We've listened to your feedback and we have added a new feature, Super Experiences. We wanted to raise the quality of the experience on the app and as well as rewarding guides who make exceptional experiences. We want to highlight and showcase the best experiences on our platform and to better connect our users to higher-quality experiences. By creating a Super Experience, we will push the experience to more users and hence attract more people to go on your experiences. With an expected increase of 30% in exposure, you are very likely to earn more.
If you're new to making a FreeGuides Experience, I recommend checking out our beginner blogs to help you get started!
What is a Super Experience?
Super Experiences are the crème de la crème of FreeGuides Experiences. These experiences go above and beyond to provide an adventure to their Explorers, as well as setting a shining example for other Guides. The FreeGuides quality team will determine whether or not the experience is at that status. We will help you by providing you with constant feedback on the improvements you can take to making a Super Experience.

How to Make a Super Experience?
There are a few criteria you need will to meet to make your Super Experience! You could either make changes to your existing experience or create a brand new adventure. Your experience needs to:
Tell a Story: The experience needs to be a journey that allows explorers to have an in-depth understanding of the story you’re trying to tell.
Unique Adventure: Provide explorers with unique experiences that can’t just be found anywhere else; do this by utilising your knowledge of the area, showcasing local gems and any lesser-known locations!
Personalised: Have videos and audio messages to create a more personal relationship between you and those going on in your experience.
Checklist: Allow explorers to prepare for the experience by providing a checklist of what they need to bring or pre-book before the experience.
Feasible: The experience needs to be logistically possible - so no walking across rivers or oceans! If the experience requires traveling vehicles, such as bikes or cars, make sure you highlight this in the description or title.
Image Quality: The quality of the images need to be high quality - it’s even better if you include your own media to provide a sense of personalisation to your experience.
Why make a Super Experience?
A Super Experience will have a banner labeled on the top left corner of your experience page. By making it “Super”, FreeGuides will recommend the experience to more users and hence attract more people going on your experiences, which also means, the potential for more passive income. With 30% increased exposure than a regular experience, there comes a lot more opportunity for explorers to see your content.
Super Experience Example:

Once you meet all the above criteria, FreeGuides will review your updated experience and award it all the Super Experience banner! The process usually takes 1-2 weeks and the FreeGuides team will notify you via email immediately once it is successfully approved. While you wait, it will be a good option to register yourself on the mailing list and follow our Instagram account: @freeguides to stay updated with the FreeGuides community.
