As a new travel agent, selling travel can be difficult. We’re sharing some of our favorite tricks of the trade that we know and love. Keep reading to learn how you can implement these tips into your process and convert leads into booked vacation packages.
1. Start by Making Your Proposals More Visual
Many beginners struggle to sell travel and close sales due to bland and boring proposals. Spend a little extra time and add some flair and creativity to your process, and your proposals will go a long way in closing client sales.
Most people are visual learners and seek out engaging content. Because of that, it’s important to make every step of your process a visual experience. If you’re emailing quotes or discussing proposals over the phone, it’s difficult to convey what the traveler’s destination will actually look like. You want to really sell the package to them and immerse them in the experience before they ever book, so take the extra time to make your proposals extra special.
2. Sell While You’re on Location
If you’re going on a trip soon, consider hopping on a quick live stream to talk about the destination and upcoming deals. While live, invite people to inquire with you and set up a consultation. Live videos and videos on location tend to perform a lot better marketing-wise, so use this tactic to its full advantage. Also, be sure to take b-roll footage to use in your marketing content to sell travel moving forward.
