Travel Sales Made Easy!

Presented by TravelResearchOnline.

You know, almost everyone will tell you that the only way to succeed is marketing, marketing, and more marketing. This is great advice- except it’s not completely true.

Do you want to “Get Rid of the C.R.A.P.” that is holding you back and give yourself permission to fully engage?

This pandemic has set our industry back at least twenty years and there is more competition from direct bookings and other agencies than ever.

Unless you want to go down the rabbit hole of competing on price.You must do a better job of closing sales. But we typically don’t try harder because we don’t want to feel like a “sleazy” salesperson. But…

What if I told you, selling doesn’t have to be sleazy, in fact it is the best service you can provide for your clients – how would that make you feel?
As we emerge from this pandemic, the way suppliers support advisors financially, locally, and with fam trips – will change dramatically.

Previously, they invested heavily at the consortia levels. Now with their limited resources, they will concentrate on the advisors who sell their products.

Most of us became travel advisors because we like to help people and of course travel more. But you can’t do these things without customers. That’s why turning prospects into clients is the best service you can provide!

Travel Sales Made Easy will help you sell more so that when we emerge from this pandemic, and we will, you will have loyal clients to serve, the full support of your preferred suppliers, and when it’s safe – travel again.

In this free educational webinar, you will receive an overview of the proven system that will help you create loyal clients and receive the support you deserve from your suppliers.

You will learn:
– The natural process of selling without feeling sleazy.
– How to find qualified prospects without spending a dime on marketing.
– How you can create sustainable sales success in 30 days or less.
– And much more
