Whether you're jet-setting to the world's fanciest hotels or just scoping out the newest restaurant down the street, you love to share your experiences with the Gogobot community. As a Gogobot Pro, you're an active member of the site who knows what's what when it comes to getting out and seeing what there is to see in the world. You help others plan trips, tell everyone about your favorite hotels, restaurants, bars, and things-to-do — and you can't wait for the next Gogobot Pro party and the awesome Gogobot swag!
Are you a Pro? Here's what we look for!
You're a real boy (and/or girl!): that is, you are a real person, writing real reviews. Gogobot's philosophy is that reviews from people you know are better than reviews from people you don't. Using a real name, having a real picture, and being authentic in your interactions is the best way to get to know someone.
-Tis' far better to give AND receive: you're an active member of the Gogobot community and a traveler at heart. Whether you're currently trekking around the world or haven't left your hometown in years, you've written reviews, you've helped other members plan everything from their dream vacations to their in-laws' yearly visit, and you share photos or use our mobile app to Gogobot wherever you are!
-We are family: and, like a family, you welcome all new members with open arms. You comment on postcards and reviews, you share your insider tips and make every new Gogobot member feel special. You foster a spirit of community and are, generally, awesome and fun to interact with and be around. In short, we totally want you to come over for dinner on Sunday nights.
In the end, though, it really comes down to how you fit into the Gogobot community. There are no rules that are set-in-stone, and there are no hard-and-fast benchmarks to meet. Number and recency of reviews are important criteria, but they're not the be-all, end-all. We want all our Pros to be a part of the Pro family, so we make our selections carefully to ensure that all new Pros love travel, Gogobot, and each other, as much as we do!
Gogobot Pro F.A.Q.Back to Top
Why do I want to be a Gogobot Pro?
Aside from our eternal love, gratitude, and devotion, there are a few more tangible perks that await all Gogobot Pros: You get to join a community of the most prolific, fun, influential travelers and people-about-town in the world, invites to super swank events, limited edition Gogobot Pro swag, and, of course, that shiny Gogobot Pro badge that will follow you around the site, letting everyone know that they’re interacting with a total badass.
I think I should have made Pro, or know someone who should. How can I make that happen?
When it comes down to it, we have our eyes and ears open and, when the time is right, we’ll let you know. You can always feel free to shoot us an email at Community@Gogobot.com if you feel you’ve been passed over or, even better, if you want to make sure we’ve noticed another member of the Gogobot community.
Once I’m in, how long do I hold the title?
Until the end of that calendar year! At the end of each year, the Gogobot community team will look over all of the Pros from the previous year, as well as all the potential new Gogobot Pros, and decide who has earned the right to call themselves Pro for the next year.
Where do you have parties & events for Pros?
Anywhere and everywhere -- but especially in the following cities. Be sure to follow the community manager nearest you on Gogobot, Twitter, and Facebook (and update your Gogobot "current city") for updates on what’s going on in your local Gogobot community!
