century. And if you are reading this you’ve probably had companies promising that you can ‘quit your job and become a full time traveller’. Lets then first off clarify – our community is different. We aren’t trying to sell you a dream (ask our existing Travel Ambassadors). And we sure aren’t asking you to quit your job (right now anyway, let’s not get ahead of ourselves ?).
We are passionate about beautiful places, but even more so about beautiful people.
Our mission as a company and as a team is to build a global community of friends – in 1) our clients, 2) business partners and 3) Travel Ambassadors. We are passionate about beautiful places, but even more so about beautiful people. After all, a journey is best measured in the people we meet, not in the miles we travel. You think so too? Are you nodding your head in front of the screen in agreement? Then hey! You are just the person we are looking for. We invite you to become part of the FOLLOW ALICE FAMILY.
So basically – we want to pay you, our Travel Ambassadors, for sharing our brand. This is instead of conventional advertising tools such as Google or Facebook. Our business is founded upon word of mouth marketing, and being a Travel Ambassador is really as simple as recommending a friend. Ambassadors are key players at Follow Alice.
Over 80% of buyers, according to Nielsen, say that they trust recommendations from people they know above all other forms of advertising. In other words, we could spend a load on telling everyone about how great we are at Follow Alice (because y’know, we’re pretty amazing ?). But it would never trump a word-of-mouth reference from family, friends or a professional network. And yes, you guessed it, thats where you come in…
You help us by spreading the Follow Alice word and referring potential clients in the form of friends and family, and we help you by paying commission for each one that turns into a sale. We get clients, and you get some minimal effort extra cash your pocket. Win win, easy peasy!
Promote on your own schedule, and when you refer a potential client to us, we will thank you in cash.
YOU ARE NOT A SALESPERSON.
Apologies for the capitals. Just needed to get that out there. So, now we’ve got your attention, we would like to reiterate one point. The idea of this programme is not for you to be a salesman/woman. We don’t want you to sell the trips. We want you to simply chat about us and send them our way. Thats your job done. Leave the hard work to us and our expert locals.
And no need to scribble down names and figures in your notebook btw. We have created the Ambassador Playground so you can easily keep track of your referrals. Earn by both 1) getting clicks to the Follow Alice website and 2) referring your friends to go on our trips. Store all your efforts in your very own dashboard. Keep track of your sales. Control when you get paid. Effectively have your own little business hosted on our website. Put as much effort in as you like. Earn as much as you like. Find out more and apply now!
Just kidding. There’s no catch (bet you were waiting for one though huh? ?). We want you to be part of our community and refer us clients. You want to be part of our community, earn some cash, travel more, and have fun – we’re basically a match made in heaven!

“I feel at home with Follow Alice. I suppose it’s the personalised connection, non-hard selling marketing approach, openness, adventure seeking, go local approach that are all motives for me to become an Ambassador” @keepitirie
Be part of something brilliant

- Help to develop adventures from the ground up.
- Get invited to special adventures and benefit from preferred Ambassador rates on all of our packages.
- Got an idea for a trip? Lets develop something together.
- Earn enough commission and use it to spend on an adventure with us.
- Go on your own holidays and let us promote your content.
- Come along to our annual Community Retreats.
The Follow Alice Community Retreat 2018
This year’s get together was held in magical Morocco. We climbed to the summit of Mount Toubkal, the roof of North Africa. We explored the colourful souks of Marrakech, went quad biking in the desert, tried our hand at some local dances and ate lots of delicious local food. Our community retreats are all about travelling with friends – old and new – and celebrating the amazing people that make Follow Alice tick. As an Ambassador you get invited to all of our community events.
Promote your content and passions
Are you a writer, blogger, artist or photographer? Do you have a project that you would like promote? Are you raising money for charity? We encourage our Ambassadors to contribute articles, blog posts and images for our website, social media, communications and marketing material. When you provide amazing content for us (the only condition being that they fit with our brand and values) we’ll plug and promote you as much as we can in return. You are our partners and we are invested in your success. Lets help each other!
“I travel for work, visiting the most amazing places. Now I can inspire others and travel even more. Brilliant!” @josefinafontana
Enjoy absolute freedom
We’re your friends, not your boss. When you sign up as an Ambassador, you can ‘work’ whenever, wherever and as much or as little as you want. There are no commitments. We provide you with the tools to do what you love to do and earn some money and travel credits in the process. And because you are pretty much doing the ‘work’ already, it won’t feel like you are doing much extra! Talk, promote, and refer Follow Alice on your own schedule, and when you refer a potential client to us, we will thank you in cash.
Add to your CV and get a glowing reference from us
Adding Follow Alice Travel Ambassador to your CV and LinkedIn profile is a great addition. Employers nowadays are looking for way more than your experience and qualifications. They want to see that you are an interesting person who has experienced the world. What better way to demonstrate this than with this title on your CV? And what a great talking point at any interview! Oh, and we’re more than happy to provide references too.
“As an entrepreneur my-self, I aim to constantly surround myself with curious, young people who inspire me.” @nina_clark
We thank our travel ambassadors in cash
Let’s face it, you’re going to be telling everyone about your amazing adventures anyway – so why not get paid for it?! And yes – you DO get paid. When your friends and followers book a Follow Alice trip using your personalised code, we thank you for your hard work. This can be in the form of commission or travel credits – up to you! Earn $1 per unique website referral and $150 per client referral. Got any questions about how this works? Get in contact with us, we would love to hear from you.
