Anyone who loves traveling and helping others might naturally gravitate towards a career as a travel agent. With an increasing amount of online competition in this industry, the best way to enjoy success with behind-the-scenes assistance might be to work from home with a host travel agency. This allows travel professionals to conduct business from their own residence, earn nice commissions, enjoy perks like travel discounts and carve out a niche career in the field. Work consists of using expertise in the travel field to help clients plan the perfect vacation package based on their needs and individual budgets.
How do you get yourself noticed? Can you create graphics? What should you say or not say in your social posts? Marketing can be one of the most challenging aspects of running a business, and it can be overwhelming. At Travel Planners International, we’re striving to make the difference to our Advisors and helping every step of the way. This is why we have partnered with TIMA – Travel Industry Marketing Association. This partnership will create a vast and meaningful set of marketing tools to assist our 4100+ Travel Advisors in developing and rebuilding their businesses.
As an industry leader in marketing, sales, and business development, TIMA provides Advisors with relevant and useful tools for growth. With a heavy focus on strengthening the partnership and communication between suppliers and advisors, and targeting social media, blog posts, digital content, and branding, TIMA strives for an optimal marketing and sales experience for travel sellers. When combined with TPI’s network of Advisors and suppliers, this focus on business services will provide a crucial market advantage.
“Our Travel Advisors and agency partners will be the ultimate beneficiary of this strategic partnership as we provide leading travel marketing assistance, technology, and resources to help them continue to increase sales and drive new revenues,” said Jenn Lee, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at TPI. “By combining the helpful tools, support, and fulfillment services that TIMA provides, with our free email marketing programs, award-winning Ship Talk and Resort Talk video series, Advisor to Advisor community, and the benefits we reap through our consortia Ensemble, this is for sure going to be a huge success! We look forward to the collaboration and our future partnership together.”
The collective strengths of both companies will result in offering our TPI Advisors a Marketing Dashboard equipped with all things required for education, training, sales, and promotion. Advisors will enjoy supplier campaigns ready for download and distribution, social media packs, supplier communication templates, access to a copyright-friendly video and image library, and more.
“We are very excited about the new partnership with TPI,” said Kulin Strimbu, President/CEO of TIMA. “Our business goal is to provide a valuable set of sales and marketing tools for Travel Advisors and suppliers to more easily and effectively work together.
